A spring hook is a useful tool for pulling or pushing springs into position. They consist of a thin, stainless steel shaft terminated on one or both ends with hooks for attaching or removing springs. Unlike pliers or tweezers, spring hooks do not cause damage to the springs when used.
Spring hooks are used for pushing or pulling springs into position in restricted areas that fingers can't access. Other uses of spring hooks include directing or retrieving wiring, retrieval of small parts in restrictive areas and removing O-Rings. Spring hooks are often used by electronics engineers, jewellery makers and model makers.
Spring hooks are available with different pulling capacities with heavy-duty spring hooks having the highest capacity. Spring hooks are also available in different lengths and some can be extended in length by using extension pieces.
