Kieninger Lyre Pendulum Top-Hook
Kieninger Lyre Pendulum Top-Hook for replacing a broken one. Can also be used to shorten an existing pendulum that is too slow in timekeeping.

Top hook only sold with no screws for the Kieninger lyre pendulums.
Clock Pendulum Top Hooks
Of course, mechanical clock pendulum top hooks replace broken top hooks. Also to build a new pendulum. This is a nice alternative to replacing an entire clock pendulum if the top is broken or missing. The top hook is the very top of the pendulum that will enable the pendulum to hang on the leader. To clarify, the leader is the 4 to 7 inch long bar that drives the pendulum back and forth.
What they fit
In fact, most of the top hooks here fit German post WW2 mechanical pendulum clocks. There are some top hooks that are for or can be used on antique clocks also. It matters only that the pendulum can hang into the air onto the leader and be stable. Antique clock pendulums can use any one of these top hooks if it will do the job.
How to install
The top hook installation is by friction only. Bend the tabs over and use a punch and a hammer to secure it to the wood stick. Another way is to drill starter holes into the top hook and secure with wood screws.
