Custom is Standard at E-Z-Hook

In addition to standard parts, E-Z-Hook specializes in custom solutions for test and measurement problems. We design, develop and assemble a large variety of specialized parts and kits to meet our customers specifications and application requirements.


E-Z-Hook custom product capabilities include:


             Design & manufacturing 
             Non-standard lead & cable lengths 
             Special hook bends 
             Molding (client logo, name, or no name branding) 
             Product labeling (hot stamping, heat shrink labels) 


    Certain custom solutions do require minimum order quantities; however product customization features such as custom assemblies and non-standard lengths generally do not have a minimum order requirement. We look forward to working with you to find the perfect solution to your application need.



    Custom Design & Manufacturing:

    Client Industry: Government & Defense

    Requirements: The client had been using one-off modified solutions, many made with existing E-Z-Hook standard products. While the client applications varied the requirements called for a solution that ensured consistent and 100% accurate wire piercing across multiple gauges and insulation types. Due to the various application environments the client required limited metal exposure.

    Solution: E-Z-Hook met with the customer multiple times to understand their various application needs and environments. Utilizing the existing technology employed in our insulation piercing wire clamps (p/n 82-2) E-Z-Hook created a plastic molded piercing product with limited metal exposure and thumb screw secure wire piercing. This XB was assembled into various combinations of test leads and ultimately a lead kit made specifically for the client.
