2.) How do Higher Hangers work?

Traditionally, closets have been designed around the dimensions of hangers & garments. Higher Hangers are the first hangers ever to be designed around optimally efficient closet geometry. Higher Hangers have a short neck design that raises clothes up higher, reducing clutter & wrinkles & increases availabe storage space.

3.) What are they made of?

Higher Hangers are available in 3 premium styles with a 4th on the way. Slimline black velvet coated (non-slip), Slippery Black Plastic Slimline with no velvet flocking, and clean, luxurious white HDF wood, all with chrome metal hooks.

4.) Do collared shirts work on Higher Hangers?

Absolutely. The design was maximized to save space but allow just enough room for shirt collars so Higher Hangers could be used for every type of clothing. Here’s an in-depth explanation.

5.) Will the velvet material get on my clothes?

No way. Several manufacturers were tested to ensure quality so the velvet coating always stays on the hangers.

6.) What is HDF material?

“Solid wood” hangers are actually 2-3 pieces of solid wood glued together near the hook which creates a weak point. HDF hangers are one solid piece (plus the hook). High-density fiberboard (HDF), is an engineered composite wood product that’s been used in wood flooring for years but just now being used to make hangers. HDF allows for all the qualities of solid-wood hangers (thick, durable, gorgeous), for a fraction of the price. I wouldn’t try to snap one over my leg like a baseball bat. They’re stout. Unlike particle board, HDF will not split or crack. HDF is way stronger, denser, and harder than particle board or MDF (medium-density fiberboard) because it is made out of exploded wood fibers that have been highly compressed.

Space-Savings Calculator

How many feet of clothes rods are in your closet? Don't forget to multiply by two if you have two rows. (The average two-person closet has 16 feet of hanging space)

7.) 48 shoeboxes of new space? How do you calculate that?

It’s very simple math. Here’s how…

1) One of the most popular shoe storage boxes on has dimensions of 11.8” (deep) x 7.4” (wide) x 3.8” (tall).

2) To make the math realistic, I round everything up to 12 x 8 x 4 inches. We know in reality there will be some space between each box, so I’m hurting my own statistics with honesty.

3) Higher Hangers raise your clothes 4 inches compared to traditional hangers, creating enough new space to slide a 4 inch tall shoebox underneath.

4) The average closet is at least 24 inches deep, which means you can now fit two 12 inch long shoeboxes front to back for every 8 inches wide of hanging space (since boxes are 8 inches wide). That comes out to six shoeboxes every 2 feet (24 inches).

5) The average closet size for a two person closet, like in your master bedroom, is 8 feet wide. Most people have both and an upper and lower row of clothes, so that equals 16 feet of total hanging space.

6) Multiply everything out and with 16 feet of hanging space Higher Hangers create over 10 cubic feet of new space in an average closet. That’s enough for 48 shoeboxes, or about 7 carry-on pieces of luggage. It’s also the size of a European-style refrigerator (5ft tall x 2ft wide).

Many walk-in closets have more than 16 feet of hanging space. Grab a tape measure, add up your closet rod lengths, then use the space-savings calculator below to see how much new space Higher Hangers can create in your closet.
