Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase I needed a rod for hanging clothes in the laundry room. This was perfect. It was easy to assemble, just the right size and sturdy enough to hold the hanging clothes from the dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to my laundry room I have a small laundry room - just wide enough for a washer, dryer, and utility sink. There are cabinets above all three so there is lots of storage, but I didn't have a place to hang clothes to dry. I was looking for a bar I could hang on the wall but instead found this - and it is perfect! It hangs on the door, out of the way, and gives me the perfect place to hang shirts and store hangers. I'm going to get another one for our guest room

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for hanging laundry in a utility room! I use this valet rod to hang my close as they come out of the dryer in my utility room, or to hang dry more delicate items. It is the perfect half way point between the wash and the closet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed This product will come in very handy when friends and family come over for Thanksgiving and Christmas and I need a place to hang their coats, as I'm short on closet space. It's also helpful in my laundry room for hanging my husband's shirts on straight out of the dryer before putting them away.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as practical as I thought Although good in theory, this over door valet is poor in design. I tried it on every door in my house. The doors wouldn't close completely and it marked the doors and frames.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Energy Saver This product is not only sturdy and holds at least six items, it saves energy by allowing clothes to air dry rather than drying in the dryer. Clothes last longer when air dried, too! This is a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid & Fits Well This rack is made from strong materials, not flimsy at all. The part that goes over the door is very thin, so the door can actually close and open without much friction. It fits right against the door, so it doesn't slide around. It comes with rubber stoppers that you have to put in when you assemble it. Maybe I didn't get mine in right because they keep coming off. However in spite of that, the rack holds well together and doesn't come apart. The length is great for smaller closet doors. Over a regular sized door, it seems a bit narrow, but still works. Great buy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good idea, but not great I bought this valet rod about 4 months ago and disappointed with it overall.......the end caps were not snug enough that I placed painter's tape under them to "tighten" their grip; the overdoor hooks will not allow the door to close; the protective padding under the overdoor hooks have come off......the metal material is strong, however, giving this a "sturdy" description and I do like the concept of being able to use it as extra storage......too bad it isn't a great product today....

Rated 2 out of 5 by from weak design I really liked the idea of this in my small closet to hang my work clothes on. The rod is very solid I just think they need to do a better job of designing the mounting. It is made to just lip over the top of the door which creates problems with closing the door. The part that goes over the top will most likely be too thick to allow the door to close. Had it been made with only one layer of metal instead of two then it might have worked. I was really hoping for some type of mounting hardware but there is none. It is only meant to slip over the door. Which I guess is fine so you are not making holes in the door. But I would like a little more stability. I am going to modify mine. I will drill a hole in the portion that goes over the top of the door so the screw will not be seen. I will also have to notch out the top of the door where the brackets will be so there will be enough clearance to close the door. I will also have to modify my door stop on the top to allow clearance again so the door will close. I think that if you are not handy and cannot make these modifications you should avoid this product. Once I complete my modifications I will load in some photos of my changes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as expected It took 3 tries before I actually kept this. I purchased it for our guest room and thought it would be great. However, the product doesn't match the picture on the box - the two end pieces are a tan colored plastic instead of steel like the bar. I returned it to the store thinking that was a fluke, but we went through all the stock and they were all like that. One of the ends was a little loose on the first one too, so even though I was disappointed with the appearance of the end pieces I decided to keep it, but took home a different one due to the end piece being loose. I hadn't noticed that the replacement had a bent piece, so I had to go back to the store again for another exchange. That time I had a sales person help me put it together in the store so I could be sure it would work. It's working out fine, but it was a pain and the end pieces do look pretty cheap!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What I was looking for. This item was purchased to replace an old that was plastic and had for years. When the rod had broken I had replaced it with a piece of schedule 40 PVC pipe and cotter pins. I had made it a little longer to accommodate a few more items. The new one is shorter and I hope the rod holds up. I wish it was slightly heavier and longer. It could hang a little further from the door. I have a few hangers that are wider and they don't hang straight. They are at an angle. This was not my first choice. The other one was the same price, but was discontinued after I ordered it. It was also metal. This one is doing what I need it for. I'm making sure that I don't hang too many things on it. Just making a few more trips up the stairs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good I just put this up, so I can't comment on durability, but it's definitely perfect for my needs. I needed extra space to hang coats and scarves that I wear frequently, and this fits the bill perfectly. There are no tools required to assemble, and is very easy to put together and hang. There are protectors on the door hanger so the doors won't get damaged or scraped. It seems to be fairly sturdy, so if it holds up through the season, I'll be thrilled.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well for about 1 year We have 2 of these in our apartment. They were great for about 1 year. After that each one twisted and broke - maybe we had too many clothes hanging on them. Even though they broke I would still buy again - it's worth the extra hanging space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product! Got this for my daughter's dorm room because after hanging three shirts, her closet was filled! Perfect for the dorm because it hangs from the door and doesn't take up floor space and it is very sturdy. Only improvement would be to have it expand to different lengths (could use 4 more inches).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great purchase very attractive over the door clothing rack. Have purchased many different styles b ut this one is the most convenient and holds a lot of clothing. If you have a small closet, this is your answer. My only complain, and why I only gave 4 stars is I cannot completely close my door with this rack......use one on my bedroom door and one on the walkin closet door....was planning on using one on the bathroom door but would not be able to completely close door. Not a huge deal for me, but may be for others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT ITEM These are great. I put them on my laundry room door for hanging clothes when they come out of the dryer. I also put them on the outside of the closets in my two guest rooms so the guests don't have to go in my closets to hang their clothes -- they're already full. ;-) They are very easy to put together and leave plenty of room for clothes. They are really great.

How far out does it protrude?

It appears quite deep, but I don't see dimensions. How far from the door does it extend? Does it need assembly?

How much weight will this support?

Asked by: chrisbro
The Hangover Overdoor Valet Rod should hold around 5-10 pounds, we recommend evenly distributing the weight of the hanging items.
