Works as described!
We just recieved it and it works as described!
Great tie organizer
I have many ties and this rack organizes them all so I can easily see which ties I have and enables me to easily choose one to wear
I have a huge collection of ties, and havent had a proper way to keep them without wrinkling...enter the motorized tie rack from sharper image. Im glad I found out about this product. It saves space in my closet and keeps all my ties in one place and in a proper manner. Thanks Sharper Image!
Overall very happy
Having had two of these previously, this is the best model thusfar. Just wish it actually came with the accessory screw and belt hooks promised.
This is a really cool way to organize your closet. I can just easily pick which tie goes with my suit without having to search through my closet. I am very happy with this product! :)
A must have for every man with a mess of
I have the tie rack in the middle of my closet between my shirts and pants. It moves the ties around without a problem. Im very happy with this product.
Great buy for the fashion conscience man
I have an abundance of ties and bowties so this has helped me organize my necktie fashion!
Keeps ties clean and orderly. Directions werent included but easy to figure out. Easily extends the longevity of ones ties.
Husband loves it
Husband likes it
My husband loves!
My husband was so frustrated not being able to see all of his ties each morning as he got ready, so I got him this for Christmas. He put it up in a matter of minutes and it works just like it says it will. The ties hang nicely and there is a light that makes sure you can really see them as they spin around. He isnt normally one for gadgets like this and he was really excited to get it and very pleased about how it is working!
This is a gift for my son-in-law who has many ties and needed a way to hang and provide easy access, hoping it will do the job!
The light should have its own switch.
I use the product everyday.
A great gift for my boyfriend who needed desperate help organizing his ties! I was surprised at how many ties this rack could hold - and the belt holder was a nice addition. The light is very useful in a dark closet. Will definitely recommend to others!
I love ties!
Something small with a big purpose!
Ive needed something like this to hold all my ties, without taking a bunch of room in my closet and this is easy to set up and small!. This item definitely expands the life of my ties, rather then them being shoved into a box/bag.
Appears to be good product. This is 4th motorized te rack my husband has had in about 25 years. He uses it daily. Hope it lasts. This is first one from sharper image.
It is used daily! Helps me keep all of my ties organized and easy to see! The rotating motor and light are a major bonus!
It looked great and ran when we tested it but the top part was cracked so we had to return it.
My husband loved it!
The tech guy really loved this gadget
This product was purchased for a tech guy with every electronic gadget available. He fell in love with it. The only bad note was the left control turned the carousel right and the right control turned the carousel left. If the tie rack is full it is hard to access the belts in the middle of the rack so we included belts on the carousel hooks. Over all this is a great product and I would strongly recomend purchasing it.
Not a fan...
Couldnt handle weight of ties. Motor literally died before last tie was placed on rack. Returned within a day of arrival.
My Husband is not happy
I bought it for my husband for his birthday. He is not happy with it. It moves too slow!!!!
GREAT TIE RACK
I did have to modify my closet by wiring in a 1 3/8" dowel since my closet had no bar. Once done the rack works great. Thanks.
Perfect for a young professional
Although I am far from filling this tie rack, I know one day Ill truly appreciate this buy. For anyone who wears suits for work or appreciates a wide selection of ties, this product is for you.
Excellent, just what I needed
Ive got a ton of ties. Recently moved and couldnt use the tie racks from my old house on the new closet shelving (old house had wire shelves). This rack was amazingly easy to install and get loaded. Cant speak to durability yet. This had the largest capacity of any I could fine. Going larger (>100 ties) would suit me fine.
Use it daily, Just got it so cant give durability opinion.
If an alternate method of hanging rack also on inside of closet door existed, it would be more versatile for tight closets.
The 72 hooks are great as accommodates enough ties.
Belt hooks are useless when surrounded by ties as the belts can not be accessed easily.
This is a great gift. It can hold many ties and its a go from me.
I love this product
Great gift for the price. Save me money, time and space
motorized tie rack
It Works Flawlessly.
Moves too slow - takes too long.
Moves too slow
Fits old style closet-not wire combos
Gave as a gift, the closet was a wire combination so the tie rack had to be rigged to stay in place. Works well and is compact.
My husband loved it as a fathers day present. He can place so many ties on this rack and is so convenient. Not bulky and not hard to install. He has many belts also and has mentioned he wished it was also a little more belt friendly (all in one); but it is a tie rack not a belt rack.
Purchased this for my husband who thinks its great and so do I. Keeps his ties neat and organized. He was truly happy to receive this gift.
If you have a lot of ties in your closet this would be the perfect gift for your loved ones.
Fixed my clutter of ties
I use this to hang about 60 ties I have all over the place. This organizer is great because it allowed me to place them all in order. Best thing I have used so far for ties.
Happy Tie Wearer
Choosing the right tie made easy!
Lighted, rotating tie rack makes for easy viewing and choosing of the correct tie while mounted and taking up minimal space on closet pole.
Product performs better then expected.
Product performed better then expected. Would highly recommend.
Motorized Tie Rack
It was amazing how difficult it was to find a tie rack in a lot of stores. It just wasnt available. When all my belts and ties were laying in my closet it became very annoying. So the tie rack from Sharper Image really saved the day.
Not too shabby
My father in law loved his gift.
Wish Id found it long ago
Makes tie storage super easy. A little difficult to install perfectly level, but that doesnt seem to hinder operation at all.
Motorized Tie Rack
I brought this product for my husband and he loves it, When you have as many ties as he does it came in handy. love it
Dads Fathers Day gift - he LOVES it!
Sharper Image was extremely easy to work with when ordering online. Wonderful service and great product!
Good but not GREAT
Kind of ridiculous that the batteries werent included with a $50 tie rack. The rack seems to work great, but the hooks seem a little flimsy and overall the design felt a little cheap. Either way, Ive never been able to find another one of its kind.
Decent Replacement for the Original
My original Sharper Image motorized tie rack, the best Id ever had, was failing so I had to find a replacement. I needed one that would hold the same large number of ties as the original. Fortunately, Sharper Image does sell a replacement that fit the bill. I couldnt find any others that would hold as many ties. The good news: The ties rotate faster and more quietly than the original. The bad news: No mounting hardware for wire racks and slightly flimsier tie and belt holders. Oddly, there are designated areas where you can drill holes to use the mounting hardware from the original tie rack. Unfortunately, the rounded surface of the device and the imbalance due to the front positioned battery pack cause the rack to tilt down, and the tilt varies unless you space your ties very evenly... I suspect that this is why the mounting hardware isnt included. Fortunately, its easy to place a spacer (I used an empty C battery two-pack cardboard box) between the back of the tie rack and the overlying wire rack to ke
This was a replacement of one that was about 10 years old. It is a nice design and fits well, but it moves around very slow. Other than that it is a very good product.
Great way to store belts and ties!
A Minor Disappointment
I have purchased three motorized tie racks from Sharper Image in the past twenty years. The second was a major improvement from the first. A stability extension section kept the device firmly in place and the tie movement was fast, sharp and easily reversed. The latest version of the rack, however, has taken a step back in quality. There is no extension section and the movement is slow and clunky.
This is a great idea and gift!
My son loves it. It is a great way to keep the ties organized and compact.
motorized tie rack is great
Holds more ties than the one it replaced. Very good quality.
