Door Frame Fit Guide

“Will Porta-Hang work on my door?”

This is one of the most common questions we get from potential new customers at Porta-Hang. With no shortage of different styles, sizes and shapes of doors out there, at first glance it may seem overwhelming to determine this for oneself. That’s why we put together this Fit Guide to provide an overview of some basic key factors to consider when determining if Porta-Hang door hangers are right for your environment.


As you may have seen in our How To use tutorial page, the optimal doorway sizes to use our door hangers effectively on are from 4-1/2” to 6” deep (from the front of the doorway to the back) and trim 2-1/2 to 4" tall (the height of the upper-most piece of trim above the door). Trim measuring less than or greater than this range will most likely not be a good fit. 


See our examples below to show what good placement looks like for the Porta-Hang door hangers, featuring the Happy Fingers pocket and Clown Nose pinch holds. Refer back to this guide when travelling as well to quickly assess your hotel room, Air BnB, dorm room or new home door ways.
