Black hook screw hook
Black hook screw hook. You are looking at our 2 inch screw hook. This hook is hand forged on the anvil in the traditional way. Once completed it is whilst hot coated with a natural bees wax.
The purpose of the bees wax is to darken the hook and to seal it. This is to help prevent rusting. Over a period of time surface rust will appear on the hook this is normal.
As this is a surface mounted hook the installation is straight forward. If you are fixing this hook to shelves we advise that you drill a pilot hole first. A pilot hole of 3 mm is good. If you are going to fix these into beams especially oak, again please drill a pilot hole. If you are wall mounting the hook please look out for water pipes and electric cables.
This small rustic hook has a multitude of uses. The hook can be used both internally and externally. If being used externally it will after a period of tome develop surface rust. This is normal and will not effect the integrity of the hook. You may choose to paint the hook. If you wish to do this a rub down with some wire wool. Then a coat with a good quality rust proof paint will do the job.
We have many other cup hooks on the site. Please take a browse through our hook section.
