Easy... just cut the middle section of the coat hanger out leaving you with the two ends where the shoulder of the shirt would be. Done!

You put them in, then push/pull whatever it is. to the side. like towards your doors. since they're just wire hanger, they'll probably bend a lot.
you know, you can get a set for like 8 bucks off the interwebs? ones that don't bend.

Just remove the radio bezel and push the tabs from the back.

Not if the coat hanger is worth anything. A coat hanger from a dry cleaner would be best, they are usually a heavy gauge wire.
