HangerJack, Extra Space when you Need It!

Organizing with the HangerJack - Ask Anna

My husband is an avid runner, and fortunately his best friend is a gear review blogger. This is great for my husband but frustrating for me because we have so many backpacks, water pack, running shoes, etc. Because his running stuff always smells so bad after a run, he has taken over the back door landing as being his “drop” station.

I’m lucky if I can get out the door without tripping over a pack, shoes, his smelly clothes, or whatever else he dropped there after his last run.

It has been my mission for months to try and organize/solve this mess so when HangerJack sent me the 24″ HangerJack, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it!

I had my husband install the HangerJack right outside our back door so instead of dropping everything on the ground, right outside the door, he could hang it on the HangerJack.

This was such an easy solution to the huge mess that had been haunting me! And the best part about the HangerJack, is that when all Matt’s stuff is clean, and can be stored in he house, we can fold it down so it’s out of they way.

Of course after we installed it my husband friend saw it and said, “I need some of those!”.

I love that it was easy to install, the storage it provides and that it has organized our back patio.

  1. Vicki I. says:

    The possibilities are endless for the hanger jack, but I think I would use it in my oldest son’s room which doubles as our guest room. He’s a total clothes hound and his closet is bursting! Guests could use this when they visit to hang up their clothes.

  2. My 2 teen daughters’ special wash clothes that have to be hung to dry. I have them hung all over the place on door jambs.

  3. Shawn B! says:

    Sawhorses! Great idea!

  4. I would use the hanger jack in my laundry room to hang wet things on before they go into the laundry bins. I especially like that it can fold out of the way when not in use!

  5. MichelleO says:

    I need this in my laundry room to hang clothes to dry!

  6. Rachel LaManna says:

    This sounds like a great product — let’s see, I could use this in multiple paces around the house; but definitely in the garage for my hubby’s stinky hockey gear/clothes!

  7. chastity says:

    This would be great in our ourdoor kitchen for hanging a hand towel, or other items.

  8. Cynthia T. says:

    Great tool! I can see using the hanger jack in the garage but I really could use it in my husbands closet…maybe the dropped almost clean clothes would have a home.

  9. Veronica A. says:

    I’d use it near the garage entry door to our kitchen for empty reusable shopping bags (going into the car for the next trip) and stuff on it’s way to be put away in the shop!

  10. I would most likely use it in my laundry room- but really, I could think of several other places I could use it also! Thank you:)

  11. Shirley says:

    I would put it in the laundry room to hang shirts, etc. after wash and dry. As I unload the drier hang them on it and than take them to the proper closet. This would be a winner.

  12. Dawn Krueger says:

    I really need this in my utility room. I could use it for clothes or even gardening things. Hope I win it!

  13. Lori Saros says:

    this would be great for my laundry room!!

  14. s wilson says:

    Remodeling my laundry room and have been looking for something just like this! Perfect for hanging wet clothes to dry..

  15. Nancy C says:

    I will be using it to hang shirts on as they are removed from the dryer

  16. Suzanne Bowie says:

    Ii would use two to hang my bicycle

  17. Cindy Bechinski says:

    I would love a couple of these. So many ideas on how to use them around my house.

  18. What a great device! I am already picturing it on the deck railing for pool towels, the laundry room next to the dryer for hanging clothes, near the mud room entry for muddy or wet jackets, etc.

  19. Jennifer K. says:

    I love the idea of this. What couldn’t you hang on it?! The first thing that comes to mind for me is all of my daughter’s sports/dance stuff. It would help us to keep it all together, and most importantly, off the floor!

  20. My husband is in the military so gear has taken over our garage. I would use this to hang it up and get my garage back!

  21. Anna Popescu says:

    I have a narrow laundry room and have been needing more “hang-up” hardware because I hang and air dry our clothes. This would be the perfect solution! Thanks for the opp to win it!

    ~Another Anna~

  22. Debbie Bedford says:

    I would use it in my laundry room.

  23. This would be great in our garage for all of our hockey gear! We would need to get a few of these though.

  24. This Hanger Jack would be such a huge help in my laundry room! I like to hang clothes directly out of the dryer for less ironing, and this looks like it would hold a lot!

