*If minimum load weight is not met, safety mechanism will not engage into the LOCK & CAPTURE position.
**If maximum allowable rigging weight is exceeded, unit will remain in the LOCK & CAPTURE position and can not be released.
If the maximum allowable rigging weight needs to be increased, additional springs can be added, refer to the Instruction Manual.

The Rig-Release® Remote Releasing Hook will allow
you to set loads – and then – quickly, efficiently and
safely release the sling from a safe distance. The
Rig-Release® simply hooks to your crane or spreader
beam. Attach the lifting sling(s) directly to the
Rig-Release® and rig the load. Once the load is
set, and the load line is slack, pull the Release Rope
to release the sling(s). No need for a man lift on site
or to have a worker crawl out (or up) just to disconnect
sling(s). It’s all done from a safe distance.
SAFETY FEATURES:
• When the minimum load is applied, the Inner Body
   Assembly sits in the LOCK & CAPTURE position
   and CAN NOT be released.
• Inner Body Assembly only allows slings to release
   when the load line is slack.
• Release Rope has built in Breakaway Chain to prevent
   damage to the Inner Body Assembly.
• Additional springs can be added to accommodate
   heavier sling weights.

The Rig-Release® Remote Releasing Hook with Radio
Remote Control will allow you to set the loads - and then -
quickly, efficiently and safely release the sling from a safe
distance. The Radio Remote feature puts the sling control
at your finger tips. The Rig-Release® simply hooks to your
crane or spreader beam. Attach the lifting sling(s) directly
to the Rig-Release® and rig the load. Once the load is set,
and the load line is slack, activate the Radio Remote Control
to release the sling(s). No need for a man lift on site or to
have a worker crawl out (or up) just to disconnect sling(s).
It’s all done from a safe distance, with the control at the
tip of your fingers.
SAFETY FEATURES:
• Radio activated solenoid is mechanically blocked
   when the unit is under load, preventing load release.
• Two step, two button activation (release) sequence
   prevents inadvertent release signal.
• Transmitter times out in 10 seconds, which prevents
   inadvertent release of rigging.
• The built-in safety features of the Rig-Release® allow
   multiple hooks to be used on the same job site.
• Range up to 400 feet, with clear line of site.
