Product Information:
Snubby is a rigging safety product that was designed to provide a fail-safe attachment anchor point for a hoisting hook when placed in the park position.

A hoisting hook accidentally placed under load when attached to a deck anchor point or handrail could result in anchor failure. In addition, the re-coil under high load could be extremely dangerous for personnel in the immediate area.

Product Specification:

  • Available in 36", 42” and 72” lengths
  • Consists of a web shock absorber encased in a protective sheath and has a web loop and 3" forged ring. The loop can be choked or shackled to an anchor point
  • Designed to progressively tear when 1,500- 1,600 pound pull load is applied - The snubby will open in length 3' 6" until it separates
  • A bright orange web strap will be deployed as it opens to warn the operator or personnel in the immediate area
Step Change in Safety DRILL FLOOR SAFETY MANRIDING GUIDANCE document  contains information for the Safe Securing of Manriding Equipment.
When manriding equipment is not in use, care should be taken to ensure that it is stowed away in a safe and secure manner, to prevent damage, or interference with other operations. There have been incidents where the manriding wire has been caught-up/ broken by other moving equipment such as the blocks. A means of keeping the manriding wire clear of moving equipment is with a hoist anchor point weak-link safety device e.g. a “snubby line”
