How do I choose the right hooks?

Royal Brinkman offers you a full range of tomato hooks. We have supplied tomato hooks to gardeners all over the world for many years and is market leader with the Free Fall Hooks (V-Hook). Combined with our flexibility regarding tomato hooks size, thickness of the twine, the length of the twine, the twine colours and colour combinations, Brinkman supplies them in boxes which can be opened and kept open easily. Our tomato hooks are packed in a way that they can be taken out of the box very easily and fast without getting bundled. Brinkman offers you a solution for each situation and crop (cucumber, tomato, pepper, egg plant). 

Overall most important is the quality and reliability of the tomato hooks, the communication and the delivery. We offer four different hook types. Click here to see our high wire hook configurator.

Tip: put on the subtitles

The V-Hook has two storages of rope: the first storage is located on the high wire hook and the length of the second storage can be determined by yourself and is bound by a rubber band. When hanging the hook the rubber band is being loosened which triggers the fall of the rope. This free fall is accurately measured with an accuracy of 5 cm.

The O-Hook also has two storages with a self-determinated free fall. With the O-Hook the free fall is not triggered by loosing the rubber band, but the rope is wrapped like an O through the storage. When hanging this hook the O-wrapped rope will fall with a single hand movement. This free fall is accurately measured with also an accuracy of 5 cm. 
 High wire hooks
 V-hook, O-hook, Easyhook and HD-hook
The Easy Hook is a high wire hook with a bundle rope which sits together like a ponytail. These high wire hooks are available with or without a free fall. At the same time these high wire hooks can be recycled. The hook will be returned to the manufacturer. When arrived the hook will be cleaned, disinfected and galvanized to make it reusable.

The HD-Hook is a high wire hook with a single rope storage. These high wire hooks don't feature a free fall. These hooks will be hanged between other hooks in front of an extra stem, with a limited rope length to the extra stem. The whole rope is wrapped around the the hook and has to be unwound by hand to get the wanted rope length. 

The hooks are made from special, hardened steel in a special mould, which results in a uniform size and quality. In case you need tomato hooks with Free Fall, you can decide yourself the length of the bundle and the length of the Free Fall. The Free Fall bundle is kept together with an elastic which can be removed easily. The twine then is positioned exactly at the tomato plant and can be connected to the plant.