Had the old model that finally stopped working. This model is better, expensive though. LED lighting is nice, one of the only motorized 72 tie racks available. Turns a bit fast but when full of ties, the speed is just right. One big negative is that the rack seems only to work with rods. I will be updating my closet soon and worried that this rack will not work with newer wire closet shelving like the old model did.
Rotating Tie Rack
Ive bought others that were less expensive but it turns out that the others cant compare. Ive seen others that were more expensive and they werent nearly as sufficient.
Very simple to use.
Just as advertised!
The tie rack has plenty of space to accommodate all of my ties.
It is quiet and operates smoothly.
More uses than just ties.
After seeing this tie rack at a friends house my wife thought it could work as a necklace holder. It works very well in this capacity. She did have to put some of her heavier necklaces on the hangers located on the underside, so not a problem.
If the designers of this product read this and design an actual necklace rack put a stonger motor on this unit and it would handle the heavier items. If I had any ties this unit would be my first choice.
One last item the installation onto the close pole was very easy, it fit with no hassles.
After installation its very good
This performs exactly as I wanted but its too new to rate the battery life. The only disappointment is the difficulty in installing it on the closet hanging system I have which is a narrow diameter rod. That took a bit of re-engineering.
Very easy to put together. Easy directi
Home use. Easy to assemble.
Tie Rack a WINNER
If you own over 100+ ties, then these are the only way to keep yourself organized, find the tie you are looking for and store them without wrinkles or creases.
GREAT. Tie Rack..
Best Tie rack that I have found. No complaints.
Fit like a glove
Worked very smoothly put strained once it was completely full. In hind sight I could probably use two.
The Sharper Image Tie Rack requires a round clothes rod for installation.
Also, requires a wedge of some type to balance tie rack once installed
on the rod. The motorized carousel moves slowly. However, holds several
great gift idea!
I got this as a Christmas gift for my fiance, I know he is going to love using it!
Great but could use some finessing
The tie rack is great in theory, it just doesnt screw on very tight and therefore sits lob sided.
see above; nothing more to add
Definitely the tie rack you want...
I purchased two other tie racks and subsequently had to return them. They were loud when operating. One could not even handle the number of ties I have (despite not even using every hook). This one took all of my ties and bow ties without any issues. Definitely worth it, and agree with all of the other reviews.
Needs a bit more durable design
I ordered this as a replacement for a previous version of the Sharper Image motorized tie rack. This version, while similar, lacks a few features of the older version, which are much missed. The old model, which is remarkably similar, had an adapter to support oval clothes bars, which this one didnt come with. Luckily, I was able to use the old one with the new model. Additionally, the old version has an adjustable extension on the back, to provide support against the wall, which this version lacks, and the new design didnt allow me to use that piece with the new model. This is the third of these that Ive owned, as over time, the track ends up cracking and breaking. Spending a few more dollars on the design, so that the track mechanism is made more durable would be nice. Personally, Id never have bought a second one, but my wife uses it for her bras, and really likes it, so I keep replacing them. Its a shame that there are no replacement parts available, as it could easily be fixed, but flimy de
Easy to install. Holds lots of ties and belts.
Has reduced clutter in my closet.
This one works
I have had three and this seems to be the only one that can take the weight if you load it up. I only gave it four stars because I just got it and do not know how long it will last, but it seems more powerful therefor less strain on the motor with a full load.
Holds plenty of ties. Very quiet. However, unlike earlier versions it does not include adapters for installation on wire shelving (but would easily install on solid wooden rods). I salvaged the hardware from my old broken one and drilled a couple of holes in the mounting bracket and it worked great.
I would buy this product again
Easy to install no need to make holes in drywall. Enough hooks to hang all my ties.
Motorized Tie Rack
This is the second time we have purchased a motorized tie rack. We purchased the previous one about 10 years ago and it is still working fine. Meanwhile my husband has many more ties then he had ten years ago, so a new one was in order. They fit fine together on a pole in his closet.
Saved by the Image
I use this product five days a week. It has to be durable and reliable. So far, it is. Unfortunately, SI doesnt provide a place to critique the delivery and so Ill do it here! My product arrived without all the parts. I called and received them in the mail a few days later. Quite frankly, the only reason I didnt send the product back (because it was extremely inconvenient to have the old one down and the new one inoperable/unhangable) was because of the service rep"s assurance I would receive the missing parts in a timely fashion and because of SI"s "image"/reputation. Thats why I titled this "Saved by the Image"!
Fast tie rack!
Its fast and quiet.
If youre a tie guy, this rack for you!
I use this everyday to select from my large number of ties. When you have over 100 ties, this definitely helps to organize them and provides a way to view each one. Luckily my closet bar is circular because its made to be circular. If you have a rare square closet bar then you will have to find a work around somehow but otherwise this product is GREAT! Very happy.
Turned a beast into a beauty
My husbands closet was immaculately organized except for his ties which were a mess. With the tie organizer his closet is perfectly organized. It is easy to use, and allows him to select his tie within seconds, instead of fumbling for minutes trying to find the perfect tie for the day.
Motorized Tie Rack
I really like the motorized tie rack. It helps to keep my ties all organized. Also, the light is wonderful. When the closet light is off, I can just turn on the light on the motorized rack and can see where to find my tie in minutes. Love this feature.
Dont be cheap. Buy the good one
Bought a very cheap replica on Amazon. It was about 1/3 the price, so I figured try that first. Mistake. The knockoff was flimsy, motor was under powered and loud. Just cheap. I sent it back and got this one. It works great. Motor is smooth and fast (almost too fast). Very sturdy.
Easy to istall
This is a very easy unit to install. Just have to be sure that there is enough clearance on top of the bar on which the unit is to be installed to screw the unit tight. Thus if it is a rod that is under a shelf, the clearance between the rod and shelf is sometimes hard to work on to get the unit placed fixed.
I would buy this again for another perso
great Christmas gift
The mount is only made for a full-sized round closet bar, not the wire rack type. So although it does still work, you wont be able to secure it as it was intended. Also, the ties move really slowly, it takes about a minute to get a full rotation.
Practical and Useful
I purchased one as a gift and another for my husband. Its been very practical and allows for him to see all his ties in a much more organized fashion. However, I have some concerns on durability. Nothing has broken but am nervous that it may happen soon. Based on the frequency he uses the rack.
Otherwise it was a great buy!!!
Motor is Slow
I like this tie rack, as it fits well in the closet and displays the ties well, but the motor is way too slow to move the ties around. I had a previous version of this tie rack, and the motor was much more powerful.
Added a great touch to my closet!
The new motorized tie rack just arrived--it was an easy order with a good tracking process. It was very easy to install and appears to be a quality product. The new tie rack replaces an old wooden peg rack so this is quite a nice change. The new rack looks really nice in my closet, it is easy to operate and actually held all of my ties neatly with room for a few more. My belts also hang nicely out of the way but easy to get to. Very pleased with my purchase!!
My husband loves it (gift for Fathers Day). We have slim closet hanging rods though so we had to get creative to make it fit tight to the rod. Otherwise super. Its hard to find one with so many tie hooks.
Ok, but could be even better.
Would like to see additional mounting hardware for smaller (metal) poles. Also difficult to remove if mounted at extreme right end of a reach-in closet i.e., bracket slides off to right side only.
Cool Tie Rack
Love the lights and motorized feature.
Motorized Tie Rack...wonderful gift idea
My husband wears a tie at least five times per week, and this product makes it quite easy to see exactly which ties are available to be worn. This rack also holds belts in addition to a large quantity of ties. Now our sons think they need one too!
