Cabin hooks are a practical, economical way of making sure windows, interior doors and cupboard doors in homes stay open or closed. This type of hook is also ideal for garden gates that continually swing in the wind or need to be kept closed to ensure that pets are safely enclosed. A cabin hook is an attractive addition to a garden shed door and will prevent the door from flying open during rainy and windy weather. Recreational sailors often install cabin hooks on locker doors in boats to prevent contents from spilling out.
