Towing hooks in brief
Reliability - the main feature, which should have a towing hook. Breakage of the cable or unplanned recoil of the hook can lead to disastrous results when towing. This usually occurs due to stormy weather or equipment failures that are not identified on time. Hooks for hooks are usually made from solid billet by casting or forging. They must be foldable and have a special device for the recoil of the cable. Moreover, it should be controlled from at least two points: directly at the hook and from the navigation bridge. It is also desirable to have shock absorbers that can withstand loads of up to 130% of the pull force on the hook.
Safety of working with a towing hook - a priority task. Therefore, all employees must be familiar with safety and comply with the following requirements:
Not to be near a moving cable;
Do not release the cable by hand;
Underlay wooden cushions under the place of abrasion of the cable;
Do not change standard towing configuration