Great gift idea
Purchased this tie rack as a gift for my husband. Hed had the original version of this tie rack for years and it recently broke. This new version is sleek and nice looking, but its slightly bulkier than the original, so be sure to check the distance between your closet rod and any shelf thats above it. It makes a nice gift for any men you know who still wear ties and need to organize them.
Motorized Tie Rack
I gave this to my husband to get his ties off all the clothes hangers!! He loves it and it puts all his ties where he can see and get to them easily!
Good, not great
It does what it is supposed to--holds many ties.
This Product is Awesome
I have a lot of ties and this item really helps save room in my closest!
Motorized Tie Rack
My husband wears ties every day, and his other tierack finally bit the dust. This one works great and its already full of ties. Thanks for an excellent product.
I celebrated two birthdays waiting for the tie rack to complete one revolution. It is much slower than previous models.
Now is easier to choose a tie
Absolutly convenient .It is easier to select a tie on Monday morning !
This is a terrific organizer. I went for years with ties hanging on wooden hangers -- a poor solution that was never satisfactory. I bought two of these and they have solved the problem perfectly. The only issue I have had was installation. The custom closet rods are a little big for the installation clamp, and I had to force them. Once installed, they are now completely secure. I would strongly recommend this product to any man who wears ties.
Works well once you get to stay
Very Good device
Mounting was a challenge although eventually got it done.
Dont tie me down
This helped to give my tie collection the organization I needed.
A tie rack that works and looks good
I have my rack loaded with 55 ties and even without motion the rack keeps everything nice and neat. I did not use the extra belt holders because it seemed to stop the rotation of the ties... But nonetheless it is a nice compact unit and my ties are easy to find and manage. I hope the motor lasts. Even if it doesnt it makes my closet more organized.
Best version of a motorized tie rack that I have ever used. Pretty bulky on the top and wouldnt fit on my closet rod, because it wouldnt fit between the rod and shelf above. Works great after I lowered the rod.
Fits all of your ties
If your wardrobe demands that you have many ties, this is the best system for your closet. Order them by color, style, or accasion. It holds up to 72 ties so you have room to spare for your next purchase. LED light is key to longer battery life. Smart design and attractive in your closet.
SO GLAD WE FOUND THIS TIE RACK!
Purchasing this tie rack was our third attempt to hang my husbands neckwear in a closet with no available space for using a more conventional product. He had been storing his ties folded flat in his armoire because there seemed to be no solution. This product works exactly as it should, and although it is pricey, we are so happy to have found it, so he can get to his ties in the morning without an avalanche of silk. He has hung them in order by color which looks nice and helps with selection. Also, unlike other products which claim a large number of ties can be accommodated, this rack has exactly the number of tie clips advertised, and the ties hang without crushing each other. Thank you, Sharper Image.
Great Addition to Any Mans Closet!
Bought this item about a week ago and I already cant imagine life without it. Makes it so much easier keeping ties and belts organized and all in one spot in the closet. Incredibly easy to put together and install and looks really sleek.
Great Product, Fast Shipping
The motorized tie rack is super easy to use and install. We received the package within 2 days, in great condition. Very satisfied with this purchase.
Good value. It was a gift for my husband. He loves it!
Motorized Tie Rack received for XMas
Love it! May buy another one if I get more than 64 ties in the future.
Great design and saves lots of space!
This really helped me organize my closet.
Hangs easy, works right away.
I am pleased with the purchase
This is my second sharper image tie rack, the last one lasted almost 10 years! It is very quiet looks great and does its job.
Excellent product, design and very useful. I would recommend changes in the scrolls to something more friendly and easier to connect firmly.
solution to a large problem since I have so many ties
Useful and saves me time getting and putting away my ties
Uses batteries only!
I bought a similar one of these for my husband from Sharper Image about 15 years ago and its served him well but the rubber belt finally gave way. So, I ordered him a new one only to find that this model is battery only - the old one had an electric adapter. I returned it as the batteries dont last very long with daily use.
Its a nice design but it fell when I was installing it & now makes a weird noise & moves kind of slow. Just seemed a little cheaply made - but reasonable for the price paid.
A Second Mototrised Tie Rack
I have a large number of ties and I like to have them organised as to colour and style. I have had a motorised tie rack (Sharper Image) for some time and my tie collection grew to the point that I needed another. Why turn away from a good thing. I am delighted with the purchase and the design is very smart in my cupboard
It does what it says it will do
i like that it rotates to see the selection of ties, i also like the amount of ties it holds. it suits me just fine.
Great addition to the closet.
This can hold a LOT of ties that can be viewed very fast. It took a little longer to get started since the instructions were not very good (need to twist the knob that holds it to the closet bar harder than I expected; illustration of how to open the batter case not clear). The lights aere good and it has worked flawlessly. I took the advice of another not to use the belt holders so that the ties dont get cought on them when they move around . . .
My boyfriend loves this!
very useful but needs tweaking!
Im glad you asked. I wrote to you a few years ago, pointing out a problem with the tie rack. Actually there were two problems: ties sometimes snag, on the belt hooks; and the retaining hooks need to be a little bit bigger to prevent ties falling off the edge. Ive now bought another one, and am sorry to see that you havent acted on the latter point. The belt hooks, however, are much small now, and that should help eliminate snagging.
Really helps to get organized!
In my husbands closet to organize his tie collection!
Ok but not great
Rack mounts easily and is stable even when holding a full load of ties. Motor is slow despite changing out batteries.
NEW APT WITH LIMOTED SPACE
Great Tie Rack!
This tie rack lets me easily organize all of my ties, in an efficient and quick manner. It does exactly what you would hope it would do, which makes it a great product.
This was a fathers day gift for my husband and he likes it very much. I cant really tell you any more because I dont use it.
I had one of these for years but it was recently damaged. I bought this one to replace the old one. My only complaint is that the motor revolves the ties at an extremely low speed. I wish it revolved a little faster.
Works great and much improved
I purchased this to replace my prior Sharper Image model after my kid got ahold of it. This one has a higher capacity and is slimmer, and I like the fact there there is a stop button (the prior version required you to press the opposite direction to reverse or stop). It is only slightly underpowered, but granted I have about 10 extra ties on it so I would expect that. It is a bit longer than the prior model, but I will take that for being less wide.
I also like the fact that the battery compartment is a separate front piece that slides off. The old one was under the tie rack so if you keep it on the lower rack in your closet like I do it was a pain.
Perfect Tie Rack
Much better than the last one I had. Better built
Great Tie Rack
The tie rack is very nice and holds a lot of ties. I like how the it moves the ties around slow enough so you can see which one you want. It even has a little light that helps you see.
Thank you for this handy solution to my husbands tie collection. He can now see all his ties at the push of a button - and I dont have to see the same dreaded striped tie all the time. And it gives ME more room in the closet!
great space saver
The tie rack is a great space saver and it is very helpful in keeping organized. So far so good.
This was the perfect gift for my son in law this year. He is neat freak and loves having everything in its place. Now his ties will be well taken care of.
easy to install and use
Not as good as Sharper Image previous ti
I own the previous Sharper Image tie rack product which was much better than this latest version. The main problem is most closet companies use hanging bars that are metal, in an oblong shape and this latest tie rack does not attach to that type of bar and contains no kit to make the attachment. It is very slow and pressing right turns the rack left etc. Just seems like a product not well thought through.
