Never knew this could be a problem. Plastic hangers and our clothes never fall off.

I tried plastic hangers (several types) and they all fell off the rod. The special hangers from CW will stay on the rod but the clothes still slipped off. Now I use those plastic clips during travel along with keeping a few empty regular hangers for easy access at camp. Being a short gal I find it hard to remove the CW hangers.

This simple fix works 100%. Necessary materials:

1 18" slide-out tubular curtain rod
Length of split black foam pipe insulation (smallest diameter)

Fit curtain rod into place about 1/2" above the clothes rod. Cut length of foam tube and slip on to curtain rod. Adjust distance from permanent rod according to type of hangers you use.

Set it onto tops of hangers while on the road. When you get to your destination move it easily up so you can use your closet normally.

I changed our cloths rod out for the standard house rod and used small plastic hangers which fit better between the wall and closet door. Have not had a problem since.

I had the same problem and found the hangers I needed at Good Sam store. They work great!
