This one will do, particularly if you’re hanging up something substantial, and you need a hook that looks sort of like a question mark. Brass-plated steel, 4-3/4” long with a 1” ID and made from 3/8” stock. The last 2-1/4” have a 3/8-16 thread waiting for a nut you could find in any hardware store.
Large plastic hook, pointed on one end, blunt on the other. We have no idea what it was made for. Some suggest a meat hook in a pet food factory, which the shape supports. But the red or white plastic suggests not. Maybe it is for veggies? A loyal reader is convinced that it goes over a door and bananas are hung from it. Sounds good to us. The blunt end is shaped to hang over a square beam, 1-1/4" or so thick. The other pointy end, when the hook is so hung, will be 3" from the beam top, and will point out 3" and up @ about 15°. The whole is made of 3/8" dia plastic rod. You figure out what to do with it.
A rubber grommet, 7/8" dia x 11/16" thick, with a brass insert that
forms a flange over one face and lines about 3/4" of the length of the
1/4" dia bore. Use it as a grommet, a shock mount, or both. With a brass wire hanger that is set under the insert flange and
extends 1" to the side. The hanger is bent to hold a 1/4" dia wire.
In big quantities. And dirt cheap. The dark brown plastic, 1-11/16" squares with one corner cut off at a 45° angle are approx 1/16" thick, with a raised center square, a 9/16" hole in the center, and peel-off really-self-adhesive backing. For art projects, air vents for snake cages, wall plates for cable runs, or something. Please.
If there's a sucker born every minute, here's a half-hour's production for less than a dime apiece. Each of these black-rubber suction cups is 1-3/6" dia with a 5/16" dia protuberance. The mammillated suction cups were intended to hold cell phones, but they have a groove that will hold a loop of nylon filament - and whatever dangles on the end of it - like a champ.
Now you can have a good, strong hook without drilling any holes. This plated magnetic hook sticks to any ferrous metal surface via a 2" dia alnico magnet with a 10-12 pound pull. Handy gadget to hold a tool, towel, broom or key ring (and if the ring is too heavy, consider throwing away the keys to your 1983 Chevy, and maybe a few more). The 3/4" long J-hooks have threaded ends and are removable. Our each is a package of (2).
This zinc-plated carbon steel clevis grab hook is rated Grade 43 with a 2,600-lb load limit (that's about a Mini Cooper hatchback). Measures 3" long x 1-7/8" at the wide part x 1/2" at the thick part, with a 3/8" axle held with a cotter pin. Clearance from hood to axle is also 3/8".
Sometimes the sum of the parts is greater than the whole. (Better write that down.) This sign-less sign kit includes (6) humongous cable ties at 53" x 3/8", (12) at 7-1/2" x 3/32", (8) 1" double-sided foam tape squares, (8) more at 3" square, (12) 3/16" dia clear plastic bolts and nuts, and (4) 18" x 2-1/4" foam-core pieces.
