The release hook meets the high SOLAS standards for off-load release hooks as described in MSC.81 (70) and the applicable LSA code, and is dimensioned to suspend davit-launched liferafts up to 40 persons, and rescue the craft with a davit load not exceeding 3500 kg.

SAVES money
You only need to buy one hook. All the other davit manufacturers will supply you with two hooks, one for the liferaft handling and one for the rescue boat handling. You can consider them twice as expensive.

EASY to use
One hook for two applications. The hook makes it easier to use in the moment of distress due to conjoined purposes of the life rant handling and the rescue bot handling, making it unnecessary for the user to take it in consideration, preventing the endangering their safety.

SAFE for the crew
When deploying a rescue boat, the crew only needs to operate one hook and does not need to worry about being hit in the face by the liferaft hook.
Note: An automatic release hook only weighs ± 7,5 kg.

Explanatory Note
“Off-Load” release mechanisms, fitted for the lifeboats and the automatic release hooks used for liferafts, are designed to be operated (opened) when the load applied to them is removed—i.e. when the boat or raft has been lowered and becomes waterborne.
“On-Load” disengaging gears, fitted in lifeboats and rescue boats, are designed to be operated (opened) when the boat has been lowered and becomes waterborne, whether or not a load is being applied to it by the movement of the ship or the sea.
