I have always wanted to display student work in my classroom, but finding the time and space has been a problem. With the Hang-Mate™ I can quickly display student work, it looks great, and my students love it. I can change the work daily if I like, without messing with tape or other sticky materials.

Hang Mates have made decorating the children's area of the library so much easier. I no longer have to drag around a very tall ladder and spend hours going up and down it. Now I just use the Hang Mates with my long pole and stay on the ground. I can go from snowflakes to spring kites in a matter of a few minutes. I highly recommend them.

We love the Hang-Mate™ hanging system at our library! No longer must we climb ladders to hang the simplest items- we just use the Hang-Mates. And even though we still use paper clips and fishing line for some items (when we run out of Hang-Mates) we can take them down easily with the Hang Mate pole, so we only have to use the ladder once. We decorated the ceiling of our whole library this summer for Summer Reading and the Hang-Mate™ ceiling hooks made installation and tear down quick and easy! It was awesome! We swear by Hang-Mates!

I have recently used Hang-Mates™ to replace paper clips and yarn and was impressed at how easy they were to use. Being able to adjust the line to the desired level is very convenient. The Hang-Mates™ look so much more professional; I plan on having one above each of my students to display their work. Hang-Mates™ are a great help to all teachers!

I just wanted to thank the two of you for your number line. It was such a relief to walk in this morning and see it hanging ready for use! Next week we will begin
working with multiples and the dots on the number line, so this was perfect timing. Hang-Mate™ has made my teaching environment so much more effective.

I am very thankful to have Hang-Mates™ in my classroom. I hadn't realized how many times I stood on a chair each day. I am pretty short, and I have my walls filled with all of the things we need in first grade. Each week I was adding words to the word wall that was up on the wall. Now, I just pull down the section of the ABC's that I need, stick on the words, and let it go back up. Love it! I'd hate to risk hurting myself for the Dolch Sight Word List....or for any objective, poster, or job chart!!! I also had a display in the hallway that would frequently need untangling or restapling to a cork strip. Now that it hangs from the Hang-Mates, I don't think I will ever have to reposition it again. Thanks again for your product. Since growing taller won't happen for me, I'll just keep using your product to help me out.

I just wanted to let you know that we couldn't have created the set for our Greek Myth Play without the use of the Hang-Mates™ in our ASPIRE classroom. They were the perfect solution for hanging our set designs. The students were thrilled with the results of their designs and production set planning with using the Hang-Mates.
Thanks for the opportunity to pilot them here at HPE. Hang-Mates™ are terrific tools for the classrooms!

I love using the Hang-Mates™ to hang items in my classroom! My students love being involved in decorating our classroom or hanging concept reinforcements. In the past, students created pictures and captions summarizing our class novel, which were then hung from the ceiling to be a visual reminder of the important events of the story. This is a snapshot of the Hang-Mate™ wall rail used to reinforce and celebrate academic excellence. My students love it!

Thank you for sending the Hang-Mate™ Dual Lock for the thin rails. It took less than 5 minutes to put up my mobile, and when I change it next year, I can do it without climbing on the furniture.
Thank you again for your help. I really love this product. The Hang-Mates™ look great, and the patrons think they are the coolest thing ever.

Hang-Mates are very fun and easy to use. I used to unfold a paper clip, attach a string, and climb up on a desk, to hang student work or decorations from my ceiling at school. Now I feel like I am safely able to manage ceiling displays, and it looks much more professional too!