Have had an earlier version for over 10 years. Knew exactly what to replace it with when it finally wore out. Husband LOVES this.
motorized tie rack
I use it for almost all my ties and I wear ties every work day.
After more than 20 years my original Sharper Image tie rack died. This new model is quieter, has bright LED lights that should last much longer than the old incandescent bulb, has belt loops, and holds more ties. This is a great rack!
When this product is full it moves very, very slowly.
Its fine & serves its purpose of holding ties but its really quite average. Have had several other very similar models & all about the same. This product is not meant to mount to wire racks/wire closet organizers even though some say that it does.
Awesome gift for an awesome guy
Bought this as a gift for him, also as a space saver in his closet. Makes keeping things organized in out y house so much easier.
I would buy this product again
Its a bit bulky but other than that its great!
This was a replacement for a much older SI tie rack that had finally needed replacing. I thought the price was very fair and the installation was a breeze. it has a significant amount of capacity and the controls are easy to use. My only comment on how to improve the design is to offer a kit that would allow the tie rack to be mounted to the very common wire shelving that is installed in most closets today. It would seem very simple to add hangers off of the pole fastener to mount to the wire. I would recommend this product to all the men out there with a life time supply of ties.
Why didnt I get this sooner!
The ability to organize my ties is great. I will probably need another rack soon, and I will definitely be getting one more of these, or a newer model if available. The down side is when its full, it is difficult to get to the belts in the middle. The belt hooks should also be a little lower. The hook is just a little too close to the bottom of the rack. Otherwise, if you have ties, like I have ties, This is The Rack to get!.
Real nice looking and awesome gift idea
This was a Christmas gift for my husband, I love it and I am sure he will too. He loves things like this!
This product was very easy to use. All my ties are in order and it doesnt take up much space in the closet. If you use it to hand belts, you may have to leave room between ties so that you can reach in to unhook them. Its still the best motorized tie rack that I have found!
Works great, improvement over past racks
I owned my previous battery operated tie rack for over 10 years. When it recently broke, I was hoping to replace it with something similar and hopefully a little easier to install.
The product was easy to install (I had it installed in under 5 minutes.) The led light is a nice touch, and it holds all of my ties (approx. 50) and still has a lot of room for more.
My only caution would be that the rack may move a little too fast and sometimes i have to try to back it up to get back to my tie. I think there is a little learning curve on that as it moves about twice as fast as my old rack.
In sum, I am very happy with the purchase and would definitely recommend it to others. You get what you pay for, and I would spend the extra money if you have a large tie collection and use ties daily.
Attractive but a little slow
I have nearly 100 ties, and with two racks I was able to group them by color content. Hopefully these racks will last longer than the manual pull-out racks that failled in a few years of use.
Nice Tie Rack
This is a nice tie rack. I expected it would move the ties more easily and quickly around for selection. A bit disappointed in that. I also expected it to feel a bit more sturdy coming from Sharper Image. Otherwise, it does hold the ties and belt - and it does rotate the ties for selection.
motorized tie rack
very easy to use.i am very organized now
Great Gift For A Man With Style!
This was an early Fathers Day gift to the man in my life and he absolutely LOVED it! He is trying to grow his tie collection and this was great to help with that process. He is also able to hang belts on it as well making this a 2 for 1 gift. Its a great gift!
Great Tie Organizer
I have a huge tie collection and needed a compact, easy to use system for storage. This product meets all my needs perfectly!
Great idea.Cheaply Made
Great idea however it is very cheaply made. Better if it had some metal in it to stabilize it. Mostly plastic. For 1/2 the price it would be worth it but [$] was steep considering the quality.
easy to install
THis unit works and is easy to put up, but it is slow and does not have an automatic turn off light (like the one we got about 10 yrs ago which finally conked out). It will do.
I bought this for my husband. We love it. It was easy to design. We originally thought it was designed for a single rod closet but found that it worked for our design as well.
So far, so good
I purchased this tie rack to make selecting my ties easier. My previous rack was mounted on the wall at the back of my closet causing me to have to push and separate the cloths inorder to select a tie. Most of the ties would slide off the pegs with the slightest touch. Now with the motorized, lighted rack the ties stay on the pegs and I made a plaque with a short pole and mounted it on the wall outside the closet and it works great.
Best Tie Rack I Ever Owned!
I love the design and speed of this motorized tie rack. Ive owned 2 before this and they were always too slow. There is plenty f room for ties and 6 belts. Id recommend this tie rack to anyone.
Motorized Tie Rack
This was a gift to replace one that did not last.
The product worked as described. I only wish it came with batteries.
Terrific tie rack
My husband is a tie aficionado. He has two of these tie racks in his closet. They are daily tools that are critical. Every aspect of these tie racks are perfectly functional. Bravo!
I have over 70 ties and wear them frequently. I have had many tie racks before and they were all cheaply made. This product is worthy of Sharper Image and is for someone who needs an excellent tie rack. I even bought one for my son. Great product!
Make sure you have a thick enough bar, the setup doesnt tighten enough to be tight on my closet bar so the tie rack will dip to either the front or back depending on which side has more. I managed to make my bar a little thicker, but it still slightly dips. Other than that it works great. Happy with the purchase
Strong & Stable
Gift ot husband..More then generous in strength & quantity of ties/belts you can hang on tie rack
Great Tie Rack
It was a great gift. The recipient loved it
I bought it for my husband and he likes it.
Very Nice Package
Very attractive & doesnt take much space. A great addition to any wardrobe.
Motorized Tie Rack
Keep all my ties organized is important and this rack is a good way to keep 60+ ties together and easy to get to.
Was exactly what it said it was. Love it.
Motorized Tie Rack
Great for making more space available in your closet.
great gift for men
the light is really great in closet area
Ties I Didnt Know I Had!!
Love this!! I can finally see all my ties!! They are nicely hanging and easily accessible when getting ready in the morning. Before, I had some hanging on top of others and it seems that I never saw the ties on the bottom, so this was like getting new ties with my gift of the tie rack.
I got this as a gift for my boyfriend. He LOVES it! Before, he used those hangers that held several ties, but he couldnt see what all he owned. The ability to rotate the rack to see what all is there is invaluable because so many ties were going unworn just because he forgot they were there. Its nice to categorize them by color be able to save so much time just rotating to the appropriate color section.
Great Tire Rack
I use this product for all my ties.
better than advertised
organizes dress,bollo ties and belts so they are easy to see and access
Would purchase again.
Nice produce - will it last?
I ordered the tie rack for my son. He received it on time. The instructions were not really that clear to understand. His question is how long will it last, how long will the batteries last before they need to be replaced. Other than that, he likes it better than stuffing his ties in a draw or on a coat hook.
We asked the ties, and they love it!
Our ties hang straight, and their self esteem and confidence have grown exponentially. As a parent, we could not be happier. Sometimes the tie rack is spinning before we awake, but we know which wild tie has started the spin. Ties will be ties. By this product and look proud in your ties, they are.
a better mousetrap for tie wearers
Handy, compact place to keep ties and easy to use
Easy to install!
Holds all of my ties and was easy to install in my closet. Was able to install without removing any clothes off the hanger bar. Can replace batteries without removing the entire unit. Got it as a gift a week ago and really enjoy it! Not sure I would have paid $60 though.
