Fixing a Clothing Rack during COVID-19 Lock-down

My clothes hanging rack is broken for a bit of time has developed a crack. It’s obviously time to fix it. I already have a piece of aluminum pipe on hand that should serve as a clothes hanging pole. The only problem is that I don’t have the hardware to mount the pole to the wall, at least not easily during the COVID-19 lock-down.

So, time to home-brew my own solution. First thing would be designing the fastening piece to attach to the wall. I measured the diameter of the pole and the diameter of the screws I have on hand, and designed this in OnShape. (model available here)

The 3D Rendering of the Mounting Bracket

Works great. A pretty good job given the current circumstances.
