Metal Detecting Shovel Hooks -Steve Padley

Steve Padley is the inventor of the metal detecting shovel hook and the metal detector support clip.

Steve is a keen metal detector user and he recently found some Roman coins and a brooch.

He noticed that whenever he saw people metal detecting they would have a small shovel in one hand. He realized that there would, therefore, be a niche market for a special-purpose hook.

The universal shovel hook can carry either a T.BAR or D-SHAPE handle shovel.

It enables you to carry your shovel hands free and reduces the chances of picking up false signals.

It is easy to fit - just slide onto your finds belt or any other belt.

When not digging, just hang your shovel onto your shovel hook, freeing up your arm, and reducing arm ache!
