Snap hook is relative of the carabiners – a closed loop with a spring-loaded opening, operated by pressing your thumb on a catch on the back. Once open, it can be hooked on to whatever you need to attach to before the net is released, and the hook snaps closed. Removing them is as easy-open them up again!
Snap hooks are commonly used in pet leads to connect to the loop of a dog’s collar, in lanyards that must reversibly connect to a cord or belt, and in rope barriers, which must be moved and put into new configurations as part of their ordinary operation.
The snap hooks available by Ropes Direct are an incredibly versatile type of snap hook, which can be connected easily to all kinds of rope or any clasp, and fastening or clipped into another buckle or hook without hassle.
