Double Hang Closet Rod
Really helped out with a space crunch
Just downsized to a smaller apartment with a much smaller closet and, rather than have to buy more closet shelving and hanging rods, I was hoping to find an easier/less-expensive solution. This was it! Very easy to install and easily held another 25-30 shirts, freeing up the space I needed. I was concerned about the strength of the hangers and the rod, but once I opened the box and saw the quality of the construction, my fears were allayed. Nice job, Container Store.

Great Item, modified to make it adjustable.
This is exactly what I was looking for, except for baby clothes it is just a little too long and close to the floor. I just added several (25 each side) hex nuts onto the metal rods before I put on the wooden closet rod and voila, 6 inches shorter. I can now remove or add as many as needed to make it longer or shorter. Any sort of bead or object that is able to be threaded on will work, possibly something more decorative or paint the hex nuts. Mine aren't really visible, so I just left as is. I will also paint the rod white to match the rod in the closet.

I went to purchase another kind of this item on sale. Saw this one at an even better price. I am happy with the choice. It's sturdy and looks organized in my small closet. I have my slacks hung on it under my blouse and tops.

not for clothes horses
I bought 3 of these and 2 of them cracked in half within a few months. I stopped using the third to prevent another mess of wrinkled clothes and bought the Dublet by Umbra version instead. (That one is great and far more sleek looking than this one, btw) The substantial wooden dowel is actually joined just with glue and a zig-zag cut to fit the 2 pieces together in the middle. I'm sure I had more weight on this than intended, but why not just use a solid piece of wood? They would still be working great if that were the case.
