  • Hose tool?

    I am looking for the personal tool that can be used to help pull a charged hoseline. (it has the hook to go around the hose with the handle on top) I was wondering if anyone has any feedback it wether it works or not and where you can get them?

      ya... but it seems like the tool would be a little easier to move around and help feed the line?

        Is this what you were looking for? Invented by a guy on a neighboring department: Nicol Hose Hook.

        Guess it comes down to the availability of the tool, how much LDH you have to move, how far you have to move it, etc. I've done it successfully with a 20' section of 2" tubular webbing, but if I had to move 100's of feet of it, or move it more than 10' or so, maybe the hose hook would come in handy....

                  true very true

                  the tool you are talking about sounds like a hose strap but thats for ladders and such if you want something light weight and easy to use (for advanceing) use rope or webing and your body will take the torque and make it easy on you... but if you want a tool that will help you "feed" hose around say corners then the above quote is what I would go with a tool would have to be slid down and pulled then slid again well that takes time......

                        That same 20' section of 2" tubular webbing that I move 5" hose with does the same thing as that Bowring tool, for a fraction of the price. Just my thought...

                          Really? Are you familar with the concept of "Google?"

                          If you have $125 to throw away, they have a website.

                            yes i am somewhat familiar with that google thing. however, it is a little difficult to search for something when you dont know the name of it. thanks for wasting space on here though...
