Hooker Harness, Inc. was founded by innovator Jack Hooker. Jack began producing seatbelts and shoulder harnesses in New York in the early 1970's. During the early years Jack produced a variety of harnesses primarily for the aviation industry. Through the years, Hooker Harness has become the most well known and respected producer of Aerobatic seatbelts and shoulder harnesses. The aviation background in harness production provided the foundation for Hooker Harnesses emergence into the racing industry.
The company was founded and maintains a commitment to quality, consistency, and customer service. These strong commitments go hand in hand with an FAA approved quality control system, which is monitored and reviewed by the FAA on a routine basis. The FAA requires Hooker Harness to perform in house routine testing of both materials and finished products. Hooker Harness uses the same quality control system in all forms of production, for both FAA and SFI approved products.
