Hook and Loop Test Fixtures
TestResources’ Hook and Loop Test Fixtures designs are simple and cost effective fixturing solution. They are the ideal solution for components and products that are loops. Hook and loop test fixtures are especially useful for product testing and pulling on circular components such as rubber bands, o-rings belts and much more. We offer a wide selection of options in both standard and custom engineered solutions. All of our hook and loop tensile grips will fit any brand of test machine through the use of an adapter.

Fits Any Brand Test Machine
Our grips and fixtures will fit any brand of test machine. We offer adapters that allow the grips and fixtures to be used on test machines from TestResources, Instron®, MTS®, Tinius Olsen® and every other brand of machine.
Specialized Grips for Samples with Loop, Hoop or Circular Cross Sections
Hook and loop test fixtures come in a variety of hook sizes, rod sizes and radius contact surfaces and are the ideal solution for samples with loop, hook, ring or circular cross sections. These grips make for quick and easy sample loading of tensile test specimen. Specialized motorized hook and loop grips are available and are designed to rotate the sample and distribute stresses over all parts of the sample specimen. Standard and custom grips are available.
Can be Configured to Your Specific Application
Our experienced engineers will work with you to ensure your test system is configured to meet your specific application requirements.
- Belts for motors, conveyors, etc.
- O-rings Pipe or tubing cross sections
- Rubber bands
- Tension-tension cyclic tests
Standard and Custom Engineered Solutions
We offer many standard products as well as custom solutions. However, our modular platform enables us to adjust designs for any application requirement. We understand that every sample can be unique. With this in mind, we offer custom engineered grips to match your specimen with any test force. Through the use of some of our standard elements, we can configure a wide variety of unique solutions without paying a “custom price” or waiting months to receive your order. Our modular platform approach satisfies virtually any application requirement.
Compatible with Different Testing Environments
Hook and loop test fixtures can be constructed of different materials and surface treatments such as stainless steel, titanium and nickel coating. Nickel coated versions can be used inside hot and cold temperature chambers. The nickel coating helps protect the grips from corrosion caused by condensation from the freeze/thaw cycles inside the chamber. It also protects the grips from moisture inside humidity chambers which helps protect the grips from rusting over time. Nickel coated grips or grips made from corrosion resistant materials such as 316 stainless steel or titanium have an important benefit to people whose labs are in humid climates or near coastal areas of the ocean. The stainless steel material protects the grips from corrosion.
There are so many tensile fixtures to choose from it can be overwhelming and you certainly don’t want to make the mistake of selecting the wrong one. Give us a call today to speak to one of our experienced engineers that will work with you to find the exact solution based on your test requirements.
