Pego - My Invention

 I need help trying to get my invention manufactured. Or help to stop me dreaming of Pego ever being a success! It's a clothes peg - same size & material, just a different shape. Clothes pegs sell - Pego should sell. When it's not hanging washing out kids can clip them together to build models - the shape allows the clamp to grip the body - the handles spring out to also act as grips. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ydl_RCCQKo&feature=fvst I have a few days left on quirky.com & need comments & votes to help Pego to manufacture. http://www.quirky.com/ideations/166745 Let me know what you think - why won't it work? Cheers Andrew Canfield
