Smartek Motorized Tie Rack
This is a very large tie rack and it holds more ties than I think my husband will ever own but it’s still pretty neat to have. I like that this has pretty much everything installed right out of the box. All you have to do for the main unit is stall batteries. (4) C batteries.
When I say that this large is it is because it is, well, it has to be to hold that many things. This tie rack is 18″ long and the main unit is 4″ at it’s narrowest point and the part that mounts to the clothes rod is 8″.
Installing the batteries is very easy and mounting it to the bar is also easy but there is quite a bit of hardware to keep in place but I would imagine you would need it to keep this in place due to it’s size. Make sure that your rod is at least 1″ in diameter. Ours is not and we have a closet system that we bought from Home Depot, even with the clamp tightened all the way we still had to add cushion to install this properly.
The motor on this spins a little fast in my opinion, I could see how it might be a little hard to stop it on the tie you want but that is not that big of a deal because you can just press the back button. But the good news is that it does move slower with the ties on it.
Overall it seems well made, fairly easy to install and the light on it is nice an bright. If the motor was a little slower and it fit on our bar without rigging it I’m sure I would give it 5 stars.
