YES! It’s finally gone up.
Here’s a follow through to the previous post. I’ve been to the workshop and I have experimented with riveting 12 layers of blinds. It is strong. And can potentially hold a coat for long periods of time. The only thing that let me down was its inability to snap back to it’s former state. The reason maybe hole where it bends from,that causes the crease and its inability to snap back. Maybe completely cutting that top part off and bending it instead where there are no existing holes. Will it snap back when the weight of the coat is lifted from it?
Another visit to the workshop is in order.
