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.
Nice item suitable for retrieval and such.
Connected to 30ft of 550 cord. Multi use tool that packs into a small space.
Hi, I bought and received the medium sized grappling hook and the center section has a bad thread in one of the 3 places to screw them in, all of the spikes screw into the other two openings so it defiantly is the center section, I see no contact or way to advise this and get a good center section
What can I say these things are great. I think I own 8 or so now in the various sizes. I use them for anything in my outdoor gear that I would want to suspend in a tree: hydration bladders, bear bags, etc. I use them as weights for my throw lines and they do a perfect job. I could probably even use one as a pot hook for cooking on a campfire so I’m sure I’ll give that a try this winter. These are great and the uses are only limited by your imagination.
I got the micro, it is perfect when attached to 550 cord or kevlar cord. It has sufficient mass to function as designed and can be filled with sand/shot to up the heft. Solid machining, includes a foam pad to silence the arms when stowed should you engage in nefarious or practical tasks. I'd imagine it's great for trip wires, but my AO isn't known for clan labs or mine fields. Perhaps a scenario is in order.
