As you may know, we have offered a Mini Hook for some time. We’ve decided it was time to redesign the Mini Hook. Usually when there’s a product I’ve depended on for a long time, or have become familiar and comfortable with its features, I’m rather upset when the manufacturer decides a change is in order. Well, you don’t have to worry about losing your favorite features, in this case. We’re keeping the two classic features that originally defined our Mini Hook, while adding a third feature to ultimately enhance its functionality and ease of use.
This handy little hook is both diminutive and capable of accomplishing two rather unique tasks. The classic features and functions we’ve maintained as mentioned above include the following:
- It can swivel for both left and right hand use.
This allows for access from either the right or left side of the art piece, making adjustments more “approachable”.
- It can be used to snare an object’s hang wire in a secure/anti-theft manner.
Being able to use one hook to achieve both the secure/anti-theft, as well as a standard, hanging application brings multi-use flexibility to your displays. In the photo above, you can see how the standard hanging application changes to a secure/anti-theft application by re-positioning placement of the wire.
With our new design of the Mini Hook, we’ve added a slot to the body. This allows the Mini Hook to offer a new and third capability:
- It can be added to an existing tensioned cable without having to remove the cable from its bottom attachment point.
Simply twist the screw to reveal the slot, slip the hook onto the cable at the position desired, and tighten the screw back into place to secure the hook. Voila! Your new Mini Hook is in its proper place.
I LOVE this feature! This means that re-setting or redesigning your display is now even easier than before. There’s no longer a need to detach the cable from the tensioner to affix additional hook, and tighten with the screw. And to my knowledge, this is a unique feature, offered by no other hook on the market.
In keeping with the already functional and unique characteristics of our original Mini Hook, our new “slotted” feature allows for making a design change that won’t have you missing the familiarity of the original. Sometimes it’s obvious that change is a good thing!
