DIY Cop Caddy

Clothes, belt, radio, vest, etc… Police officers wear so much on a daily basis. It can be hard to keep it all together in one place, so getting ready for shift is a chore. It’s much easier to keep organized with this cop caddy.

The industrial look of the black iron pipe fits in with most any décor. The black iron is strong enough to hold a police belt and a vest without tipping over. It’s 37″ tall, some older children will be able to reach the top of the tray. I highly recommend securing your weapon in a safe or with a locking devise.

It took half a dozen trips to Lowe’s to find the correct pieces, but it was easy to put together. I’ve written down all the materials I used, hopefully that will save you some headaches. Just follow along connecting the numbers, like in the picture below. I used a pipe wrench to tighten it all together. Happy building!

      1. 3/4 in Black Iron Floor Flange Fitting x4

  1. I was able to collect all of the materials from my local hardware store, expect for the wooden tray. The materials cost around $110, but we love the industrial look and it will last a whole career. Definitely worth every penny!
