Daily prompt – tenterhooks

Click here to read Wikipedia’s definition
I almost did not do this daily prompt because I had no idea what a tenterhooks was. In fact I thought it was going to be stupid ways to hook someone in romantically and tenderly (gross).

Reading the definition of what this device does, I started thinking about how I have never even touched the world of making fabrics. haha although reading further (right now ) I see that it was used in the 14th century. So it kind of makes sence that I have never used this device.

Does anyone own any Tenterhooks?
