Get Hooked!

First developed to facilitate high level traversing for dead wood removal within, and between, trees in an area of oak woodland near Stuttgart, Germany, throwing hooks have just moved on a bit.  The original innovative spark came in 1994 during discussions between Hartmut Bez and Bernd Strasser that spawned a hook made from tube bent in the workshop of Hartmut’s father.

DMM have just launched their take on the self orientating throwing hook – pivoting attachment point with double locking shackle , customisable nose weight, tipping curve, increased branch contact surface area, dedicated hanging position with XSRE carabiner, 18kN rating.
