Best Car Clothes Hanger for your Suits and Dresses
Whenever we’re off somewhere, we need to be more prepared than ever and if you enjoy looking smart or have an event to go too which requires some crease free clothing, look no further than a headrest mounted clothes and bag hanger for your car.
With these easily mountable car accessories worry no more when travelling to an event where you require to have crease free clothing. The last thing you want to have to do is fold or roll up your clothing items that you’ve just had dry cleaned and ironed before a big event. The wose thing you can do is pack these sorts of items away, especially if you are staying at a hotel and can’t access an iron or won’t even have time for it.
We have tested out 4 different clothes hangers that you fit to your headrests rails on your front seats of your car and they can hold a number of different things. If you want to keep your shopping off the seat, there are hooks which are capable of holding them up behind your seats. Three of them are made specifically for hanging your coat, suits and dresses off of the ground, out of your suitcase and keeping them crease free. They are really simple accessories which anyone can fit to their cars headrest for permanant or temporary use, depending on how often you need to drive around with your clothes hung up and keeping them looking good.
Be sure to carry on reading if you’re looking for a good clothes hanger for your car.
We have reviewed 4 clothing hangers, 3 of which you can put dresses, shirts, suit jackets on to, two of which will hold trousers as well and the fourth are just hangers, of which you can put your own clothes hangers on to them and other things like bags as they can carry quite a bit of weight.
They all connect to your headrest poles at the top of your front driver and passenger seats and they all connect in a different way.
The Best Suit, Dress & Clothes Hanger For Your Car is the Senders clothes rack. It’s universal and will fit nearly all types of car headrest poles. When not in use is easily the best looking hanger out of the four we reviewed. It can hold a whopping amount of weight because of how it connects and the materials it is made out of. So if you want to hang your suit on it, don’t worry, it won’t come off mid journey.
In a close 2nd are the Hangerworld and Sodial car clothing hangers. If your ceiling on your car is low and there isn’t much head space above your headrest, go with the Sodial, it hangs lower and in line with your headrest poles. If you want something that will hold a dress whilst you are driving then go for the Hangerworld. It is the highest off of the seat hanger we did a review on and is the best for longer clothing items and dresses.
If you don’t mind using clothes hangers in your car and maybe want to carry more than a couple of suits or dresses, we would recommend the Vanssi headrest clothes hooks which you could hang at least two clothes hangers on each hook. This way, you can have multiple items of clothing hung up behind each front car seat and held up by clothes hangers.
Review of VANSSI FHK1605 Car Clothes Headrest Hanger

The VANSSI FHK1605 Car Clothes Headrest Hanger is a clip that goes around the back of your passenger and drivers head rests. Measuring 9.8 cm in length these are small clips but perfectly suited to hanging clothing items and bags.
Made of a strong silicone rubber and coated with a hard plastic with inner grip that attaches firmly to the headrest poles that look like teeth.
To attach the hanger you will need to remove the headrest and attach to the pole and then put the headrest back. I’d say this is a bit of a faff considering some clothes car hangers allow you to push them straight onto the post. With having to take the posts off first however this does mean they stay consistently strong and does not stretch and wear over time. These little coat hangers can hold up to 8kg of clothing, coats or even a bag of small shopping.
With our car we are lucky enough to have standard round chrome posts that the clips attached well too, I am aware some posts are a lot thicker than this therefore the clips will not fit all car makes therefore this is worth bearing in mind. At a bargain value price it is not that much of a problem if it does not fit but your better getting it right the first time.
As these are just a “hook” rather than a “hanger” you aren’t going to be able to keep your best work shirt or wedding suit in pristine crease free condition as I found when hanging such an item, due to the length of it, so you will need to bring an additional clothes hanger to help with this which you can use on the hand rail above the windows or look at our other clothe hanging options we have reviewed.
The good thing is, with it being so small allows it to be stowed in the dashboard or in a car side pocket when not in use.Pros
- Help keep your car tidy
- Fits almost all cars
- Made of a strong silicone rubber
- Comes as a pack of two
- Easy to install
- Available for next day delivery with Amazon Prime
- Non adjustable means does not fit thicker headrest stalks
- Can hold up to 8kg
- Not going to keep clothes crease free
- A hook rather than a hanger
This is a simple designed, very handy little clothes hanger you can stow in the dashboard, buy at a bargain price then receive it next day delivery.

