How Lynx Hooks work

LYNX Hooks Sport Stretch Straps were designed to do everything bungee cords can’t do, and then go further… way further. It’s all possible because of three things we insisted upon as we developed LYNX:

Why bother with all that, if simple bungee cords are our only competition?
Because our goal, frankly, isn’t just to make a stretch strap we can be proud of.
Our goal is to help ease you through your work and your chores, and get you outside with a minimum of stuff to carry, doing the activities you love the most. That’s your groove.

We’ve been around long enough to notice that the world’s a happier place when people are in their groove, whether it’s the quiet of kicking back in Nature, or the riot of playing hard on outdoor toys. Whichever way you like to unwind, we totally relate.

Lynx Hooks Features Applications
Lynx Hooks System Our patented hooks were engineered to fit the loops, grommets, and bars on most of the stuff everybody uses. This makes them easily adaptable to multiple tasks.
Lynx Hooks System When you need to attach to something that’s too large (See Video: The LYNX Hooks LOOP".) or weird-shaped for a hook, run one LYNX Hook through the loop between the strap and the opposite hook for an absolutely secure connection. That way, you can even link to things like trees and fence posts.
Lynx Hooks System The exacting tolerances of the hooks’ design means they click securely together — you can feel and hear them lock — yet they’ll obediently come apart when (and only when) you tell them to, by pinching the pair in just the right place. This face-to-face connection lets you join two or more straps together in a line, to make a unified strap that's as long as the job requires.

You’ll get that same reassuring click if you interlock the hooks another way: front-to-back. That way, you can create clusters of hooks that turn LYNX into an impromptu cargo net that you can build right on your cargo.

The patented straps themselves are custom made for us by Rok™ Straps, of premium solid rubber, protected in a jacket of the highest quality weather-resistant woven polyester, attached to the same top quality grade of polyester in a non-stretchy webbing. High quality polyester is more expensive than nylon, but it’s worth it because it’s weather-resistant, which means the straps will last longer than old-fashioned bungee cords, even when neglected and left out in the elements. The hybrid construction also means the webbing holds firm while the stout stretch of the rubber absorbs shock and keeps the webbing from jogging loose.

The adjustment buckle built into the webbing allows a maximum length of 45 inches per strap, which can be adjusted all the way down to 19 inches and any length in between.

Lynx Hooks System The buckle includes a quick release, for easy access to your gear without having to unstrap everything. It also allows you to loosen the tension so unhooking is easier and safer.
