IKEA Guitar Hanger Hack

Despite not being in a real band since 2000 (despite my youthful glow, I'm pretty old...punk) I still have about 9 guitars & basses. It's absolutely ridiculous but I just can't get rid of the damn things. They take up space I don't have. The acoustics I own are hanging on the wall on some guitar hangers I found on Musician's Friend. The problem is they stick out pretty far from the wall, which is great for thick body acoustics but sucks from electrics. They just kind dangle about 3 inches from the wall, literally blowing in the wind. They do make special hangers for electrics but they're about 4x more than the ones I bought. Today on LifeHacker they showed how to use cheap ass towel hangers from IKEA to mount your electric guitars nice a snug to the wall. I thought some of you might find this useful.
