Clothes Fall Off Hanging Bar

Is there a way to secure clothes hangers to prevent them from falling off the rod every time we relocate? We have a plain single rod and use tubular plastic hangers. Perhaps a different style rod or a different type of hanger?

There are hangers with a more complete loop type hook on them. We found some at WalMart which also have a suede like material on the rest of the hanger, meaning clothes don't slip off the hanger.

Some folks cut a foam swim noodle right down the center.
You know so it's a half circle when viewed from the end.
Place the 1/2 noodle over the clothes rod. It should be a snug fit between
the rod and the top of the closet.

OR try hanging them with the hooks facing the opposite way you do now.
Our first trailer would bounce the clothes off the rod.
I hung them in there "backwards" and they didn't fall off!!
I didn't think of that - it was suggested to me by others but it really worked.

Install a cup hook on each side of the closet at the level of the sloping portion of the hanger close to the hook and stretch a bungee cord from cup hook to cup hook.

That black 1" DIA foam pipe insulation might work too.

I am the hefty trash bag kind of packer, so rarely do I hang clothes in the camper....I have seen these hangers from the same folks who make the levelers.

We have two tension curtain rods that we put on each side of the main closet rod. Some people use shorter versions in the fridge to keep things in place while traveling. We place them right down on top of the shoulders of the hangers and everything stays in place.
