Within the general scope defined in Section I, ASME B30.10 applies to all types of hooks shown in Figs. 1 through 21 used in conjunction with equipment described in other volumes of the B30 Standard. Hooks supporting a load in a direct-pull configuration, with the load carried in the base (bowl/saddle or pin hole - see Figs. 3 and 4) of the hook, are covered in Chapter 10-1. Hooks that do not support a load in a direct pull configuration are covered in Chapter 10-2.
