Mayday mayday. Entire upper closet system broke & fell down, onto lower system which also failed. Now have 150+ items hanging in various doorways. Fire Marshall would give me a fail for access to a 2nd means of egress. Need to buy some quality z-racks...or start selling some of this stuff. #ThriftAndHorde
Outch man, time to rebuild? You should look into something directly on the walls again, only supported properly. I did a project earlier in the year, and it came out extremely well.
Majority of the hanging space was x2 full 8 feet length of linear hanging shelving. Upper & lower. All supported into 2x4s many times over. Some say overkill, but I am at ease knowing the only way these racks are coming down, is if my entire wall comes with them.
The best part about these racks, is being able to use the actual shelving 8 feet across. Holds plenty of shoes :)

This is the main wall, which runs roughly 10.5 feet wide. To the left was the door to a mini walk in closet, of course that door was removed. (redid that inside as well to add 12 linear hanging feet, and 6 shelves for sweaters / ect.
Those 2 8 foot long shelves hold at anytime roughly 250-400 items. To the right (above the window) is used for packaging materials and storage.
Inside the closet is almost identical. 2 racks (upper & lower) 6 feet across. Then on the narrow end inside the closet, we did 1.5 foot across shelves.
Uninstalled, patched holes & painted a day prior. Measured & purchased at night, installed in the morning. Took about 3 hours for the install with 2 people.
