Default Diy trimmer racks?

I was wondering if anyone ever fabricated trimmer racks?

I picked up a flatbed trailer that doesnt have stake pockets. I have to build sides and thought I mine as well make the racks too.

I dont see how it would be that complicated. Just use some angle iron, padlocks, etc.

Any ideas?

yeah no locks either.... I might have to buy one. I thought since I was going to have to buy 8 pieces of c channel or angle iron. I could just get 2 that are longer and put the trimmers on with a small modification to hold them.
