    For the light stuff, I've been using the little black display hooks that dress-socks come tied to... lighter than mitten hooks, but might not be strong enough for shock cord.

    Works great on my UQ suspension, and let's me hookup over the ridgeline instead of past the whipped end.

    Those are not very strong and the clips do not open very wide so they may not work for applications that a true hook would work... at least that has been my experience.

    And no, I can not recall seeing hooks for that diameter shock cord. I have seen smaller diameter shock cord tied to larger hooks. It kind of works but is not the way you would like it.
