Max. length: 111 & 3/4".
Care to guess how many inches are going to be hanging into a doorway? if you guessed 'about 1/10th its length', you're right! Care to guess how high the ceilings are? yep, there's a ton of this beast that wouldn't fit if you tried to stand it up on end. Did I mention that if you come in the front door you have to pretty much hang a right /into/ the apartment at 90 degrees-- then hang another 90-degree right turn once you're inside to get into the hall to the livingroom.
Care to guess how wide any door in the apartment is?
Care to guess how wide the bookshelf with 1/3rd my books on it, which is in the way, is?
It's a good thing I got a lot of cash to tip these guys.
