Installing a closet bar on an angled wall


I am installing a closet bar in a bedroom closet. Because the bedroom is part of a finished attic, one of the walls of the closet is actually a sloped ceiling. Do they make mounting brackets for cloths bars that can mount on sloped surfaces? Seems like such a simple thing, but I cannot for the life of me find any such product.

I've also found a couple other descriptions of my problem that tell you to mount the bracket on the back wall of the closet, but do not go into detail how or why, as if it were obvious. Frustrating. Can anyone help?

This is a cross-post from the carpentry forum. Wasn't sure where to put it.
--only one thread on a subject - Thanks

Ah, why didn't I think of that! Thanks so much!

Why did you include washers around the nails?

I wouldn't use nails. Pre-drill holes in the block, use wood glue and SCREW to the upper piece, not nail.
Washers hold the block stronger than just screws/lag screws.

Yeah, remember just how much weight will be hangin off that thing. I'd want to make double sure the block doesnt get ripped out by hopefully finding a stud.

The red was intended to depict a rafter, of course.
No way I'd trust that much weight to anything but! Po)

Yeah, I just got done hanging the drywall in the closet. I have no desire to tear it down with a bar

Instead of using the end connectors supplied with the bar, make your own from a piece of wood. Drill an angled hole that matches the angle of the wall. Install the plate with the proper fasters, based on expected weight load.

If the studs are in the wrong position, you could use a beveled piece of wood to bridge across the studs.
