Quick release mooring hooks
Strainstall's quick release mooring hooks provide safe mooring line release, offering reliable operation within the harshest of marine environments.
Our quick release mooring hooks help to ensure safe operations as well as asset protection in the event of any incident. In oil and gas terminals, their use during cargo handling is recommended by the Oil Companies’ International Marine Forum (OCIMF) and The Society of International Gas Tanker and Terminal Operators (SIGTTO), as they form the basis of a safe mooring system.
Designed to provide ease of installation and maintenance as well as being able to incorporate mooring load monitoring, they can be either free standing or buoy mounted and are supplied as standard or pelican hooks. Optionally, electric, hydraulic or pneumatic remote release systems are available, with an integrated capstan to assist heaving in the mooring lines from the vessel.
The complete range of quick release mooring hooks has been designed to withstand the harshest of marine environments and feature simple release in both manual and remote release units. Standard hooks are available in single, double, triple, quadruple, double back-to-back and quadruple back-to-back. Safe working loads vary from 30 tonnes to 200 tonnes, with proof loads of 1.5 times the safe working load.
