PERFECT COMPANION TO AERIAL SILKS

 

A silks hook is our preferred way to rig aerial silks, and we are happy to be able to offer the excellent Prodigy Aerial Silks Hook!

This hook provides an elegant and robust rigging point for your fabrics, specifically designed for aerial silks.

 

It's a fantastic choice when you're in a fixed location and height/travel isn't a consideration. If you need something lightweight for travel, or smaller for low height, you might prefer a Figure 8.

 

HIGH WORKING LOAD

 

The large round barrel of this hook distributes the user's load more broadly along the length of the silks (giving a higher D:d ratio), meaning no one part of your fabric is under more load than the others.

This means your silks will last longer and remain stronger!

The mild steel hooks have a Working Load Limit (WLL) of 300kg. That's based on a 5:1 ratio on permanent deformation, not destruction. We've tested these until they break - that happens upwards of 50kN!

 

The variety of knots available for this hook also means that you can get a much cleaner separation between the two strands of your silk without affecting the working load or risking the silks slipping.

 

EASY TO TIE KNOTS AND VARIETY

 

The variety of knots available for this hook also means that you can get a much cleaner separation between the two strands of your silk without affecting the working load or risking the silks slipping.

It's also easier to tie your knots onto this hook without the risk of damaging your fabric, which can happen with a Figure 8 if you're not careful.

The most common knots for your fabrics with these hooks are a Prusik Hitch (super easy to tie!) and a Clove Hitch. These will give you excellent separation of the fabric and a high WLL we've tested to over 200kg @ 7:1 with Prodigy Silks.

 

You can also use these to rig two different coloured fabrics together very cleanly, rig hammocks/slings, or even shorten your trapeze/ rope (corde lisse)!
