PEAK’s Large Iron Retention System (LIRS) is aimed at solving the problems faced when trying to tie on hooks with large wire diameters and long shanks, which often requires the use of heavy threads. The hardened and tempered tool steel anvil/drawbar combination accepts hook wires up to .134″ in diameter.
The large stable pedestal base included with the JS2-G2 will hold this tool where you place it, and the non-marking feet protect the surface you set it on. For additional stability, the base also comes with two mounting holes that will accept up to 5/16” fasteners to mount the base to your tying bench. The steel base is powder coated white for a surface that will last and provides a backdrop you can see your materials against. The base also includes an integrated hook/bead pocket with rounded edges for ease of removal, and our 3/8″ accessory shaft mounting holes (accessory shaft not included). The base is designed to accommodate the 1/2″ vise riser shaft of the JS series products, which is locked in place with a large comfort-grip hand knob.
