What are Hooks Used For?

A hook is a tool containing a curved or indented portion in a way that it can be used to grab or connect or attach itself with other object. Hook application fields are apparently various due to hook serving different purposes.

Here are some of the most popular types of hooks and their application:

Utility hooks are typically made with one threaded end and one hooked. This design allows the hook to be installed in a variety of materials to efficiently hold other objects. Household applications include hanging pictures or cabinets, while more industrial applications might be retail store displays or manufacturing supply storage.

Standard S-Hooks have 2 hooked ends, with each side capable of hooking onto something. This design makes s-hooks a great choice for hanging and storage applications. S hooks can be used in a variety of applications. Recreational uses include home organization and simple storage. Besides, many industries use them for hanging air hoses, electrical cords and welding cables to keep them away from walkways and work floors. This eliminates trip hazards by properly storing coiled cables out of the way. Large S hooks are also good for organizing work and storage areas. Hoses coiled on the floor are trip hazards. Use S Hooks to organize coiled hoses for safer work areas,which helps industries maintain safety compliance.


J-hooks are useful for a wide range of applications, such as situations requiring lightweight load-bearing, construction, or product assembly. They’re commonly seen suspending wiring and cords, or even tubes and pipes at bigger sizes. They can even be used in the fishing lure industry, one of the many industries we specialize in serving.

A circle hook is a fishing hook manufactured so that the point is turned perpendicularly back to the hook shank to form a generally circular, or oval, shape. Various studies have shown that circle hooks mouth-hook a greater proportion of fish than typical “J” pattern hooks. It reduced deep hooking and improved survival of released fish and decreased loss of fishing tackle.. With their success already proven for many game fish species, these hooks are now used increasingly for many other common recreational species including bream, flathead and kingfish.

Hook safety use precautions

•Care should be exercised during use, so hook is not abused or damaged.

•Hooks should be selected to match the size with working load limit .Do not exceed the working load limit Loads applied rapidly or dropped freely can result in serious overloading of the hook.

•A hook that is inoperative or missing shall be repaired or replaced. 

•The hook is examined for deformation with special attention

•A designated person shall repair cracks, nicks, and gouges by grinding longitudinally, following the contour of the hook, provided no dimension is reduced more than 10 percent (or as recommended by the manufacturer) of its original value.

•All other repairs shall be performed by the manufacturer or a qualified person.

•Replacement parts, such as load pins for clevis hooks, shall be at least equal to the original manufacturer’s specifications.
