Product Description

The Rig-Release Remote Releasing Hook will allow you to set loads, and then quickly, efficiently, and safely release the rigging from a safe distance. The Rig-Release simply hooks to your crane or spreader beam. You can then attach the slings(s) directly to the Rig-Release and rig the load. Once the load line is set and the crane line is slack, pull the release rope to release the sling(s). No need for a man lift on site or to have a worker crawl out (or up) just to disconnect sling(s). It's all done from a safe distance.

from Oklahoma asked:
February 5, 2019
Will this release under load? I am looking for a release to do drop testing with, so I need a release that will release under load but provide method to maintain a safe distance for operators.
1 Answer
No, this hook is not designed for that purpose. Rather it is designed so that once the load is set in place, one can release the hook or shackle from the ground and pick a new load, over and over. It removes the need for someone to work at height, rigging and un-rigging the load.
