      @hhjhj not over engineered huh have you seen any of their f****** toilets and using BMW as a comparison my guy you f***** up they're not even good anymore anyone who disagrees obviously is never owned a BMW past 20,000 miles because anyone who has no's something goes wrong whether it starts leaking oil for no apparent reason or any other fluid vital to the engines continued operation and you compare it to Lexus a company that is more or less successful because they make really good sports cars BMW sports cars are almost as good but well it's BMW they're kind of a joke in the car community for how unreliable most of their cars are passed a certain period kind of like Kia who literally designs their wiring harness to just Outlast most warranties they keep most tow truck companies in business actually then that in Toyota as well as BMW actually neither of them seem to like the cold in general

    This is still kind of a bad hanger. Quality hangers are made of wood, sometimes cedar which helps draw moisture out of the clothes, and are usually thicker to avoid causing unsightly creases over time.
    There's a couple of corners and edges from the metal pieces you put on the side that could easily catch and tear a dress shirt.

      This is one of the ultimate conundrums of western culture isn't it? We all have garages and sheds full of expensive tools that get used a couple times and spend most of their lives just SITTING, doing absolutely nothing.
      I mean think about it, most of us have lawn mowers that spend most of their lives just sitting...... Even if you mowed your lawn for 1 hour every week that still means like 90% of the time it just sits there doing nothing, not to mention all the other tools and resources needed to maintain it. Multiply that by millions, if not billions of people.......... Then factor in that people will use the lawn mower for a year, not store it properly so the carb gets all gummed up so instead of fixing it they just throw it away and buy a new one...... Even if people DID used that lawn mower for 100 years it still probably isn't that efficient or good for the planet.
      It's just not really efficient. It's fun don't get me wrong, I love having a bunch of tools, but I must admit that most of the time they just sit, they are just expensive paper weights that sit and wait for that ONE time I need them, and what's also interesting to point out is that FOR ME it's cheaper to buy the tool and do the work myself then it is to pay for a service usually. Usually with mechanic work it's CHEAPER for me to buy the tools, even EXPENSIVE tools, and do the work myself then it is to just go to a mechanic, which I guess is thanks to economies of scale.
      The hidden cost of this though is that I now have sheds full of tools that I have to worry about, also my time goes into the cost, so it probably is still cost effective to just go to a mechanic to save space and time.

    I also made a super heavy duty metal hanger, to hold my Ballistic vest and AR500 plates, it’s a beautiful hanger.
    When I hung it up in my closet it ripped my pole off the wall and tore a big ass hole in my wall… when it all fell it broke an walkie talkie and exploded 2 gallons of water I was storing for emergencies.
    My dumb joke caused a bunch of money worth of damage and the cost of a handful of destined items like my handheld radio and it snapped one of my camp knives in half..

    I have thought about fixing clothes hangers. My PERSONALY main problem with my clothes hangers is with T shirts, usually when I take a t shirt off of a clothes hanger I have to slide it off causing the neck to become stretched a bit. I would prefer the clothes hanger to fold inwards so that I can remove the T shirt without having to stretch the neck if that makes any sense.
    I hope people get what I mean. I HATE when my Tshirts have wrinkled stretched necks. I also am not a fan of folding clothes. If there was a pivot point in the middle of the clothes hanger so that it can be folded inserted into the Tshirt then butterfly out then it would be PERFECT.

    *Colin please create another hanger, that will allow me to put the hanger through the neck.* 😊
    I am very lazy at laundry and always put the hanger in from the top.
    Over time the neck of T-shirt and sweaters get stretched, due to the constant pushing of hangers through the neck hole.
    Could you make a hanger that would allow us to put hangers through the neck holes; and if the hanger-arms actually reached to the shoulders of the garment, it would avoid those annoying lumps created by the hangers' corners.
    *Folding arms which click or toggle up and down? *
    Good luck on this mission. I hope you accept and enjoy this challenge. 🤠

  • holohulolo
    holohulolo 5 months ago

    I was quite disappointed that the hanger doesnt have movable parts. I mean it could be one of those foldable hangers that helps you slip it in from the collar easier. But add a bunch of complicated mechanics to make that happen. Like maybe having hydraulics to help ot extend back to the full length slowly.

  • Gary Chen

    I wouldn't even consider this over engineered, you could've added a lot of functional design to a hanger for this much effort! E.g. Swivel hook, a slot to make hanging closed collar shirts easier, pants bar/clips...This just a mega beefy hanger.

      @laus 99 Sure, I'm the delusional one, says the guy who _literally claims I don't exist_ because I'm a woman who doesn't care about shoes and bags and knows thousands of women who also don't care for them 😆
      That would be pretty funny if I weren't so sincerely sorry for you. Apparently you can't cope with the idea that people with vaginas are not a monolith with one shared brain. That sort of immature nonsense usually comes from being hurt and being deeply sensitive to it, so I'm sure you've suffered. But then these asinine beliefs/the way you lash out traps you in a cycle where no reasonable woman will go near you, so you end up lying to yourself that reasonable women don't exist, so you can pretend you're not the problem.
      That's a really sad and pathetic way to choose to live.
      You are capable, fyi, of pulling your head out of the sand and turning your social issues around. I hope you choose to try. If not, oh well, it's your prerogative to lie to yourself and cope with reality as you see fit. I tried my best.
      Inb4 you throw a "ha ha tl;dr I'm definitely not rereading this and crying angrily" deflection or most likely make up nonsense narratives to project onto me to distract from you being called on your crap. I mean, maybe you're above those tantrums, idk, I'm not saying you'll handle confrontation that poorly, but it seems probable and I don't care to be a greenscreen for you to work out what you hate about yourself -- so, best of luck to you, we're done here 👋

      @Belagu "Overengineering, is the act of designing a product or providing a solution to a problem in an elaborate or complicated manner, where a simpler solution can be demonstrated to exist with the same efficiency and effectiveness as that of the original design"

      Over engineered?

    Doesn't look over engineered to me, as it implies a lot of extra functions, space saving etc and it does none of that. It just looks over decorated or something. Does look nice though. Good for minimalistic people with very little clothing, because it takes up space.

    That hanger would be perfect for hanging up a ballistic vest and helmet, with the right setup it could hold all of that plus a stocked go-bag. I'll take 10

    If it was over-engineered, it'd probably have a swiveling top part as well as another extension to hang a pair of pants as well, so you get an entire outfit on a single hanger.

    If you wanted it over engineered, you should have made the hook into a clockwork mechanism to adjust the shoulders out.

    No no an overenginerred clothes hanger would be something like a tensegrity triangular truss with spectra tensile members and a cfrp hollow tube compressive member and a carabiner locking hook. It would be rated to 950±4N symmetric load capacity over 100M cycles at 1.5 FOS. It weighs 9.70g each and costs $30000 for a minimum production run of 100.

    I thought you were going to make it spring loaded on the ends that give way you can pull the shirt off without removing the hanger, then after that the springs pull the hangar back to its original position.

    I didn't see any engineering much less overengineering. The product weighs fifty times as much and costs one thousand times more than the original wire hanger while barely improving load capacity at all due to using the same bent wire hook.

      I still have both eyes only because I was wearing safety glasses 48 years ago when I went to peek into a Quadrajet carburetor and stabbed my eye into the air cleaner mounting spike. No harm done, but only because I had taken that very simple precaution.

    You could use this for self defense, best make sure you don't drop it on your toes. I mean I'm assuming it is aluminum or something light so maybe not that bad, but cool project.
