Hangers keep falling off in closet during travel

Anyone have any ideas on how to stop clothes hangers from falling during travel. Maybe use wire hangers or something?. .. Yup.... I'm a newbie....

I was talking to someone about this earlier this week. I showed them these:

We bought those "Stay-Put" hangers from Camping World. They clamp on tight to the closet rod.

I saw a cool hack the other day to put a section of pool hose over the rod. The hose has ribs that are spaced evenly for wire hangers, and apparently it keeps them in place while traveling.

I read that alternating the direction the hangers go over the rod works.

Seems like the best that could do would be to stop half of them from falling off. Certainly would be easy to try.

OR, pack it tight enough that nothing moves! And if it does, it isn't going far!!

My wife has no problem bringing enough clothes to do this, and kindly uses most of my closet as well so my few items are safe.

Here are a few options that have worked for me. Depending on the witdth of the closet you can simply put either an expanding shower curtain or one of the camco fridge expanding rods in the shorter closets just above the hangers. This keeps the hangers from bouncing up and down and can be removed easily when you arrive.

The other option is to move the rod up tighter to the shelf or ceiling in the closet, but it makes removing and putting them back a little harder.

The packing works too, but I have had the whole rod come down.

I've tied a plastic grocery bag around several grouped hangers right below the curved area and that seemed to keep them from falling.

we use wood hangers that have metal hooks, just bend the hook a small amount so it won't come off the rod without some force, also works fine with wire hangers, don't have to buy anything
