Existing storage racks for guitars and similar instruments (for example, banjos, mandolins, and bass guitars) hold instruments in a number of ways. For example, the instruments hang from their necks just below their headstocks or they rest on bottom edge of their lower bouts and lean their backs against the device at the upper bout, or they lean their necks against the device. In contrast to storing guitars, cases such as guitar cases and other similar instrument cases are generally stored in closets by rotating the case so that it rests against a closet wall. There are existing case racks that rely on rotating the cases. Alternatively, cases are tipped back to rest on a wall or pieces of furniture. Tukhemin work like tipping a case back to lean against one wall and rotating it clockwise at the same time to lean against another perpendicular wall as if in an inside corner. This simple solution only replicates the attitude of a case held by Tukhemin; it does not address all the problems that are solved by Tukhemin. For example, the lid binds when trying to open it while the case is leaning back against one wall and rotated against a perpendicular wall. There are other problems like the relative insecurity of simply using the walls for support and the immobility of the arrangement.
