    Heavy Duty Coat Hangers . . . .

    Now that I have organized the garage I have a great place to hang my riding gear. No more pile of heavy gear over a chair. Does anyone have a suggestion as to where I could buy HD coat hangers?
    Thanks,

    I hear that you can get HD coat hangers from the bandanahead/chrome shop for $100 each.

    While the selection of dry cleaners is shrinking due to EPA regulations, if you check with a dry cleaner that is doing the actual dry cleaning themselves, I think you will get what you need. It's good to note that a lot of the small shops have the big shops do their dry cleaning for them (the sub the cleaning out). I think you'll find that they have an assortment that will work. OM

    Aerostich sells some with wide shoulder plates. I think that they call them shoulder savers or something like that.

    Best ever! I bought a bunch of them, never saw a heavier duty hanger. Yeah, they're expensive and worth every penny.

    Most places like Target and K-Mart sell 6-packs of standard wooden suit hangars; BB&B always seems more expensive...

    In the back pages of Cycle World, there are ads from "Black and White" for super-heavy-duty hangars for your leathers.

    Joseph A. Bank, the men's clothing store. Got one for my Roadcrafter and it was half the price of Aerostich's.

    Try your local Dive Shop. If a wet suit hanger can handle a wet suit, it should be able to handle your riding gear.

    Dealer?

    My Dealer in Nashville is continually trying to give them away. It seems more often than not people are not taking the hangers with them when they purchase new apparel.

    Gorilla Hangers

    Well,
    Since my company is a distributor for these, I purchased 10.
    Gorilla Big Gear Hanger
    I already put 4 of them to use and gave 2 away.


    I also have 2 of these, one in my garage and one at work.

    The key for these is having wide shoulder plates. When it is cold in the morning like it often is where I live narrow hangers cause the coat to form the material into quite painful ways sometimes - wider is good.

    That's where I got one with wide shoulders for my Stich. Handles the weight.

    If you want to spend more than anyone should for a hanger, will also hold pants, even has adjustments (have we needed anything more than an adjustable hanger?)!

    R184, has the right idea, dive gear hangers are the way to go
    You can hang all your gear without worrying about failure
