Metal Slotted Loop

Anyone know where to get 1" metal slotted loops?

update: these maybe a proprietary Kifaru creation...

These are ones that Kifaru uses:

I don't think I have seen those before.  Metal loop looks pretty standard, except for the slot.  If you have the capability to cut your own slot, you can try:

http://www.strapworks.com/Anodized_Black_Rounded_Metal_Slides_p/ms-rblk.htm  They also offer powder coating on their stainless steel ones.

I'm not sure of your purpose for these, but here is a different type of 1 inch slotted adapter

Then there is always the G-hook.

Sorry I couldn't help more.  I'll keep an eye out.

Thanks but I'm looking for those ones, or ones like them. I sell the G-hooks on my site, so I'm no stranger to them. I also use tons of standard welded steel loops for my slings. I like this hardware because the strap section is attached to a secondary loop.

Proprietary design. I once toyed with something like this in 1" with a different geometry, kind of like a G-hook with the G replaced by a C.

Have you tried contacting Kifaru directly?  If it is a proprietary design, most companies will part with the part, though not at a price point favorable to general use.

Old pic of UniHook 05.  Those were water jetted from 3/16" 6061.  Newer ones are slimmer, trimmer, laser cut .090" 7075.  Type III Class 1 or 2 anodized to order  :)

I knew I remembered you had some metal hardware designs! Must have been posted on the other forum. I'll send you an email.

How much do they run a piece?
