Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bonny Easy to use and store
I have no place to hang laundered clothes in my utility room. After lots of research I decided on this rack, and it's perfect!
Although light weight, it's sturdy enough to accommodate a lot of clothes and I use it for hang drying too. The best part is when I'm finished with it, I can fold it and hang it out of sight on the back side of the door (using an over the door rack).
So glad I purchased this item!

I love this rack...it holds a ton of clothes on hangers to dry. It is light weight and easy to move around. It also folds flat so I can just slip it in a little space next to my dryer when I'm not using it.
It's not a heavy metal object, but I liked that so I can move it around easily.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BeckyBrandon Easiest Drying Rack Ever
This rack folds completely flat, perfect for hiding away in our one-bedroom apartment. Better still, it is the easiest and best way to dry clothes.
I take all my shirts out of the washer, put them on hangers, and hang them on this rack. They hang dry, free of wrinkles and saved the wear-and-tear of the drier. Plus -- no shrinking. If you have a yard with a laundry line, good for you, but we apartment dwellers have other challenges. When the shirts are dried, they are ready to go -- no other fussing required to stick them in the closet.
I have to confess that I first assembled it incorrectly. I just brought it back to The Container Store, and they whisked it away to their special workshop, where they fixed it, and handed it back, better than before.That's the best service I've ever seen, anywhere.
I even bought this product for my father, because he was sick and couldn't go outside to use the laundry line in his yard. He also found it was easy to stow away when not in use.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by EmayPA Twisted and unstable
As another reviewer noted, and upon which I commented the following:
It doesn't fold flat, and when open is completely torqued, twisted around, lopsided, unstable. I don't know if I got a defective one, but it is terrible. I think I'm going to put it in the car and have the CS take it apart and put it back together for me.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Salediva Waste of money
Easy to assemble but way too light and too easy to come apart. Bough for my laundry room to hang clothes to dry. Really haven't used it much. I don't think its very durable. This is the one time that reviews don't seem to be accurate.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Cazeson Happy clothes hanger
I have very little space to hang clothes to dry in my current home so when I saw this I was very happy. After I opened it and put it together (which is very easy to do) I wasn't too sure if it would be sturdy enough to handle hanging clothes on it. I was wrong! This works beautifully and it is easy to store away. I love this and consider it one of the best buys for me of the year.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by LalaNH Great moveable/stashable drying rack
I have now purchased two of these clothes racks, both online. They are perfect for what I need: a space-saving lightweight drying rack for hanging relatively light clothes, which folds up and stashes away when not in use. Mine arrived in good shape, packed securely, undamaged and not missing any parts. I've had one for a couple years, using it about once a week, and it's held up great. No collapses, no rust even though I use it to hang-dry wet clothes. As other reviews have said, this rack is probably not heavy-duty enough for heavy use, like storing a bunch winter coats. But for my needs, perfect.

Â by BrooklynLady23 Excellent, How Did I Live Without It!!
I was hesitant to purchase this item after reading customer reviews. After a little consideration, I went to the 6th Ave ContainerStore in NYC and purchased. While being checked-out, I asked the employee if there had been returns of the item at that location and relayed the online reviews of some. She stated that there were no returns to her recollection & a lot of the issues customers have at times are due to customer error-not a defect in the product. She assured me that I could return it if it was defective. I firmly believe a lot of the issues are due to customer error and possibly damage that may occur if one has the item shipped. I assembled it in a few minutes and hung my clothes to dry. In the past these items would hang on my shower curtain rod (only to be moved & placed back every time I showered), or over my dining room chairs. Now my clothes, mostly dresses, hang nicely and dry quickly. I also purchased the Container Store's white plastic hangers to use when hanging the wet items. If, like me, you have items that need to hang dry, you'll be completely satisfied. FYI, my rack did not tip over, even when I had 6 items hanging on one side and none on the other. I store the rack out of site behind my living room sectional.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by mimzamia Okay for a few items
Rack was easy to assemble. I planned to use it for items that needed to be ironed or steamed. It seemed a little flimsy and wobbly, but I went ahead and carefully loaded a dozen or so garments on the rack. The rack held for maybe an hour then fell over. There is definitely a trade-off here between an easy-to-store rack and functionality.

