    'S' Hooks

    Hi All,

    We have a Thread on 'C' Hooks - but I wanted to get the ball rolling on the subject of 'S' Hooks.
    Whilst some may find these 'S' Hooks less interesting than the 'C' Hooks, I think they are still an important part of Panzer and Equipment Recovery.

    I'm still waiting for my first 'S' Hook to arrive in the post - once here I will post Pictures and information.

    So what I would like to see is plenty of pictures of your 'S' Hook collection - but also some Technical info on their:
    Size - Length, Width, Thickness - and Weight etc.

    Also lets see if we can find more photos of 'S' Hooks in use.
    Here are a few to get started.











    Kind regards,

    Pete.

    My First S-Hook

    Hi All,

    My first S-Hook arrived in the post today from Russia.

    Needs a good clean-up first and will then post pictures with dimensions and weight.







    My Second smaller S-Hook should arrive over the next week or so and will post pictures of that one once it gets here.

    Here are a few more S-Hook Photos.







    Will post a few more on my next visit

    Kind regards,
    Pete.

      Nice one. Seems to be for a lighter vehicle than a StuG III. I'd say it could be for a SdKfz 251 or so. I'll try to find some pics of my S hook. I believe I posted it in the C hook thread.

        Thanks for the input Carles,

        If you don't mind - Please repost/copy your S Hook stuff to here.

        I'm not sure what type of vehicle or equipment my S Hook came off so the more factual info I can get about it the better.

        Kind regards,
        Pete.

                  Hi Carles,

                  I know you said that your 'S' Hook is around 6.5kg but how Long and Wide is it please?

                  Kind regards,

                  Pete.

                    Hello Pete,

                    Sorry, I couldn't remember where my panzer items were. Here, dimensions, as requested. Your second hook might be smaller but stronger, for sure.

                      Thanks for that Carles,

                      No need to apologize - I forgot to add the cross hook measurement that you have put on your 'S' HooK - so here it is:



                      My Smaller 'S' Hook is coming along nicely - a few more days in the Vinegar bath and it will be ready for my Wife to polish it



                      Kind regards,

                      Pete.

                          More Photos

                          Now here is an Interesting Photo



                          One Large, and two of the Smaller Ones on the same Stug.

                          I'm beginning to feel like an 'S' Hook Nerd - here are some more photos:









                          I'm on the lookout for the 28cm to 30cm Size, 6.5kg 'S' Hook.
                          So if you are looking at parting with one that you have then please let me know.

                          Kind regards,

                          Pete.

                            'S' Hook Serial Number or Manufacturers Stamp ?

                            Hi All,

                            Found this for sale on Relics WW2 Site - http://relicsww2.com/index.php?route...product_id=520



                            I have come across some Letters/Numbers on the occasional 'C' Hooks, but this is the first time I have seen one on an 'S'Hook.

                            Is this an 'S' Hook Serial Number or Manufacturers Stamp
                            My 'S' Hooks are fairly pitted but I will take a closer look to see if I can find anything.

                            If yours have any markings then please let us know - better still, post some pictures

                            Kind regards,

                            Pete.