My old motorized tie rack bit the dust and after looking at possible replacements at local stores I was unable to find one that would serve my needs. I then went to Sharper Image and saw this one and read the reviews. Everyone was correct! It is so much better than the one I replaced. It holds more ties, the controls are effortless, the light brighter. Installation was a literally a snap. Hope it lasts a long time.
Amazing for rack!
We use it every day to pick out my bfs tie for work and we love its classy design and usefulness.
Fabulous and Fun!
Gift for my husband after redoing our large walk in closet. He had fun using it and it helps him select his own ties since they are easy to see and compare to his clothes.
"Sylish Tie Organization!"
I have many ties and have seen different Tie Racks for years but this Tie Rack takes the cake. It is sleek, quiet and extremely useful for the todays suit and tie aficionado and collector. If you are a man who takes pride in your tie collection the Sharper Image Tie Rack is something you will be glad to utilize and display your collection. This motorized product is battery operated and highlights the tie displayed with a light for darker closets.
Easy to install and very practical
This motorized tie rack solved the issue of tie storage and accessibility for my husband. It was very easy to set up and install. Power automatically goes off after 20 seconds so no worries about batteries being used up should you forget to switch off.
Sturday and holds much!
Easily installed yesterday and looks great. However, fully loaded, it runs very slow. As long as it hold up, it is the best on the market.
It is just what I was looking for what more can I say it works great and I use it every day. It is easy to use too :-)
My dad loved it
My dad loooooved this product, he had one previously but it didnt compare to this one at all. He was so excited he opened it and dropped everything to run to his closet and start organizing his ties, he sent me a video of what it looked like and how he had it set up, it was hilarious..Im glad I got it for him. I have no issues w the product at all, Thanks!
Great for the man with lots of ties!
Its compact, easy to use and holds lots of ties.
Just What I was looking for
Purchased to replace the same item after belt wore out. Had used it for years. Easy to install, works great in closet!
A neat organizer
Neat idea to organize lots of ties and belts. Takes a fraction of the earlier space.
Cons - How to I install it so that it looks straight. Maynot fit all closets.
Very nice, but very large
I purchased the product to organize the mess of ties in my closet, unfortunately the product was so big and bulky that it did not fit in my closet. Maybe someone with a much larger walk in would find this useful, but it took up more room than it saved for me.
I Like it, Great price Great product
Holds all the ties you will ever need
It is a little slow but no biggie
I like it, wanted one for years didnt
get it for Christmas so bought it myself
Merry Christmas to me
Organized at its Best
Great way to keep Ties organized and easy to find at a glance
Tie it Up!
I use it for my ties. It helps me organize my ties. It doesnt hold more
Great well built tie rack!
Product is as good as advertised. It moves slow but is effective in holding and rotating a big selection of ties.
This rack really makes it easy to keep my ties organized. Best tie organizer I have every tried. First one arrived defective but the replacement is great. I just hope it holds up over time because I really love it.
Does the job but too slow motor
I have had other motorized tie racks and this one is very similar. Only problem is the motor is sooo slow.
Very Easy Installation...
Very easy installation and easy to use. Make sure you buy 4 C batteries ahead of time if its a gift though.
just what he needed
I am just happy that my man has a place for his ties!
A CLOSET MUST HAVE!!!
THIS PRODUCT IS EASY TO INSTALL & EVEN EASIER TO USE!!!
IF YOU LOVE ORGANIZATION THIS IS FOR YOU!!!
ONLY NEGATIVE IS THAT I WISH IT HELD MORE!!!
Great gift from my wife!!!!!!!
Now able to pick out my tie without having to chase them all over my closet.
Why Did We Wait So Long? Fabulous!
Okay, maybe men arent wearing ties much anymore...but my husband does; he travels internationally to countries that conduct business in suits and ties. After 25 years, he has quite the tie collection. But the way they were hung made it hard to find just the right tie. Or, the ties would drop to the floor at the slightest movement, sometimes all of them would be on the floor for no apparent reason! He kept asking me to find a better way to hang his ties and this is it! I found it at Sharper Image and installed it MYSELF as a birthday surprise. He was so delighted when he walked in and saw it! Maybe you think it is an expensive way to hang ties, but we think it is a timesaver and frustration-reducer and well worth the price. A totally way cool purchase. Thanks Sharper Image.
Glad I bought this product
Easy assembly. I like its sleak design.
motorized tie rack
I wanted a tie rack that I could hang on a wire shelf in my closet. when I inquired about the possibility of hanging the rack on my wire shelving I was informed that they did not have the attachments to do that.I ordered the rack anyway because I had an existing tie rack that I purchased from Sharper Image years ago and it included the attachments for the wire shelving.When I received my tie rack I took the cover off and found the two stampings under the cover for where the attachments would work from my old tie rack.I drilled 2 holes,used my existing attachment brackets and wouldnt you know I now have a tie rack that works on my wire shelving.Sharper Image should take a close look at this product and offer the attachments so that you can use this product with wire shelving as well as a rod.
Easy to install, works well.
I organize my ties by color and this system makes it easy to choose a time. A little slow, but arent we all in a hurry to get dressed?
This is my second tie rack from sharper image. My last one lasted over ten years. Great product highly recommend
Rotating tie rack.
It holds lots of ties.
Third Motorized Tie Rack Purchase
This is my third purchase of a motorized tie rack over the years. This model works well with a round clothes rod but it seemed to be missing pieces for usage with wire shelving. I had to drill holes in the top and use parts from previously purchased tie racks.
This tie rack fits on the old rods!
We purchased a different bramd tie rack, but it wouldnt fit our older-style wooden closet rod. Only this Sharper Image Tie rack fits. The batteries are easy to change out as they are in the front of the unit.
The individual tie holders are a little narrow.....I hope really wide ties never come back in fashion!
I read about this product and was excited to order it, especially since I had just returned one from a different maker that was very disappointing.
Good quality and sturdy on closet bar.
Good quality and sturdy on closet bar.
This tie rack moves fast compared to my last one.
Best tie rack I have had to date. Accommodates a large number of ties. Makes organization and selection much easier.
I would buy this product
I purchased this product as a gift for someone else. The tie rack is very bulky. I did end up returning it. However, the tie rack seemed very durable, unique, and can keep a bunch of ties very neat and organized.
The belt that holds the ties broke, rendering the entire thing useless. I think it would be relatively easy to replace it, if only I could find a new belt. But, alas, I guess youd have to buy an entire new unit -- I dont think so. Ill go back to the old reliable pins on a board type of tie rack -- no batteries required.
After receiving a lesser version Sharper Image tie rack from Bed Bath and Beyond that broke almost instantly, I researched similar products online. I liked the convenience and settled on this item after reading the reviews. This model is significantly more durable, although when filled with ties it does slow significantly. Overall, a very decent product and deal.
Motorized tie rack
Greatest thing since sliced bread!!
I surprised my husband for our anniversary with California Closets and decided to buy this instead of going with their tie rack. He loved it! I couldnt believe he had more ties than it holds so now well have to buy another one! All his friends gravitated to it when they saw his closet! A great buy!!
My husbands ties are all organized and with a touch of a button, he gets to see his choices.
Works as Promised
Purchased for my personal use. Easy to install. Battery location a little tricky. Superb for finally organizing my ties and belts, rather than hanging them on a metal hanger or over the closet pole. Compact so it frees up additional space on the closet pole for other items.
