I'm thrilled to see the response concerning the awning hook, although there are some people that do not appreciate great literary talent and keep harping upon my elastic shortcomings. I have a few more uses for the hook, specifically to a couple of my friends on the Noreasters who smoke pipes. The tobacco they use was probably picked B4 the civil war and they have difficulty cleaning out their bowl. Well use the HOOK. If your sitting at a picnic table and you look down the end at the last portion of food is sitting all alone on a plate. Well spear it and use the HOOK. While camping this past week I also thought of accessories that would go along with the hook.

1. How about animitation leather scabbard, to tote it around in.?

2. How about a wrist strap so one doesnt drop it.?

3. How about a wooden grip ,custom carved to an individual's hand?

4. A battery pack and clamp on light for use in the dark. or that the whole thing lit up like the swords on Star Wars

I think thats enough for now , lets keep those Ideas coming in so I can start the book.

This is a great thread..very funny.
I think a portion of the book should be devoted to "Places where I have left the hook". We've left one in Arlington, VT, and Lake George, NY.
Does anyone ever find the ones left behind? Or are we the only ones who lose 'em?

Thank you for the compliment Doris, I came up with a few more uses..

1. To prevent losing your hook, put one of those electronic devices on it that makes it chirp when you clap your hands (i.e. car keys). People may think your a little looney going around the CG clapping however.
2. Provide a complete set of removable tips that can be threaded on and off to replace the hook, for various other jobs.

3.The hook can be used on some rigs to open and close your dumping valves if you cant bend and stoop.

4, Affix a clip to the end, to hold one of those electronic pass cards to open gates as some of the CG are now using. and keep the hook in your truck. and when returning to the CG you can reach the reader.

Maybe use that same clip to grap the toll tickets on the Ohio turnpike since they assume that if your 45 feet long you must be 10 feet high also!

After using the hook to displace the "pyramid" in the black tank, wouldn't that be poetic justice to make the toll operator grasp it to put the ticket in it!

Didn't see mentioned that it makes a great walking stick/self-defense weapon, and for the adventuresome types that might need a divining rod, I'll bet it works as good as any of them

Captain Bud,

If you are going to include 6, 9 & 11 please remove 12...

6. Toast marshmallows.

9. Knock apples down from a tree.

ll. Use as a barbecue fork.

12. Stick in your toilet to move things around so that it drains.

The hooker tool is absolutely perfect for releasing the latches that secure the top of my slide-in popup camper. Now instead of having to stand on something to reach them, i just walk around the camper and reach up with the "TOOL" to pull open the latches.

I hate to get serious in this post, but:
I use it to get the folding chairs in and out of the center of my basement.
I use it to open and close the fresh water dump valve, instead of climbing in the compartment to reach it. (I drilled a 3/8 hole in the handle).
I use it to hold down the ribbon you use to pull the awning down..I wrap the ribbon around the rafter once or twice, hook the "hook" through the loop, and lay the whole thing in the rafter. Then I can find it to put the awnings back.
I use it to place (and then get) the heavy nylon blocks I use under the jacks if I'm going to set a long time. Otherwise they sink into asphalt or dirt (slowly).
I let my 3 year old grandson run around whacking things with it. Keeps others from camping too close.

I was wondering what that long hookie thing was for, I knew it was to big to be a key or something, but I had no idea it had so many uses. Maybe I better put it back in my camper before I need it to do who knows what, I kinda thought it was just a real cheesy tire tool LOL
