As a worldwide manufacturer of hotline 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-in. open hook mounted on a 1 1/4-in. O.D. fiberglass pole that can be used for emergency rescue of injured personnel.
Weighing less than 6 lbs each, the hooks themselves may be purchased with universal end fittings or 1 1/4-in. spliced ends. The hooks can also be purchased attached to fixed-length or telescopic fiberglass poles.
Available in lengths of 6, 8, and 10 ft, the fixed-length Body Rescue Hook Sticks weigh between 7.5 and 9 lbs each. Two telescopic pole options are available, both retracting for easy storage and shipping.
The 6-ft extension weighs 7.2 lbs and retracts to 40.5 in. A longer, 8-ft version retracts to 43.5 in. and weighs 8 lbs.
