Title: SELF-CLOSING, SINGLE LOOP HOOK
Abstract:
A self-closing hook with a gate configured to allow full access to the interior, capture area of the hook is contemplated. The gate may swing inwardly into in a notch on the hook body, or a biasing, winged gate can swing outwardly. In either instance, the object to be captured rests in and may completely fill the capture area without impeding the closing action of the gate.
