Shark Tank Sneak Peek: A Hanger Hawker's Childhood Dream Gets, Well, Hung Up

A teenage inventor is figuratively and somewhat literally left “hanging” in this exclusive sneak peek from Friday’s Shark Tank (ABC, 9/8c).

Ryan, 19, regales the Sharks with the tale of how as a third-grader he solved a household problem as part of a school assignment, ultimately coming up with a “breakaway” clothes hanger that won’t stretch out shirt necks and makes extraction from a closet easier.

It’s a nifty notion, but as this video asks: Um, is it already on the marketplace?

Also in Friday’s fresh Shark Tank (which leads out of an 8 o’clock special): Two Brooklynites pitch compostable party tableware; a Marina Del Rey man peddles flowers shipped direct from farms on an active volcano; and someone hawks a “game-changing” solution for mouth wrinkles.

    I agree, this is one of my favorite ‘reality shows’. Every week after watching the show I am thinking “Why didn’t I think of that?” Drives me nuts that I can’t seem to get some of my ideas past just that – the idea part. As far as the collapsible hanger – Love it! I would buy these in a heart beat if they were priced right. I have never seen these before, even though Lori says there are similar products out there. I worked at the Warner Brothers Store during the Christmas season many many many years ago. And after folding and refolding what seemed like a billion shirts each day I swore I would NEVER fold another piece of clothing again… and I haven’t. Everything gets hung up. These would be prefect for me! Hope he gets a deal.

    I have been trying to buy the HangEase collapsible hangers for months & months & have been unable to find out how or where to order!!! I would like to buy them from the teenager on Shark Tank, but HOW! Does anyone know of similar product that compares to HangEase?
