I HATE doing laundry but I must say that this item has made my laundry experiences much more bearable. Having my clothing already seperated before I begin washing is a BONUS. I put this thing together by myself and assembling is NOT my forte'. Directions were clear and it took me all of 15 minutes in the middle of the night. It is well made, very study. I researched a lot of other sorters and went with this one for several reasons. It has a rack at the bottom for support of the bins, it is made like a commercial sorter with durability and the bags are thick enough to support the pressure of the hangers. I didn't intend to use the clothing bar and having it on the unit was almost a deterant from purchasing. It has come in handly, though. I don't extend the bar but I may throw a wet article of clothing over it every now and them in it's lowered state while unloading the washer. Please note that this thing is pretty big. I purchased it thinking that it would tuck away into my closet but it's presence it known! All in all, good purchase. If I had to make a change to this I would add another bin as I seperate my clothing in lights, darks, whites and delicates. I also seperate my towels but I don't need a bin for that.
