Henkel Safety Release Hook is designed to allow placement of coats, backpacks, purses, and other articles. Our classroom coat hooks allow for the placement of articles weighing up to 26 lbs. +/- 2 lbs. (11.8 kg. +/- 0.9 kg.) on the hook. When this weight limit is exceeded, the school coat hook automatically releases and the article falls from the hook. Then the HenkelHook™ automatically resets in the upright position.

The Henkel Safety Release Hook  is suited to areas where safety and hygiene are a concern, particularly where children and frail or infirm adults can be present in an unsupervised environment.
