Safe Lock Gate Hook T-316 – Stainless, safe, inexpensive design, the practical sailor is called a “well engineered hunk of metal”. Adjusts in place with knurled nut, stamped metal construction – 3-3/4” long from end of body to inside bearing point of hook.

Stanchion Terminals

Stanchion terminals are used where the cable needs to be terminated at the stanchion.

Gate Eyes

Swivel, Interlocking Gate Eye – An interlocking gate eye is used at the opposite end of the gate hook as a “hinge” for the gate.

Swivel, Single Gate Eye – A single eye is used on one end of the gate area to attach the gate hook.


Tubular Slotted Turnbuckle  – Unique design features a slot with wraparound rings which fit through a cross-hole in terminal for secure locking. T-316 stainless steel.