It helps a lot to organize the tie and belts. Happy to buy this good stuff.
I bought this for my husband and he loves it. No complaints here.
Love this item
I love this item. My ties are so neat and easy to browse thru before work!!!
VERY GOOD VALUE.
I thought it was made of metal but it is made with plastic not very good for the money it should be constructed out of better materials.
Easy as 1-2-3
First of all, I own two and both serve me well. Easy to install, designs fits most closets. Lights are bright and it holds a lot of ties (because I have a lot). The carousel is sturdy with extra hangers; however, you must learn the controls, rotator moves very fast. Ive owned another brand before but it broke but this one is definitely better.
The final missing piece to my wardrobe!
It was the final component I was missing to store my belts and ties! No more belts and ties all over the floor and drooped over chairs. Now I can store everything in one compact location. It makes finding a belt or tie in the morning a PIECE OF CAKE. The controls and setup are ridiculously easy. The rotating tie clips and the lights make it the perfect device! So glad I found it.
Great product! Its balanced prefectly.
Third product like this. This one is the absolute best yet! Easy slide on top. No removing closet bar or top screws. Batteries can be changed easily. Holds far more ties then others.
Only thing I do not like is that the screws that hold the tie rack will dig into the wood pole.
Excellent for multiple ties
I love this tie rack. It is so convenient.
To store my tries
Just what I was looking for.
Like the speed it brings the ties to you. Saves space in the closet and the light helps in the selection. Do not like the placement of the belt holders but if you have room where the ties go the belts fit great there.
I now have 3 of these tie racks for my immense collection & they are easy to use, practical & durable.
It was such a welcome addition to my husbands closet. Prior to this device, his ties were unstable on a hanger.
Poor quality compared to previous
I bought this to replace my old Sharper Image motorized tie rack. This one is of poor quality compared to previous versions. Its slow and and it doesnt run smoothly. The design is poor and it feels and looks cheap
This is an awesome product for someone who works in an office setting and has a gazillion ties!! Great product!!
Does its job
It does the job it was intended to do. It looks good in the closet and doesnt take up much room at all. The tie hangers themselves are a little cheap feeling but then again they are only used to hold ties.
I had to change the hanging rod in order to accomidate the tie rack. All in all, I like this item a lot!
Its OK, not as good as the older one
The product works as described. However, it is slow and the motoe weak. I had an older, maybe 10 year old, version from Sharper Image that was much better.
This was the best gift I ever gave!
72 ties! It is so good to see what you have and choose easy.
It rotates a little fast
Good way to organize your ties
This saves me a lot of time in the morning. I organized my ties by color group. Now I just turn on my motorized tie rack and select from the right color group.
Only problem I have had so far is that it only holds 64 ties. (I have more.)
Nice Convenient Option
like the convenient option of this motorized tie holder it is easy to install and use. with a press of one button you can easily scroll through all your ties on the carousel. so far so good!
It is everything that I had hoped for and more. Very happy
Well, it was a gift and the person kept their ties in a box. NOW all of them are at arms reach, easily accessible and lighted if needed as they move around the carosel. Need to get one for myself now. LPR
2nd time for this type of rack
This is my 2nd Sharper Image tie rack. I love that it holds almost all of my ties and takes up little closet space. However, this newer model is half as slow as my previous rack. I hope Ill get used to the speed, but I anticipate frustration when Im in a hurry.
Tie Rack is great.
This product has really simplified my life.
I would purchase this product again
I have a wide assortment of ties from daily use to every holiday you can imagine and I wear a tie every day and it is nice to have them organized.
Motorized Tie Rack
I bought two of these for our closet. One of them worked. The other was defective (motor did not rotate, but lights came on). Now I have to return the defective for another. I like the one that does work.
Just not happy I have to go thru the hassle of returning one and waiting for the replacement. I am hoping the replacement will be shipped overnight, so I dont have to wait.
I would recommend this to a friend.
Every now and then you purchase something that really does what it claims and meets all expectations - this is one of those products. It comes assembled, its easy to install and it cleared the clutter of my other tie racks. Now, finding and hanging a tie is easy and efficient - and it has more than enough hooks to hold the average tie collection - very pleased with this product.
I have been wanting to purchase this item for my husband for a long time and finally did. The rack has so many hooks he had only one tie left over! For people on the go and who need to be well organized, this rack is a must-have. I just love it.
Excellent closet addition
My husband has had a Sharper Image tie rack for years and it is still perfect. He got another one (different brand) and it has not held up. Worth the extra few dollars to get this one!
I would buy this product again and again
Very convient for keeping ties organized.
I bought this for my boyfriend because he has a ton of ties and leaves them everywhere. So this was perfect for him.
the best thing i discovered
I bought this item for my son who has ties hanging everywhere. The ones that he put on a hanger always wound up getting wrinkled. Since I purshased the product not only does he not mind hanging his ties up anymore but they are convient to access and wrinkle free. The only thing i regret is not buying one sooner.
Motorized Tie Rack
The battery box is underneath the tie rack. Easy access.
Works as advertised!
I received an older model of a Sharper Image motorized tie rack as a gift; Im not sure how old it was. I put it up and was delighted with how it worked... just what I needed. Unfortunately, the plastic track which holds the ties broke after about a month and I was not able to get a replacement. However, because it worked so well for me, I decided to order a new one which is more attractive and has somewhat eaier controls to handle. I think the rubber track on the old one sort of dried out. It seems easy enough to replace but I am not sure if they tracks are available?
1) Very easy to install (top comes off and snaps onto any size curtain rod with attached screws)
2) Motor is quiet but fast
3) Only con is the batteries (requires 4 C batteries)
4) Dont know yet how well it will hold up or how long the battery will last, but just out of the box its wonderful for the price
Prefer the old model
My husband purchased two tie racks several years ago and I purchased this as an addition. The model doesnt fit in the closet. The new style, featuring the attaching parts on top of the rack as opposed to on the bottom, make it impossible to attach it to the dowel rod (because the screws stand out too high between the dowel and the closet shelf). If you have a large amount of space between the dowel and the shelf you may be able to fit it, but its bulky on the top and didnt work for us. I will be returning it.
Your tie rack works perfectly.
The tie rack is a perfect organizer for small closet spaces. It keeps my ties organized in all of the different colors for easy selection.
One of most useful product for a very reasonable price!
works. Awesome organizer.
xmas gift to husband. so sick of ties on the floor and everywhere. easy to install. works great. we will see how long it lasts but so far I wish his whole closet was revolving!
Good Tie Rack
Easy to install. Works well for many ties and belts.
Got this as a gift for my brother in-law. He wears a tie everyday. He absolutely loved the gift. The rack fits in his cupboard and gives him easy access for the ties. I will probably buy one for myself too.
Finally a tie rack that works GREAT!
I have owned several tie racks and this Sharper image one is the easiest to attach. No hassles with holding it while you try to tighten screws, no balancing acts needed, just a simple sliding motion to lock it around the pole, and then you tighten it down onto the pole with ease. Just got it but so far so good. press one button and the ties fly around with ease. Once you see the selection you press the middle button to stop it and you are done. Time will tell how good it works for the long run, but when and if it wears out, I will buy another one.
Overall I like the product. What I dont like is that it is made for a "pole" and my closet has the more modern wire racks. Also, when the battery goes dead, it is a pain to replace them.
