Safety Hook is designed as a tagline rope safety guide to keep riggers and dogmen from standing under suspended and moving loads. Safety Hook is not a lowering or lifting device.
Typically a tag line hangs from the load and by using the hook to stay further from the load the risk of injury in the event of the load collapsing or unbundling is significantly reduced.
Safety Hook is best used for gathering up the taglines as the loads are lowered into position. The tag lines should be 16mm fibre rope and is used to steer the load as it is moved or lowered into position.
Safety Hook can also be used with the slings and light weight chains that will be secured to a load as they are lowered so the dogman/rigger can stand clear of the load while gathering the tag line as the load is lowered into position.
A further hook which has small teeth is also available on the Safety Hook to provide finder control of ropes and slings as they are lowered.
