Headrest Coat Hanger

With the wet season always upon us in Seattle, I was unhappy throwing my wet coat on the floor of my van. So I searched around my house for some pieces to make a hanger that would mount to the posts on my headrest.


Found some 3/4″ aluminum rod to build the hanger around.


With my trusty Grizzly 0619 I drilled some holes which would allow little to no wiggle room on my headrest.

 


Slow and easy does it, you know you’ve got the right speed when you get the nice curls.


Cut to length for a test-fit.


I located some stainless rod in a scrap pile that easily bends with a little leverage, and a nice big wooden suit hanger.


I use JB Weld to combine the aluminum base to the stainless rod, and the stainless to the wood. It is crucial to rough up the surfaces to ensure a tight bond.


After curing, and a buff with Scotch Brite.


Perfect angle for hanging any kind of coat or jacket.


Good to go!
