Better, Improved. - Now on "V2" - Slightly longer Heel. it'll work better - trust me.

Aluminium Section 80mm

These fit Standard 80mm Aluminium Section.

Based on a design which worked, but I wasn't happy with:

Ok, so why are they shown in pairs?
See the Spiggot on the upper side of the Hooks (Nearest Front on the Thingiview which I can't seem to rearrange) - that prints upwards. That fits into a socket which is printed on the underside of the hooks.

Now both the dia 12mm hook (actually Ø12.5mm) and the dia 16mm (actually Ø16.2mm) WILL fit together, but I intend the two hooks of the same sizes to be interlocked: this prevents the hooks rotating out and releasing. It's up to you!

This was made for the Aluminium section in our lab, which has shed loads of pneumatic pipes everywhere so this will help me organise the place.

I have 2 of each on print. (See "Made")


Reviewing situation, I want to elongate the Heel so it clicks better into position.

They Work, but they could be better! - So I review and redesign.

WHAT THINGIVERSE NEEDS IS A IMPROVED REVISION / DOCUMENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM. Git Hub does it, why not Mechanical repository of all human knowledge?

Print with the knobble side up.

The underside of the round face isn't actually round, and will print with the overhang.
