Kaizen” is the Japanese term for small continuous improvements. And this Bar Hook Backplate exhibits a subtle one. See how both bottom corners are angled back across a diagonally defined area? The feature makes the hook every-so-slightly more resistant to being jostled off the bar. Another ideological victory for those inscrutable Asians, though the practical result here is an American implementation. I can think of at least two major fixture manufacturers who can implement this for you. Banzai! CLICK the thumbnail for both back and bottom closeup views. Can you guess what “Kaizen” the small backplate hole represents?
