Heavy wood and solid brass make a substantial statement in this shirt rack. The Hourglass Endrack Finial provides a staging area for best presentation of the merchandise. And the finial neckdown is in itself a clothes hanger hook staging area, offering retention against dislodging by passersby. Compare views in the gallery of images.
Another example of heavy lumber in Rack construction, this with a Disk Finial approach to Rack End presentation. No chance that merchandise wil be knocked from its perch here, unless knocked off the clothes hanger itself. See from various distances in the Gallery of images.
I admired the detailing of this Rack End Staging Hook. A very deep and broad Finial necks down several time to reach final diameter, then tuns a right angle and necks up in diameter to finish off with a Cubic Base. Iy hosted Bar III Branded Clothes Hangers and Wares so I must attribute to them.
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.
Yes, Anti-Sweep Hooks help prevent mass theft of items, but their hidden benefit is their built-in Staging area. Backstock remains protected with limited access to the hook rear, while the forward Landing Area automatically billboards and faces product. Add in savings through elimination of the need for ICCs (Inventory Control Clips) and how could you NOT use Anti-Sweep Hooks for massed merchandising like this. CLICK the thumbnail and gallery for all manner of views. See that these seeming Display Hooks include Metal Plate Label Holders for Back Labeling, further eliminating the need for Scan Arms or full Scan Hooks.
Seen before on Pegboard and Grid, Anti-Sweep Hooks make a debut on Bar with this Saddle Mount Metal Plate Label Holder design. A single hump and right-angle tip makes sweeping more difficult in that massed packages do not easily cross the divide and round the corner. Extra space at the Display Arm front provides a staging area for facing product and quick selection of the first one or two items in line. CLICK the thumbnail for a closer look.
This hook almost challenges the imagination enough to join the ranks of Mystery Fixtures here on FixturesCloseUp. But though exotic the use can be inferred. The DisplayArm zigzag profile requires items be “threaded” off the hook one at a time, baring sweeping and hall theft. The rear of the Display Arm is lockable positively securing excess back stock. Staging areas exist at front, with extensive Backstock space at the rear. The upper Scan Arm is a simple Metal Plate Label Holder Design, while the Flat Backplate can actually Pushpin to the Pegboard for yet another level of security. A unique hybrid, and though a challenge, function is interpretable. CLICK the thumbnail for alternate view.
Sunglass Hut® invades Macy’s® with a display of it’s own. This concept translucent plastic surface with twist-to-lock Plug-In Display Hooks. A walk through of the photos pretty well tells the story. Nicely finished white powdercoat frontwire, with a tapered staging area for the bridge of eyewear on display. Crazy Idea: why not make all slots Twist-Lock capable in size? Then you could align eyewear in rows, columns, diagonals or random offsets? Write that down. It might be my only good idea in a lifetime.
A ferrule with a flourish. Nicely turned brass offered a staging area for merchandise while safety capping a hang rod extension. I’m not sure what it costs to lath one of these finials down, but they are works of metalworking art. CLICK theough the gallery to admire in alternate views.
The staging groove for this Tubular Faceout appears to be machine-rolled into the fixture. But it might also be lathed or just be an End Cap, that once powdercoated Grey, makes the Faceout appear continuous and one piece. The Hook Plugs-In to a central upright. Though the staging area would work well for Clothes Hangers, Hang Cards and other small attachments, here the arm was used to display cookware. My interest, however, was the nicely done staging concept. CLICK the thumbnail for a look at the Plug-In end.
The one-hanger-width of this staging area not only keeps item positioned identically across all rack ends, but is narrow enough to force the offering to hang perpendicular to the rack. The similar positions and facing angle will subtly and subconsciously dress the store. Though not directly perceived by most customers, the effect does upgrade your image, and maybe even the price you can charge.
The circular dot mounts for these Knurled Knob Hooks were made part of this stores modern Decor. The Knobs attach easily where needed without tools. The Display Hook Arms employ double square-cross-section frontwires for added load bearing capacity. A front staging area for facing the merchandise is an added touch. CLICK through the gallery and imagine how it might look in-store.
The original photo is not mine, so I cannot offer additional detail on the pastel color Bar Hooks marching across the top of the frame. Notched at the end, they would seem to offer a forward Bar Mount or Staging Area for facing items.Here the Saris themselves are casually draped from Hook-Back-to-Hook-Back.

Who would guess you could buy into Conduit Benders at multiple price points? The $79 version at right is truly larger and heavier duty, but is its role a trade positional good or outright Decoy Pricing to get buyers to trade up to the mid-range $42 version? Conduit Bender marketing would seem to be very competitive. Oh yes, almost forgot, hookery are Permanent Mount Double Undulating Arm Utility Hooks. The undulating arms provide stations and staging areas for this heavy, break-a-toe-if-dropped item. CLICK through the galler to see that though hinged like a Straight-Entry Hook, they are actually screwed permanently to the display backdrop. Also note the Backtags for pricing.
