Warning – Hanging Shoe Holders

A couple of years ago, we purchased a hanging show holder for our closet.  It appeared to be a great way to consolidate our shoes using dead space behind the door.

However, the holder has a LARGE negative…it slowly pulls your door away from the jamb.  Check this out:

You can see the gap at the top between door and jamb is much larger than the gap at the bottom.  The door is very tight at the bottom.  Also, the door no longer closes – the latch bolt no longer is lined up with the door strike.  It is about 1/4″ off center:

Watch out!  You need a strong door jamb if you intend on purchasing one of these shoe holders.
