Build a DIY coat rack with hooks in 10 steps
Our American office recently put in a new coat rack in their office and created this video on how to build it. You can finally stop throwing all your coats and jackets on the floor! Watch Anthony show you how to put it all together to build this uniquely designed Industrial Tube Coat Rack.
Parts you'll need
Tools you need
- A drill
- 4 wall screws
- A measuring tape or ruler
- A mallet
- An allen key. Or ratchet with an allen wrench attachment.
Mark on the tube where you want the hooks to go. We recommend using equal spacing.
Now you can slide the hooks and rail supports onto the tube. Start by sliding the first rail support on the tube followed by your chosen number of hooks. Then slide the second rail support onto the other end. Line the hooks up to the marks you made on the tube to ensure they are where you would like them to be.
Now that you have everything in place, you can lock down the hooks and rail supports by tightening the set screws using the Allen Key.
Once you've got everything tightened down, you can now hammer in the malleable plugs on outer end of each rail support using your mallet.
If you don't already have a place in mind, you'll want to decide on your coat rack location. We recommend placing it next to the door of your home or office. You'll also want to make sure it is at an appropriate height for everyone that will be using the coat rack.
With your location and height set, you can start to mark and drill the holes for the rail supports. It's a good idea to grab a friend to help you out in order to hold the coat rack up while you mark the holes. With the wall marked, you can drill in the holes.
Now all you've got left is to attach the coat rack to the wall. Attach the coat rack to the wall by screwing in the wall screws through the pre-made slots in the rail supports into the holes that you drilled earlier.
That's it! You're all done. Now you have coat rack for your home or office that not only looks great but keeps your jackets nice and organised.
That was easy wasn't it?
