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.

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 will buy all 3
hard to get out of the tube on the first try - but easy every time after that (i think because of stickiness of internal padding. Super strong, Super small, Extremely well-machined. rope hole is a LITTLE close - could be drilled a little higher so there isn't such a thin piece of metal between the bottom of the screw-on bottom piece and the bottom of the rope hole.
This little grappling hook can go on your keychain and used anytime you need to snag a wire or other various things. I keep the big one in my rescue bag and the smaller one on a secondary keychain in my EDC Bag so it's always with me. Very Compact and includes rubber o-rings for the hooks. Very well made.
Used it to retrieve an item from a swollen , large ditch. Worked very well.
Happy with purchase. Many different uses!
