The pocket grappling hook was originally built by EOD Robotics, Inc. at the request of a desert warfare operator. He explained his need for a light weight, reusable grappling hook that could be used to snag trip wires or command detonation wires on IEDs in a combat environment. Soon other members of the military saw how useful they were and ordered another production run.
These hooks are not certified for life support activities and should not be used for any life support function. They are designed to pull trip wires and via horizontal use.
As part of your EDC kit these grappling hooks are handy for a multitude of tasks like retrieving objects from difficult to reach places i.e. car keys fallen down a drain!
Versatile: Easy to carry, quick to deploy and quick to stow. Multi-mission capable: Maritime applications, SWAT, EOD, radio telephone operator. Flexible: use it as a specialized grappling hook to remotely capture lines, tear down phone lines, reposition barbed wire emplacements, disrupt wires, move packages and bags, rake and break windows, tear down blinds/curtains in SWAT entry applications. Remove the spikes from the outside and use it to cast a line. This is currently being used by military RTOs (radio telephone operators) to string field expedient HF antennas. Use it as a waterproof storage container to protect important items from water damage (when the spikes are removed).