What is handy about this hanger as it does not require you to remove the head rest. It is very simple to install and just requires pushing the clips onto the head rest poles. The is some limit to the type of connection, the poles need to be rounded to attach and also need to be between 8-16mm in diameter, if not this particular hanger is not going to fit. They use tension to hold themselves in place, you just bend/pull them in towards each other to attach from the inside of the headrest poles.
I am not that impressed with the design for stability and strength, if you are interested in just holding some trousers and a shirt then this will suffice but only a few items can be carried by it.. With anything a little heavy this has the potential to come off at the clips. With carrying items such as light shirts, blazers, cardigans and dresses this hanger comes into its element as it can help hold clothing in place and crease free. But don’t expect it to carry bags or shopping as it hasn’t been designed for that.
It’s best strength is that its shape means you can carry a pair of trousers hung up over one of the rails and then a shirt and jacket over the top using the rounded sections to hold them in place, all crease free. If you have two, one on each headrest, you can carry yours and your partners clothing to an event or for a weekend away.Pros
- Easy to fit
- Good value for money
- Holds a coat very well, keeps its shape
- Holds trousers and a jacket on one hanger
- No need to remove the headrest
- Only fits headrests with round posts
- Only 1 supplied
- Cannot hold heavy items
The SODIAL clothes hanger is not the strongest car clothing hanging system however it is one of the easiest to set up with a mere attachment of two clips, ability to keep clothing in shape and good value for money price.

The Senders Car Clothes Headrest Hanger is quite something to look at. It is quite large at 49.5 cm wide, nearly half a metre long but saying that is still looks very stylish and classy attached to the passenger seat in the car.
To attach to the back of the headrest you need to press the small button on the support bar and push both end of the support bar inwards. This will make the bar short enough to fit between the two head rest poles. The first time I tried this I forgot to put the connection point facing towards the back seats, you need to make sure to do this. Then the internal springs of the bar to lock into place against the posts. Lastly clip the hanger on to the support bar and away you go.
This hanger can hold an impressive amount of weight, up to a wopping 22kg, so if you are someone who likes to put everything in their coat pockets this will really be the hanger for you. The hanger shapes allows you to hang coats, shirts and dresses in a tidy fashion that will not move or swing about while you drive. I was pleasantly surprised by how sturdy this clothes car hanger is, leaving our crease free clothing, crease free!
This is the kind of hanger shape you would find provided with a good quality full tailored suit, helping to keep the good quality in tact, very impressive and would also suit a high quality and good looking car. To remove the hanger you will need to press the button again and pull the hanger firmly up then release it, then press the button again to shorten the support bar and pull it out from its position.
Its size does make it a little hard to stow away, It doesn’t fit in the dashboard or under the seat and I personally did not like the idea of putting it in the boot especially with the bag or case for it as I felt it would get easily scratched or damaged. Therefore it is an item to be brought purposefully for carrying work suits, wedding suits for other particular journeys and to be connected constantly to your headrest.Pros
- Strong and robust
- Can hold up to 22 kg
- One year warranty included
- Looks stylish
- Can be used to hang clothes at home
- Perfect for carrying work or wedding suits
- Large and bulky
- Only one supplied
- Quite pricey
- Not easy to stow away
This is one very impressive clothes hanger with the ability to fit most cars and carry the most heaviest clothing items even shopping bags if needed. This hanger is provides a practical crease free solution for wedding or work clothes transportation whether on short or long journeys in a very stylish and sophisticated manner.
Reveiw of Hangerworld Car Clothes Headrest Hanger

The Hangerworld Car Clothes Headrest Hanger is quite an interesting design. It is very wide at 43.5 cm and also once fitted in the car reaches up about 35cm taking it unusually high for a clothing hanger. At both shoulder points of the chrome are two rubberised sleeves help to keep my clothing in place while driving. This is perfect for a dress or longer item of clothing. Another thing with it is that it has two horizontal points, which aren’t very big but could fit trousers on them if they are pegged to it underneath a jacket or shirt which would be put on top. I don’t think this was designed for this but it definitely works as a multi clothing hanger.
To attach the hanger to the posts you will need to simply push the soft rubberised clips around both posts. There is some room to it to fit different size post and head rest poles with the most suitable being a rounded chrome pole.
The hanger allows for clothes to be hung safely without creases or wrinkles. The set up is a little bouncy and does move up and down a little bit which I found some what annoying. This is a great travelling companion for a solo driver but if carrying passengers this would be quite inconvenient to the comfort of their travel due to its size and movement.
To be able to make use of this hanger you will need to have enough room above your head, therefore if your car has a low ceiling you will not be able to hang any clothing on to it making it unusable. The awkward shaped size of the hanger means it cannot be easily stored in its assembled shape however it can be stowed away if you take the chrome out of the rubber connector legs it can then go under the seat of the passenger seat conveniently.Pros
- High quality material
- Easy to fit
- Easy to clean
- Has non slip rubber attachment to reduce movement of clothing in transportation
- Suitable for nearly all car types
- Available for next day delivery with Amazon Prime
- Can be stowed away when dismantled
- Quite wide and tall
- Can sit too high in some cars that it touches the roof
This is a general all round good clothes hanger for your car. It is not the most sturdiest and will only suit high roomy vehicles but it is easy to fit and will transport your clothes crease free.
