The hanger is divided down the middle with a non-moving central support of two attached flat metal pieces. The two sides each consist of two central pieces of flat metal with seven almond-shaped pieces cut out of each. The middle sections are hinged which allows them to be swivelled sideways. There is a moving metal tab on the handle which can slide down and lock the middle sections into place.

Dr Ralph and Mrs Olga Crawford donated their extensive Canadian dental collection to the DCF to create the museum in 1997; further donations were received while Dr Crawford was Curator Emeritus at the Dental Canada Museum until its closure in 2008; these instruments, with their thin, oval blades, would be used to easily reach the gingival margins, and for working between teeth that are close together; they would be used for filing, or burnishing, new amalgam fillings; Auguste Maillefer began making dental instruments in 1889; the company is now owned by the Dentsply group
