No Stretch Hanger   (+8, -1)  [vote for, against]
A hanger that bends in on itself so as not to stretch out your shirts

How many times have you stretched out a shirt with a small collar while trying to get a hanger in it?

The solution is a hanger with a joint (just a bendable area) on the bottom and at the tips of the two wings. when pulled vertically it easily slips into the shirt, then is pushed horizontal, and two wings snap into the arms.


1. One could just put a standard hanger in through the bottom of the shirt, however depending on shirt size/hanger size it can still cause stretching, not to mention, who does that?

2. the bottom joint is a click-in ball n' socket joint preventing collapse.

[HM] wasn't that in Raiders of the Lost Arc? The viewing audience was lead to believe it was an "interrogation" device before realizing it was a coat hanger.

I don' know how to properly fold shirts. I even put pants through hangers. I only have a small drawer and its filled with "things".

Erm, yeah, I always just put it in through the bottom. Generally, though, I'm working with oxford shirts which I drape then button. [+-]
