Bit OTT, national deal maybe?
The hooks are cast, not pure metal, and do break.
As a matter of interest. Anyone want to buy a second hand one? Just needs a small repair. perhaps a dab of super glue might do it.
I only paid a fiver for mine last week in Tesco in Maryhill, Glasgow

Any pure metal would be useless; too soft. Are you suggesting the cast metal is brittle? Interesting to know that if it is that brittle that it snaps under load.

Not under load, at least from my experience, as long as you have drivers who do not snatch. But were you to drop it on a hard surface, for example the road as you take it from the boot, be prepared to be upset. I would suggest replacing the hooks with hasps(?), the loops with a bar that screws through. (the name escapes me)

A Shackle I would think.

Ah, I see; thanks for that. A stronger or more durable shackle wouldn't add too much to the overall cost either.

Cheers
Shackles, ring, rigid poles. We are talking about cars here?
