“V” bookend / bookend

“V” bookend
“V” bookend

Bookends are placed at the end of a row of books to keep them upright on a shelf or table, but the erect part of bookends always curves when they support too many books.
“V” bookend is designed to solve the problem merely by a little change in shape. As we all know, a lamellar object is easy curled while a lamellar object with a turn can not be curled easily in the upright direction with the turn. “V” bookend has two turns at a 135 degree angle in the edges to make it support more books. The turns can exactly add the bookend’s power. The turns also make it easier for you to hold and move the bookend to add the space for a new book.
