Quick Release Towing Hooks

“Our quick release towing hooks allow for immediate disengagement of the towing line which ensures the safety of the towing vessel and the personnel on board”

Our Quick Release Towing Hooks enable ships to be towed safely under severe working conditions, and allow the towing line to be released whether slack or under full safe working load.

The towing hooks have a quick release mechanism that facilitates the instantaneous disengagement of the towing line to ensure the safety of the tug and personnel.

The hook can be released manually or from the wheel house by pulling the release wire or by pushing a button. Remote control systems can be supplied with either a hydraulic or pneumatic release mechanism.

The towing hooks are approved by classification societies and are available from 5 to 200 tonnes. An accurate towing load monitoring system can also be incorporated into the towing hooks.

Key Features:

  • Manual and remote release
  • Hydraulic and pneumatic release option
  • Safe working load up to 200 tonnes
  • Classification society approval

Our quick release towing hooks are ‘project designed’ – we therefore do not include any technical information on this site for these products as they are tailored for your needs. We will discuss your individual technical requirements with you and produce a detailed proposal for your consideration.
