Butt-Ugly Backplate for Scan Hook

In the unending quest to “build a better mousetrap” many Hook Backplate designs vie for fixture dollars. This Backplate is among my least favorites. It may have manufacturing advantages due to reduced size and simplified angles of the B/P stamping (see main photo inset). But the pointed shape and knife-edged lugs would not seem kind to your display surface. Not to mention the fact that it is just plain butt ugly. CLICK thumbnail for a closer view. Label Holder is a standard Metal Plate for Adhesive Label.
