Model Rocket Engine Hooks & Retainers

Metal engine hooks allow quick change of engines. Minisize is for Estes Mini Engines (1.75" long), Standardsize fits all standard 2.75" long Engines (18 mm or 24 mm, Black Powder or Composite), Estes Eis sized to fit the longer Estes E engines (note: our 20/50 Long Centering Rings can be used as a spacer to use a 2.75" 24 mm engine in a mount using the longer hook). "G" hooks are same width and material as our other hooks, but the length and hook section are designed to be used with standard G engines. We recommend the use of the "G" hooks in pairs (one opposite the other). Our 24/29 Long Centering Rings can be used as a spacer ahead of a standard F engine in a mount using the "G" hook.

Retainers are used as a better way to secure a larger motor than just by using masking tape. They are indespensible if using reloads!

Testimonials

I must say that I was very impressed with the WAC Corporal kit I bought from you guys.  The quality of the components, particularly the recovery system, was so much higher than Estes. I had built that rocket when I was a kid, back in 1968, from an Estes kit, and still love the rocket.  Yours is so much better:  the kevlar cord, the way it is attached, and the shock cord are so much better, as is the nose cone.I will be buying other of your scale kits because of this.  I don’t think you do enough to tout the higher quality components.
Thanks for everything. - George P.
