1. How many different sizes are available?

Four sizes are available --- CS-6, CS-9, CS-12, and CS-15.  The number designation refers to the overall length of the hook in inches.  Each larger size is thicker and stronger for carrying loads.  Each larger size also has larger openings in the S-shapes.

1. What is the difference between the T5-J and the T5-L?

The T5-J comes with J-bolt hardware.  The T5-J will not work on I-beam or T-bar grating.  The T5-L comes with L-bolt hardware.  The T5-L will not work on grating with square opening.  They both will work on all additional types of grating not mentioned above.

2. Is your gate spring loaded?

No, the gate relies solely on gravity to bring it closed.  Due to the angles built into the hinge, the gate rises as it is pushed open and when released, gravity returns it to the closed position.

2. What are the benefits of using the hooks?

Principally, the hooks are employed to elevate work lines, thus avoiding tripping hazards.  This feature is particularly useful in high activity areas or limited work areas such as during plant turnarounds and aboard ships and offshore rigs. Because the hooks are molded of a glass-filled polyester, they are non-conductive and have smooth edges that will [...]

2. What T5 do I need to order?

This will depend on the surface you are using it on.  The T5-J will work on almost all grating that has vertical flat bars, either with square holes or rectangular openings.  If you have I-bar or T-bar grating, you will need to use the T5-L.  If you want to use them on solid flooring, such [...]

3. Can I get just a few hooks to try them out?

Sure, you can purchase whatever number you need.  We offer a less than box quantity price just for this purpose.  However the price is more attractive if you purchase them in full boxes of 25 hooks.  Additional discounts are available on multiple quantity box orders.  Refer to our literature and price list.

3. How do you determine what size gate is needed?

Gates are available in four standard lengths or sizes --- 22", 27", 32", and 37". Measure the opening between the guardrails.  The gate size should be equal to or greater than the opening.  This will insure that when the gate is closed, it will contact the vertical post of the opposite guardrail.  Thus if the [...]

4. Can the hooks be used for lifting?

No, the hooks are only intended to bear static loads.  They are normally used to hold cables, wires, hoses, and other work lines off the ground and reduce tripping hazards.
