Our metal S-hooks are the most popular hooks for tie-downs for a number of reasons. First and foremost, they're versatile. They can be combined with virtually any buckle to make a versatile strap. The curved shape allows more plenty of movement in cases where you want the strapping to be less rigid, yet they still provide a secure hold. Plus, you can make your hooks even more secure by opting for the safety S-hooks, which have a clip at the opening to ensure a better hold. These tie-down strap hooks are often used with ratchet straps and cam straps.
If you need a hook that will lay flat, however, consider getting one of our metal wire hooks instead. They offer excellent grip and are often used to tie down or secure ATV's, bikes, heavy equipment, etc. Metal flat hooks are used in many of the same applications, especially for heavy load strapping. They come with a round eye or square eye, which you can select based on the strap angle you need.
Finally, we have the metal surcingle, which is also known as a hook and eye buckle or cinch buckle. These hooks are a bit different in that they are used as an adjustment point rather than an anchor point. They are often utilized for belts, tie-downs and cargo strapping.
Finding the right tie-down hooks should be easy now that you have this info. Check out all the specs on each product page, where you'll also be able to select the size and finish for your hooks.
