Keep in mind you will still have to open your pack, unscrew all the 15 or so screws, disconnect the battery pack cable and take the lid off completely to get at the back of the screws for the V hook as they have tiny washers and nuts on the inside. Unfortunately the holes don't quite match up with the premade holes on the pack, but the same screws work just fine. As you can see one of the holes can work while the second you can just put a washer on and tighten using the center opening as your screw hole. It tightens perfectly and is solid, just in case I added some glue on the nuts on the back side so they can't slip over time. If you really want overkill you could apply JB weld but it is completely unnecessary. It locks in the wand 100% better than the attached hook and best of all you don't have to do anything to your wands hook, keep it as is!
The ones that came with the haslab pack look alright except i don't trust them at all. one tiny nudge of the wand up by an inch and it'll come right off

Does anyone sell different V hooks I could replace them with but ones with the screw holes in the same places, I'm not looking to mod anything here beyond swapping a v hook or two out. Not sure if the GB Fans ones would switch over or need different screws from what was used on the Hasbro packs.

This magnet option works very well if you’re not going for accuracy https://youtu.be/SGyF4FLolTwMy V-hook will not hold my Version One Spengler Wand so I'm waiting for a San Jamar C927EZ to replace it.
This is pretty similar, if not the same one Adam Savage used in his video, using the same holes/screws.
I have one of these on my Spirit pack modification and it matches up to the Spengler wand (Version One) securely.
