That is funny. I had a collapse on my hat rack, where I had hung three jackets overnight. They are heavy, and you forget the torque they create.Actually, it is 15, or was 15. 8 of them are missing. I have about 40 coats overall.
I had a closet breakdown some time back, and the missing coats may be hidden under the coats that collapsed. Haven't had the energy to dig through everything yet.
