The Active Hands Hook aids are designed to enable you to grip and release equipment mostly in the gym or as part of exercise activity. This pair of Hook Aids have been designed to be used on bars, machines with bar type handles, and some types of handlebars on bikes or hand bikes.
They are produced with a cleverly shaped strong stainless steel double hook, which gives stability when under tension and a pulling force that feels great and mimics a “real grip” feel when in use. The metal hooks have a thin v-shaped section as part of their design with an elastic loop attached.
This innovative elastic loop is placed around a finger and prevents the hook from flopping down under its own weight when grabbing a bar overhead or when your arms are forward. This makes the Hook aid more versatile than existing hook devices, which only perform well when lifting upwards from the ground.
