Help can't find this gadget....

Saw this suction cup, stick on, on a boat at the Miami show. http://home.earthlink.net/~shogie/stickon.jpg We saw some markings on the bottom like OXG or OX6 or OXO but searching on the internet doesn't seem to help. I asked the sales person, yeah right. They didn't know diddly.
Thanks.
Will post where I find them. Think they'll be great for stacking plates, cups etc.

I can anchor 3 or 4 on a formica table or in a drawer and it will keep a stack of plates or cups from sliding around. At least that is the purpose I'm looking to use if for

I'd be interested to know, because something like that might solve a problem I have.

Specifically, I want to install some sort of organizer in my cockpit lazarettes to hang stuff -- spare dock lines, sheets, that sort of thing. Problem is there's nothing there but raw fibreglass and I'm reluctant to start screwing things into that.

So suction cups with hooks on would be a great solution.

Let us know what you find.

Problem with suction cups is they wont stick to fiberglass and need an absolutely smooth surface for adhesive longevity. saw a great range of them in the markets of Tenerife in the Canaries if you know anybody there. . .

So they would be great on our Formica countertops. Just received an email from OXO and sent them a reply w/ the picture. Hope they can help.
