Folding hanger AIBDC : 000905 This object is part of a trial to see if giving specific guidance on research methods makes the game a more successful means of obtaining information about the objects featured. Its use of the living hinge made possible by the characteristics of polypropylene makes it a very interesting design. We want to know who designed it and where it was made. It had a patent pending. I wonder if that provides a good lead? Follow the investigation here: http://10most.org.uk/artefact/folding-hanger.

No one has taken up this challenge. I have a question. How many components go into its creation? May be thinking about that will bring out its magic.
