The Hook Balance Gimmick works on a clever application of the basic laws of gravity. If you try to balance the hook supplied on the tip of your finger or any other place by the pointed end, the Hook naturally topples over, and can not be balanced. However, if you take an ordinary belt, fold it in half and sling it over the round part of the hook you can easily balance this hook where ever you please. You can balance it on the tip of your finger or the tip of your nose, or the edge of a table, with a non slippery surface, so that the hook does not slip off. With a little imagination you can get a lot of entertainment from this clever scientific novelty.
