This replacement Cant Hook handle fits Dixie Cant Hooks using 2-1/2'' and 2-1/4" diameter handles.
Hickory is the hardest and strongest wood found in North America. Its abundance for commercial availability is 2.2% of total U.S. hardwoods.
Well known for its strength and shock-resistant properties, Hickory is extremely tough, resilient, even-textured, very hard and rated only moderately heavy - providing excellent strength-to-weight ratios. Handles made of Hickory will outlast and out-perform other hardwoods for years of reliable service. Scientific tests for toughness performed by the USDA Forest Service show that Hickory is 47% stronger than Maple.*
With a strict quality standard, Dixie Industries always has, and always will use White Hickory for the wood handles.
Maple, also a hardwood, has good strength properties, but dries slowly with high shrinkage and can be susceptible to movement in performance. Maple’s abundance for commercial availability is 4% of total U.S. hardwoods - making it a cheaper alternative to Hickory.
NOTE: This product includes a replacement handle only. The hook is not included in this product.
