Holdfast – The Net Hook Revolution

Matthew Harrod

MH Goals are proud to announce the launch of the Holdfast Net Hook – the biggest change in net hook design for a decade.

Holdfast Net Hook


Football goal net hooks are one of the most commonly used items in the game and never a day passes without a groundsman, player or volunteer twisting and turning them into an aluminium goal. The design has remained unchanged for many years. Until now.

With the introduction of the new BSEN16579:2018 standard, the current net hook system needed changing as the chances of finger entrapment in the aluminium channels and limb entrapment from unattached netting are too high.

To replace it we have designed the Holdfast Net Hook system. By clamping the net into the channel of the aluminium it not only reduces the chance of limb and head entrapment but also makes the hook far stronger and less likely to come out.

Our new Holdfast Net Hook works in harmony with any of MH Goals new BSEN16579 conforming 100mm and 80mm aluminium football range and is a huge improvement over the old enclosed hook.

By redesigning our aluminium goals from the ground up we have been able to incorporate the net and the Holdfast hook into the body of the aluminium giving a stronger and more durable fixing. Unlike other net hooks the Holdfast system clamps the net into the bespoke channel of our aluminium goals which keeps the net neat and tidy.

The Holdfast Net Hook is made from hard wearing UV protected nylon and made right here in the UK.

The new Holdfast system has been rolled out across our entire aluminium football range so that everyone from Premier League to grassroots clubs can benefit from this innovative new system. Get in touch with us if you have any questions or need free advice on this, or any other safety issue.
