|Hook||Appropriate For||Break Strength*|
|Swivel hook||Popular option with closed design. Great for students as it offers added security. Strong enough to even carry a Baritone Sax.||Hook breaks at about 125 pounds (56 kg).|
|Open hook||Ideal for musicians doubling. This non-marring glass-filled plastic hook is a very durable open hook design.||Hook breaks at about 75 pounds (34 kg).|
|Plastic-covered metal hook||Ideal for instruments with small eyelets, i.e. clarinet, English horn, oboe, bassoon, etc. Also great for quick instrument changes at gigs.||Hook starts to bend open at about 75 pounds (34 kg).|
* All break strengths are static loads measured in tension. Side loading on any of the hooks can reduce the break strength substantially.
