In many small closets there is unused space at the top where a shelf is unreachable because of its height. Never used items get stored there, taking up valuable space that can be put to better use with a pull-down closet rod. It’s an alternative to mounting two stationary, rods one on top of the other, and a solution for anyone with a physical disability. With its telescoping handle the pull-down rod is accessible for use in anyone’s closet.
A handyman will install the closet rod for $232, which includes the labor and material. If you have carpentry experience and tools you can buy the unit for $158 and install it saving 32 percent. The rod mounts on the side walls of the closet and comes in three sizes to accommodate closet openings from 21 1/2 inches to 48 inches wide. You’ll find more information at www.rev-a-shelf.com the manufacturer of the closet rod.
