Coupler Hooks
« on: December 02, 2022, 21:03:09 »
I found these on Etsy. I have a few with broken hooks and these seem to work well. I can’t speak to durability, but the fit and function is great. The guys username on there is 3DSolutions1 and he’s based in Germany.

I am no expert on PM trains, but someone else will no doubt confirm my suspicion that those ARE Playmobil train hitches, of an earlier design. But perhaps you already knew that, batrugger?

Das sind die "alten" Federhaken, richtig. Allerdings vermute ich angesichts des Verkäufernamens, daß es sich um 3D-Drucke handelt. Ich wüßte nicht, daß es die alten Haken noch offiziell zu kaufen gibt.

That's the old sprung hooks. Right so far. Save these aren't available for sale as original Playmobil products - as far as I know. So I daresay they're 3D printed.

Good to know that they work

I also need a lot of them and plan on 3D printing them eventually

Yes, they are 3D printed. Some of the cars I have use the older hooks and I haven’t been able to find the newer hooks to swap them out, so these will work and the price is right.
