Rated 5 out of 5 by from So helpful I love these hooks and have one for almost every door. I live in a small apartment and like that I can use the backs of doors or inside a closet for extra hanging storage. The price isn't too bad either.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It fits! I was thrilled to finally find an over-door hook that fit my bedroom door, which is apparently a bit thicker than standard. My only negative about the hooks is that they're hard-edged so I'm not comfortable hanging knits on them... if I hang a thin t-shirt or a running top on a hook, it leaves a dent in the fabric and the item gets misshapen. I wish these had a rounder hook, or a ball at the end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits thicker doors I have purchased several over the door hooks and this one is particularly nice as it fits over fire rated doors too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have one on almost every door This hook works great and blends in with white doors. However, the hook tip has sharp edges, so I wouldn't hang more delicate items directly on the hook.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy hook This simple hook comes in handy. It fits over most doors and is very durable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for use on thick doors! I usually have trouble finding hooks and accessories for my thick doors. The 'commercial' end of this hook fits perfectly. The downside is that the metal used is a bit bulky and I have to close the door slowly to avoid scraping the frame. But given how difficult it is to find anything that fits my doors, it still gets a 4-star rating!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i use this in my kitchen to hang the dish towels on for people to dry their hands, so they don't use all the paper towels!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy, Nothing to Install It's white so it blends into the door. Slips right over the top of the door and nothing needs to be installed. Great for what I wanted it for!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy for packing Perfect helper when packing hanging garments: compact, single purpose and inexpensive. We had one but it was lost in a recent household move. We bought two - one for us and one for our guest room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for thicker doors My apartment has thicker doors and I had a difficult time finding a hook that would fit over the door. This hook fits and my door can still close normally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for travel I travel with my husband and keep one of these in my bag so I have an extra hook to hang on the door for my toiletries. Because the hook will hang on two different door sizes, finding a door to fit has never been a problem. There have been countless times I've used/needed an extra hook. It's a good idea...

Community Q&A

Would this hook hold a crutch?

How long is just the part used for hanging, would it hold a crutch 1 1/4 inch wide?
Asked by: 101ironbucket
Yes, this would work to hold a 1-1/4 inch crutch.

How wide is the vertical flat metal & the hooks themselves? (Not the widths of the door(s) it fits.)

I need to know how wide is the flat metal itself, especially the "hook" part itself. I understand it will fit both residential & commercial thickness of doors (which I need), BUT I also need to know if the "hook"(s) ends themselves will fit through the grommets of the item I need to hang on the hooks, which is reisenthel® Fabric Magazine Organizer Kiwi/Khaki, your Item No. 10040637. The open holes at top of the magazine holder, which are grommetted in, is approx. 3/4" width each, so the metal hooks I need should NOT be wider than that where I need to slip the open grommetts over the hooks. (I thought the hooks would come with the mag holder, but they did NOT--they SHOULD have been included.)
