Finally an ergonomic spring hook! This is based on an idea I got from technician Lou Carlini. The flat rectangular profile allows it to sit in the hand without requiring the tension that a round spring hook does. We laser cut these from stainless steel and then harden them. Lastly, we slip on a foam rubber grip. The geometry on one side is for smaller instruments (including oboe & piccolo), the other side for saxes.
“Your spring hook is now mandatory for all CIOMIT students; about the most perfect design I have ever seen or used. A simple thing, but other than my screw drivers, I use it the most. Nice work Jeff.”
