I find it difficult to maneuver as the last one i had you could take down one bar at a time and lock it in front of you via a lock in the pulley - it feels like i am constantly wrapping the string around the anchor to put clothes on as it is in front of you - and to raise the bars back to the ceiling (and locking it in place again. If you don't pull the strings perfectly straight down, the whole thing is off kilter. I will be trying it for a month, but no doubt i will be replacing it with one similar to my old one.

First, if the clamps that connect the string to the hanging rack were on both the outside bars (joining up in the middle) rather than just the center bar, the rack wouldn't tip crazily with various weight loads on it.
Second, the rack bars are pretty slick. Enough that heavier garments tend to fall off of it because if there's a weight discrepancy, they'll just slide over it. Similarly, when you bump clothes hanging on it, they can slip off.
Third, the pulley system is ok, but it leaves you with a string to pull that's going to rub up against the outside edge of the rack no matter what you do (unless you've rigged it so you pull on it from 45 degrees out, but then where are you tying it up?). Just adding another pulley would have done the trick here.
Fourth, you have to pull on both strings equally. This is relatively easy to solve by tying a knot in the string, but could have been done better by providing a system where both strings join up to be a single rope.
All in all, I'd probably buy it again and even recommend it, but it's not a perfect system.
The reasons for fewer starts is the following - the tubes themselves have no grip on them causing smaller nylon/polyester/rayon items to fall off when hoisting the system to the ceiling. It's a little frustrating to to balance the system as I raise it. I recommend a type of material on the top of the tubes like you find on "no slip" hangers. The balancing issue could be alleviated by having some type of tension on the line either at the pulleys or at the cleat mechanism. I would also appreciate a little bit larger cleat since it is small considering how much rope you need to wrap around it to keep the system secure once you have heavy clothes on it. With the grip and balance issue solved I feel like it would be spot on for the price. As is it's a splurge financially but I'm still keeping it.
