Liferaft / Rescue Boat Hook PX01

The T-ISS Liferaft / Rescue boat hook PX01 is a combined automatic release hook which can handle rescue boats and liferafts up to a safe working load of 35 kN. This hook can be used for rescue boats with a davit load less than 3500 kg and/or a davit launched liferaft up to 40 pax. The PX01 release hook has two modes of operation to allow for safe evacuation regardless of the conditions:

  1. Automatic release when the craft enters the water
  2. Manual release when waterborne if auto-release is not possible due to added load on the reserve boat while being towed or when sea conditions are bad

Benefits & Features

The PX01 will increase safety, as the crew only need to familiarize themselves with one hook, instead of two. There is no second hook, dangerously swinging around when lowering. In distress situations the crew will instantly know which hook to use, as there is only one hook. The most economical solution, why buy two hooks if one is sufficient?
