Summary

This is a holder for kitchen dish towels. It attaches with the removable 3M Command Adhesive Strip - medium size. These strips are 'damage-free', easy to apply and removal.

These two pieces key together. By making it two pieces the mount has a flat surface for the adhesive. Additionally in this way, support is not needed.

The inspiration for this was gregmarra's toothbrush holder (thingiverse.com/thing:15617) which was a derivation of dezbot's toothbrush holder (thing: 9056)

Instructions

Print one of each part: the mount and the lock. Clean up the V-Groove features on each as necessary so they match. There is a little bump on the top of the mount to keep the lock in place. Slip the pieces together until they bottom out and the bump clears.

Trim the corners on the top of the slot so towels go in smoothly. Smooth/clean-up any irregularities in the surfaces as needed with a file, knife, or trimmer. A heat gun judiciously applied nicely cleans up the stress lines from finishing.

Apply a small 3M Command Adhesive Strip to the flat side of the mount and apply it to a clean vertical surface (with the slot opening up) in your kitchen or wherever you may need it - in my case the frig.

Fold over a corner on your dish towel and slide it in. If it slips through, use two folds.

These adhesive strips are sold as just the strips (model 17024 - small - 1/2 pound hold; model 17021 - medium strips - 3 pound hold) as well as combinations of the various sizes and quantities or with plastic clips or hooks at Target, Staples, Amazon, . . . The picture hanger strips (more like Velcro with the adhesive) look like they would work equally as well.

I found that the two objects really struggled to interlock all the way down.
