“What the heck is that growing on your shoulder?!”
It’s not a growth, my clothes hanger did it!
This is primarily a problem for anyone with wide shoulders (most tall
people). The widest hangers I have come across are 22″ (see image link below), which are decent.
But some people will require even wider. Additionally, even people with narrow shoulders may wish for an alternative with less pointy corners. Below is a tall
- 3/8″ (outer diameter) copper pipe (sold at hardware stores for about a buck a foot, yes a bit expensive if you make enough for your entire wardrobe, but as an investment it’s a good hedge against inflation 😉 think gold bullion but a lot cheaper!)
- Steel wire clothes hanger
- Drill and 3/32″ drill bit
- Wire cutter
- Pipe cutter (could use hacksaw and vice)
- Tape Measure
The video below shows you step by step how to do this adaptation. Essentially, all you have to do is cut and bend the pipe to your desired length and shape, insert the steel wire coat hanger into a drilled hole and do a few wraps to keep it there, file down the sharp edges, and voila, goodbye clothes hanging phobia!
