Grappling Hook Folds Down Flat

Throw a rope, snag an object, and climb… grappling hooks are kind of a fantastical piece of gear that are usually so bulky and impractical you leave them behind. Not anymore.

Grappling Hook

This design, which is currently fund-raising on Kickstarter, is made of two halves that fold flat for easy transport or storage.

The hooks are available in two models. One is 5″x5″x5″ when assembled (5″x5″x3/8″ flat) and holds about 400 pounds.

The small version is 2.5″x2.5″x2.5″ when assembled (2.5″x2.5″x1/8″ flat) and holds about 40 pounds.

They are made from stainless steel. The design is clever, allowing use with either a shackle or simply with cord or webbing.

By nesting the two sides together and sliding a shackle or cord through the hole, the two sides become a single piece.

Grappling hooks are niche items for sure, but this one is pretty darned cool if you want to load it in with other gear and not take up a ton of space.

The small version is just $13, the large is $40, and they are also available with or without cord. If you need to get your ninja on, check them out on Kickstarter now.
