This is the one I mean, it is an official LR part and all. I have one of these and want to suspend it from my garage ceiling during winter, so for several months. Can these be suspended from just the D rings welded at four points for cargo nets? Or would that be too much weight on those four thin points? Basically I want to suspend it without slowly bending the tubing out of true.

You can hang it by the corner tabs without damage assuming the rack is not loaded down. But why not just rig it with 1" tube webbing loops in each corner on the rack tube?

Yea that could work too. I was not sure whether putting strapping against the tubing directly and then hanging it from four points would put too much weight on the points where the straps would be. Rack would be empty once hoisted.
