Innovative Idea : Magnetic Clothes Hangers

Innovative Idea : Magnetic Clothes Hangers

Clothes hangers and clothing spaces have largely remained in the same format over the years.So designer Daniel decided to change the old hangers, and came with new and innovative idea.Now you don’t need to organize your clothes on the metallic bars that occupy space in closet, because you can use magnets.These hangers replace the hook with a magnet, accompanied by a suspended piece of metal to allow full freedom of arrangement and display.See how is done in this video.

I you want to see other projects by Daniel you can check his website.

    great, but only for lite weight clothes. imagine how to use this hangers with a large and heavy coat :)

    I know what you say IonutzB, but I think that these are ideal for t-shirts for example.

    um… they do make magnets pretty damn strong. so… you’re wrong. they will work with any clothing. great idea!

    If you use powerful magnets such as these:

    You wouldn’t need to limit it to simply tshirts. Combine that with a small electromagnetically charged ‘ceiling’ for your closet/wardrobe, and you could hang the heaviest of coats.

    Rare-earth magnets can hold a tremendous load with just a tiny bit of magnet.

    Check these out:
    http://www.rare-earth-magnets.com/SearchResult.aspx?CategoryID=21&KeyWords=Cube&All=True

    Block Magnet Size – 0.250″ (6.35mm) x 0.250″ (6.35mm) x 0.100″ (2.54mm); Pull Force – 2.41lb/1093g; Grade N40

    or these:

    I’ve even seen magnets of 10x10x10cm which can hold up about 500kg’s

    What if you want to slide the clothes like you would on a bar? Its an interesting idea, but i dont see it as an improvement on using a pole.

  • hugo April 13, 2007 at 19:42 PMLogin to Reply →

    If the magnets are that strong wont it be hard to pull them off ??

    And if too weak wont be able to hang heavy items as said above….

    I agree it would be hard to slide them too…

    What about close from the cleaners you hang up in your car on the hooks made for hangers? need a magnet in the car now too?

    I ussually hang shirt over doors too before i wear when im getting ready….

    Sorry to bash it cause i love new ideas, but id rather sitck with my hangers…

    Also i use wire hangers to clean my bong, id die with out them

  • Roy Gerbil April 13, 2007 at 20:00 PMLogin to Reply →

    Seems like a really neat idea. But wouldn’t you have a problem with the magnets getting too close and sticking to each other? Maybe a ring of plastic around the edge of the magnet would prevent that.

    Nice. I’m so gonna order some.

    Sliding is not an issue you could attach the metal on a slider then attach the hanger/magnet.

    Yes if you use an overly strong magnet. However, if a person did enough testing they could probably find the right strength magnet. Remember mass and weight can help. Generally, a heavy coats weight should help overcome the magnet’s strength.

    Magnetic fields strong enough to hold suits could be a significant health risk to those with pacemakers. My dad was interested in getting one of those rare earth magnets until his doctor unequivocally told no.

    Hugo I disagree with a simple bend of the wrist the hanger can come off easily no matter how strong………….but good point about the bong “wire hangers 4 life”

    If you had a neighbor upstairs you could frequently erase his/her harddrive while neatly hanging your dress slacks.

    LOL @ smuikas: an electromagnetically charged ceiling would be a bit overkill, don’t you think? Magnets work just fine sticking to plain ol’ metal..

  • JKFan April 13, 2007 at 20:43 PMLogin to Reply →

    I just have one question? Why? Are hangers so bad? No they aren’t. So why bother with having an eloctromagnet in the ceiling of your closet. (Seriously…an electricity bill to hang your clothes?)

    This is different for the sake of being differnet. If anything, it is a regression, not an imporvement.

  • Oscar April 13, 2007 at 20:59 PMLogin to Reply →

    I can already see it… after all the discussion of rare earth magnets and other super strong magnets.

    Target – 4 pack of magnohangers $22.95
    Target – 25 pack of regular time-proven hangers $2.95.

    hmm…. thats a simple choice for me.
    This is one of those “Hey, thats really neat…” but then you wonder “…why?”

    I think this is a cool art project, but horrible usability. I think the fact that the clothes can be anywhere is a downside. Picture normal closet, full of clothes hung on these. As you are trying to search for something to wear, you would ultimately end up pushing clothes towards the back of the closet. Then they would be out of sight, or of mind, and they would probably just stay back there never to be worn again.

    This is the same reason on my windows desktop I have “align to grid” checked. Rather then being able to put my icons anywhere, i like that it forces them into easy to find rows and columns.

    I really don’t see a single advantage. One could take the milk out of the carton, so that the milk could flow anywhere in the fridge, but it wouldn’t be a good idea.

    What a stupidly simple and yet brilliant idea!

  • AyeRoxor April 13, 2007 at 21:34 PMLogin to Reply →

    Clearly, you guys have no idea how powerful small magnets can be. Two magnets the size you see here (about 3/4″ cube) could break a bone in your hand if you were playing with them, when made with the right magnetic material, which is NOT hard to make. Go to radio shack and look at the magnets in the base of car-mount magnetic CB antennas.

    But don’t let good, real information stop you from talking out your ass.

    Erik, nice Clerks 2 pseudo reference. ;)

    It appears the magnets are connecting to the metallic shelf, so you can slide all you want. Also pulling straight down may be extremely difficult, but if you tip the magnet it will break loose very easily using the leverage.

    I love the idea, but I figure with my OCD I’d not only be spacing the clothes equally from side to side but also worrying about hanging them at equal depths. eesh

    Four Poster Metal Bed – could really use some of these. I think one of the benefits to this system is that there is no tangling of hangers, the square blocks would prevent this. How many coats do people really have, and how often would these magnets need to be detached?

    I often wish I could shove some less appealing, though still occasionally bits of clothing up the back of the cupboard…

  • State Of Brain April 16, 2007 at 14:52 PMLogin to Reply →

    Nice idea.

    Hangers would cost quite a bit more though so it doesn’t make it quite as practical.

    Can you imagine a cleaners giving out one of these hangers for each piece of clothing. They wouldn’t make much of a profit. It’s just an example, but I think humans will be hard pressed to find a replacement for the current hanger anytime in the near future.

    You wouldn’t need to limit it to simply tshirts. Combine that with a small electromagnetically charged ‘ceiling’ for your closet/wardrobe, and you could hang the heaviest of coats.

    Until the power fails, at which point all your clothes are on the floor. Which would be particularly annoying (read: possibly dangerous) if you keep your flashlight in the closet.

  • Danno April 16, 2007 at 19:28 PMLogin to Reply →

    An idea that addresses the concerns of cost of rare earth magnets and hard to move/heavy coats stuff:

    A ceiling grid of holes and the hangars have four little hooks that are retracted into the top of the hangar when a button is pressed.

    So, you press the button, stick the hangar into the ceiling grid, release button, and let clothes hang.

    The best hangers I’ve found are the button folded EasyHanger. Bought them in an invention show in US. Not available in shops, but you can buy them online if you wish. Quite cheap actually. I have about 60 of them and they are great for hanging t-shirts and taking on holidays too! Check em out at http://www.hangersnest.com I am considering becoming a reseller for them in US. :-)
