Concept, design, manufacture
Initially, the Simple Hanger was just for me; I thought I could make a better-designed version than the dodgy ones I’d found in local stores.
After a few friends showed interest, I wanted to find out if I was capable of scaling up the process, produce a batch and turn a small profit.
Hand making almost every aspect of the project was an excellent learning curve (something I probably won’t do if there’s a next time). I did far underestimate the amount of time it would take, in hindsight I should have kept records of the amount spent, though I probably shouldn’t know the exact number.
Simple Hangers use 2mm micro-paracord and N42 grade, rare-earth neodymium magnets with a pull force of .700kg. Paracord is strong, as well as mildew and rot resistant, and Neodymium magnets are the strongest type of permanent magnet available — the S1 model can hold a 650g poster without breaking a sweat.
