Norsafe is proud to present the TORMK2, a further development of the long proven TOR MKI Hook. The TOR MK2 is intrinsically safer and includes the safety devices required by operators and regulators. 

The TOR MK2 has been designed specifically for simplicity of use. The yellow padlock, clearly visible on both sides of the hook, indicates that the hook is set and release cables correctly located. The locking mechanism is such that securing pins and fall preventers are not necessary.

The TOR MK2 hook system has been evaluated in line with the LSA code as amended, including IMO Res. MSC.320(89) and MSC.321(39).
