Bishop Lifting offers a wide variety of hooks for all sorts of applications, and can even help you with the design and creation of custom equipment to meet your needs. We keep many of the most common styles in stock such as eye hooks, shank hooks, swivel hooks, sorting hooks, grab hooks and SHUR-LOC® self locking hooks. Most hooks are available with hook latches which are intended to retain loose slings or devices under slack conditions. If your hook latch is missing or damaged we also offer replacement latch kits for a wide array of brands and model numbers. Our services department can also help with inspection and testing on hooks and other rigging hardware. We offer Non Destructive testing, Ultrasound testing, Tensile testing, Ultimate testing, and Proof testing.
Crosby's QUIC-CHECK® Hooks feature Deformation Indicators , two strategically placed marks which allows for measurement to determine if the throat opening has changed, indicating abuse or overload. QUIC-CHECK® hooks also have 45 degree angle indicators which help the rigger approximate the sling angle of 2 sling legs in the hook. Crosby's hooks are also quenched and tempered to improve ductility, impact resistance, and fatigue properties. This heat treating process ensures that the hook will bend significantly before breaking when overloaded.
It is important to make sure that all hooks you are using for overhead lifting have the name or trademark of the manufacturer stamped on them for trace-ability. If the hooks you are currently using do not have a manufacturer on them or the manufacturer's markings have become illegible you need to replace the hooks to be compliant with ASME standards.
