Static Line Snap Hook Assembly w/ Safety Pin and Lanyard
It's the one piece of Airborne equipment that never got to go out the door. You remember how it felt in your hand, the sound it made when you hooked up. We can't get your knees back into the breeze, but we can provide a little bit of nostalgia with our authentic static line snap hook assembly. Culled from government surplus, these snap hooks have been cleaned and restored to their former albeit humble glory.
Tested to be fully functional, but easy there, Airborne - we mean the button depresses, the gate opens and closes, the included authentic (meaning bent to hell) safety pin easily fits in the hole, and the assembly is intact - we DO NOT claim this item to be serviceable for airborne ops.
The longest-serving snap hooks in the Airborne, the MS7120 (and variants) were part of the T10 parachute system which served the Airborne from the early 1950s through its retirement in 2014.
Shipping note - Due to weight, this item doesn't qualify for our standard $4 shipping and ships for $5.56.
