) both extensions extending in a downward direction having 40 degrees more or less between the extensions. The W-shaped extensions having a barb surface located at the extreme outer surfaces of the W-shape. The U-shaped top (

12

) having an attachment hole (

15

) located at the top center. When manual pressure is applied on the outer surfaces of the extensions causing the extensions to move closer towards each other until the extensions are touching each other in the closed position thereby allowing the A-shaped rigid body (
