Why? Space saving or other reasons?

vertical shouldn't create suction which would over time, warp flight plates.

Drivers will eat through insulation and noodles. I wrapped mine in duct tape to help the cause a little. It made a big difference.

Are discs really heavy enough to cause damage to themselves like that? (stored vertically)

I can see the suction thing stacked on top of each other.

^^^Theoretically. Like glass, over time gravity/temperature will cause a sagging effect. With glass it takes several decades, and heat contributes largely. Plastic? Depends how hot it gets where the discs are. Maybe 10 years in 90-100* heat could show some effects. 68* environment? Probably death[ours] before disc-honor.

so, my fittings should be here today. I just gotta figure out dimensions.
anyone made one of these and figured out how far to space the two horizontals so the disc won't fall through?

When I stored my discs in totes and suspended them on top of pool noodles, the noodles were spaced 9" from outside to outside. Assuming a 2" noodle, that would put the spacing on your pipes at 7" on center.

They make PVC pipe insulation that is basically a pool noodle split with double stick tape at the seam. I used some to cover my center pole on my basket to dampen chain noise. Keeps the neighbors neighborly.
