I don’t often see Aluminum Hooks, but when I do I often see the Aluminum Hooks in failure. Many of these two-sided “Boxer” Bar Hooks were sorry shape throughout this store. Oddly many Aluminum Hooks are employed with overly long frontwires, making them all the more susceptible to damage due to the extreme lever-arm length. They might be a competiative solution in short lengths. Please comment if you have an insight or opinion.
