IV pole alternative

I wanted to get rid of our IV pole that we use for hanging the food pump on at night. The legs were really long and the pole was getting all smashed from tightening the bracket for the pump. In the home supply industry it was "disposable" and was very cheaply made. 

This is what we came up with instead. It opens up floor space and was very cheap and easy to do. I just went to the local store and got a towel rack and a hook. I also got some heavy duty screws to make sure it holds to the wall. I have to admit, I am pretty proud of this little idea, and I hope you can utilize this in your house.

  2. Very creative! I'm impressed. When Bethany was sick I got very creative getting her into a stroller and taking her for walks with all kinds of wires and bags attached to a rolling IV pole!

  3. Great idea! We don't use an IV pole daily but I will be sure to share with others who could benefit from your invention.
