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.
