The granted patent (Publication Number: US11937712B2) discloses an environmentally friendly hook designed for displays. The hook comprises a paper anchor with an upper channel and a lower cutout, separating the anchor into portions for positioning behind and in front of the display wall. A paper support structure extends from the anchor, holding items hanging from it. Additionally, a detachable slot blocking segment extends from the hook, engaging the anchor's upper channel.

Furthermore, the hook may include an upwardly extending portion at the distal end of the elongated beam. The construction of the hook involves multiple layers of paperboard, with a specific embodiment utilizing three layers of paperboard glued together. This design not only provides a sustainable alternative to traditional hooks but also offers versatility and functionality in displaying items securely.
