In which color are saxholders available? All parts of saxholder, including cord are black, only the eye of the hook is bare metal.

How secure is the hook? The common available plastic hooks are assembled from multiple parts, this connection can solve or break. Most of the available cast metal hooks are inherently brittle and can break. Hooks made from bare metal have the disadvantage that they have a lot of friction in the attachment of the instrument, which wear out over the time. Hook from saxholder is made of stainless steel, with high performance plastic coating. This is the safest and most effective combination. The cord is made of highly durable, scrub resistant Dyneema cord, breaking load is 250 kg (!)
