These adjustable Brummel hooks are useful if you need to adjust the length of your speed system quickly or regularly, for example if you fly more than one glider. Simply thread your speed line through the three holes, pass it back through the first loop and it locks off, without the need for a knot.

*Titanal is a metal alloy composed of about 85% aluminium and the rest is zinc, magnesium, copper and zirconium. It's produced by Austria Metall AG or AMAG, the biggest company in the Austrian aluminium industry sector. Commonly used in high performance sports products, particularly snowboards and skis.
Brummel hooks are commonly used in sailing. Finsterwalder's version are manufactured according to the same principle and have been developed especially for paragliding. They serve as a connection between the speed system that is attached to the harness and the glider and are hence why Finsterwalder also call them "speed system hooks". Nearly all paraglider manufacturers use Finstewalder's Brummel hooks for their speed systems.
Although Brummel hooks made from Titanal are lighter than those made of stainless steel, they also have a breaking strength of more than 230 kg. Hooks made from conventional aluminium alloys often do not exhibit a sufficiently high breaking strength.
Finsterwalder's adjustable speed system hooks are suitable for rope diameters from 3 to 5 mm. They allow for the quick and easy adjustment of the speed system's rope length. When the rope is threaded through the hook holes according to the instructions, the adjusted length is reliably fixed.
Sold in pairs.