  25. TwoDiffSocks says:

    Hi YA’ll,

    The possibilities are endless in my house: near the front door, in the guest room, every bedroom and closet, THE PANTRY and kitchen, maybe even the bathroom aka the laundry drying room! tee-hee 😉

  26. Wow, what a great idea. It’s a shame the product isn’t available in the UK. My other half could really do with one to hang his stuff!


  27. I would use it to hang clothes on when drying. Right now I end up with hangers of clothes all over our laundry/mudroom.

  28. laundry room for sure – I NEED this

  29. Alison C says:

    Where to pick for one Hanger Jack when every room in the house could use one? I think I would have to put it in the girls room. Maybe then I would see the bedroom floor!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  30. Cindy S says:

    I have been seeing HangerJacks popping up all over lately on different blogs. I am in desperate need of one of these for my laundry room. What a great invention :)!

  31. Jillian Mitchell says:

    I need this for purses and backpacks!!

  32. This would be awesome in my tight laundry room for hanging clothes.

  33. Kathie G says:

    We are sharing our home with our daughter and her husband and a teenager and a new baby is expected in 5 weeks. We are bursting at the seams but filled with love. I need a hangar jack in every room plus the garage. Laundry room for clothes that must be line-dried, bedrooms, kitchen for incoming stuff to be sorted, garage for ladders and bicycles galore! I love the idea of them folding when not in use.

  34. Where wouldn’t I use one??

  35. Christy S. Lube says:

    Gosh, I can think of so MANY things… kids backpacks, husband’s cycling gear, the dog’s leashes and coats… goodness!

  36. Kathaleen says:

    This is very cool, I think I would need a few!

  37. Stephanie Ann says:

    I would hang my favorite jeans

  38. charron says:

    Love this idea! Thanks!

  39. Cindy K says:

    I also have 2 runners in my house and bags and running shoes get placed everywhere! I would use this to organize the mess!

  40. Hangar Jack would get my drip-dry only clothes.

  41. Anne Marie says:

    I would love this in my laundry room to hang clothes that I do not want to put in the dryer – sounds like a great product!

  42. Kelly c says:

    Baby clothes in the living room so I don’t have to go upstairs.

  43. Susan718 says:

    I would put it in my bathroom, since that that is the place I hang up wet clothes that can’t go in the dryer (I live in an apartment and can’t hang things up in the laundry room, and wouldn’t want to if I could). I love that it folds down so compactly. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  44. BACKPACKS!!! Kids backpacks are always on the floor. These would be sturdy enough to hold them!!!

    • Definitely the kids backpacks! But I’m curious…how much weight do they support? I couldn’t find that information on the website. Because let me tell you- those kids backpacks are HEAVY!

      • I emailed them to ask and here is there response: “If installed properly, HangerJack will hold up to 60 lbs.”

  45. this would be great for the kids to hang their wet bathing suits.

  46. Oh, this is awesome! My husband is an avid hiker, and we’ve recently acquired Camelbaks for all the kids. I was looking for a way to store them when not in use, and this is perfect!

  47. Sharyn Friedman says:

    I would use this in the laundry room. I would hang up all my husband’s shirts after they are washed. I love this! I think it’s great.

  48. Debbie Fortenberrry says:

    I could sure pick up the laundry room with this!

  49. What a fabulous idea! Totally need one of those!

  50. I need this item EVERYWHERE! Would love to give it a try! Thanks!

  51. I can think of a million uses for the Hanger Jack, but I think I would start by organizing my son’s extensive baseball cap collection. I would just slide each one on, and they’d be out of the way, but easy to access. Great product!

  52. Jennifer Lehman says:

    I would like to have one of these in the laundry room for hanging up clothes fresh from the dryer so I won’t have to iron as much; then there’s the 11-year old’s room…too many options there (football gear, judo gear, backpack) how many can you hang on one wall without the wall falling in? ha ha ha Then I’d put one in our bedroom for my husband to hang his work uniforms on…they usually end up thrown over a piece of furniture in the bedroom…oh the possibilities!

