Stay safe, guys
Here’s something that you won’t see every day. It appears to be a coat hanger, but the hangers can flip down. What’s the purpose of hanging your coat or backpack on this thing if they’re just going to fall onto the ground? Was this a design mistake or does it serve a specific purpose?
As you might’ve already guessed, it serves a purpose. This is what’s known as an anti-ligature coat hook, or, in laymen’s terms, an anti-suicidal coat hanger. If the hook bears too much weight, like the weight of a person, it’ll switch down. What’s most shocking is that this guy took this picture in his school bathroom.
