Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 54 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by I never knew I always wanted these! I have two of these in my laundry room - one near the dryer to hang things immediately out of the dryer. Another over the utility sink to hang things that might need to drip dry. And of course a few in the master closet for setting out the next day's outfits. In my dual purpose guest bedroom/craft room I changed out the hanging rods for shelving in the closet. So I installed a few of these so guests can hang those few things that must hang. They always say they need some of these for their house. April 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So convenient I just bought two more of the valet rods for my Elfa closet. (I LOVE my Elfa closet system.) The valet rod is almost the best feature in this system. After nine months of wishing that I had another one I finally bought another one. Especially great on laundry day when both hands are full of clothes on hangers to be put away. Also very helpful when packing for a trip. p.s. They also install quite easily. October 21, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by love it but plastic is brittle love this item - just want to give others (and the Container Store) a heads-up that the clear plastic parts become very brittle over time. I have attempted to move one, only to have it snap off and become unusable. I later tried to move a second one (thinking I had just not been careful enough the first time). The second one snapped in a different place (but same type of plastic). I have used Elfa products for years without any problem, so I am surprised at this construction. Container store was kind enough to send replacements. July 3, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by 12" Valet Rod Ineffective I have Elfa products that are 35 years old and still work as well as their first day of use. The Valet Rod concept is wonderful, but when used with 12" ventilated shelving, the 12" valet rod does not extend out over the edge of the regular hanging clothes. The items on the Valet Rod "drape" over the hanging clothes, causing wrinkles in both sets of clothing. I hope Elfa takes note and re-engineers this wonderful idea. Until then, skip the 12" Valet Rod. October 17, 2014

Answer: 
These valet rods are specifically designed for 16'' shelves, or 12'' shelves. We do not carry one for 20'' shelves.

Can the 16" be used with a 12" shelf?

I got a 12" for my 12" shelf and 16" for my 16" shelf, but the 16" is the only one that pulls out long enough clear the clothes rod underneath so that the item on the valet is hanging in front of the row of clothing, instead of draping over it. This makes the 12" useless IMO but I'm concerned that the more shallow shelf might not "fit" the longer-expanding valet rod.

Answer: 
The elfa Expandable Valet Rods are not interchangeable. The 12" fits on a 12" deep Ventilated Shelf while the 16" fits the 16" deep Ventilated Shelf.

I was considering using the valet rod in lieu of a standard hanging rod to permanently (i.e., not temporarily) hang several long-hanging garments, e.g. suits or coats. The idea is that these garments would essentially always be "on display". Will the valet rod be able to handle all that weight on a permanent basis?

I'd like to use this with a 16 inch shelf basket rather than a 16 inch ventilated shelf. Are the undersides of the two items similar enough to make the valet rod compatible with the basket?

To install a Valet Rod, it is necessary to remove the elfa décor Fascia first. The Fascia can be put back in place once the Valet Rod has been secured.

Aeli Park splits her time living on both coasts - in New York and Los Angeles. It's her California home, though, where she escapes the hustle and bustle of Manhattan and is creating a cozy retreat. The artist agent purchased her lovely 100-year-old Craftsman-style home, "The Swanson House," from the family of the original owner. As she restores it, she's trying to modernize it without compromising the integrity of the home's rich and charming history. First up, the master suite.
