I think you really have something here. Not everybody has a program for scad files, but I do.
Unfortunately, the hooks are too weak for my needs. I'm trying to display Nerf guns on a 4mm pegboard and these flex too much. There are other factors including material, but if you were able to modify this to have a look more like Nightcrispy, they could be extremely solid.

Is it possible to modify your file to include a lower brace(like a triangle) ??? specifically on example 2d

Pegboard Hooks

The lower brace can be achieved by increasing the length of the vertical anchor.

The code allows you to change the cross section anywhere from a rectangle to a circle. In the end the strength will be limited by the strength of plastic for the cross section of a pegboard hole. You might try printing 100% infill. I'm hanging hammers, trumpets and large tape rolls without any sag/breakage. If you need a hook thicker than the pegboard hole (or more/larger connection points with the base) you could either modify the hook section in the scad file or take an STL from a hook base and mash it together in tinkercad or some other CAD software with something more custom.
