Ductility & Destruction

Ductility: the measure of deformation prior to failure. Notice, the “unnamed” hook failed at 19k pounds with minimal deformation. The Crosby hook held 23k pounds before deformity; it continued to hold the load until it slipped off the hook. This gives the user a better opportunity to catch the overloaded hook prior to failure and prevent complete destruction. Geek stuff!!
