Stainless Gravity Grappling Hook & Recovery Tool
I was skeptical about two things:
- Did it work as billed?
- Would it actually be useful?
The answer to both is a resounding "Yes". Just take a look at this video we made of the "Baby Brother" to this recovery tool. The larger model found purchased on this page works in the exact same manner, but with higher weight capacity:
The thing about this tool, and it is a legitimate tool, is that it has very specific uses for very random situations. It's not like a knife or fire starter (which is why we've placed it in the "For Fun" category in our webstore) -- it's hard to imagine the situation in which you would need this tool, but that's the thing about it: If you do need it, there is no substitution for this tool.
I hope that makes sense.
It's made of stainless steel, likely 304. The durability, as we've tested the product, is holding up just fine with no failures. We used it to ratchet and pull some logs, train branches, and have used the rather powerful magnet to pick up some Conibear traps.