  53. I’d totally use this in the garage for extra bags!

  54. NStarnes says:

    My honey has a “clirty” pile of clothes, this would help so much.

  55. My laundry room is tiny. So I would love to have this to hang clothes to dry and then snap it back up when I don’t need it. Awesome idea.

  56. I’d love this and would use it in my laundry room for hanging items to dry and for hanging delicates right out of the dryer! I could also use one o. The patio for wet swim clothes in the summer and rain gear I the winter!

  57. I need about 15 of these!!

  58. Benita Collins says:

    Looks like something I could definitely use in my laundry room!! Right now I have to put my clothes on hangers out of the dryer and take them to the bathroom and hang on shower curtain rod. Then clothes are put away from there :(

  59. Barbara says:

    I want this so bad!

  60. Wow that’s a real savior an it’s only 30 $. Do you think it’s possible to get it online, like eBay for instance :)

  61. Oh my goodness in the laundry room! I’d love to be able to hang my husband’s dress shirts as I’m folding laundry. I do that and currently hang them on the doorknob. This would be perfect and unobtrusive for our small laundry room. Eeeek!

  62. This is by far the COOLEST invention I’ve seen in a long time!!! I would put backpacks, purses, and duffle bags on the Hanger Jack. Then we could see our dogs! LOL. All our stuff is thrown on top of the dog crates in our front room.

    • I’m thinking I need about half a dozen of these! In my sewing room, in my garage, in my guest room, in my travel trailer, under the patio for rain gear, on the side of our garden shed…the possibilities are endless! Thanks for letting me know about this!

  63. Pat Soule says:

    I’ve never seen one of these before, but now I know I NEED one. Maybe even a couple! Great idea.

  64. This would be great in the garage for all of my boyfriends work stuff that he normally drops on the ground before he comes in!

  65. This is such a great invention – we ALL need one of these. Thanks so much for the chance to win one. BTW – I LOVE the “mud” decal on your door!! fabulous :-)

  66. I’d use it in my laundry room to hang things to dry. And I’d want one by the garage door for hanging we clothes. And maybe one in the closet for hanging up those odds and ends that seem to fall on the floor. Clearly I need several. 😉

  67. Jennifer says:

    I would definitely use it for my kid’s clutter, backpacks and jackets.

  68. Hi Anna,
    Boy would this be handy! I could really use this to help me organize both my shed and garage, but it would also be great in my laundry room to sort and hang dry clothes.

  69. This seems so useful. We could use at least one at our house.

  70. Barbara says:

    I’d live to have one in my laundry area for hanging clothes right out if the dryer and another one over the tub for hanging clothes to dry. I could also use one in my sewing area to hang current projects until they are finished.

  71. I think I would hang ours near our laundry room/garage hall. Or maybe in the garage. Or maybe upstairs for the kids. So many options!

  72. I would use it for backpacks! :)

  73. So many ideas of what to do with a hanger jack!

  74. Oooh! I could totally use one of these…like in every room in my house 😉

  75. I would definitely use the Hammer Jack to hang laundry in the laundry room — my home’s laundry room is tiny!

  76. Connie W says:

    I could use more than one of these in my house–definitely in the laundry room and garage. However, the first thing I would do is put one on a side wall in my coat closet and hang the purses that are currently taking up too much space on the hanging bar and weighing down/deforming my coat hangers.

  77. Samantha says:

    I could use the Hanger Jack to hang the numerous purses that I have instead of leaving them in a box somewhere I can hang them all up and out of the way. They would be all on hand for when I want to switch out purses.

  78. I need this in my laundry room! I need a place to hang work clothes when they come out of the dryer. Perfect product!

  79. I would use the hanger jack to hang all my bags!!

  80. Sara Garcia says:

    We need a few of these for the garage! I like the idea on the site for using 2 to hold a ladder.

  81. Laurie Williams says:

    I could use about 10 of these!! I have 3 teenagers in my house & just like your husband they have smelly sports gear. My laundry room could use a couple of these to save space when hanging clean clothes.

  82. Love it!

  83. I would plan my weekly outfits with it :)

  84. Tamkeen Pirzada says:
