    Never seen these. What do you use them for? You could try someone like RED https://www.red-bhw.com/

    I use these T hooks for my suspend tow chains, the boom-head of my crane has suitable holes/slots which the T hooks fit into, they are inserted/removed by turning through 90 degrees fitting through the slots, turned through the 90 D & dropped into register with the slot. They therefore can’t come out while the load is on them, I also have shortening clutch hooks fitted on the end ring of the chains so that I can make the the chains the length I want, lower the load onto the chains in order that the travelling load is taken by the chains & not the winch/hoist rope plus the sway bar takes some of the towing/travelling load bearing in mind that the sway bar should always be parallel to the ground when travelling. This reduces the likely-hood of the suspended load pivoting vertically on the sway bar under braking.

    fraser look at kuplex chain shortening clutch, they grab the chain at each link, i threw away the harvey frost chains and changed for standard kuplex lifting chain , works much better is fifty years newer and is compatible with your existing brothers, this means if you lift a car that has nothing to hook onto you can add your brothers on and extend to the other end of the vehicle to lift it. i did have some but it think graham got them

    Cheers Richard, They look like a standard clutch hook, but a bit more secure I guess.

    ….but at £50 each, very pricey. Might stick with standard clutch hooks unless I can find them cheaper.

    standard clutch hooks will do the same job, search ebay for kuplex and grade 8 10 chain you will find them

    Cheers, that’s what I’ve been using. The fancy hooks look good, but £6 v £50 is hard to justify.
