Dublet Adjustable Closet Rod Expander by UmbraÂ®
Great for dorm
This is intended to update a previous review. A local store had an older version on display with small hooks that looked like they would not fit over a 1.5-inch diameter wooden rod. However, the boxes in stock had the word "new" and indicated it now will fit rods with a diameter of up to 1.75" (the pictures on the box still show the older, smaller hooks). I can confirm that the hooks on the one I purchased are much larger than before and should fit over any rod that fits standard hangers.

Doubled My Closet Space!
I chose this closet rod over others because of the great reviews I read about it here. I wanted to make sure that I could have enough room between my existing rod and the lower bar and I do! The rope/pully adjustment of this expander is very easy to use--I could adjust it with clothes on the bar, which allowed me to find the perfect height to keep my pants and skirts just off the floor. The large metal hooks at the top work fine with my wire closet bar and I'm sure they would fit over any type of rod. The bar slides to adjust and I was a little nervous that it didn't grip or stick together, but when I put clothes on it it stays in place perfectly! I am very pleased with this purchase and would buy another in the future if I need one!

Excellent idea for child's room!
My 6 year old likes to pick out his own shirts but has trouble reaching them, so I bought this. He loves it! No more "Mom, can you help me with a shirt"? It's great!
