The Snareweight Pro-Lock is used to secure the Snareweight #5 (or JR Snareweight and earlier Snareweight models #3 & #4) to die-cast hoops. Pro-lock incorporates an arched magnet to attract to the magnet of the Snareweight #5 through the die-cast hoop. It has a slot that Snareweight drops into, then creates a floating lock to secure the damper.
Because of the lock between the two magnets, with even the hardest drum hit it will reset itself and fall back into place with perfect contact/balance to the head- making it impossible to unhinge itself from the hoop unlike other hardware methods that eventually come undone. After more engineering and many more hours of testing – Snareweight have incorporated a couple of side isolation sorbothane dampers for less jitter when used on toms.
PLEASE NOTE – Not suitable for snareweight models #1 and #2.
