Plug-in Hook of a Different Sort

Radically different than other plug-in or mainline pegboard hooks, this creation did a masterful job merchandising. Its butterfly shape, central spine and serrated outriggers served up carded merchandise rock-solid level and could even face the items (I pushed cards back to reveal the hook detail). A pinch released the horizontal grapples. An angled, back tab (back center) provided forward tension when plugged in, anchoring the grapples more firmly. The hook fits this specialty board, and assumedly standard pegboard, and offers all the advantages of straight entry. That’ s quite a bit for a simple (or actually not so simple) piece of molded plastic. Careful though, it’s clearly marked “Patent Pending” though not completely unseen in retail.
