Introduction: Fiberglass Coat Hangers

Picture of Fiberglass Coat Hangers

I never seem to have enough hangers and the cardboard tube that some are made with won't hold up to some of my heavy coats. I didn't have any money for stronger hangers, but what I have plenty of is fiberglass tent pole that I found in a dumpster.

Step 1: Gather Materials

All that is needed is a hanger of the card board tube variety, a fiber glass pole, a hack saw, pliers, and sandpaper.

Step 2: Tearing

Pull the card board off the hanger. This shouldn't be too hard.

Step 3: Cutting

Compare the pole to the hanger frame to see where to cut it. This pole has a bungee cord in it that I wanted to save so I use my hacksaw to cut around it. After the pole is cut it"s ends should be sanded to prevent splinters.

Step 4: Assembling

Straighten out the exposed wire ends of the hanger and insert them into either side of the pole.

This is a great idea and thank you for sharing but the blurry photos just make it too hard to look at.

I know. It's my cell phone I'll be getting a real camera soon.

To be honest though, I didn't hold out for a camera to upload this project because I thought it seemed straightforward enough.

I got a camera. I might update the pictures soon.
