One-inch Grid provides a Slatwall-hook comparable backdrop with detail, dimension, and sight-leak mitigation, yet an airy feel. Simple Display Hooks work, but for weightier matters like backpacks and bags, the upgrade to full Faceout is recommended. Here Flatback Slatwall Faceouts spread the load across multiple cross wires. And oversize Disk Finial serves as Front Productstop and safety device for over-eager shoppers.
Don’t just end your Display Hook as a Front Wire hanging in mid air. Ball-end and Bent Safety Tips are a start, but why not go whole-hog with a welded-in-place-finial … Disk or otherwise. And see that there is no requirement that your Finial be centered. Position high like this for a very serious Frontstop, as well as blunt safety tip to avoid accident and injury. Here the Hooks are heavy-duty enough to qualify as SlatGrid Faceouts, but the finishing flourish could benefit Hooks of shorter length and lighter gauge. Seen at Babies R Us®.
Not just an ordinary upright rack this. Note the drama added by the extra length, height, detailed finial finishing ,and top cap. A great display piece constructed from the simplest of fittings: Bar Stock, Wire Product Arms, and Metal Disk Finials. Black powder coat keeps the tower visually recessive and puts the colorful mugs to the fore. Take a tour using the gallery of images below. Seen at Macys®.
Though overall roughly within the Plug-In Class, Threaded Hooks offer a more permanent method of attachment. The nice fit and finish upgrade the display effect, but threaded elements also add precision operations and cost. Ask yourself would a Friction-Fit Plug-in work as well. See other views and a range of zooms in the thumbnail and gallery of photos below. See the well-made Disk Finial as finishing element.
For the French, finials need not be limited to finishing the frontwires of Display Hooks. Here various size circular Finials create irregular displays in the Trotters flagship store in Paris France, courtesy of the Retail Design Blog. A minimalist merchandising look, to be sure.

This Table Stand Micro Bar tests the limits of the relationship of small hook to oversize finial. Generally it doesn’t look so bad, and achieves the goal of extreme safety and child-proofing in kids specialty apparel. This same Disk Finial presents throughout the balance of the store, so continuing the theme also reinforces store branding. For better looks CLICK through the gallery of photos below. Seen at Children’s Place.
Here a simple custom-from-stock hook creation. A standard Flatback Backplate distributes the load and protects the display surface. A simple circular Metal Disk as frontstop and finshing finial. With an oversize Frontwire, more as design statement than necessity for loading. Add environmentally friendly Silver powdercoat and Voila, a hook that makes a real statement in retail. And look, it mounts to Pegboard too! CLICK the thumbnail.
I can’t recall ever having seen a Faceout and Mount as extreme at this. The heavy metal backplate is bolted in place, with a Faceout heavier than any chin-bar I have exercised with. And while not delicate in nature, the nicety of a staging area and oversize disk Finial is provided to display and retain merchandise. CLICK the thumbnail for a closeup of the backplate.
Disk Finial Slatwall Hooks seem to provide a finishing touch to Toby® Cat Earmuffs. For some reason they turn the cat-based premise into a slight;y more serious proposition. Possible the Disk Finial as visual anchor is what adds to the arrangement. Of course Disk Finials keep merchandise on the hook, add safety, and an upscale tone to outfitting … cat or other merchandise.
I am not an academic authority on the evolution of Display Hooks, but I would guess Single-Prong Downturn Safety Hooks where an evolutionary improvement on sharper-ended Straight-Cut Display Hooks. Eventually Safety-Ball End Display Hooks became the standard, at no extra cost to the retailer, I might add. Broadly rounded Safety Loop Hooks are another progression along this line of display thinking. Still in a litigious society like ours, accidents and lawsuits still happen. Soon all hooks will need to be safety labeled “Do Not Stick In Your Eye.”
Crocs® Hook Finial as additional branding space makes this already unusual Vertical Loop Hook all the more noteworthy. See that the stamped Crocs® logo on the Finial matches and echoes the logo on the children’s shoe hangers. Nicely done Crocs, though I might have added a display header or sign atop with additional branding to call out from a distance.
If you had but one of these to feature in your store, how would you do it? The use of these Straight Entry Metal Plate Scan Hooks might not be optimal, but is somewhat creative. Note that the rack diagonals just clear the upper Scan Arm Frontwires to permit the display. Leave your fixturing suggestion as a comment for extendable clothing racks like this.
Normally an S-Hook or other temporary hradware might satisfy the need for hanging merchandise from Pallet Rack upright. But remember how often such temporary measures get dislodged or fall as the load lightens and stock get low. Maybe there is a niche for this permanently attached Pallet Rack Upgright Peg? Positioned high it is well out of the way of passersby even if emptied of stock. It can’t be dislodged and is always ready for any cross sell inspiration that comes to mind. It even comes equipped with Ball-End Safety Tip. The only downside is the tool-based installation via threaded fastener. Can you offer a tool-free yet permanent mount concept. I give the idea a thumbs-up in any case. CLICK the thumbnail for a closer look.
