Sport Hook review and Giveaway!!!!

20 miles on the schedule today.....Done and so, so happy!  This is the first of two 20's I'll be doing.  Next one is in two weeks.

-------------------

A little while back I contacted Marcey over at Sport Hooks aka Heavymetalz to see if I could do a review of one of her products for the blog and my good readers.  For those of you that don't know, Sport Hooks makes hooks to hang your race medals.  Tell me, who does not want to show off their bling to your visitors?  I sure do.  I figure if you're going to hang them, why not make it fun or personalize it a little and have some style?  In addition to Sport Hooks, they also make ornaments and danglers for your car as well as custom jewelry and maps.  They have some really awesome products to choose from on their site.

Marcey was more than happy to send me a sport hook to review.  Here's what she sent me:

See that quality!

Very sturdy hooks

Even a nice finish on the back!

I was very impressed with the quality of this product.  The hanger is made from one piece of metal so there are no messy seams or weld marks on it.   Not only that but the medal is powder coated with a type of material that make it have an even nicer feel and quality to it.  As you can see, the design she sent me was "RUN" with a runner right below it.  She was more than accommodating and asked me what I was looking for so I said anything with "run" on it!

In this case, there are five hooks but it will hold up to 25 race medals.  You could also use it to hang keys, your jackets or hats on it as well.  It can certainly take the weight of anything like that.  In reviewing their website, they have a tremendous amount of choices to pick from.  There are one, five and 10 hook styles.  There are hooks that say marathon, marathon Mom, marathon Dad, believe, run happy, 26.2, 13.1 and so on.  You can even order a custom medal with what you want it to say.  Really a great gift for the runner in your life.

They are also the official licensee of the Rock N Roll series medal hangers so they have some sweet RNR guitar hangers and jewelry.  And if you are into Tri's? - of course they have lots to pick to accommodate the triathlete as well!

Another really great feature is when you fill up all the hooks, you can order an "add on" bar to accommodate even more race medals.  Here's a picture of what that looks like:
Add on!
Great design, huh?

This is a great idea.  It really saves you money in the long run(no pun intended) because you don't have to purchase another design(unless you want another one) ---- you can just add it below your existing design.  Also, check out how they aligned the hooks so that they are not on top of each other - very smart design.

It took me all of 10 minutes to hang my Sport Hook on the wall in my den.  The hanger comes with two screws to hang it.  Here's a picture of it hanging:

And a picture of it with the medals on:

Close up with a few of my medals

My first marathon medal
Of course, I would not recommend hanging just one medal on there especially when you can hang up to 25 medals on this thing - incredible!  They do have one hook medals so you can put that special medal separate if you wanted it.

Sport Hooks was also generous enough to offer a five hook hanger for Detroit Runner to give away.  One lucky winner will be able to pick a hanger from their website.  Sweet!!!  Ok, so here are the rules and please pay particular attention to them - if it say's "Mandatory", you must do everything that says mandatory or you will not be qualified to win this awesome product so please make sure you read carefully.  I check everything before a winner is determined at random.
