Smartest Coat Rack Ever!
Catherine from FL – Verified Buyer
I chose the beautiful light brown wood color. I am using this rack in a guest room where there is only a narrow passage way. I needed to find something close to the wall that would provide storage for my guests but wouldn't hurt anyone if the rack was empty. This rack is super sleek, very strong (made of one piece lumber) and has 8 hooks which fold up and into the wood when not in use. The hooks become part of the design, as you can see by the picture. The hooks peel downward with the touch of a finger. My guests love this extra storage for their belongings and I love that it provides storage without taking up any space in the room. It has 3 keyhole notches for strength in hanging, and the best part is.... it comes with a template. Simply hang up the paper template and affix your screws where the bullseye(s) are drawn. Remove the paper and hang up the rack. No guessing, no mistakes. Five stars for sure. I definitely recommend!

I love the flip coat hook. It is potentially perfect but there are two areas that the wood is damaged beside the hooks and obviously filled in with wood glue (that is a bit lighter than the actual wood). If you stand back from it, you don't see it much but up close, it is very noticeable. I decided to keep it because it wasn't worth the effort of returning it. I would have preferred better quality control here though. It seems to be very sturdy and well built otherwise.
Classy Solution to a Small Closet.
Gwenn from Jackson, WY – Verified Buyer
I love the look of this coat hook assembly. And it performs beautifully..strong and smooth. It is perfect in my foyer where closet space is at a premium so it's great for guests here in our active ski resort area. When not in use, It looks more like a sculpture than a functional coat hook. Love it!! Pros: Packaged well; with included template, it took just minutes to mount on the wall. Its nice finish gives it a slick look. Cons: NONE!
Smart design and very sturdy!
Stacey from Novi, MI – Verified Buyer
I was attracted to the design of this but was concerned that it might not hold coats. I bought 2 and hung them in my entryway on December 23rd. On Christmas we had 15 people in the house and they held all the heavy winter coats with no problems! Very pleased! So pleased that I ordered 2 more for my mother's house!
Sturdy and Good Quality
Hillary from Blacksburg, VA – Verified Buyer
Although it looks really simple, this coat hook is really great quality and definitely can hold multiple heavy coats. If I were to order again, I would get the natural finish as the white finish that I ordered is really shiny and doesn't look as rich.
Bang for your buck
Shaun from San Diego, CA – Verified Buyer
looks good and does the job. Pros: easy to mount Cons: hooks are a little loose causing them to open up if jarred. those are the ones I use to hang stuff up.
Breakroom Coat Rack behind the door
Cala from Fresno, CA – Verified Buyer
Everyone loves this light colored wood & brushed silver metal coat rack. We installed it on the wall behind our breakroom door. Looks modern & European. The hooks pull down when you want to hang something & it works well - good quality.
modern and functional
Julie from MA – Verified Buyer
slim and visually pleasing. Easy to put up and looks nice with and without coats. Perfect for wall in mudroom or near the entrance of home. My kids now hang up there coats and backpacks. What's better than that.
Very sturdy for coats -- don't use the template
HENNY from Jackson Heights, NY – Verified Buyer
I love it -- got the longest size, which is perfect for our entryway. It is SOLID on the wall, hooks are sturdy and can handle a wet winter coat. They may lose their ability to stay up over time -- don't know yet -- but I use it enough that I don't care. Its flat profile against the wall and it's sleek look are exactly what I wanted.
Melinda from Monona, WI – Verified Buyer
Mounted low on the wall, the grandkids love using these hooks for jackets and snowpants. When not in use the hooks are folded up and out of the way, and with a picture hanging above it looks like a piece of art itself. My only hesitation is that I'm not sure how sturdy it will be over the long haul ... But only time will tell!
