Hello, my name is Kevin Nay and I am a career Lt. in the Chicago suburbs. I started Hook N Ladder Leather in 2015 with the intent to have a side job that would allow me to work with my hands, spend more time at home, and create things that I could be proud of. I would have never imagined it would take off as it has. In that time I have learned a lot about what it takes to build a quality leather product that will truly serve the needs of a working Fireman. Through trial and error, experimentation and feedback from fellow Firemen my products have evolved to where they are now, particularly with the "Plug Ugly" Radio Harness system.
The "Plug Ugly" Radio Harness system is different from every other radio strap on the market in a few different ways. First, the system was designed to be completely adjustable by the wearer to fit their needs and preferences. Through a series of evenly spaced holes on the front of the harness, the length is completely adjustable over all previously offered sizes, and allows for placement of accessories such as mic tab, and cord keeper to fit the wearer.
Secondly, only the highest quality materials are standard, not an upgrade. Stainless steel clasps and buckles are used as they are the most durable offering. Blackened solid brass DOT snaps are used throughout, along with blackened Chicago Screws, all sourced from the US. The leather used is English Bridle Leather. An artist, I am not. A craftsman is what I strive to be.
