Our Analysis

Read Amazon Reviews

Users recommend buying the Hercules Hook from a retail store rather than online or by phone through the company. We found a lot of complaints about online sales, particularly outrageous shipping charges and unexpected credit card charges. Some users say they felt tricked into signing up for automatic monthly shipments of Hercules Hooks, and that it's very difficult to stop this once it's activated. Although a free laser level is included as an incentive to buy the hooks online, most users say the laser isn't properly aligned and isn't functional.

 We found the largest number of user-written reviews and ratings of the Hercules Hook at Amazon.com, followed by InfomercialRatings.com. These comments cover the pros and cons very well. An ingenious test of the weight limits at YouTube is also very helpful, while a blogger at The Court Jester criticizes the security provided by one of the websites selling the Hercules Hook.
