Slides into position at the waist. Your wetsuit drapes over a circular/I-beam bar 1.5 inches wide, eliminating shoulder wear damage and reducing wetsuit repair costs due to the wetsuit fabric delaminating and fatigue. This wetsuit hanger is the best choice for long term storage. I've tried them all over the years and this works great. Nothing else comes close to eliminating wetsuit hanger-wear issues. Not expensive. Made from recycled ABS plastic in the USA.
