All Material Handling Launches New Hook for Hoist Ranges


All Material Handling (AMH) has unveiled a new self-locking hook for its MA (hand chain) and LA (lever chain) hoists. Self-locking hooks are designed to close by the load being lifted, and opened by a hidden trigger that is protected from snagging by being flush to the surface of the hook.

They are easily assembled into standard bolted hook blocks, allowing complete hook inspection as per ASME B30 safety code. One of the advantages of a self-locking hook is that its latch cannot go missing.

With improvements such as the U.S.-made load chain (U-option) and shipyard hooks (S-option), AMH ensures variety and quality by re-testing all altered hoists in its U.S. service center locations with a re-certification documentation (by serial number). To show the support of U.S.-made product, all hoists with the U-option will also display "USA Load Chain" and "USA Assembled and Tested" stickers.
