10. A hanging apparatus as claimed in any one of claims 6 to 9, wherein the grip means comprises a pair of mutually opposing flanges each projecting laterally outwards from the primary hook or other such form at or about a free end thereof.

1 1. A hanging apparatus as claimed in any one of the preceding claims, wherein the hanging apparatus has a means for movably attaching the surface mounting means and the securing and locating means together.

12. A hanging apparatus as claimed in claim 1 1 , wherein the movably attaching means comprises a movement restrictor means for fixing the securing and locating means in at least one position relative to the surface mounting means.

13. A hanging apparatus as claimed in claim 12, wherein the movement restrictor means fixes the securing and locating means in a position projecting laterally outwards from the surface when the hanging apparatus is fixed in situ on the surface.

14. A hanging apparatus as claimed in claim 1 1 or claim 12, wherein the movement restrictor means fixes the securing and locating means in a position projecting laterally outwards between 45° and 135° and preferably between 70° and 1 10° relative to the surface when the hanging apparatus is fixed in situ on the surface.

15. A hanging apparatus as claimed in any one of claims 12 to 14, wherein the

movement restrictor means fixes the securing and locating means in a position being downward parallel or substantially parallel to the surface when the hanging apparatus is fixed in situ on the surface.

16. A hanging apparatus as claimed in any one of claims 1 1 to 15, wherein the moveably attaching means comprises a component on the surface mounting means and a co- operating component on the securing and locating means.

17. A hanging apparatus as claimed in claim 16, wherein the component on the surface mounting means is a pivot means or a secondary hook.

18. A hanging apparatus as claimed in claim 16 or 17, wherein the co-operating

component on the securing and locating means is a pivot means or a secondary hook.

19. A hanging apparatus as claimed in claim 17 or 18, wherein the secondary hook cooperates with the pivot means.

20. A hanging apparatus as claimed in any one of claims 17 to 19, wherein the secondary hook comprises an opening for receiving the pivot means.

21. A hanging apparatus as claimed in any one of claims 1 1 to 20, wherein the moveably attaching means enables the securing and locating means to move between at least a first position and a second position relative to the surface mounting means when the hanging apparatus is mounted in situ on the surface.

22. A hanging apparatus as claimed in claim 17 or 18, wherein the pivot means is a

pivotal bar and the pivotal bar is spaced apart from the surface where the hanging apparatus is mounted thereon.

23. A hanging apparatus as claimed in any one of the preceding claims, wherein the surface mounting means comprises a surface mounting area.

24. A hanging apparatus as claimed in claim 23, wherein the surface mounting area can be fastened, fixed or mounted to a surface.

25. A hanging apparatus as claimed in claim 23 or 24, wherein the surface mounting area is substantially planar.

26. A hanging apparatus as claimed in any one of claims 23 to 25, wherein the surface mounting area comprises a means for receiving a fastener and/or a means for receiving adhesive substances.

27. A hanging apparatus as claimed in claim 26, wherein the fastener receiving means comprises at least one location where a fastener can overlap with and/or be inserted.

28. A hanging apparatus as claimed in claim 26 or 27, wherein the fastener receiving means comprises at least one location that has a reduced thickness and/or density and can therefore receive a fastener more easily than the surrounding material.

29. A hanging apparatus as claimed in any one of claims 26 to 28, wherein the fastener receiving means comprises an aperture or a plurality of apertures.

30. A hanging apparatus as claimed in any one of claims 26 to 29, wherein the surface mounting area comprises an aperture sized to receive a screw and one or more apertures sized to receive one or more nails or pins.

31. A hanging apparatus as claimed in claim 17 or 18 or any of claims 19 to 30 when dependent on claims 17 or 18, wherein the hanging apparatus has a means for spacing the pivot means a distance apart from the surface.

32. A hanging apparatus as claimed in claim 31 , wherein the spacing means comprises at least one flange projecting outwardly from the plane of the surface mounting area.

33. A hanging apparatus as claimed in claim 31 or 32, wherein the spacing means

comprises at least one flange projecting outwardly from, and substantially

perpendicular to, the plane of the surface mounting area.

34. A hanging apparatus as claimed in any one of claims 31 to 33, wherein the spacing means comprises a pair of mutually opposing flanges projecting in the same direction from the plane of the surface mounting area with the pivot means extending therebetween.

35. A hanging apparatus as claimed in any one of the preceding claims, wherein the

hanging apparatus further comprises a means for preventing the securing and locating means and the surface mounting means from separating or coming apart or detaching.

36. A hanging apparatus as claimed in claim 35, wherein the separation preventing

means is disposed on the securing and locating means and/or the surface mounting means.

37. A hanging apparatus as claimed in claim 35 or 36 when dependent on claim 17 or 18, wherein the separation preventing means is located at or about the end of the secondary hook.

38. A hanging apparatus as claimed in claim 37, wherein the separation preventing

means comprises a protrusion located at or about the end of the secondary hook, the protrusion reducing the size of the opening for receiving the pivot means in at least one location.

39. A hanging apparatus as claimed in claim 12, wherein the movement restrictor means comprises a mechanical brake.

40. A hanging apparatus as claimed in claim 39 when dependent on claim 17 or 18, wherein the mechanical brake is located on the pivot means and/or the secondary hook.

41. A hanging apparatus as claimed in claim 40, wherein the mechanical brake

comprises a co-operating brake means on the pivot means and/or the secondary hook.

42. A hanging apparatus as claimed in claim 40 or 41 , wherein the mechanical brake comprises a plurality of substantially flat surfaces on the pivot means and a plurality of substantially flat surfaces on the interior of the secondary hook wherein the substantially flat surfaces of the pivot means abut the substantially flat surfaces of the secondary hook putting the brake into effect.

43. A hanging apparatus as claimed in claim 1 1 and 23, wherein the moveably attaching means is located below the surface mounting area when the hanging apparatus is fixed in situ to a surface or the moveably attaching means is located above the surface mounting area when the hanging apparatus is fixed in situ to a surface and wherein the user can detach the securing and locating means from the surface mounting means and alter between these configurations to select the desired location of the moveable attachment means relative to the surface mounting area.
