Brummel hooks are commonly used in sailing. Finsterwalder's speed system hook's 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 also called speed system hook's. Nearly all paraglider manufacturers use Finstewalder's speed system hook's.
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.
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.
