Ryan Landis was 10-years-old when he invented HangEase, a collapsible hanger. After breaking hanger after hanger from yanking off his shirts hanging in the closet, the aspiring inventor created a prototype for a kids-friendly collapsible hanger. They were sold at Walmart, back in 2006. But nearly 10 years later, they’re impossible to find. There’s a HangEase website but no way to order the product. And it’s not available on Amazon.
There are competitors online including iSuperb. While the product doesn’t work exactly like HangEase, it does have a unique design. An iSuperb hanger is designed to work for both baby’s clothes (when the hanger is half unfolded, see photo below) and for adult clothes when fulled unfolded. A 6-pack of iSuperb foldable hangers sells for $8 online.
