Quick Release Towing Hooks enable ships to be towed safely under severe
working conditions. The towing hooks have a quick release mechanism that
allows the towing line to be instantaneously disengaged under full load to
ensure the safety of the tug and personnel. The hook can be released from
the wheel house by pulling the release wire or by pushing a button. At
full safe working load it is possible to release the towing hooks manually,
requiring a load of approximately 15kg.
Remote control systems can be supplied with either a hydraulic or
pneumatic release mechanism. An accurate load monitoring system can
also be incorporated into the towing hooks.
