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.
Very nice. I like it a lot. It’s what you said it was. What I’d hoped for and expected. Thank you
I purchased the largest of the family of Grappling Hooks County Comm has to offer. I now have a complete set of hooks (Lg, Med, and Small). I live in an urban environment and these come in very handy. I've used this to help string up a clothesline and to rescue a tool bag on the job site. From the city to the sticks this is a valuable tool to always keep on you.
Haven't had the opportunity to save the world with this little thing, but I'm sure it will be just the thing I need some day; provided I remember where I put it.
