Mechanical Specialties cargo hooks are built to last, to keep working for you, day-in and day-out. But in return, they need to be properly maintained, and doing so can get you decades of service from our hooks.
With an average of five-years time between overhauls, and our industry leading turnaround time, you have minimal down-time while maintaining your equipment in optimal operating condition.
When you send your hook to Mechanical Specialties for overhaul, we do a thorough tear-down and inspection, replacing the most common wear points, clean, lubricate and re-assemble your hook to a like-new condition. This is all covered under our base rate, and in most cases are turned around in under 48 hours. If we do find any issues beyond what is covered in the base overhaul, you'll receive a quote for that scope of work to review and approve before we proceed.
