Hi, I am searching for the name of the wheel-type tree/tool/lazy-susan that servers use to slip in their orders. It has a number of spring-loaded clamps or pins that keep the order in place. It is usually made of stainless steel; it spins laterally and is usually set on the counter or window to the kitchen. I am working on a novel, and I keep referring to it as a metal tree, which I know is WRONG. Please help, if you can. Thanks.
