  • the bolt, nut or any other locking system cannot vibrate out of position;
  • the hook is never side-, tip- or back- loaded;
  • swivel hooks may not rotate under load;
  • the hooks may not be heat treated as this may affect their WLL;

  • hooks are free from nicks, gouges and cracks;

Hooks must be regularly inspected in accordance with the safety standards given in the country of use. This is required because the products in use may be affected by issues such as wear, misuse, and overloading which may lead to deformation and alteration of the material structure.
