InterMetroÂ® Garment Rack
This rack is so great! We added a shelf and took away the wheels and then got some great extras to hold stuff. This is in a very small bedroom that we use as a closet and it holds all of my husbands clothes and shoes, as well as all of our heavy sweaters and sweatshirts. We had one of the less expensive racks before, but it buckled and broke under the weight. This one is very heavy duty!
Unless you only need the basic one listed on the site, I would suggest picking up or buying this one in store so you can talk to a salesperson about all of the options.
Well worth the price!

Very sturdy, well built. The 3" casters allow it to just clear the doorway.
The only down side is that there is nothing to prevent the rod from sliding off the hook.
I drilled holes 1/2" from both ends of the rod and used wire ties to secure the rod to the hooks. The end caps hide the holes, and the wire ties ensure that the rod (and all the clothing) will stay in place.

Excellent quality for the price
Worked well in my very small closet after the previous closet bar pulled out of the wall. There are more customizable options on the market such as Elfa, but they are more costly and may not be as easy to install yourself, esp. if you don't have an assistant.
The end caps on the closet bar seem to be the weak link. I would have expected them to be made of more durable material and fit more tightly into place,since they serve the vital purpose of keeping the whole closet bar from sliding out!
The installation guide could be improved on. When they say "The beveled end of the sleeve should be at the top." this means the wider ends should be at the bottom. The wider ends are marked with dots, which would be very helpful to point out.
I recommend assembling the unit by laying it down until the bottom shelf is securely in place. After putting all 4 sleeves in position, slide the shelf down on all 4 posts. Then tap it into place, while lifting the post up off the floor. Start with a top post, and then do the post behind it.

Not enough closet space...this is a great solution! The lower shelf is adjustable which allows for additional storage. The shelf on top allows for even more storage. The weight capacity is something like 300 lbs., nothing will make this tip over. I purchased it in black and it looks very industrial. I shopped around and this is the perfect rack.
