Unique features & benefits: The CloseHanger® is a collapsible hanger, which folds in half for easy insertion and removal through the collar of any shirt, sweater or blouse, whether buttoned or unbuttoned.

Once inside, the clever spring-loaded design allows the hanger to spring back to its original full size. A button feature at the end of the hanger arms keeps the hanger folded and closed for easy storage at home or in luggage when traveling.

For busy professionals and executives both at home and traveling on the road, The CloseHanger® is an invaluable time and space saving product. A package includes two or three hangers.

The CloseHanger® has a proven sales track record:
