Versatile and easy to use For years I struggled to use a stepladder to get my clothes off the upper racks of my walk in closet or I had to rely on others to get them down for me. A few month ago I saw a dressing stick at a store and I knew I had to get one for me. Such a simple tool, but it makes getting the hangers up or down with little effort. I can also use the stick to get some of the smaller (fabric) bins, which have a handle in the front, off the upper shelves, but it’s a little more difficult to get them back up with the stick. However, it gets easier with practice.If you have really tall racks/shelves, this stick might be too short, but for rooms with 8 or 9 ft. ceilings, this stick is just the right size.I have also used the stick for other tasks, like putting the pull cord from blinds on a hook that is out of my reach (some of my blinds stay down all the time, so I tie the pull cord together and hang the cord on a hook out of the way (and out of reach of pets and kids).

Not very durable…. The hook at the end easily bent at the point of where it screws into the end of the dowel. I don’t know if the other similar higher priced products would bend in the same manner or not. I wanted to use it for removing my shoes and this product is just not meant for that sort of pressure. I gave it two stars rather than one since I suppose it could be used for light weight clothing.

These dressing sticks are very simple tools. Unfortunately they … These dressing sticks are very simple tools. Unfortunately they are also made of non durable materials. I have purchase two now and both of them broke in the same way. This one did not last as long as the first one. The first one came in a complete Hip Kit collection. This dressing stick was purchased separately as a replacement for the first. The hook has a threaded screw end approximately an inch long which screws into the end of a wooden dowel. When too much leverage is put on the hook it causes the end of the wooden dowel to split. This typically happened for me when removing my socks. Getting them over my heal would put more strain on the hook than than dowel end could handle. The hook is weak also so it would bend out of shape first but eventually the force would break the dowel.
