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!

Manufacturing Insulation Piercing Needle Clusters

These needle clusters are used not only in E-Z-Hook products, but sold as raw material components to many of our clients. We even sell them to “competitors” for use in their products! While we are known for finished goods, many of our raw material components are available for sale. Over 20 years ago we started making these needle clusters for our p/n 82-2.

Since then we have developed variations with 23 to 33 needles. These are hand assembled in our plant in California by the thousands.  Contact us to meet your design requirements with our needle cluster technology. This product technology is popular with our Aerospace and Defense clientele.

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!

Got Custom Assemblies?

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?

At E-Z-Hook, we’ve ” got ” your custom assembly ready.

Can’t Find It? Let Us Customize It For You!

Using a standard product from our catalog, our alligator to banana plug patch cord we were able to accommodate a client’s need to run 115 volts with 11 amps and 220 volts with 7.0 amps through a patch cord by providing a larger gauge wire (14AWG)  in place of the standard 18 AWG.

Having various wire gauges in house we can quickly respond to our client’s needs and provide a customized product, made just for them.

At E-Z-Hook, you can have it your way.
