Performance rated Brummel Hooks are one of the quickest, lightest, and most reliable means for connecting and disconnecting lines aboard any type of boat. Brummels save precious seconds and provide secure holding power without any moving parts. Their tapered design is far stronger than conventional hooks. No protuberances to catch or snag. Scientifically beveled opening permits instant hooking and unhooking but cannot separate by itself. Ball is sized for specific wire and rope diameters and rounded to prevent cutting, chafing, seizing or weakening.
