elfa Expandable Valet Rods
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.

Great idea but came up short
I love the valet rod idea but my shelves have clothes under them so when I have something on the rod it doesn't fit right. This would have been perfect if it extended out a little further. So sad I had to return it. Back to the drawing board.

Expandable Valet Rod
My husband and I each got an expandable valet rod to help organize our clothes for work. We like to put our clothes together the night before, and this rod helps to arrange it all. I also find that the rod is great for setting aside different items that I want to pack for vacation, so I don't wear it during the work week.

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.
