The Habitat Hook Store
A tool designed specifically for improving hinge cutting efficiency
The heavy duty option upgrades the hook body to DOM tubing which is about 2 times stronger than the standard tubing which does 2 things: 1) It helps in the sometimes unfortunate event when your Habitat Hook gets hung up on a tree that's being hinged by preventing it from bending, and 2) It is more rigid when pushing on trees in the fully extended position and it doesn't have as much of a bow in the tubing. There is about 1lb of weight added when choosing this option due to the slightly larger wall thickness but it is almost unnoticeable.
- Non-extendable design allows them to be "very light weight" ( Weighs only 6 pounds)
- Excellent alternative when working with smaller trees and the additional length isn't needed
- Fixed length hooks don't have ATV grips
- 7' in length
Compact-Extendable Habitat Hook
- Same great features as the HD extendable model
- New shorter/compact design allows for ease and convenience carrying on a UTV or ATV, yet still gives the option to extend
- Fits easily in the back of a short bed Crew Cab pickup truck
- 3 length adjustments (5 1/2', 7 1/2', and 9 1/2')
- T handle is made from high strength DOM tubing
- Weighs only 8 1/2 lbs
- All made from DOM tubing (Only available in heavy duty model)
Select the model you'd like to purchase from the drop down menu to the left. You can then add the heavy duty option separately if desired.

The Aluminum Habitat Hook (NOW AVAILABLE)
In the beginning of 2017 the Aluminum Habitat Hook was released in both fixed length and extendable models. There was a lot of time invested and obstacles that had to be overcome to get these to meet my functionality standards before releasing them for sale but I feel the design is near perfect.

- Stainless Steel fasteners used to secure teeth
- Soft ATV grips on both models (fixed and extendable)

- Very light weight (Extendable Only 7 1/2 lbs and Fixed Length under 6 lbs!)
- Powder coated Orange
All Habitat Hooks are powder coated as standard with a high gloss finish. Powder Coating is a process where a special blend of Polymers are sprayed (in powder form) onto a metal surface and then baked in an oven at approximately 400 degrees. The polymer powder melts and fuses together over the surface, creating a uniform, hi-gloss, hard shell surface. It is a very durable finish and provides a high resistance to chips, scratches, abrasions, etc.
