Gliebe No. 96 Hook Pak Snelled Hook Holder

.

I found this item at an estate sale, a plastic snelled hook holder from the 1950s or 60s. It is a rather clever design, the hooks fit into the v notches on the green end and the lines are held taut by slits in the red rubber washer. The Gliebe #96 Hook Pak weighs about 2 ounces, is only 6 inches long and has slots for 16 snelled hooks.

Quote from a display ad that appeared in the January 1948 edition of Plastics magazine.

Newark Die Company is proud of its role in the cast responsible for the development and manufacture of Hook Pak We designed and produced the master hob and bobbed cavities from which Dillon-Beck Co., Hillside. N. J., molded the parts for the Gliebe Co ., Brooklyn, N. Y., manufacturer of HOOK PAK. The finished product and its accurate, economical manufacture are a tribute to the cooperation and know- how of the three organizations. HOOK PAK is another case history showing how Newark Die Company serves the plastic industry.
