Byam Hooks

Anybody know where I can get about 6 Byam Hooks, the small chrome wall hooks with a square base found in some 70s coaches?

Vintage Trailer Supply says they are discontinued. Inland and Out of Doors Mart don't carry them.

Do you have a picture of these hooks?

Not sure what the Byam hooks look like. Here's a link to a Japanese hardware manufacturer that produces a high end product used in marine applications:
Brackets & Hooks, Angle Brackets, Brackets, Spring Stays, Folding Brackets, Shelf Supports and Standards, Cabinet Holder, Hooks, Magnet Hooks, Frame Hangers

Might also look at some of the marine hardware vendors such as Cruiser Hardware.

That's no good. They will be almost impossible to find. Here is a pic.

Thanks for the pic!

Depending on the size, this looks very similar to what the marine industry calls a "lashing hook" or a small hammock hook (i.e. for those small hammocks used to hold veggies, etc. on a sailboat)

We had similar hooks on a previous sailboat.

West Marine version

I've been looking too. VTS hasn't had them in stock for a while.

West marine has them. Part number 7218878.

West Marine: Home Page

There has to be a much better price somewhere.

How's this

Check SailBoatStuff Marine Hooks - Snap, Gooseneck Hooks, etc.

Looks like Razor Strop Hooks might be the right name.

I just placed an order. I'll let you know how they look.

Thanks, $4.95 is much better than $21.99 each.

I was in Jackson Center in September, and I believe I saw Byam hooks on their shelves.

If anyone was thinking of ordering any "Byam Hooks" from SailBoatStuff they are out of stock and will not be available for 8-10 weeks.

Perhaps, their supplier is the same as Vintage Trailer Supply.
