For those wishing to replace their existing Pelican Hooks—just match up the thread size, 1/4"-28 LH or 5/16"-24 RH.

True "over-center" design opens easily under tension so you don't have to create slack in the line. One of the safest pelican hooks available. The unique "over center" design causes the body of the fitting, rather than the hinge or plunger pins, to carry the load of a fall against the boarding gate.
