The challenge

Stand in position
A special needs school required a miniature “washing line” to enable students to practice pegging items on the line as an OT exercise.

The solution consisted of a wooden base with two upright posts 400mm apart.  Holes in the posts allowed the line to be set at 300 or 360mm above the desktop.  The free end of the line was secured to one of the posts with a Velcro strap.  A low-cost commercial suction pad was used to hold the device firmly in place, the desktop being very smooth.
