    No more nails, screws or glues!

    In response to a plea for advice we put on the forum, Glenw pointed us in the direction of "Command Hooks", available widely at DIY stores.

    We took a look, and after a bit of puzzling came up with this idea for attaching those extra bits.

    By sticking the hook upside-down halfway down the back of whatever wants attaching, the hook bits now slot snugly over the pelmet.

    Here's some pics:-

    Clearly they'll have to be taken down when on the move, but we think it's better than sticking things to our nice new Artoo0 (yes it's actually the van's name)!

    Thanks to Glenw for pointing us in the right direction.

        Let's try again.

        Hmm, you're right Tentpeg.

        Can't think why - it looks identical to the link on our original post, which does work (I just tested it).

        Anyway let's try again

        That one's copied from the address line and is different.

            Yes - the link works! What a wonderful way to solve a problem.

            I have a canvas poptop and would like some containers up there for shelving, so I'm just wondering if a couple of these hooks would hold a few containers in the same fashion....
