Re-Hooking with Norsafe TOR MK2

Next generation release and retrieval equipment for lifeboats

As a response to industry concerns, Norsafe has undertaken an extensive process to improve release gear for lifeboats. This targets safety issues, especially the avoidance of a premature release. The work has generated the TOR MK2 ON-Load Release Hook System. Norsafe is proud to present this new concept, a further development of the long proven TOR MKI Hook. The latest TOR MK2 Hook System is intrinsically safer and includes those safety devices required by operators and regulators. The new System has already been well received by Norsafe’s key customers.
