Safest hooks your crew can trust

Reliable lifeboat hooks are important for ensuring that your lifeboat won't launch before you're good and ready. Fear of hook failures has often held crews back from performing necessary drills, and the reputation of lifeboats and rescue craft as a reliable safety measure has suffered.

But with the right hook design, you and your crew don't have to worry.

VIKING offers the world's safest hooks designed and manufactured in-house: VIKING Nadiro Drop-In-Ball hook system and VIKING Norsafe TOR MK2 and K4-D. You choose which suits your lifeboat system best.

VIKING Nadiro Drop-In-Ball hook system

Our unique, patented VIKING Nadiro Drop-In-Ball hook system delivers safer operation, ensuring that no lifeboat can be unintentionally released high above sea level.

VIKING Norsafe TOR MK2 on-load release hook

The TOR MK2 is based on a design that has been the industry standard for 30 years. Specifically set up for ease of use,  the TOR MK2 hook system has been evaluated in line with recent LSA codes, including IMO Res. MSC.320 (89) and MSC.321 (39).

A complete product range is suitable for all sizes of conventional lifeboats.

VIKING Norsafe K4-D off-load release hook

The K4-D and K4-D-FM hooks are designed for single fall lifting. Normally installed on the center console of a rescue boat, they can be installed either as a flat mount solution together with an adaptor plate or without the adaptor plate, fitting into existing lifting foundations.
