    Cheap material/falsely advertised

    The package claims that the drying rack easily folds for storage. This rack does not fold once it is assembled. When attempting to fold it following assembly, two of the cheap plastic black pieces broke completely off the rack. I'll still use it because I need a drying rack, but I wouldn't purchase this or other products like it again, nor would I recommend it. It's going to take up a ton of space near my laundry room since it won't fold, but so be it I guess. Pictures included of the cheap broken pieces.

    Might as well be made of cheap, brittle plastic

    This has fairly sturdy metal bars but the plastic connectors are garbage. The plastic connectors began breaking off from the start. In the beginning we re-glued them but it's not worth it anymore. More are broken than not and we're careful with it. It's not the weight of clothes, it can just be barely tapped and the rods come out of their sockets and the connectors break off, often leaving the disks in the socket. I wish someone would make a sturdy drying rack. In my experience, the "deluxe" and "heavy duty" ones have been worse than the cheap basic ones.

    Has some issues

    The rack is easy to assemble, inserting the rods into the slots provided. It took me less than 5 minutes to assemble with a 2 year old and 5 year old "helping". THe unit is a little sticky in terms of opening the accordion to full height but nothing that 10 seconds of patience can't conquer. Within the first day of use one rod broke. There is a black plastic disc attached to the end of each metal rod that sits in the angled slots of the unit. A black disc broke off leaving a rod hanging. I called the company directly #as directed by the bright yellow card included with the unit# and informed them of the broken piece. THe customer service agent took my information and promised to send a new rod, which would arrive in 5-7 days. It has now been 10 calendar days with no rod and yesterday when I opened the unit I found another black disc had broken off. Aside from the poor quality of the rod-disc attachment the unit works very well for our needs. I'll be using it this winter to hang dry cloth diapers, providing I can get these rods replaced.

    I purchased this rack at the local walmart store to replace the smaller wooden rack I had. What a difference! The wooden rods started warping and my clothes had that woody smell. I seem to be doing laundry every day and my power bill was through the roof! I switched to a drying rack and would just throw in the 3/4 way dried clothes into the dryer to work out the wrinkles and to soften them with drier sheets. The metal rack has been great for the last year- it sustained 4-5 heavy towels at once, as well as 4-5 pairs of jeans, sweaters, you name it. It is sturdy enough. just last week I think I put some wet laundry over some somewhat dry clothes and the plastic piece that holds the rod in place basically broke off. There was no way for me to attach it or superglue it back so I am placing an order for the sturdier version today. I sure got plenty of use for this rack for just $20 I paid at the store so I am happy. Some of the rods did sometimes pop out of place, wish there was some kind of a keep-it-in-place mechanism available.

    Don’t waste your money

    Awful. 3 of the bars broke while I was putting it together!

    Very poor product, do not waste your money

    What a terrible product, as others have said the plastic connectors are brittle and the pop-riveting very poor also. This one was a replacement for a previous damaged-when-opened one - I supposed that I should have been on guard when the person in front of me in the line was also returning exactly the same item
    I’m returning this product. I opened it and couldn’t even put it together. All of the black pieces at the end so of the rods used to hold them in place we’re shattered inside the box.


    This drying Rack very good, light weight and easy to move.
    Perfect for indoor drying of delicates that should not be in the dryer.

    Works great, but needs a little oil to come apart

    First of all, I didn't have all the problems that the people who gave this product low scores had. However, when disassembling the rack for storage, the two sides that you have to pull apart do get stuck, however, all that you have to do is put a little bit of oil on the plastic connectors that come apart, and they then pull apart very easily. However, the manufacturer could have told you that, therefore, I'm giving this a rating of 4 instead of 5. But other than that, it works great for what it is designed to do.
