Before and After Examples

Figure 2:  The store's layout dictated the hanger be put in the location of a major damage to the masonite-type pegboard.  The product weight on this heavy-duty hanger, consisting of a heavy-gauge, double-wire prong, attached to a large (1"x3") apron, is on the verge of pulling the tangs of the hanger through the pegboard (shown in the photo on the left below).  The DRS plates can be used in multiplicity to "mend" more severe pegboard damage and, as shown in the photo on the right below, bridges multiple cracks in the pegboard, alleviates the droop, and provides a solid base apron for the hanger in the required location.

Figure 1:  In the example below, the hanger on this masonite-type pegboard has both the tangs pulling through the top holes and the apron pushing through between the bottom holes (shown in the photo on the left).  The DRS plate (shown in the photo on the right below) makes the damaged area entirely useable and fully supports the hanger and its associated load.  The white arrow and white star on all the before and after photos is for reference showing the target row of holes for the hanger and the star showing the position of the scan tab on the hanger.

Figure 3:  There are about 16 pounds of product on this dual-prong hanger, and the weight is causing the tangs of the hanger to start pulling through the pegboard (shown in the inset on the photo below left).  The only reason that the large amount of product is still on the hanger is because the bottom of the product is resting on the hanger below it.  The DRS plate increases the effective apron of the hanger, reduces the back pressure on the pegboard and lifts the prong, which can hold product without slipping off.

Figure 4:  Standard pegboard hooks are being used on a metal pegboard, which does not have the same "thickness" as a standard pegboard  The hangers are not  properly supported on this pegboard, causing the prong on the right to droop. The DRS plate (a gray prototype version) has been utilized on the left to raise the prong to a desired position perpendicular to the surface of the pegboard.
