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..
After the success of the "pocket grappling hook", EOD Robotics, Inc. was asked to produce a even smaller version that can be easily carried and hand thrown or deployed with a fishing rod and affordable by the average soldier.
This is a light weight, reusable grappling hook to be used to snag trip wires or command detonation wires on IEDs in a combat environment. Designed to be small enough to carry, but big enough to complete it's mission.

IMPORTANT: The pocket grappling hook is not designed for life support applications and should not be used for such applications. As with all tools, use with extreme caution. This was designed to snag trip wires in a combat environment, not snag shopping carts full of rocks from a creek or whaling operations. Use the appropriate tool for the task at hand.
A myriad of uses for each size. I keep a pico in my daypack along with some dyneema fishing line to fetch dropped keys from storm drains and such.
Now have all three sizes anmd have found many uses for them
Great quality too
Put it on my neck sling with the tiny anodized lighter, and other batman utility stuff found on this website, and you can deal with numerous unforseen happenings in your endeavor to get through the day. You're ready!
This is a great method of installing temporary longwire radio antennas in the field/for EmCom. It is compact and durable, and doubles as both a gear retrieval item as well as a conversation piece.
And it has the cool factor that you just don't get with a nut tied to the end of a rope. 5 stars just for that!
