This is one of our most popular, everyday hooks and it comes complete with an installed latch kit which is very user friendly. We use it on wire rope bridles, winch cables and many customers hang it off an excavator bucket using a Crosby G-2130 Bolt Type Shackle
. It does swivel, however it is intended only for load positioning and is not designed to swivel under load. If you need a hook that swivels under load, we recommend the Crosby S-3322B Swivel Bearing Hooks
. Also keep in mind these hooks are not for use with Grade 80 or Grade 100 chain slings. Good alternatives for chain sling swivel hooks would be the Crosby S-13326 Shur-Loc Swivel Hook
, or perhaps the Gunnebo BKLK Swivel Bearing Hooks
...both models rotate under load and have self-closing gates.
