Gardner Covert Hook Aligners
Covert Hook Aligners have been developed by Gardner to improve and enhance the effectiveness of many rigs
without being large and bulky. An important consideration when it comes to hooking mechanisms that it seems
has been overlooked by our competitors!
How do they work?
The size, length and angle of the kicker has been specified so that they force the hook to twist more aggressively
when the hook bait has been mouthed or inhaled by a feeding carp. Because of this rigs that incorporate a Hook
Aligner on the hook will react faster and hook holds will be positioned in the bottom lip or scissors. These hook
aligners also ensure that the hook twists effectively which ever direction the fish approaches the hookbait.
This means you will hook and land more fish…
Use them with a wide variety of rigs and with almost any soft hooklink, whether that is monofilament,
braided or skinned hooklinks.
Covert Hook Aligners are quick and easy to use – without need to steam, shrink or shape before use!
Just follow these simple steps:
Thread the Hook Aligner onto the hooklink using a baiting needle. We find it is easiest with a braided hair needle
as it doesn’t catch pulling through the rubber compound used in their manufacture. Position the Hook Aligner
(as shown on the diagram) by pushing the hook aligner up over the hook eye.
*To ensure that rigs incorporating the hook aligners work to their full potential always make sure that the curve
of the Hook Aligner faces inwards lining up with the hook point.
Hook Aligners are currently available in C-Thru Green, C-Thru Brown and Black (Silt).
Large Hook Aligners are best suited for use with size 2 to 6 hooks.
Small Hook Aligners are designed to work with hook sizes 8 to 12 hooks.

These are pretty good kickers. The large ones do work on size 2-6 hooks as I've tested but word of advice, if you're putting it on a #2 hook and you've used a thicker hooklink you'll have a hard time managing to thread it through the knot which is very inconvenient. Tested using dacron line on a size 2, couldn't thread it through at all. Bear that in mind when choosing these kickers
A definite edge.
