Old style stacking wire in-baskets have a heavy wire that is used for the stacking feature. How are the other ends of the wire attached to the next basket in the stack?

    They appear to be bent around the main frame wire. – Alaska Man May 8 '19 at 19:06
  • Are you asking how the individual wires are attached to each other where they cross? If so, are you certain that they are deliberately joined and don't just happen to get stuck together by some finishing process (galvanizing maybe)? – brhans May 8 '19 at 19:14

The wire has a bend on the end of it, it appears that you would just hook that bend over the wire on the bottom of the basket it will be hanging on.

  • This is correct. The same type of baskets are made and sold today and do this. See here for example. – whiskeychief May 8 '19 at 22:38
