I was wondering what materials teams are going to be using on their hooks to add grip. We have 4-3/16 aluminum hooks. I haven’t tested any of these, but we’ve thought of Plasti dipping our hooks, using truck bed liner, or cutting surgical tubing open and using that. I just wanted to see what other teams are going to use or have already tested to stay put on the bar.
We found wrapping the hook in surgical tubing works well. No need to cut it open.
Check out this thread for some more information and examples of non-slip materials that teams are putting on their hooks.
