The 10 Best Hanging Rods
This wiki has been updated 8 times since it was first published in January of 2020. A great way to reduce clutter in your closet or living space, hanging racks come in an array of shapes and sizes. Our list includes models that can stand alone, others that must be mounted between door jams and some that can be installed anywhere you have wall space. Before loading up the one you pick, make sure it's securely installed to avoid injury and keep your belongings off the floor. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. If you'd like to contribute your own research to the Wiki, please get started by reviewing this introductory video.

The best option for you will largely depend on your space and what you want to hang. If you are interested in installing heavy drapes, the RoomDividersNow 36in-56in may be the right choice for you. If you only have room on the back of your door then perhaps the Simple Houseware Over The Door will suite your needs.
While some options on this list like the Beokreu Tension come with everything you need for set up, many models must be installed with a screwdriver. Make sure you have the proper screws, mounts and tools before you get started putting together your new rack.
This ranking provides a general overview of what's available on the market. If you're specifically searching for a standalone option, our list of garment racks may be of interest. Similarly, if you need extra drawers but don't have room for a new dresser, have a look at our post on hanging closet organizers.
