Coat Hooks
I know this is a small complaint, but my jackets always fall off the hook. Hangers will just not stay on. I'll probably add a little rubber piece to the hanger and hope for a better grip, but it's really p!ssing me off!

I agree, the coat hooks in our cars suck! Once I tried to hang up something that needed to dry for a bit, and any sort of turn on the road..fall! And for the record it wasn't anything heavy either.

Does anyone have any suggestions for "aftermarket" hooks? :P

I picked up my dry cleaning this morning and couldn't fit all of it. I have as much as I can hanging on either side, but I have to go home, drop it off and then go back for the rest. I had "oh shit" handles in my Fusion (previous car) and they'd hold everything. Wish I had them in this.

@captainsubt3xt, so you just couldn't put them on the rear seats ? You had to do a second trip to have all of them ?!? I just hope the dry cleaner is not 50 miles away from your home.

Nah, it's right down the road. I don't want to pay to have something cleaned and pressed, then have it sitting to wrinkle in my car all day while I'm at the office. Dry cleaning isn't cheap.

i have had the same issue. thick plastic hangers always fall off. thin metal ones are typically OK.

I've tried thin metal and suit hangers that have a little thicker metal. Neither stay. the hooks just aren't deep enough. I may end up filing the bed down a little.

You are right these are the worst coat hook I have ever seen. My laundry has fallen off the hook EVERY TIME since I have had this car. The hangers will just not stay on.
Next time I'm at the dealer i'm going to write it up.

A better hook
I like to hang more than a couple of things from the coat hook and you guys are right..... the stock hooks are garbage. I was going to try using hooks from other cars, but figured it'd be a project to make one on the mill. This thing did the trick and doesn't look half bad. Only made one as I only use the left side. I doubt NHTSA would approve as a rear passenger might get a head wound from it in a crash, but nobody sits there in this car anyway. [hihi]