Finally my husband can deal with his ties. They were always dropping on the floor, my attempts to put in color order on hangars never worked. At end of week there would be 5 ties on doorknobs or on chairs. He now actually puts away when he takes off!!! Thank you!!
Easy to use! Light display helps a lot!
I have bought this product again and aga
My husband received this product as a gift at least 10 years ago and it finally died - I had to replace it!
Awesome Organization Gadget!
Prior to purchasing, my ties even organized, but on several hangers. This tie rack not only frees up space but it also allows one to view a large number of the ties at a quick glance. The rest, simply rotate with the motorized capability. Very useful for last minute tie decisions. Very happy I purchased.
This tie rack is great! Its quiet, moves quickly and keeps my husbands bow ties organized. We like it so much he has two!
A great gift item!
Motorized Tie Rack
Most clothing rods are small now a days and made of metal. Previous model had an adaptor for this. This did not and I had to buu material to make the adjustment.
I bought it as a gift for my brother who has tons of ties as he wears a tie everyday to work and does not have room for those ties
You Need This
Not the best for belts.
Not as good as previous electric model.
It is neither as sturdy nor as powerful as the previous electric model. Does not hold as many ties. Does not attach as firmly to the clothes rod and tilts back and forth. turns much slower. Over all not as good a product.
sturdier design - worth the extra $
The first product worked well but was easily broken and no repair was possible. This product tightens from underneath and works very well. A possible suggestion - duct tape around the clothes rod before attaching the product to help keep it from slipping.
It is better than I expected.
I had an older model of this tie rack and the improvements are fantastic. I will be purchasing an additional one for myself and one for my son.
Doesnt fit on all closet rods. This was not explained in the description of the item.
Everything I wanted in a tie rack!!! Exactly perfect!!!
Very nice for keeping ties and belts organized. Easy to put ties back on rack. A little slow though.
This keeps my ties off the floor. Plus, it shows me ties I never new I had.
Bought this for my boyfriend and he loves it.
nice-holds alot,has light
this is a great product w/light,does not take up room-holds alot,better then most tie holders - most tie holders the knobs break.this really is a great product.
Very good product
This is the second one I bought for my husband. Really keeps the ties organized and handy and takes up very little room!
Rack holds a lot of ties and has helped me organize my closet (long overdue!). I had an older version that was great but the new version is a welcome improvement.
Easy manuevering and use for making space in closet. Great rotation speed.
The best on the market
I had a tie rack from another company and I was not happy with it in many ways. I decided to try another unit and the Sharper Image is the one I settled on. There is no comparison to the usefulness of this tie rack. I will never own another brand.
GreatTie Rack but a slight design flaw
I have a large number of ties and need a large version like this one. I especially like the way it wraps 360 around the closet rod. What is not great is that the 4 batteries are all on one end making it off balance. The heavy end drops down due to the weight of the batteries. The design should be updated to counter balance that. I was able to fix mine but if the weight was equally distributed I wouldnt have to.
Bought this for my father in law who wears a tie to work every day. He loves it! He said it is easy to use and very convenient.
Im thinking that I like this tie rack!
I wear ties to work five days a week. Im really liking this tie rack! Easy install and access to the battery comp (nice). Operates quieter, smoother and faster than anticipated; 95% plus, loaded. This unit operates on command; left/right/stop; and the light stays on long enough so that I can confirm what I was searching for in the first place. I am impressed with this unit; and as for the price,... very reasonable. Im going to go play with my tie rack some more; as I bid you adieu.... Bob E.
My ties now are easy access
Excellent product, I recommend it.
Holds a lot of ties, the lighted feature is a plus, the turning feature - backwards or forwards is extremely useful and efficient.
I bought this as a gift for my dad for Christmas and he really liked it. Its super convenient to be able to have all your ties on a device like this. Installation is very easy, but you need to make sure that the rod in which you are installing it is small enough to fit. It is kind of bulky especially since he has so much clothes in his closet, but he really likes it!
Great Rack (Tie)
This is exactly the kind of tie rack that I had been looking for to replace my "dinosaur" of a tie rack that I had before. Love the rotating feature at a buttons touch that allows me to quickly find the exact tie that I need. Just in time for BB season, great, thanks.
Unfortunately, it doesnt fit on our clo
Do determine if it will fit your closet rod.
I bought this tie rack to replace a previous one (different brand and model)that fell apart after one year. My husband wears a suit daily to work, so a motorized tie rack is a must. This one seems sturdy and well-designed. The speed of movement is much faster than the previous model we had. It was easy to assemble. Overall we are very happy with this product. It was worth paying a little more to get this quality.
looks really fancy and luxurious
Hubby Loves it!
My husband was thrilled to have a tie organizer once again. He had one similar to this before and it broke, therefore, leaving ties in a heap on the floor. He said this one seems more sturdy and certainly does the trick!
second time the charm
compact, large capacity, nice light
Great product. I bought it for my husband. He loves it!
holds many ties and belts. easy to operate
Very nice but light will not go off
I bought this gift for my husband. He loves it and it helps keep his ties organized and easily accessible. I need to call the company and see if they can replace a part because the light stays on and will not go off. I plan to update the review after I have that taken care of.
Best way to keep ties organized
Have had one of these for many years. Visited our son and saw his ties on coat hangers and falling all over, knew the perfect gift and spent many monthe looking for it again. When we found your new website I ordered it and he is just delighted to receive it. Said it is a world better than his old methods.
Nice and practical item
I use it almost daily - with no problems
I would recommend this product
I bought this tie rack as a gift for someone else. The tie rack is very durable, unique, and easy to use. It can hold a ton of ties and keep them neat and organized.
This product works great! However, there may be some trouble sizing to bars which are a little wider.
not as fast as my previous one......
I had to replace my old one that I had purchased many years ago because I dropped it & broke during a move. Luckily Sharper Iamge still caried it, but I am disappointed with the speed it goes around. if it is full, it takes forever to run through choices for ties!
I bought this for my husband to help organize his ties. Its great! The 60 hooks allows for plenty of space for ties. The light is very useful and I love that its so quiet. My only complaint is it doesnt fit snugly on our wire-style closet rod so well have to improvise a bit.
Not enough for the money
The device was easy to put together and install. It has plenty of rooms for ties. Unfortunately I have a lot of ties and I filled up most of the slots. The more ties I put on the slower the rack turns. At times it will not even move.
I had purchased this same product from SI about two years ago and it worked so well (and looked so good in my closet) that I bought another one for my ever-growing tie collection. Two problems occurred shortly after unwrapping it and installing it. After taking it out of the box, I set it on my nightstand, went to my closet to prepare it for installation and returned to find that four or five of the plastic hooks on which each tie rests had bent from the pressure of laying the device on its side. I checked the directions that came with the package and saw nothing warning the customer about that possibility. Fortunately, I was able to carefully bend eeach one back to its original form.
When I went to install the device, I was unable to screw the white piece inside (that goes up against the pipe on which hangers rest) the whole way up. In other words, I could not tighten the screw without fear of stripping it. Not wanting to send it back for that reason alone, I gerryrigged it and now it works just fi
Good Replacement for the Original
My great original Sharper Image motorized tie rack had to be replaced. I needed a rack that held the same large number of ties and fortunately Sharper Image had one that fit the bill. This new rack rotates more quickly and quietly than the original. The only downside is that there is no provided mounting hardware for wire closet racks. Fortunately, you can use the hardware from the old tie rack, if you have one. There are even suggested drilling sites on the inside. The tie rack is a little off balance (the front end batteries tip it down) when mounted on a wire rack but its easy to insert a spacer of some sort (I used an empty C battery 2 pack box) at the back to keep it level. Overall, a good replacement.
