This hook has been around for over 25 years of successful service as the "official" hook of the FDNY. Developed by the experience of over 20 years of service in the busiest fire houses in the FDNY, if not the world, during the 1960's and 1970's (the War Years).
The tool was developed with participation by thee New York City Fire Department - Research and Development Division.
The all-purpose head, aircraft steel shaft, chisel end, and celtex grips makes up this unit.
The chisel end is used as a prying tool for scuttle hatches and roof doors. The short lengths are good for going up fire escapes and scuttles to the roof. Accept only aircraft steel for lightweight, but strong tool.
