Metal Plate Hanging Tab Thingies

Not sure how to describe these, we used them at another shop to hang exposed plates in the pressroom and I want to employ them at the current shop. They're hook-shaped and have a tab that hooks on to the place where it's punched. so they can all hang off a pair of hooks mounted to the wall.

Right now we're stacking plates and it's a mess, anybody seen/use these too?

This is close, there'd be another "tongue" piece on the front that bends out to grab the plate punch.

That's pretty cool, I use to be a platemaker back in the day, so I've seen various ways of putting plates in.

My favorite was at the paper, send the plates down the conveyor!

I could see someone here getting decapitated if we had plates hanging here.

It's been 20+ years, but I used to work at a place where we had like file cabinet hanging folders, but for plates. Two rails, open the folder, put the plate inside.
