Crosby Hook - The Personal Escape Anchor of FDNY

The Crosby Hook is intended to be used as an anchor in an engineered system for firefighter escape applications.

It is constructed of forged alloy steel - quenched and tempered.

The Crosby Hook also has a pointed machined tip and is rated for full Working Load Limit and has a Design Factor of 4.4 to 1 (per NFPA 1983). Each Crosby Hook has a “Product Identification Code” (PIC) for traceability.
