Coat hanging hooks - prototype testing

Gave up on every kind of hook I could find in retail stores - the 3M Command series (medium size) is rated for a measly 3 pounds, and didn't really fit where I wanted them anyway.

Proto hook is 1 inch wide, taped to another panel held by a vise. Holding a 10 pound weight after 4 hours, a 72 hour cure (3M spec) should hold 40 pounds based on 2 square inches of tape.

Wifey approved, installing tomorrow to hold wet coats between the bath wall and entry door of our 21.

This forum is just loaded with life-long learning. In just the last three days I've learned several new terms including; lefse, lutefisk, poutine, animal fries, tripletripleanimalpro and skookum. What will tomorrow bring?

PNW word: Strong, powerful. All good stuff. Native American (Chinook) derivation (I had to look that part up). A very, very good word. I guess I don't even think about it being local jargon as it's just part of our (at least my) vocabulary.

Edited: Now I'm trying to think of a good English synonym and cannot come up with the right one for the life of me. All I can do is clench my fists and say, "Mnn." That's skookum.

I like that too. Going to name it that when I put it up on my website as a product - "Snookum Hook"

So if I get an email from Karen she gets a couple sized to her specs free..........
