    The container store has belt or tie hooks that already match their hangers... http://www.containerstore.com/shop?productId=10011720&N=&Ntt=belt+hanger

    I really like this idea because the hanger fits in with my other hangers, rather than taking up a lot of room. There are often odd hangers like this at thrift stores and the cup hooks are available at any hardware or big box stores.

    I love this. I'm going to do it. I think you have to buy the hooks and hangar separately.

    Yes I love this too and need to have one. But where can I buy?

    OK, the belts are taken care of. Now how about some suggestions on how to stow those extra hangers.

    Just make sure you always have something on the center one :O)

    I think the hook should have those spring that keep things in place on them. Will the hanger slide off the bar if it is not balanced?
