I cannot quite picture it at the moment, but would the action of mounting a picture frame suspended from a 1D rope on a torindric nail be a sliding motion akin to sliding a 1D rope in a 3D universe between two pegs?

Therefore, if you extrude the torus into a torinder, you should be able to "slide" the rope "on" to the torinder, so that the cross-section would be the above.
Having a torindric nail, i.e. with a head that prevents sliding on one end, and inserted into a wall on the other, should prevent the rope from "sliding off".
However, in this case, wouldn't this stop one from being able to hang/remove the rope like one does in 3D, using gravity to keep the rope resting against the nailhead?
