Test leads littering your lab? We have just the solution, introducing the "Expand-i-Hook".

An expandable hook system for organizing banana plug and other test leads.


Print two, four, as many as you'd like!

I have included the sketchup file and STL. Dimensions are in millimeters.

If there is enough interest, I will print some to sell.

Suggestions, questions? Post em' below.

One possible flaw is that the stress on the tines is along their weakest plane. It's always easier to delaminate a printed part than to break it along any other plane. This problem is exacerbated by the fact that you've printed the tines as a bunch of small islands, which on many FDM printers end up weaker due to temperature fluctuations induced by the slow feedrate. If you want to get a lot of use out of these, you should come up with a way to print the tines flat, and then maybe slot them into a wall mount part.
