||The leading cause of hook breakage is when a hook lodges sideways against the instrument putting excess torque and pressure on it. Neotech's updated Swivel Hook engages snugly on the instrument's strap ring. It features an alignment pin in the snap mechanism for better rigidity and a molded "fin" that helps the hook remain in the proper vertical position. This design minimizes the chance of the hook becoming lodged sideways and keeps the weight and pressure on the hook in the proper playing position.
