The season is here for the NEW “DANIK HOOK” mini. The durable new universal mini Danik Hook will be debuting at the National Hardware Show in Las Vegas, NV. May 9–11, 2017.

The Original Danik Hook is already a hit with recreational boaters on both SALT and FRESH water to quickly and easily secure anchor or boat lines without ever having to tie a cumbersome knot.

Danik Hook Mini has been found useful and simple to tie-down anything in the backyard, in a vehicle, at the campsite, or at the kid’s sporting events.

Daniel Austin, an avid water skier himself, created the Danik Hook product lines after seeing the necessity of making an annoying task of continually retying knots every time the water level changed.

Everyone comes across a time when they need to secure something with a rope, and the Danik Hook Mini makes the job nearly effortless. The compact size makes it easy to take along.

The quick release lever is the heart of all Danik Hooks.  The Danik Hook Mini accepts Paracord or rope ranging from 5/32 to 3/8 diameter.  The integrated ring makes securing a second line effortless.

Don’t let the “MINI” in The Danik Hook Mini fool you. It is made of a non-corrosive, glass-filled thermoplastic which can lift and hold up to 300 pounds under laboratory conditions.

Existing Danik Hook customers loved the original Danik Hook and asked if there was a smaller one to  anchor Easy-Ups on windy days at their kid’s soccer game; or to tie-down a tarp on the truck or trailer, or to secure an awning, Austin said “they asked and we delivered”

For bigger jobs, the original Danik Hooks are still the “go to” devices for fast and no-hassle tie-downs.

The stainless steel Danik Hook is a quick way to attach any 3/8 to 5/8 inch diameter anchor rope line to secure any size boat or anything else up to 8,000 pounds.  The slightly smaller composite Danik Hook can handle any 3/8 to 7/16 diameter line for anything up to 500 pounds.  Both work well for quickly securing a boat anchor line.

“I’ve seen guys cut and toss their lines due to the knots or other problems,” Austin said.  “The Danik Hook gives you back that precious extra time having fun on the water or beach that you’d usually spend battling your anchor line.”

Danik Hook started out on the water but it has found its home in so many other places!

“Outdoor enthusiasts are always coming up with new uses for the Danik Hook,” said Greg Spangler, Danik Hook national sales manager.

“It’s so simplistic and universal that it’s not just for boats anymore,” Spangler said.

The new Mini Danik Hook is ideal for securing personal watercraft, kayaks, or canoes on vehicles or trailers or at a lake or river.   But Spangler says the Mini or the original Danik Hooks also make quick work of tying-off a tent or hammock between two trees at your favorite campsite, park or in the backyard.  Weekend warriors are using them in their RVs or tying down a load in their pickup truck.

Hunters find the Danik Hook makes it easy for one person to hang and field dress or clean big game.  “It’s tough enough to hold up a trophy buck, or even an elk, out of a marauding bear’s reach,” Spangler said.  “But it’s nimble enough to hang a piñata at a child’s birthday party.”

If you need a rope for something, Spangler and Austin say the Danik Hook makes the task fast and easy.

It used to be only available online by going to, or   However today, ten retailers, such as Overton’s Boating & Watersports in Raleigh and Greenville, North Carolina or California Skier Mastercraft in Lake Elsinore, California, offer the Danik Hook in their stores, said Spangler.   More retailers across the country plan to start offering it soon, he added.

All three Danik Hooks will also be available at the International Boatbuilders Exhibition and Conference (“IBEX”), in Tampa, Florida, September 19-21, 2017.

The new Mini Danik Hook comes in a two-pack for $29.95.  The original stainless steel Danik Hook is $39.95, and the composite, non-scratching, Danik Hook is only $24.95. All have a one year warranty.

Spangler said folks will be hearing a lot more about the Danik Hook on Facebook too.

He also encourages consumers to check out the reviews from Danik Hook customers on, on which more than 90% of buyers give it five stars.  Overton’s customers give Danik Hook 4.7 stars overall, as well as 5 stars for quality and value.

Danik-Hook maintains its own Manufacturing facility in the San Gabriel Valley of Southern California.  Austin made the first prototype in 2007 out of his desire to increase his time skiing on the Colorado River.  He then modified the prototype to make it more functional and adaptable to an array of boats.  Once he was happy with the anchor line hook’s design, he named it after his daughters Danie and Nikki.
