ISO 9001:2015 – Constant Improvement

It’s been over two years since we received our ISO 9001:2015 certification. Since that time E-Z-Hook has been through three successful audits.  We are proud of our ongoing improvements that are constantly being implemented across departments.

Constant Improvement | Expect Excellence

We consistently review internal and external feedback to improve our procedures and ensure our customers get not only the best service, but the best quality product.  E-Z-Hook is proud of the effort our team places on adhering and living by the spirit of the ISO 9001:2015 standard.

We like to think our products are certifiably well made – why don’t you give them a try and tell us!

Defense and Security Applications

These handy little devices represent the XB product line created for the defense and security industries. Originally a “modification” to our 82-2 harness board product, these wire piercing devices are fully insulated on the exterior and offer a screw down clamp to ensure a secure and solid connection upon engagement with the wire. Once the XB is hooked on you can rest assured that it isn’t coming off until you decide to physically unclamp the device. The V-grove above the nailbed allows for various sized wire dimensions and ensures they can easily be directed over the wire bed for optimal connection. We understand there is often no room for technician error in the field- and this product was made with that requirement in mind.

The XB parts are available in red, yellow and black with factory installed leads. The most preferred lead is an 18 gauge PVC wire to a shrouded banana plug, but contact us for various connector options. This product is also available as a lead set or kit for specific industry requirements.

Making Products the Old Fashioned Way

Since 1956 E-Z-Hook has been making quality test products and accessories. Sure we have changed, grown, and added product lines. As required we have altered our manufacturing process to ensure our product line adheres to regulations such as REACH, ROHS, and the Dodd-Frank Conflict Mineral Act. We no longer operate out of a personal garage in Kentucky like we did in 1956, but in our own 24,000 square foot manufacturing plant in Arcadia, California. Instead of one person designing and making the products, we have a team of employees, many with over 25 years of experience.

WE HAVE CHANGED. WE HAVE GROWN. WE ARE DIFFERENT………

OR ARE WE REALLY JUST THE SAME?

It caught my attention while I was filing away old marketing materials that our marketing message was the same. How funny. In hearing this you might think, yikes, 60 years and still saying the same thing? Yes, in fact, 60 years and we are still saying the same thing. It’s not because our marketing department has been lazy, or ineffective, or void of fresh ideas. It’s because 60 years ago our marketing focus was on the attributes of our products. Those product attributes haven’t changed, and we are proud of that!

82-1 Harness Board Connector Makes Wire Testing E-Z!

In response to many customer inquiries, E-Z-Hook has developed a new product allowing for quick release of wires after testing.  This new design, our 82-1 series, is based off our popular 82-2 product line.

The 82-2 product has a bed of piercing nails allowing for testing of wire connections without requiring any wire stripping.  The clamp or lever holds the wire against the bed of nails, forcing the needles into the wire so that contact can be made through the insulation.

In many customer applications, the wire being used was already pre-striped. While pre-striped wire can be used with the 82-2, we recognized that the same “insulation piercing” needle bed wasn’t a requirement for positive connectivity. In talking with clients using pre-stripped wire an important feature was easy wire removal after testing. The 82-2 piercing design requires the clamp to be opened or released to free the wire and disengage from the nails. For pre-striped wire ends the nails aren’t needed to create a connection. The individual wires tended to get caught or stuck in the bed of nails, which lengthened the time requirements for the testing process.

“Voila,” the flat pad 82-1 product! We listened to our customer feedback and recognized we could provide a better solution specific to environments using pre-stripped wire. We designed a “flat metal pad” harness connector. This flat metal pad provides contact with the striped wire once the clamp is closed. Unlike the bed of needles, the wire removal from the connection is as easy as simply pulling on the wires. The clamp or lever does not need to be lifted to free the wire. When multiple  wire connections are being tested this new design saves valuable time.

The new harness board connector, 82-1, will be available at the beginning of January, 2016.  Picture coming soon!

Updated Look to our Ever Popular Wall Bracket

New sleak color

New sleak color

We love blue. We use the color throughout our E-Z-Hook website, on our product labels that hang in retail stores, and to add a splash of color to our automotive test lead boxes. We loved the color so much that when we designed wall brackets for holding test leads and cables we had it powder coated in a brillant blue. That was back in the 80’s.

It’s now first quarter of 2014 and we are excited about our wall bracket relaunch. Here is a sneak peak at the new wall bracket. It has the same great design, just a new look. Get ready to see this sleak and sophisticated matte black product available later in the year. Loved the retro blue colored wall bracket? Better get your order in soon as this color will soon be obsolete!

Your project requires special custom cable assemblies with intricate configurations and specifications, but you don’t want to use your engineering department’s precious time to make cable assemblies. Yet, your requirement seems too low of a volume to farm out to a manufacturer of cable assemblies.

Wouldn’t it be great if there were a cable and lead assembly manufacturer out there for whom Custom assemblies were their Standard?