Â by Lynn1029 Benefits of a Great Rack! (Folding X-Frame rack:))
The Folding X-Frame Garment Rack has a great number of benefits. They include: will handle many garments at a time, light weight and folds easily to store flat; useful for garments to dry on prior to ironing or to store extra clothes on thus providing more space in dwellings with small closets and a great value for the price.
I have even used the top of the rack's corners to dry extra slacks/shorts or for personal items you do not want to put in the dryer.

Easy assembly, except that some of the bars required sanding for the end caps to fit.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by mcnj Great purchase for apartment living
I've really please with this product. It fits underneath the bed and can be pulled out when I'm hanging dresses or long pants to dry. It assembles very easily. Sometimes I have to reassemble pieces after it's been folded, but that's very simple to do.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jndee Best gift ever
Bought it for myself, then one for my Mom.
She loves that when she's done using it she can store it in closet or when visitors come under a bed. I think it's a nice bridal shower gift for the wishing well and good for the environment as well!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by bac51 Missing parts
The garment rack itself serves its purpose but one of the push buttons was missing. I'm forced to use it because I bought it in Southlake, Tx and brought it home with me to Oklahoma. Not worth a trip back to the Dallas area to take it back. Probably wind up putting a screw in it and using it for garage sales.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Spraks101 A much needed upgrade
This is the second X-Frame garment rack I purchased from The Container Store. The first was several years ago. I had to replace that one with this new one because the screws that held the frame together kept coming loose and the stand would lean to the side. I had to prop it up against a wall to keep it upright. I bought this new one and was really surprised and happy to find that it doesn't have screws - just some plastic molded pieces that hold the bars together! I put it together quickly without any tools and can already tell this one will be much better! It's also slightly larger than my last one. Great upgrade!

I use this to hang laundry such as jeans that I don't want to put in the dryer. Because it is upright they dry really fast. I also use it when ironing to hang the clothes when done. I fold this up when not in use and it doesn't take up too much space. Simple design and so useful

This garment rack is a life saver. I purchased 2 of these, 1 for myself and 1 went to college with my son. Great to air dry clothes or for a temporary rack when closet space is an issue. Lightweight and folds up with ease to store when not it use. Love this product!

I love this product for drying blouses I would have otherwise hung on hangers over the door frame. I purchased this folding x-frame garment rack and assembled it in about 5 minutes. It is sturdy enough for me to hang my blouses to dry and folded compactly for storage in the corner. Kudos to the inventor of this product and to the Container Store for selling it!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MemphisRed Sturdy garmet rack
This rack is far more substantial than I thought.
It takes less than 15 minutes to assemble. No tools required.
I will heed the warning about placing items equally on both sides as I can see how it would tip over.

This clothes rack is very simple, light, folds up for storage easy however since its simple & light, doesn't hold much clothes without wobbling. I would recommend it if you only have very few clothes to hang. My purpose was to hang my entire laundry to hang-dry, however didn't work. I took it back and purchased a stronger rack.

Love this foldable laundry stand. I'll put dress clothes in dryer for 5 minutes or so and then hang them up to air dry. Saves me lots of time ironing as they usually just need to be touched up with an iron or no ironing at all. Great for wet winter coats and gloves too!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Keynesian Very Nice To Have
I would actually give this 4 1/2 stars, only because the first one would not go together. The plastic corner was too small or tight to fit onto the metal tube. I exchanged it with the greatest of ease. And I'm now very happy to have this. It does fold together nicely to stow out of the way. It seems nice for the environment to use this instead of a dryer.

This is my second purchase of this garment rack. It's great to use when you are having a party and you don't have enough closet space to hang up outerwear. I put it out in the hallway outside of my apartment and it holds a tremendous amount of clothing, umbrellas etc. without taking up a lot of space.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MavisJ Great Helper on Laundry Day
I have had this rack for many years. Great little helper on laundry day. I use it for hanging clothes as they come out of the dryer so they don't get wrinkled. And for the clothes that require ironing, I use it to hang them after I've finished ironing them. Saves on time and steps as I don't have to run to the closet after ironing each piece.
I love that it takes up minimal storage space. It's also very sturdy! I would highly recommend this product.

Purchased this item many years ago and used it weekly til it actually fell apart after moving so many times - - have looked for it ever since to repurchase - it is priceless! THRILLED to have found it and it is great for hanging clothes to air dry indoors or to "pre-dry" before fluffing in the dryer. GREAT ITEM!
