design: flaccid plastic knob failure

bad design
Design without engineering is bad design, and there's a lot of it out there. This Casabella Grook Holdr is a lovely-looking tool holder made of rubber and an aluminum extrusion. You can slide handles through the rubber rings and hang things on the hooks molded into the same rubber. Except, the hooks are made out of rubber. Hang anything substantial on them such as a mop or rake and they sag, and pull the ring down. The rubber needs a stiff rod in it to keep it erect.

I wonder if Amazon will censor my review. (I waited my whole life to say it)
