Measure how far you can reach with one arm, and put the cleat a little closer to the front edge than that.
I did kind of think maybe that was a little deep, but I figured since it was a corner it wouldn't so bad. Only a little bit would be far away and I would put the stuff I wasn't immediately using back there, but perhaps I will do the strip thing like you suggested. And I did originally think about going lower, but bending over a little bit for a while kills my back, like during washing dishes. Which is funny cause I am fine when it comes to firewood and that kind of thing.