I would buy this product again
I liked the size of it because it holds a lot, but is bulky and takes a lot of space.
I would not purchase this product again.
I had purchased this product from Sharper Image years ago; the old one lasted almost 10 years. The new one is not as well constructed as the old one, and the controls are not as handy. I purchased two of this product; one worked out of the box, the other one had to be returned as it would not work. A handy product, but noisy, and not as well made as the older product. Nothing else like it on the market, though.
I bought this for my husband for Fathers Day. He LOVED it. I heard him on the phone telling his brother that it was "bad to the bone".
Installed in like 5 minutes- SUPER product! Purchase this one with confidence- you wont be sorry!
great home for ties in my closet
Great for viewing and housing large tie selection. This replaces old noisy creaker that never worked as efficiently.
Perfect for tie lovers
My husband really likes it. He wears ties everyday so hell turn it on and watch it spin until the "right tie" pops out at him.
Great for closet organization.
Light feature great for walk in closets.
Speed of rotation feature sjould be slower
My boyfriend loves it. Good bye hangers that once held his belts & ties. Hello tie rack. Outside of the quick pics as you spin. I like the lighting.
Husband loves: Despite set-up woes
The first gift my husband removed from the original package at Christmas was this tie rack. There was alot of wrestling and some choice words used when trying to install.You would have thought his favorite team was losing a game.
Great about it- very quiet, the light is not intrusive if others are sleeping while the tie fanatic is searching for the select tie du jour.
Easy to use, can also place belts on interior. Holds large number of ties.
Not so great: Well, depends on your closet space and closet rod. Here patience is truly a virtue.
If you have an older closet rod, could be very challenging.Ours is wooden and a bit thicker than the modern day closet rods. (Home built in 1940)Also of importance-- how much space you have behind closet rod and above closet rod. If you have a very small closet, with not much space to maneuver both the placement, level balance and tightening from both behind the tie rack and from the top, then this could be a very frustrating endeavor.
Once finally installed, the el
Smething new & different
It was a gift. I have no feedback at this time.
I Love It!
The electric tie rack is phenomenal, I love it. Above all, my ties are all in order and easy to access. My only complaint is that I cant vary the speed at which the ties move. Im not a morning person and am not "all there" when I get up. ;-)
I would absolutely buy another one and/or gift this to someone.
there are no negatives !!!!
my son is a teacher and has been using this since it was first sold. he wears a different tie everyday, which is why we bought him this second one. nothing keeps ties as organized as this tie rack !!!
20+ years and still working!
What can I say when you purchase an appliance in 1990 and its still working, no repairs, just batteries? I bought this when the Sharper Image had stores in the malls. I understand they got hip to the costs of square footage and now offer internet only.
It does take a little time to rotate, and the decibal level is a little high, but other than that, have to give credit where credit is due.
Hang belts and ties n closet
Perfect for the organizer
Really helps keep the closet organized. I am so happy that there is less clutter now.
My father LOVED it!!
My father is a man of many ties but with nowhere to put them. He loves that there was space to put up to 72 ties. It seemed easy to use, manly looking lol and he would suggest this for use to all of his friends.
I bought the tie holder as a gift for my son. He loves it because now he can see his ties and belts without any difficulty. Also, they are all in one place.
Motorized Tie Rack
Even though we have only had our tie rack for a week or so, it is great. So happy to throw away the old one that EVERY tie fell off of and was very difficult to get a tie from.
A very welcome addition to my closet. Great tie organizer, operation and design.
He just loved it I had looked around and could not find what I wanted Then I went on Sharper Image and there it was I read the reviews which were helpful and were very happy with the purchase
Motorized Tie Rack
Received the earlier version of this, as a gift. It lasted 6 years before the belt broke. Purchased this one because I loved the first one and I did extensive research on like products with this one receiving the best rating. It took about 4 minutes to attach the new tie rack and begin using it. This item is a must for guys with large inventory of ties.
Holds a ton of ties. My husband is on his second one. He wears a tie EVERY day so uses it every day. My son now wears a tie every day as well and they started to accumulate SO I went right to Sharper Image and ordered one for him for his birthday.
Bought this for my husband to replace the hanger he was using. It was easy to set up and very simple to use. He says it works well and is great for someone who wears a lot of ties!
Cool product that breaks easily
Pretty good tie rack
Some things to watch out for:
Make sure to try and balance your tie placement. If you put them all on one side, the rack will tilt.
The rack may not fasten tight enough to the closet pole (mine wont since the pole is made of metal)
The belt hooks under the rack may provide some interference with the rotation of the ties depending on how big your belt buckles are.
Functional, handy and well worth it
This is a great product. If you have a lot of ties, it is a must have!
my husband (and I) love the motorized
Easy to select and store ties, without wrinkles, falling to the closet floor, etc . Frees up wall space for other clothing items.
I bought this as a gift for my brother and he loves it. Easy to use and helps keep his ties organized.
Rotating tie rack
I have many ties and required a product capable of holding my ties without allowing them to fall. This product does the job. It does require room to install as you must slide the top part on to the unit.
This replaced the old version from 7-8 years ago. The new version does not hold as many ties and although it uses the same battery power (4 Cs), it is ever so slow when filled. Very disappointing. That being said, it has been functional for a month. well see how it holds up.
Compact tie storage
Holds a ton of ties. Slow movement when fully loaded tho.
Well made and organized. Perfect for what it does.
EZ to Use Tie Rack
I wear a tie everyday to work and this makes picking out the right one so much easier.
Bought for my husband who wears ties everyday. Very durable, a good upgrade from his last one!
Works as advertised
Added the motorized tie rack to walk in closet project. Much improved storage and access to all my ties and center hangers are good for Trafalgar braces with loop. Ties have stayed put on hangers.
Cant get much better
Only a little bulkier than I thought it would be but thats slightly nit-picking. Dont see how it could be much better.
Motorized tie rack
Used everyday - means I rotate all my ties, not always using the same ones because they are at the front!!!
Great product, would highly recommend it.
I truly like this product and its functionality...I was able to get all my ties out of boxes and in one place. I even gifted one to my Dad for Fathers day I liked it so much!
Perfect for organizing lots of ties
Looks great - light could be a little brighter but overall great product. My husband was thrilled.
Very good !
Does not take up a lot of room and holds more than enough ties !
Good product! Real space saver
Using it daily - no learning curve necessary
my Sharper Image model of several years ago finally gave up the ghost, and I needed replacements. This Smartek unit is lighter and flimsier. the rotation is unusably slow, there are hesitations in the rotation, and the screws that tighten it up on the clothes bar (not shown int the pix) protrude too far to fit under the shelf in my application. Any of these is a deal killer, and all together... well.
I use this product everyday as I use tie on a daily basis. This product has been of great value and performance to me since I received the product as Fathers Day Gift. I recommend this product for all uses
motorized tie rack
The product was for my grandfather. He is a pastor at his church and this product went into good use when it came ro organizing all of his ties.
This product is probably the on the market from my research. The mount is very wide on the top that covers the closet rod which leaves a big gap when using two tie racks side by side.
