We are always extending our product portfolio in order to bring the widest possible selection of stainless steel fixings and fastenings to our diverse range of customers. A product recently added to our collection is spring hooks which, just like every other item we supply, are guaranteed to be of professional quality and available at a competitive, realistic price.

The spring hook is a versatile component and is often referred to as a 'carabiner'; this is a contraction of the German word 'Karabinerhaken' which simply means 'spring hook'. They were originally designed for use by carbine riflemen as a quick, secure was to attach items to their bandolier, a type of belt.

Spring hooks are a specialised form of shackle. They comprise a metal loop with integral spring-loaded gate, allowing them to be used to reliably and securely connect components of differing types. Ideal for temporary fixing, the connection can be reversed quickly when and as required.

BS Fixings supply spring hooks manufactured from high-quality marine-grade 316 stainless steel, which ensures that they are reliable, durable, lightweight and resistant to corrosion. These qualities make them ideal for outdoor use.

Spring hooks from BS Fixings are sold in packs of five and are currently only available on a 2-day lead time. There are seven different sizes to choose from (M3 x 30, M4 x 40, M5 x 50, M6 x 60, M8 x 80, M10 x 100 and M12 x 140) and prices start from just £2.80 (exc. VAT) per pack. Please note that spring hooks supplied by BS Fixings are NOT suitable for climbing purposes.
