Capewell Retractable Grappling Hook

hookBatman has one, so why shouldn’t you? Designed by the Army Natick Soldier Center by soldiers… for soldiers. The Capewell Retractable Grappling Hook is the ultimate solution. A smaller hook is also a safer hook: it doesn’t get hung up accidentally while being carried, it can be thrown farther, which offers greater mobility in scaling obstacles, and it affords greater distance in clearing hazards. Grappling hooks have many uses, including gaining entry or providing exit from buildings. For climbing and descending, the user places or tosses the grappling hook onto a roof, through a window or anywhere that catches and secures itself to give the necessary support. The other end of the hook is attached to a rope, which the user climbs or fastens to an item that is to be raised or lowered.

Cost: $150.
