This is a fun idea I had and I think it has practical application. Use the space under clothes hangers (inside hung garments) for storage or safekeeping of valuables. I am thinking of a passport, credit cards, cash, keys, etcetera. Check it out…

I replicated the size and shape of some nice wooden hangers I have, so this is a good full-size hanger. Nice for hanging almost any kind of garment. But I made it folding so it can print in most printers with a 220mm x 220mm bed. And, folding means easier to put away or ship as well. The snap-in hook does not spin but you can put it into the hanger in either direction and remove and change it if needed.

Under the hanger is a print-in-place compliant set of prongs that hold the case in place. The prongs can be withdrawn by pulling up on the ring in the centre of the hanger. I chose this approach so that I can have one standard mounting system and add various sizes of containers to it as needed.

I have also made a simple folding hanger as well. I did this because some might like to have a plain hanger but also because it will help the “hiding” of the stash hanger – if you print multiple hangers the one stash hanger will not be so obviously different.


I have tried to make my main print settings visible on the Cura screenshot but in case they are difficult to read I have summarized them again here…

Material: I choose to use PETG for its durability and flexibility.

My Setup:
Nozzle = 0.4mm

My Settings:
Layer height = 0.2mm
Line width = 0.4mm
Wall count = 4 (1.6mm)
Infill = 40%
Ironing = ON (this is important to help separate areas that have been printed separately but on top of another area).

Designed to print without support.

Print Orientation: As shown in the screenshot(s).

Instructions and Assembly Notes

Just press the hook into the hanger and snap in the container. You are good to go.

Where to Get My STL Files

I am now posting all of my new designs on and plan to continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Some of my older designs may not have been migrated over yet so if they are not available on please check on Thingiverse.

Use, Licensing, Comments and Feedback

My primary distribution site for my design files is is, in my opinion, leading the way in promoting designers and competition amongst designers which in turn fuels the growth of high-quality 3d printable designs for the benefit of our entire community. However, as a result, some of my designs are only available for free for 1 week from when first posted, so please download them when you see a new file available that you are interested in. Also, please like and save to help me with the competitions.

I do not permit the use of my designs for commercial purposes (i.e. you can not sell my design(s) or products printed from my design(s)) without first acquiring a commercial license from me. On I offer membership accounts for access to all my design files as well as a membership for commercial licensing which allows subscribers to sell printed products using my designs.

I welcome comments and feedback as we as requests for customization of designs. I will do my best to accommodate those requests.
