Description  Snaphook Set for US Cavalry M1902 Picket Rope or Lariat
Price $ 35.00

Original pair of US Cavalry issue iron snaphooks with oval rings as secured to each end of the M1902 Picket Rope. Each individual assembly consists of an S-hook with a spring steel tongue riveted in one end and an oval iron ring with a free-moving channeled ferrule clinched in the other. The cotton sashcord which ran between the two rings was wrapped around the ferrule then secured with a flat iron clinch ring--see Ordnance Memorandum No. 1719--to create a completed lariat. This pair requires refinishing prior to use. Impossible to find on the loose.
