  • Hose Hook?

    Can anyone make a suggestion on where to purchase a "hose hook" from?

    By hose hook, I mean one of those solid piece metal hooks that you can use to hoof 2 1/2" hose? The hook is slightly larger then a filled 2 1/2" and gives you a place to grip. When you need to move the hose, you can slide the hook down the hose and pull. It can also be used for various tech rescue applications. I saw a video of one a couple years ago, and I found the patent for it, but I haven't found a (reputable) dealer yet.

    Thanks.

                    I have yet to see one or two memnbers move a charged section or more of LDH, be it 4" or 5". It weighs just too much with that much H2O in it.

                    At best a compnay of 4 or more might move part of that hose.

                    The photo they show has to be an section filled with air!

                    Maybe the only thing you are going to pull is your nads out of place!!!!

                      Check out thebowring.com. When the hoseman on my shift got one, I thought it was a little whackerish and might be something sold by Billy Mays. I generally shy away from anything that "does the job of 12 different tools." However, we put it through it's paces once it was delivered and it was handy enough that it made my Christmas list in 2009. I now carry one with me.

                      It works very well as a hose tool and performs some dozen other tasks decent enough as well. It weighs about 22 ounces and my be the heaviest thing in my bunker pockets -- but I'm not one of the guys that carries an entire Snap-On truck in my pants. It is a near-perfect fit for my pocket. You can tell it was designed by firefighters... Which is another thing it has going for it. The guys selling the tool are actual firefighters and not just some people running a web site.

                        Don't know if it is worth $124.00... I was ready to by one and try it out I even watched all the video's then I went to the order now page and I started laughing.

                          A 12 ft. piece of webbing works just fine, at least for me.

                            Whoa. They must be trying to curb demand or the cost of materials has gone through the roof... I can't remember an exact price, but the Bowring did NOT cost triple-digits when Santa Claus ordered mine last year.
