The design of the hook stem additionally reduces sweep by slowing down the product removal process.

The hook works by requiring a two-handed operation to access product. Customers simply pull the front gate forward and remove product. This function, along with the upturn end of the hook, makes sweeping product very difficult.
The customer activity of pulling the front gate forward also activates the pusher paddle behind the product and moves it forward. Each successive pull of the gate faces the product. This transfers the task of facing merchandise away from store staff and includes it with the normal shopping activity, keeping the product visible and easy for customers to view.
