Wild, Chaotic, Unencumbered. Derived from ancient naval slang. The hook referred to the anchor. In violent storms, if the anchor would break loose from the seabottom (or break loose from the anchor chain - ref "Off the chain.."), the ship would be uncontrolled, free and wild. Utter chaos. Can you imagine anything more wild than a uncontrolled ship in a hurricane?

To show something is approved, sound as a pound, better than good. Not to be confused with to be let off with something (old phrase).
A hot bird walks past you in a bar. You say "That bird was off the hook".
