The GlideHanger™ from HangerWare Inc. is a new and improved clothing hanger created to make it fast and easy to hang garments. When used with any narrow necked garment, the product can be quickly inserted or removed through the neck of the item, and it is fully functional for all other clothes as well. The GlideHanger eliminates the need to unbutton, unzip, or otherwise undo narrow necked garments. It is especially helpful for garments that do not have buttons, zippers, or other fasteners, and would require a normal hanger to be threaded up through the body of the garment.
Hang a garment in a second
“My product allows you to quickly and easily hang a garment in about one second. To thread a hanger up through the bottom of a garment, if you’re adept at that, takes about ten seconds,” explains Sebastian Wittenstein, product developer and company founder.
Wittenstein was inspired to develop the GlideHanger because he was in a profession that often required him to dress nicely. That meant he had a lot of expensive shirts he needed to hang up. Working long hours, Wittenstein did not have the time or patience to deal with old-fashioned hangers, and he set out to create a more functional product.
Durable ABS plastic
The GlideHanger is made of ABS plastic, a high impact and durable material. “It will not break or shatter, and it holds up well over time,” Wittenstein reports. “To test its strength, we borrowed a friend’s stainless steel chainmail shirt, which weighed 15 pounds, and it held it.”
Great demo product
“The GlideHanger is ideal for flea market sales. Shoppers are always looking for unique things, and it is a fantastic demonstration product,” Wittenstein notes. “You can demonstrate it in about 15 seconds. It is simple to use and people really love it. In our product trials, people didn’t ask many questions, just ‘where can I buy one?'” The company has produced a short video that shows how to use the GlideHanger.
The minimum order is 15 hangers. Wholesale is $2 each, with volume discounts available. Suggested retail price is $3 a piece. HangerWare is in the process of developing marketing materials. Visit the firm at ASDLV, March 16-19, at booth SU2578.
