Look closely to see the erratic sag of the lower frontwire of these Bar Merchandiser Scan Hooks. Often seen in aluminum and non-metallic hooks, this failure is uncommon in steel … unless a supplier is low-balling the bid and substituting a lesser gauge or tensile strength steel. Always request samples when dealing with new suppliers and test them in the field under the intended load. Always file the samples as a permanent reference to the fixture quality you expect. Always visit the selling floor after the set and inspect fit, finish and function.
