Yup, that picture shows how the clothes rods sit when in use. Level, or at a slight outward and down angle. When not in use, they just tip up and drop down into the hole in the stove top until they stop at the handle. And they are always at the firebox end of the stove.
The grate poker rod I made gets stored in the same place, but because of the bend needed to clear the grates, it sits more at an up angle. Dry towels could potentially slide down toward the stove's firebox.
