We’d love to hear how you re-purpose shower rod hooks too! Share your ideas & photos in the comments below . .


Several of our members have mentioned that they’re concerned that the rings would all slide to one side or the other on the hanger, leaving an uneven “mess”, so to speak.

To prevent this issue entirely, take a hot glue gun or a caulking gun and add small “beads” of glue(or clear silicone caulking) every inch or so on the hanger. This will prevent the items from sliding or shifting.
