I've been throwing out some feelers and Googling but I'm having a hard time trying to find a source for these snap hooks - just the hooks. I read the "Build your own sling" thread and had some ideas on some slings of my own, but a few would need the snap hooks and the HK hooks look to be the best style out there. Thanks for any help.

Look here. While they are not "just the hooks", its pretty simple to dissassemble the sling.

It may not be what your looking for, but they carry almost everything else you might need.

Adrenaline ARms in the EE sells HK snap on hooks. Bought 10 from him.

I bought the Tapco slings too a while back. Just modded one of them into a key clip for work. The clips have significant finish wear, but the springs on mine are strong.

Quality wise, the cetme ones are pretty rough. The adrenaline arms ones are better but they don't seem to be as strong or as high quality as the ones that come on Eagle slings. Not sure about the blackhawk ones, never have handled them. I have been using an adrenaline arms hook on a grsc carbine buffer lock plate and so far it has held up. The lock plate wore all the finished off the hook pretty quick, but doesn't seem to have cut into the hook too much.

The ones at DSG Arms look like they are Aluminum. I can get HK hooks locally at Tactical Tailor for $1.50, but they are also aluminum. They work ok, but get pretty beat up by the single point sling mount in a hurry. I've not yet found a source for steel snap hooks other than taking them off G3 slings.

I've had a few dealings with Treetop a few times without issue. Based strictly on price I got a handful from RustyTX and he did me good also.
