I was the same way.
The Hugger is a type of corner guard. What makes it different is the ability to hold onto and object. (Hug. Hence the name Hugger). If you don't use corner guard like me, you will really only be sold on the use as another part of your dance moves while performing for residential customers. I felt the Hugger screamed really loud that we place value in their home without even saying a word about them.
They work great, and as you use them, like Fred, you will discover they come in handy for some of the most unusually situations.
