If you fancy owning your very own high performance grappling hook to be able to grab on to things, you may be interested in the Gravity Hook created by Brent Garcia, although he hasn’t stated as yet how much weight the final hook would be able to take.
The Gravity Hook will be available in either Stainless Steel or Black Delrin polymer and includes pivotable arms that allow it to grab onto items when pulled.
The Gravity Hook project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $3,200 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
“Two years ago I created Fish Bone Knotless Gear Tie. Thanks to backer feedback, we (my brother Eldrick and I) went on to present other projects like Piranha, Neo Web, and Diesel Fish (see all our projects our profile). Since then we’ve learned more and more from our backers, perfect strangers, and everyone in between.Our passion is in making cool outdoor gear.
There is more to it then you see at first glance. Since the parts interact with each other clearances have to be kept without losing function. Also, since the assembly is symmetrical, making curves flow with overlapping parts took time. With your support the stainless steel version will be cut with a 4000 watt laser and stone washed. I can’t wait to show it to you.
We want to make this as awesome as possible. Some ideas I have in the works include: creating a magnetic attachment, designing a secondary purpose for the cross hook, and producing an extra large version. Each prototype has a cost and we’ll go through a few before we’re done. “
So if you think Gravity Hook is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help Gravity Hook become a reality.
