Vintage O'Keefe & Merritt Gas Stove HOOK ROD. Works with the spring, cable & hook/rod system for the MAIN OVEN and the left BROILER OVEN Doors on some of the larger OK&M models. As with springs, these are hardened steel - do not try to bend, they will break.
If your stove oven door uses a cable and spring on the underside, this is the "hook" part of the system for EACH side of your oven doors. It attaches to the cable, then to the oven door hinge arm. (for proper door function it is a good idea when replacing springs to replace both springs to maintain equal and proper tension to prevent heat loss and heat burn on your white porcelain enameled door edges)
