I can hang a large load of laundry on this storage rack, roll it into the room with the woodstove for quick drying, and collapse into into a "store behind the laundry room door" space after using. I was having my doubts when assembling it because the parts were light weight and I thought "no way will it hold a big washer load of jeans" but it is well balanced and a big load does indeed fit on it. Nifly little sock hooks, and fold out extensions for holding up to 12 hangers for drying shirts and tops. Would definitely recommend this to everyone who wants to avoid burning fossil fuel to run a clothes dryer.
This is a very handy rack that we can move on its casters from the dressing room ( where we store it) to the laundry room to hang clothes to dry, adding moisture to our dry house as well as conserving energy by not using the dryer. There is lots of room with the multiple hanging rods, and you can use some, or all as needed. We do not use the "sock holders", but really use all the rest. The folding hanger "wings" are great for hanging shirts after they are dry.

great product! The drying rack went together quickly and gets daily use. It can hold a full load of laundry and allows good airflow for drying. There are lots of clever features that make using it a pleasure. The sock clips and the "wings" for hanging are especially useful. It is surprising just how well designed and built this item is. It is solid, yet easily moved on its multiple wheels. I tend to keep one side folded down (fits closer to the wall) but can still use the bars on the folded side for items like camisoles, tanks, running tights, etc. I have purchased 2 of these and am thinking about buying more to give as planet friendly Christmas gifts.

Ok, I was looking for a clothing rack that I could easily move around from room to room.. And I found it. This rack is soo weird. But so usuable. You can put alot of laundry on it. I didn't think I would like or use the "sock hooks", but I use them all the time for socks and underwear and other light items. The fact that it rolls and folds is a great asset. I still use my wooden traditional racks; but this one gets filled first. I little pricey; but I believe I'm getting my money's worth. May purchase a second one for my summer cottage where I do not have any laundry facilities.

I hate going to the laundromat which made me purchase a hand crank washer and a clothes spinner. I was using one of those old fashioned wooden accordian drying racks which would fall down if you bumped it the wrong way. Knew that somewhere there had to be something better and sturdier. Looked around with no luck, so checked Overstock as a last resort. A miracle happened then. I found the most wonderful drying rack ever!!! Extremely simple to assemble, very sturdy and lots of extras I never thought about. Adjustable rack heights, 3 sets on each side, two swing-out racks for hangers at the top, the top rail will hold blankets, and as a bonus, the end of each rack has sock holder clips, enough to hold 36 pairs of socks!!!! Oops, almost forgot. Very bottom bars can hold sneakers to dry. Each rack, 3 to a side can be used independently. Only need one rack, use it. The rest will stay neatly folded down. Even the wheels at the bottom fold in to save space!! Was a little reluctant due to the price but it's WORTH IT'S WEIGHT IN GOLD!!! So sturdy and practical that it could be passed on for generations. Do NOT hesitate to purchase. You will not regret it. Hard to find words to describe how good this is.

I NEVER WRITE REVIEWS!! My husband is tired of me telling him how much I love this Rack. We have a large family of 6 and it has always been one of the most dreaded chores. We always had laundry piles, etc. Not anymore. First I was impressed that the set up was so easy. I did it in the middle of the night with very little light. It all just snapped into place. We live in AZ, a very dry place, so hanging clothes is great here. Everything dries within a couple hours or less. It is easy to set up and take down the racks. It takes up very little space(a lot less then those piles of laundry). I should say, I am also impressed with its durability. I ran into it really hard, ya kind of a clutz, and was sure I had to break it but it withstood the collision with no damage. MY arm, not so much. LOVE LOVE LOVE this item and want to buy more for wedding gifts, etc. everyone should have one!

The package came well-packed and in excellent condition. Assembly was very easy according to instructions and NO TOOLS NEEDED! I had the thing together in 15 minutes, tops. It is simple to fold and unfold, simple to use, simple to roll wherever you want it. I was concerned about balancing it, but have not had any problems. The sock hooks are excellent for bras and panties, camisoles, slips or any other delicate item that could slide off in a breeze. Yes, you can use clothespins to hang things. I also re-purposed the mesh from a sweater dryer to form a space for things to lay flat. I seldom use my electric clothes dryer (never in summer, seldom in winter, because its so expensive, so until now I have torn through several flimsy racks do to heavy use. I am hoping this one lasts. I've only had it a month but I am as pleased as I can be with it. I have dried everything from blankets to hosiery without a hitch. I love the adjustable racks and how you can fold them down alternately to hang longer items. Overall I am very pleased. One caveat: if you have parrots (like I do) they will find this clothes rack irresistible for climbing and playing. My African grey unhooked all my socks and panties and pooped all over my clean laundry while I was otherwise occupied. So in the even that it doesn't work out as a clothes drying rack, it WILL be used as a parrot play-gym. Perhaps I should get them their own!
This is exactly what I was looking for and Overstock had the best price. It was easy enough to put together and it is perfect for what I want. I'd been using a wood scissor rack that was getting old and I wanted something that would be functional and look more up to date. This is perfect and I utilize every part of it. I had read some reviews that made me worry about the quality, but it is great, you just know what you can hang on it. If I washed a comforter, I would hang it on the top, multi-purpose bar, pants are fine on the drying rack, socks and underwear have their own hooks. I love the wings that fold out and hold hangers. Sometimes I tumble my shirts dry for a few minutes and hang them to completely dry. I waited a few weeks to leave a review so I would actually have a history with this rack and it has lived up to my expectations.
After all the great reviews on here, I was expecting a really great product! WRONG! It is made of plastic and upon assembly, it was already broken and cannot possibly withstand daily usage and folding up and down. Returning this right away!
5 of the 6 racks were broken when I received the product. Obviously this is a recurring problem as I read the reviews before buying and decided to give them the benefit of the doubt. BAD IDEA. Junk, Junk, Junk. I believe it is a packing issue as well as a product quality issue.
I was very excited to have purchased this product, but only to have arrive 10mins ago and lots of the bits and pieces arrived broken! ;S Now my husband is trying to pack it all back into the box for a return .. so sad.. Anyone else got another recommendation for a nice quality drying rack?
I should have paid attention to the bad reviews this product received. It is a great concept and I was so looking forward to getting this, but was disappointed when I saw that the negative reviews were the correct ones, very cheaply made for the price. Shouldn't pay anymore than half the price. I am using it although two of the hanging bars on the bottom rack were already broken upon delivery, and then two others broke while I was assembling this. Too much hassle to return. You can hang quite a bit of laundry on this but it should be much sturdier for the price. I am more and more disappointed with the quality of the products that I buy from this site, it may be my last purchase.
Good as far as drying space is concerned. However, material is very flimsy plastic, so don't overload. It will break under weight of wet, heavy clothes. Must balance weight evenly.

If it was not for the broken pieces it would have been fine, but the broken pieces are important parts of this and need to be replaced

I thought it was really durable and sturdy but when I assembled it and started using the product, I noticed that the metal rods are actually bending a little with just a few clothes and towels hanging on them. I usually only use the first two upper racks because I do hang towels which I don't want to touch the floor. I do like the compact set up combined with the fold-able leg with wheels, the tiny clips on the side which I use for socks and other tiny garments. All in all the item is helpful and useful specially when it starts raining outside or the wind is blowing strong outside, I can pull them all in without removing the clothes or towels from the rack.

Wasnt impressed with the quality of anything however, i must say, it can hold clothes. Always gives me the impression everything is going to collapse (but it doesnt). Its worth the money, but not a penny more.
