Body Rescue Hooks

 |  Kate Wade  |  ,

As a worldwide manufacturer of hot-line tools and equipment, Hastings understands that every day has the potential to bring the unexpected to lineworkers. That is why Hastings designs every product, including its Body Rescue Hook products, with safety in mind.

Body Rescue Hooks are available in a variety of configurations and lengths. The basis of each product variation is an 18-inch open hook mounted on a 1 1/4-inch O.D. fiberglass pole that can be used for emergency rescue of injured personnel.

Weighing fewer than 6 pounds each, the hooks themselves may be purchased with universal end fittings or 1 1/4-inch spliced ends.

The hooks can also be purchased attached to fixed-length or telescopic fiberglass poles. Available in lengths of 6, 8 and 10 feet, the fixed-length Body Rescue Hook Sticks weigh between 7.5 and 9 pounds each.

Two telescopic pole options are available, both retracting for easy storage and shipping. The 6-foot extension weighs 7.2 pounds and retracts to 40.5 inches. A longer, 8-foot version retracts to 43.5 inches and weighs 8 pounds.

Additional product information is available on page 114 of Hastings’ online catalog.
