(Needed for Die-Cast hoops)
The Pro-Lock is used to secure the Snareweight #4 or Snareweight Jr. to die cast hoops. Pro-Lock incorporates an arched magnet to attract to the magnet of the Snareweight through the die-cast hoop. It has a slot that the Snareweight drops into which in turn creates a floating lock to secure the damper.
Snareweight #4 with a Pro-Lock is as good as it gets for effective dampening and road-worthy durability. 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 for the damper to unhinge itself from the hoop. After more engineering and many more hours of testing, we have incorporated a couple of side isolation sorbothane dampers for less jitter when used on toms.
Pro-Lock is not designed for Snareweight models #1 (2012) or model #2 (2013).
Note: For those who have purchased Snareweight #3 or #4, the Pro-Lock is all you need to lock to your die-cast hoop - there is no other way.
**Tip** Some drummers have had luck with turning the pro lock on its side as a damper for S-hoops (using a standard insert).
