What is a boat hook used for? A boat hook is one of those tools that you don’t realize you need until you don’t have one on board. Of course, most use boat hooks for rope, snagging dock, mooring lines, placing a loop over a piling, or even grabbing a gear bag. When you start thinking about it, a boat hook can be used for many tasks.
Introducing our dock hook, a unique device for picking up and making fast to mooring buoys, etc. by remotely passing the line through an eye, chain, or around an object such as a cable or branch. Also used for installing safety lines to all types of structures, Cables, Buoys, and Ropes.
This tool allows you to pass a line around a pole, stanchion, or mooring—from a distance. It works using an ingenious toggling link that can attach to one side of the forked hook, and then to the other side — automatically.
