Finally, I found a stocking hanger set that actually works with my mantle and it feels like this will hold up under heavy stockings. I do tend to overfill my Grandkids stockings and need a good strong anchor. The way these are made, the more weight that is put on the bottom, it will create a stronger anchor for the top without tipping forward. Very simple and elegant silver color design. These will also double as hooks for lights and garland so you get more uses. Very good item for the price.
