How does a small or medium Display Buddie attach to an object?
The hooks on the end of the arms are meant to grasp the edges of what you want to hang. Once those are in place you simply pull both cord ends firmly, to securely lock the cord-lock mechanism. The ends of the cords can be tucked under the cord lock or cut shorter.
