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.
I can't believe how small the Pico version is, and it's exactly what you need for little things like snagging keys, or wrapping cord around a branch to suspend a gravity bag.
I purchased the small one for fishing/hunting - to retrieve line from limb by the pond or pack froma tree stand ...it seemed way smaller than i imagined but went in the emergency kit anyway...then i got the next size up thinking it should be perfect...still smaller than i imagined but fit the bill...
Ended up getting the big one to complete the set as i imagined i could pull some limbs low enough with it to cut shooting lanes for my stands...
I imagine ill use em all eventually.
... throwing a light line. This thing is tiny. But it is well made and has sufficient weight to be useful.
Well made, Part of my emergency bugout supplies. Plan on getting one of the smaller pocket sized ones for my EDC kit.
