Our Story

Meet The Founder

Our founder, Dan Martinson, has a long track record of inventing useful consumer products.  His most successful example is the Gear Tie Reusable Rubber Twist Tie.  After struggling to strap a duffle bag to an ATV rack with a bungee cord, Dan decided to invent something new.  Today, Gear Ties are sold by leading retailers all over the world and are made right here in our home state of Minnesota!

The Hanger, Reimagined

The idea for the Perfect Hanger was born from a simple curiosity.  Dan was looking in his wife’s closet one day and was puzzled by the odd mix of different kinds of hangers.  Velvet hangers that seemed to break often and collect lint.  Wood hangers that took up lots of closet space and left shoulder bumps.  And other types of hangers that nothing seemed to stay on.  There had to be a better way.

Superior Design, Premium Materials

The Perfect Hanger took years of research, engineering, prototypes, and failures to perfect the design. Though originally made in the USA, unforeseen price increases and production limitations forced us to move our manufacturing overseas in order to offer our products at a competative price with the inflated costs. Today, we are proud to offer what we believe is the most elegant, functional, and durable clothes hanger offered by anyone.

Above the Rest

Velvet Hangers

Velvet hangers are designed to hold your clothes in place but leave behind a velvet mess, collect dust, and break easily.

Hard Plastic Hangers

Hard molded plastic hangers create shoulder bumps, are cheap, and break under pressure.

Wooden Hangers

Wooden hangers take up way too much valuable space in your closet and leave shoulder bumps.

Cheap Wire Hangers

Cheap wire hangers are a thing of the past... unless you locked your keys in your car.

Made in USA

Proud to support American manufacturing in our home state of Minnesota.
