But my trench coat has a problem: where do you hang it when you arrive to office and you take it out? Trench coats are so big and so long. And it gets worse in a rainy weather. Your trench coat gets wet and you can't put it in a chair, without wetting the chair or dragging your coat on the floor.
So, there I was, arriving at the office in a rainy morning, with my wet trench coat, thinking about the beautiful and cheap umbrellas I saw in Chinatown (but NAAAH! My miserliness didn't let me to buy one!), when I realize that there is no place on Instructables lab where you can hang your trench coat. Or your rain coat. And I can't open a hole on the wall just for putting a nail for my coat. So, what would MacGyver do?
Then I remembered something: magnets. Computer hard drives have powerful magnets. Very powerful. I could make a magnetic coat hanger and placed it in the metallic cabinet near the restrooms.
It took me only 3 minutes to dismantle one of my dead hard drives and 2 minutes to build the coat hanger. And it works very well.
Step 1: Warning, materials and tools
- 1 Dead Hard Drive (you will need only the magnet)
- 1 bolt
- 2 nuts
- Isulating tape
- A metallic cabinet (or another big metallic surface where you can put your trench coat)
