Miller Lifting Products Announces the Introduction of DIN Hook Latches

Cranes of all types manufactured in Europe and exported to the USA and Canada incorporate forged lifting hooks made to European standards DIN15401 (for single hooks) and DIN15402 (for double hooks), and require unique hook latches designed specifically for DIN standard hooks. DIN standard hooks are found on mobile cranes, overhead cranes, port cranes, offshore cranes, on hook blocks manufactured by European producers, as well as on hook blocks manufactured by Miller Lifting Products. Miller Lifting Products is the primary provider of DIN standard hooks in North America. DIN standard hooks are available in capacities from 3 (metric) tons to 1200 (metric) tons. Specifying and locating replacement hook latches for DIN standard hooks is made faster and easier by Miller Lifting.

Replacement safety latches for DIN standard hooks are available from Miller. Miller stocks the complete range of hook latches for single and duplex DIN standard hooks. Miller’s “Latch Kits for Standardized European Shank Hooks” information sheet is available on Miller Lifting Product’s website, This simple information sheet details ordering information and simple instructions on how to determine which latch is needed for a specific hook by hook frame number.
