If you skid logs, or otherwise drag things like brush piles then this new Forest/Slip/Choker hook is just the ticket for you. The innovative design with the captured pin and rounded shape all but eliminates snags and hang-ups that can occur with other style hooks.


Available on the Chain/Rigging Accessories Page at the website, more pics to come soon.

That's a great looking hooker!

All bad puns aside, that's a smart design. I'll be ordering as there's nothing more frustrating that getting on an off equipment when the dang chain slipped off the hook.

Is there any way to add that hook as a "secondary hook"?? :dunno:

I would hate to dedicate a chain as a choker,,,

I use these attached to different hooks. Just use the hook I need...

:think: Explain please?
If that choker hook is on a chain end, the chain can not be used for applications that require a regular hook.

The choker hook is not as "universal" as a grab hook, or whatever a regular hook is called.

The choker hook would be great for what it is designed for,,, :thumbup1gif:

It is possible to have more than one hook on the end of a chain. The hooks were on a ring. The ring was connected to the chain with a connecter link.

Sure, but some of those "connector" links are usually NOT rated very high. It also would defeat the purpose of this hook, you'd be dragging/snagging the other hook along with it.
