Can anything be done to install clothes hangers in the second row of seats?


Asked by Jan 20, 2013 at 06:18 PM about the 2012 Buick Enclave

Question type: General

If you wish to carry a large amount of clothing on hangers, lots of luck!  The hangers are located behind
the second row of seats.  Can anything be done?

The best I can up with is a bar that attaches to the hanger hooks. It will still be behind the second row but you can hang them all the way across. Something like this one - pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item1c2f2d6f9b&vxp=mtr

We have the bar. Problem is, if it is behind the second row of seats, it is not only very difficult to put clothes on and off, it also is subject to moving cargo crushing the clothes. Need a bar across second row of seats.

We are a retired couple in the market for a new SUV for road trips, but the lack of hanger hooks or grab bars above the second row seats in the Enclave and Acadia is a deal-killer. Convenience for us while traveling is a hanging bar for clothes over the second row of seats with the area behind the second row available for our luggage, cooler, supplies, etc. Is there any aftermarket solution for this?

I was able to make a device for a universal clothes hanging rod found in most National auto parts chains, for around $15. You need 2 1 1/2" long carriage bolts, 2 flat washers size of a nickel, 2 flat washers next larger size, 2 hex nuts, 2 end cap nuts, and 2, 1" seelves. The side with the nickel size washer fits into sockets on roof liner behind back seats. See Photos.

To hang in second row use universal hanger rod found in most auto parts chains stores. Hang on handles above back doors.
