Foundry Hooks are a type of hook that are usually designed without a latch. These are typically used in applications where there could be a safety risk if humans connect or remove the load from the hook. Foundry Hooks are typically used on chain slings and are designed to have a wide, deep throat to fit trunnions and handles on molds or castings for foundry work, hence the name.
Eye Foundry Hooks have an “eye” at the bottom of the hook for attaching to chain.
