Â by BeverlyAnn Retro Fit for Thick Chrome Hangers
These â¿¿Easy Snapâ¿ hanger accessories have held up great for 4 years in my closet. What I didnâ¿¿t like about them was that they clipped onto unattractive plastic hangers. We have a large custom closet and I wanted my husbandâ¿¿s pant hangers to match all the rest of the chrome hangers. I decided to retro fit â¿¿Easy Snapâ¿ to my nice 3/16â¿ chrome wire hangers â¿¿sold at Container Store and other places. See Instruction Photos that I uploaded...sorry, it appears the App here turned the photo upside down. The â¿¿Easy Snapâ¿ will NOT fit chrome hangers without retro fitting it. I tried MANY things but what worked perfectly was non-sterile latex rubber tubing, sometimes used to make sling-shots. You can get the tubing almost anywhere including the big box stores or if you are a amazn prime member try there. You will need per hanger, approximately 5â¿ of tubing (cut in half the short way, then cut in half the long way to wrap it over the hanger). My tubing was a size 40 which measured: 3/16â¿ I.D. x 11/32â¿ O.D. x 5/64â¿ wall thickness. In actuality, it was too big so I suggest you buy a smaller size. Try 1/4â¿ Inside Diameter. If your tubing is too large some of it could show from underneath. Although mine showed, it didnâ¿¿t matter to me because my husbandâ¿¿s pants hang on the lower clothes rail, plus you canâ¿¿t see the rubber with pants on the hanger. Again, get the smaller 1/4â¿ rubber and you will not have the hanging tubing problem I had. The rubber makes the â¿¿Easy Snapâ¿ hanger VERY snug and absolutely will not twirl or twist when pulling the pants off the hanger. Fyi, like I said earlier, I've used these everyday for over 4 years; those who have said they dont work on their plastic hangers is because they had the more slimline plastic hangers. These work great on normal to medium to thick plastic hangers....And works to perfection, with a retro fit, on chrome clothes hangers. I hope all my time figuring this out and writing this review will make this an "Easy Snap" of a project for you :-)

These snap-on sleeves are a terrific solution to keep pants from slipping off hangers! They make regular plastic hangers into pants hangers in a flash, yet the sleeve doesn't have to remain permenantly. Very useful!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Aikenlady Best $1.29 I ever spent!
I originally bought a few of these to try and they were great. Just purchased a dozen more because we are going on a 3 week road trip with another couple in the same van. To minimize hanger space on the hanging bar, I wanted something I could put a pair of jeans and another pair of twill pants, then a shirt, then a sweatshirt or sweater...all on one hanger. These change the dynamics of how you can minimize hanging space, wow! They really make the tubular hanger sturdier and there is no slippage just like they are advertised. Had not seen them anywhere else but at The Container Store!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by kaellis495 Perfect solution
Plastic hangers are great, but they do not work well for slacks. They leave an ugly crease, and the hangers often bend. These hanger mates are the perfect solution. Your slacks stay in place, and do not slip off of the hanger. No more ugly creases either. Fantastic product.
