Description

The Green Pin® Self-Locking Hook E is a grade 8 eye self-locking hook. The self-locking hook locks automatically as soon as it is brought under tension. To release the load the user must manually unlock the hook, which prevents unintended release. This hook brings a full safety for lifting as the latch cannot be removed. The GK hook is a compact, lightweight hook. In comparison to an XL hook, it has the same working load limit, with a smaller size. The eye of the hook can be connected to grade 8 chain with a connecting link, to a webbing with a web sling connector or to a wire rope with a thimble. The flat on the eye enables the assembly with an omega link or on a thimble. The Green Pin® Self-Locking Hook E is available in a range to suit 7/8 mm up to 22 mm grade 8 chain.

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs
How should I use a Green Pin® Replacement kit for self-locking hooks for grade 8 and 10 (VR)?

Please find the user manual here.

Where can I find the Working Load Limit table?

You can find the Working Load Limit tables for Chain Fittings here:

Is it allowed to weld on Green Pin® lifting equipment?

No! Green Pin® products are treated with well designed heat treatment, which results in a certain Minimum Break Load and other specific mechanical properties. These properties will be destroyed by the heat of welding. It even can initiate extreme hard spots and initial cracks, that will decrease the strength and fatigue life dramatically. An exception is made for Green Pin® GH and PAS products, as these need to be welded to a surface to function. For these items, please follow the instructions that are available at Green Pin® sales.
