Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I had purchased earlier This drying rack makes my life easier. I hang my swimsuit on it after I wash it. Drips in the laundry sink , I use to hang it on the faucet. This is so much better. Doesn't take up much space. Don't hesitate like I did, buy it, it will make your life easier!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for small spaces This is a great product - it keeps a big freestanding drying rack out of our living space. However, I wish it were a little wider and stretched out even a little more - I don't dry a lot of my clothes and I wish there were more room on this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I didn't think it would be sturdy enough-but it wa When my dryer broke down I bought a temporary drying rack. Dryers still kaput, and I use the rack all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a simple and practical gadget ! I have a small laundry room and needed a compact drying rack that mounts on a wall. I chose this one for its fold-away design and its sleek look. I use it for air drying lots of delicate garments. Once the clothes are dry, I fold back the rack into the wall. Thank you Container Store for another ingenious product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic space saver and does the job I was looking for a way to eliminate that huge bulky drying rack that seems to be everywhere at once on laundry day. This rack is terrific. It easily mounted to the inside of a closet. It pulls out readily and doesn't sag. I can also lay items on top of the rack even with the rest of the laundry laced between the rungs. I'm going to get a second one for inside the hall closet to hang wet coats etc. Now less clutter in the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another excellent purchase I use it in my walk-in closet to hang scarves. I can pull it out to select what I want to wear, etc. then close it up for almost space free storage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for scarfs! Bought for my store to use as a display. Have had a lot of customers wanting to purchase this to use in their home. Told them to get it at the container store!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for small laundrey rooms! I just remodeled my laundry/mud room - this little hanger means I can still have clothes drying but not have a bulky stand-alone in the small laundry room space. It is very hardy and folds away neatly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Compact Drying Rack Ever! I am so glad to have this little drying rack. It holds towels perfectly, and I trend to hang undergarments from the sides. I installed it on a little wall section right over a heat vent, and it's great! It came with the anchors for drywall, and with wood screws, very sturdy. Folds nearly flat super easily! Everyone needs one! Or two.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Accordion Drying Rack LOVE THIS ITEM!!! I hang my delicates to dry. I didn't even know this item came with 2 sets of brackets until we installed it. Am DEFINITELY purchasing another one! I use it constantly! LOVE that it can be pushed to the wall...mostly out of the way when not being used, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great purchase I had seen a much more expensive laundry rack from a competitor and thought that was what I wanted. However, I had trouble with the price and began to look for something more in line with our budget. I found this one at the Container Store and ordered it, thinking I could return it if I did not like. Result: It works beautifully; looks nice; and fulfills my purpose in buying. A friend saw it and decided that was exactly what she wanted too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great with one caveat This is a great drying rack. It easily holds about 15 washcloths or a couple of towels. It works as described. It fits easily in most places. The only caveat is that you cannot drape wet items near the metal buttons that sit on the ends of the poles (see metal buttons/discs in picture on each side of the rack. These will rust immediately if they get even a little wet. Also, you cannot put this in a bathroom for same reason. Heavy rust forms on these buttons. We love the racks, but plan to replace the original ones we bought with new ones as our originals rusted. This time we will paint the metal buttons with clear lacquer or nail polish to protect them. It's a great product with this one flaw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small Space Solution I have a cramped bit of space above the laundry sink where I installed this rack a bit high and sideways, so I use plastic hangers on this for all of my wet items. It has worked wonderfully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hang up Delicates I have this above my dryer, it is perfect for hanging delicates. It is easy to put up, very compact. Mine is now 6 years old, and I have never had a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for small spaces! I needed something that was wall mounted as I used to have an unsightly drying rack sitting in our family room. This rack is awesome for small spaces! I have two of them in my laundry room and love them. You can pull them out when you need them and push them back in when you don't to free up the space. The rack holds a lot of clothes of all different weights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I was looking for a collapsable drying rack to go on a door in my laundry room. This is perfect. It fits nicely on the door (I bought nuts and bolts to attach as I thought the mollys it comes with would not hold it) and in the overall space. It allows me to push the rack closed even if it is filled to open the other door in the room. This was a huge problem with the previous rack I was using. It is even removable from the brackets if you don't want to look at it.

Could I potentially hang some jeans on this?

If I hung the jeans over more than one rod, so to speak?

This drying rack will hold up to 22lbs so is depending on how many pairs of jeans and how much they each weigh.

Can this rack fit in a 24'' cabinet? If not, can you suggest one that could fit?

Asked by: Julieaa
This product is exactly 24'' wide, so it will not fit within your space. We do not have a similar product that will accommodate your needs, however, we have made a Product Recommendation that may work with your needs.

How do you attach this rack so it is strong? What hardware?

It isn't the right size to be attached to the studs, so what is used instead?
