Hello great people, I wanted to know if anyone had two of the brackets that goes with that beam that they would be willing to part with? I picked up the center beam yesterday from Ikea and they had no brackets available. So I am hopeful someone here will have extras available.

they are obviously expensive on ebay and everywhere...

you can just use a small square angle bracket upside down attached to the wall.

I bought joist hangers from Lowe's yesterday for $2 each. Looks like it will work fine and give me the height I need for the garage.

The secret of the U shaped channel design is inherent stiffness and they have a vertical bend at the lip to lock into. I think plain old bar stock of sufficient stiffness, offset by spacers (washers) from the mounting surface will also work. Just prevent forward and aft movement of the supports. Angle stock has the advantage of linear stiffness.
