Maybe there’s an obvious downside to this idea that I’m just not seeing, but I kind of like the look and functionality of these hookless hangers. The not so secret trick behind the hangers is that the traditional hook has been replaced with a neodymium magnet, which also requires you to replace the rod in your closet with a metal strip mounted below a shelf or something. Now your first thought is probably that magnets would be no where near strong enough, but these can support up to 5lbs of clothing, and there’s a deluxe version designed for coats that supports up to 7.5lbs.

On one hand they end up saving a lot of vertical space in a closet allowing you to stack two rows of clothing in some cases, but on the other a 5-pack of basic wooden hangers is around $20. Now I hate to discourage people from buying this company’s product, but this seems like another DIY project that could accomplish the same thing for a lot cheaper.
