This figure 8 is ideal for rigging aerial silks. It can be used to hang your aerial fabric and secure it to your mounting point.
Made from anodised aluminium this figure 8 is light weight but strong and a great shape to secure silks to. This item has been strength tested with Firetoys aerial silks. The compact design makes this silk hook very portable.
The breaking load limit of this item is 35kN for its intended climbing use. When combined with a Firetoys silk this rig has a working load limit of 168kg (370 lbs).
When rigging silks, make sure you have tied the knot correctly (see picture). Incorrectly tied knots reduce the working load limit of the silks dramatically!
