    Here is a 5ton rated crane hook with a dollar bill for scale - and crane hooks are rated for static loads, which your aluminum hook is not.

    Have you actually had testing done or just guessing?

    That is bs. There is no fckn way your aluminum hook will hold 20-25 tons. If someone hooks to that thing and it snaps and kills someone you will be liable for bringing it to this site and selling it.

    Your numbers dont add up. Better go into real world testing if you wanna throw big numbers around.
    And, coming from a qualified/certified rigger, id never throw a rope around one of those. Maybe a clevis in between that hook and the rope, but i wouldnt trust those against rope.
    And thats all on top of the fact i wouldnt trust aluminum hooks.s

    The pricing is pretty much identical to what's already out there.

    I would also like to see real world testing results. In my experience, FEA's are a good ballpark figure but not necessarily something I would market with. The aluminum might not shear until 20k+ lbs, but it would definitely deform enough to fail the recovery procedure before that.

    That said, I think they do look good. I've always been a fan of show hooks like those on the SEMA builds.

    Yeah, those numbers dont match your previous story. You do understand that you cant just pull ratings out of thin air.

    fellas fellas, those numbers where tested from a testing facility.
    The Ultimate failure for the hooks are as follows:

    The Hitch Hook pin failed at 53k lbs
    The Show Hook failed at 21k lbs
    The AR Hammer Hook failed at 21k lbs
    The Royal Shackle failed at 30k lbs

    These were legitimately tested to a breaking point.

    Obviously pretty much any car on the road cant tug even close to those numbers so I think they will work perfect for any type of application out there.

    Pricing is where its at, these are not cheap to make, and if your not conformable with our prices please keep those comments to your self, we appreciate it!

    Ok, but was that test done performed by static, dynamic, or shock load? Shock load alone will cut those ratings way down.

    Why would I put a product out that looks and performs like others for the same price 4 years after? Because return on investment.
