GRUNDTAL Coathanger

Materials: GRUNDTAL

Description: GRUNDTAL Coat hanger

The Grundtal is originally made as a kitchen shelf.

By adding a two-bar hanger upside down it makes a nice coat hanger.

This one is the 120cm long one but it tends to bend a bit when you hang a lot of heavy winter coats on them. Better is to use the 80cm in that case but i needed the space on the top part.

    What kind of hooks are those?

  2. Norman Paterson says:

    Are these Grundtal S-hooks? I could bend S-hooks so they are captive on the bar, but are you using something else?

  3. I did this in my condo also- minus the shelf above as I mounted mine behind a door. I only used a single bar rather than the double– didn’t even think about the double. Maybe I should have done a double instead. I love mine– the best is that you can move the hooks around. Most cook hooks don’t have mobile hooks.
