Steel hooks were introduced in 1940. Interesting fact, that aluminum hooks of this type may be found only on "Affe" packs, but it seems that only steel hooks were installed to A-frame. That part of equipment was mass produced when production of aluminum parts was ceased.
The hooks were used in the "universal carrying" system, when the carrying strap (on the soldier's side) had standard rings, and the backpack, bag, etc. (on the cargo side) had standard hooks.
