The small Aerial Silk Hook has a unique design, utilizing a weld-free construction. This hook is designed to reduce silk wear and increase strength by having the silk tied around a 50 mm diameter aluminum tube. The tube, with it’s large radius, spreads the weight load on the material over a wider section of fabric. This is a superior design over a standard flat Rescue 8 style.
This silk hook is made from a aluminum tube that has a hard anodized coating. The hook bar is made from stainless steel. These material will not mark or discolor the silk, like some other types of un-coated aluminum silk hooks. Having a silk hook without any welds makes for a easy safety inspection of the silk hook.
The finished knot has a very elegant professional look. Please note that this hook is made for fabric that is 150cm (60 inches) wide; a wider or very thick fabric may not fit this hook.
