hook it

Definition

Slang

  • verb to leave, run away. The phrase, a variant of ‘hook off’, an earlier and now obsolescent cockney expression, is over 100 years old and is also heard occasionally in the USA. The origin of the hook reference is obscure but may be related to its use to mean anchor (whence the expression to sling one’s hook: to weigh anchor, although this etymology is disputed).
