Quick Release
Disc Type Towing Hook
Built around a counter balance disc shaped hook bill,
which on releasing the tow is free to rotate, dissipating
the energy of the tow line, this hook type is common
on vessels built and operating in Europe. The hook
incorporates the required characteristics of all tow
hooks, the ability for release whilst under full load, from
multiple positions, both local and remote.
In addition to the standard build version, the hooks can
carry various extras including the choice of powered
release by pneumatic or hydraulic means. Inclusion of
load cell pins can provide on-hook load information to
the wheelhouse or other suitable monitoring location.
