Abstract: A lightweight, portable, auxiliary towel rack adapted for use with an existing towel bar includes spaced legs uniquely configured such that the towel rack is securely held in place on the towel bar. Each leg includes a first straight section at one end of which a reversely bent portion having a second straight section is provided. A straight third section extends from the reversely bent portion, the third straight section being substantially at right angles to the first straight section. A short wall-engaging portion extends from the third straight section in a direction generally parallel to the first straight section. The legs are connected to the underside of an oval member having a major dimension approximately equal to that of conventional towel bars. In use, the reversely bent portions of the legs are wrapped about the towel bar and the wall-engaging portions engage the wall.
