Hi, I don't understand why you want to remove the rod or the plastic cover. I use very thick plastic coat hangers in mine. Wire hangers and wooden hangers with wire hooks don't work well with the ribbed plastic rod. I don't like the thin plastic hangers either.

for future ref.......the metal hanger rod does not only go through the wood mounting brackets, it also goes through the wall....therefore there is no removing the rod as it must have been assembled b-4 placement in trailer....(i did infact cut the plastic ribbed coating to get results i wanted)....thanks to all

Hi, glad to hear you got done what you wanted. Can you post pictures and explain why you wanted the ribbed plastic removed. Like I said, mine works best with very thick plastic coat hangers.

Hi, that makes sense; do you have pictures of the shelves you installed?

the reason for removing the ribbed plastic was it is difficult to slide the hangers and clothes to one side for easy removing particular hanger and its clolthing....the groves hold the hanger and there is no sliding if that works for ya, i just didnt like it or think much of the idea. (i must be getting short on tolerance) thanks for all the interest and help.
