I bought this to hold all of our winter coats as we had been throwing them on the dining rooms chairs. Was very easy to put together, the base is quite heavy and everything went together smoothly. There is an easy to follow visual guide, not very complicated at all, and all of the attachments were a pleasant surprise, I guess I didn't realize how many hooks there were. Took my husband and I about 15 minutes to put togehter, minus the usual bickering, and it was very sturdy. I especially like the lower pegs to hang scarves and gloves, possibly a purse, will have to see. For the money, this is an excellent value.
