Campbell, a premier brand of chain and fittings from Apex Tool Group, announced its new Eye Hoist Hooks. The hooks feature a heavy-duty latch and spring assembly.
The new latch and spring assembly is designed for durability. The heavy-gauge, high-strength steel latch with reinforcing rib provides rigidity and bending resistance and has a yellow chromate finish for corrosion resistance. A double-strength spring ensures the latch is held against the hook to securely retain slings and other components. For added durability, the hooks are designed with dual forged support bosses, providing lateral support for precise latch/hook engagement.
The new hooks have a 5:1 design factor and the various sizes offered have a working load limit range of 3/4 ton to 15 tons. They are available in carbon steel (blue or galvanized) or alloy steel (orange).
