Rear Closet Bounce

Hi All, I would like to hear from the rear closet model owners. what kind of mods have you installed or concocted to keep your hanging clothes from leaping from the rod in transit and ending up on the floor? If you have any pics, please share them.
Thanks!

My closet is in the front cap but I have the same problem. Seems the closet walls flex during transit and the rod drops out of the cups that it sits into. I'm thinking I may just replace it with a standard metal closet rod (the kind you find in houses that slides to fit).

In your case, can you install a small screw through each cup into the rod to keep it from jumping out?
My rod stays put but the clothes hangers leap from the rod and commit suicide.

You may want to search the Internet for non slip hangers

I would try a spring rod, it should keep tension and not pop out of the cups. Cheap at somewhere like Bed, Bath and Beyond.

Not looking for non slip hangers as the clothing doesn't slip off, the hanger jumps off of the rod. The thumbnail you attached is not a non slip, it is a locking jaw which may help if I can find them. I was trying to keep the hangers as we simply transfer from the house to the camper and looking for what others have done to prevent it from occurring.

We have the same problem in our Greyhawk. The closet is in the far aft end of the bedroom. With the long overhang from the rear axle it gets pretty bouncy and the hanging clothes jump off of the rod.

It doesn't mess up my hanging stuff as it's hard to wrinkle flannel shirts. DW does not care to see her blouses heaped on the closet floor, though.

Wrap a length of paracord around the pole. Anchor the ends to a pad eye at each end.

Hanger goes between the wrapped cord and around the pole

About a five cent fix.

Our Jayco has factory installed black wire loom tubing on the wood rods which keeps everything in place.

Our previous two motorhomes had nothing and everything would up on the closet floor.

Thanks anyway. This question is directed to fifth wheel owners as it is posted in the fifth wheel category and motorhomes don't get near the bounce as a 40'+ 5er.
