Storing My Backpack Blower

Can anyone suggest how to store the Backpack Blower (LB6002) when not in use?  I would like to hang my new blower flat against the wall, but can see no visible means of support from which to hang it.  Its bulky, tall nature (even without the 2 blower tubes) takes up a lot of shelf space.  Where do you store yours?

I don't have the backpack blower, but wonder if the handle is strong enough to hang the backpack from?

Oregon Mike -- Thanks for the suggestion.  Actually, I had considered that, but the straps hold the backpack about 5" proud of the wall.  I have been looking for some sort of hook that will mount on my cinder block wall and extend out 6" from the wall.  So far, no luck.  Still looking.

I've been hanging mine by the handle for about 6 month now with no problems. Just make sure the hook end you use isn't to big, It makes it difficult to remove when you want to use it.

Zimms -- Thank you for your comment.  By any chance, do you have a photograph of the hook you use, and do you remember where you purchased it?  Do you hang it with the straps against the wall?  I would appreciate any detailed information you can provide. Looking forward to your reply.

Zimms -- I get it.  I presume I could mount a long hook like yours into my cinder block wall.  If I do it the way you have it, I could set the hook at just the right height for me. Then I would back up to it, bend my knees a little, slip my arms into the straps, stand up straight unhooking it, and just walk away from the wall with the backpack on. Cool!  Thanks, you are a genius.
