Cheap and cheerful, does the job.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Electric Revolving Tie Rack for 30 ties - Handy Organiser for Ties, Belts, Scarves and more (Apparel)
** revised review ** down from three stars to one star. Item broken after just two months. It is far too cheap and nasty, what a waste of time :-(. The concept and basic design is perfect, I'll try to find a more expensive version that will work properly and last.
** original review **
Revolving electric tie racks are a superb gadget for anyone with many ties, much better and easier to use than any manual tie rack I've tried. I bought this one to replace a similar unit I bought years ago which broke. This one is not as good as the one I had, the track revolves quite slowly and noisily. It does however do the job adequately and I would by one again.
I think this would be better than a rail mounted tie rack as it doesn't take up room on the clothes rail for clothes. Fit it to the inside of the wardrobe door At a height where it won't bash the shoulders of all your shirts. Has 30 tie hangers but I've got about 45 on there by putting more than one tie on some hangers.
Would make a great present for a man with many ties.

Do you not think overloading it by 50% may have something to do with breaking it? Maybe the motor burnt out, because you did not get a 2nd one? just a thought!

It's a fair point, but no, I don't believe it broke because I'd put too many ties on. It sounded very "grindy" and worked very slowly and laboriously from the beginning before I'd even put any ties on. At first I thought the batteries I had tried must be flat and tried more only to discover that really was the best it could do. I could tell from the beginning that the rubber belt that revolves wasn't meshing well with the drive wheel, it was almost at the point of falling off, hence only three stars originally. I may have been unlucky, but from other reviews, I would say that the build quality of this item is so poor as to make it not worthwhile. It's a shame as a previous very similar item lasted me for years and I loved it. I've just bought a set of metal tie hooks to screw to the back of the wardrobe door instead :-(

I use a manual one personally, you flip it right or left and the ties hang sideways. Easier option in my book. No gadgets had it for years. Really easy to work lol and no mechanical noises! Can not face that before my first cup of coffee. Unfortunately running out of space on that one.
