Jamming Grapnel


The Jamming Grapnel can be used as part of a longer grapnel train for clearing the route prior to laying a cable or recovering a subsea cable.

It typically consists of four jamming hooks connected together using coupling links, with the hooks positioned at 90 degrees to each other. As the name suggests the grapnel relies on the cable which is trying to be recovered, getting jammed in the hook, opening securing it in place before recovering. It can be used with cables of a minimum diameter of 14mm as a guide.
