4.0 out of 5 stars More than adequate for the average person, 19 Jan 2014

This review is from: Premier Housewares Hanging Rail with Wheels - Chrome (Kitchen & Home)
The Premier Housewares hanging rail is never going to win any awards for its looks, but it is very good value and more than adequate for everyday clothing. It arrives in something like 16 or 17 different pieces, which simply push together without requiring any screws, bolts or tools of any kind. Once you've worked out what bits are what, and which bits go where (which takes all of 20 seconds, tops), the actual construction of the rail shouldn't take any longer than a minute or two, on the basis of going a little more slowly so as not to bend or scratch any of the tube sections. It really is simplicity in itself.

Once built, the rail is a fairly sturdy beast, height-adjustable up to a little over 150 cm and with four coaster wheels to move it about. The height is adjusted by two arms that lock into place using push-squeeze levers rather than fixed bolts - it will be interesting to see if these lose their ability to hold the rail up over time. The wheels can't be locked and they do have a tendency to move the rail about as you take clothes of it, but fortunately they can be removed quite easily to make it static. All told, the rail isn't particularly substantial - it's light, the tube sections aren't particularly thick and the rest of it is plastic - but unless you're really cack-handed with it I can't see it breaking under normal use. The one part that might start to tarnish is the actual hanging rail along on the top, which being chrome will almost certainly scratch over time.

I bought two rails, one to hold my work suits and winter tops, and one to hold my shirts. There's obviously more weight on the former as the items it holds are heavier, but neither is yet to show any signs of sagging or strain. I don't have any particularly heavy clothes such as leather jackets or trench coats, but what I am asking the rails to hold is what I would consider to be pretty average stuff that many (most) men would have. Each rail can comfortably hold the equivalent of something like 20 shirts, 10 suits or coats without squashing them together, although you can get more on if you don't mind a bit of possible creasing.
