RedHead Wader Hanger
When I needed a way to hang two pairs of waders for our church baptistery, I looked at several manufacturers. Most were too large or too flimsy, but the RedHead Wader Hanger at Bass Pro Shops stood out.
Although made of plastic, the forks seemed plenty sturdy to hold the size 10 waders. Since each holder is for a single pair of waders, they can be grouped as required inside a closet or in a small space.
The mounting holes were rather difficult to use, being both above and below the hanging forks, and required a long extension to my screw gun.
I would not trust this product to last more than a few years, as there are no braces or supports directly beneath the forks. However, the product is inexpensive enough to warrant replacement should one fail.

Very Good Hangers
Recently purchased these Redhead Wader Hangers (2), one for my chest waders and one for my hip boots. Both fit nicely into the hangers and I expect the boots will dry out much better after each use. The hangers were easy to install, just a couple screws and my cordless drill. The only slightly negative comment that I could make is that I wished the screw holes had been countersunk so that the screw heads could be flush with the hanger surface. I was a bit afraid to use my countersink tool on the plastic.

This is the 3rd one of these I have bought and each one has worked great. I have plywood on my walls so the screws that come with it are prefect. Takes about a minute to put it up. I have 3 different sizes and kinds of waders and each one fits into these and they have never fallen out. They fit boots as well. These are a must if you have waders.

does not hold up
Looks good, and a good idea...but after the waders are hanging on the rack for awhile, it droops and allows them to fall off. If light weight waders are used, I suppose the rack would support them. Boot foot waders, not recommended !!!
