Real Simple® Scarf/Belt Hangers in Black (Set of 2)
I've been using these for the past two years and they have worked wonderfully. I don't use the hooks on them, just the scarf rings, but they hold heavier winter weather scarves as well as your every day scarves without any problem. I purchased two packs of them (I have a ton of scarves!) and did have one of them break, but that was after I was pulling luggage off of the shelf above the hangers and it hit the hanger as fell to the ground. I can't fault the product for breaking at that point as unless it were a heavy wood hanger or metal hanger, it would do that. The other three are still holding up wonderfully and I would definitely recommend them.

Does The Job Without Frills
I purchased this product in store about two years ago. Mine are cream colored, but other than that the set I purchased are identical to these. I have a lot of scarves and have outgrown this set and am in the market for something that hangs vertically, but thought I'd add my experience with these. These have a light felt-like coating that is gentile on scarves. I don't use the hooks for belts, (the BB&B description of the hooks says they're for jewelery, though I wouldn't use them for that either. Seems like a good way to lose jewelry in the bottom of your closet and/or snag your scarves) however, I have several of the plastic rings that that were originally purchased with some of my scarves as they were how the scarves hung on racks. The plastic rings "clip" perfectly into the hooks and I only hang light-weight silk scarves on those. I have to concur that the hooks don't seem to me like they would withstand heavy belts and could easily break as other reviewers have said they've done, that being said, I have only two rings clipped onto the hooks, and only lightly use them.
I have the regular scarf loops weighted down with multiple heavy scarves in each loop. I can honestly say that I've been rough with these hangers at times when yanking at a scarf and haven't had a single problem. They definitely seem like that part is heavy duty. I just have too many scarves now and am looking for something with more loops that hang vertically.

Okay for scarfs
Good buy to hang your scarfs. The flimsy belt clips broke the first day. I didn't bother to return to the store because I would have had to remove all my scarfs & drive up there. lol

poor quality, broken =(
I owned this hanger for a month before one of the belt hooks broke off and one of the scarf hooks cracked. I taped it it up and was fine for a while. About 4 months later (present), I heard something fall in my closet and the whole plastic holder broke off the metal hook that holds the entire thing up! It looks like it was glued together. Worked great while I had but it's very cheap quality. I will try again and get one made entire of metal.
