Hangers jumping off the closet bar fix.

We got tired of finding most or all of our hanging clothes, jackets, etc. laying on the bottom of the closet.

The simple fix. I took 2 hangers and put them on the closet rod with one pointed in and one out. Then wrapped a couple inches of tape around where the coat hangers meet just below the bar. Ends up like motel coat hangers.

Takes up a little more space since all I had were plastic hangers. Old fashion metal ones would take up less space if that is a problem.



Previously I tried foam pipe wrap around the pole, bending metal coat hangers and had no luck.

Roger you are a true budget watcher.

We purchased these. If you need more than 6 money does become an issue!

Wife came up with our fix. Spring loaded plastic clips, push everything to one side and place clip up tight.

Never had that problem. My wife's closet is usually so full that nothing moves in 200 miles.

Got a little experiment you may want to try You are pretty close in Western distances. Chaco Canyon is exquisite.

THAT is the ultimate wife test. Do not bet that her clothes will stay put. Some are bound to fall down. That may just encourage her.

We stopped using plastic hangers as it took too long to always have to button the top buttons. Instead I wrapped a piece of water pipe insulation, taped the joint with duct tape, purchased "felt wrapped hangers" so the clothes wouldn't slide off and then I bent to hooks on the hanger close so they wouldn't jump off the bar.

I’ll match US 60 between Show Low and Springerville with anything you got �� and we do it 4-6 times a summer.

And/or US 54 between Dalhart and Guymon. That is usual drive to and from farm partnership meetings so it is a regular test of all bolts and shackles.

Been to Chaco Canyon by the way. My family is from NM.

My wife reminded me that we have all wooden hangers which also might make a difference. That was right after she said “real funny” when I mentioned her closet situation.

Putting the hanger on the rod "backwards" usually eliminates the problem.
