As we continue to make slings and frames, often we find that a new tool or other piece of gear will really help.
This page is dedicated to those useful items that can make a difference in how easily a rescue can be made successful.

To place an order, go to our ORDER PAGE

Picket Bar

This bar, with a length of 46 inches and weighing about 15 pounds, is designed to be driven with three 1 inch diameter stakes.  The three sleeves on the bar are set at 30 degrees to allow for an elevated load such as a bipod or tripod.  The clevis has a 10,000 pound WLL and is attached behind the first picket, putting this attachment in compression.  The rest of the bar, made of 6061 aluminum, has a tensile yield of at least 50,000 pounds.  We've placed a reflective strip on the sides for better visibility during night operations.

The price on this bar is $186 and can be ordered from:  ORDER PAGE

Ground Stakes

We sell ground stakes to be used for our rescue frames as well as for our picket bar and any other purpose that may be needed for a rescue.  The two sizes we carry are:  18" for the feet of our frames, and 48" for use in picket systems.  In addition, we offer a top safety cap that can be used on the longer stakes that has a reflective band for night visibility and can also help prevent injury should a person fall onto the end of the stake. 

The prices on the stakes and safety cap are on our order form:  ORDER PAGE


Note:  We have to purchase our stakes at retail price from Hogan Tent Stakes.  In addition, we have to pay ground shipping from California.  We add only a couple of dollars to our cost to clean and paint the end yellow.  If you plan to obtain a large number of stakes, it may be preferable to purchase directly from Hogan.  However, we are happy to supply stakes with your purchase.

 

Picket Bar and Ground Stake Combination
(Out the Door!)

For your convenience, we are offering this combo package.  It includes a picket bar,
three ground stakes at 48 inches long each, and three safety caps.  It also includes
UPS Ground Shipping! 
 (Its heavy!)

The price on this Out the Door Combo is $336 and can be ordered from:  ORDER PAGE

 

Swivel

We are offering this swivel as the perfect companion for  use with our tripod and our XXL pulley.  With a 10,000 pound WLL, the ratings match our other equipment.  While this swivel is available from other sources, the one thing we do is replace the screw that holds the safety latch with a rivet.  This prevents the screw from catching on things while preventing the possibility of latch from ever coming loose.

The price on this swivel is currently $178 and can be ordered from:  ORDER PAGE


Stake Extender

This was an accessory requested by one of our customers.  The purpose
of the stake extender is to prevent damage to the frame feet by keeping
the striking hammer away from the the frame.  The top is made of
solid 6061 aluminum and it weighs just a bit over 4 pounds.  While
over time, we expect the top driving surface to flatten somewhat, it
would be no different than the steel punches we use day to day.
We designed this to be used with Hogan Double Headed Stakes.

The price on the Stake Extender is $42 and can be ordered
from our:  ORDER PAGE under Accessories.


XXL Pulley

To the right is our XXL Pulley.  This pulley works well in conjunction with our bipod
and tripod frames to give a much reduced pull required when lifting large animals or
VERY large animals.  With a continuous becket across the bottom, it can be rigged for
ratios from 2:1 up to 10:1.  The pulley has a 10,000 pound working load rating.

The price on a set of two pulleys is $936 and can be ordered by clicking on:
ORDER PAGE and go to Accessories.

of most hay spikes.  The inside diameter is 3 1/2 inches.  Made of
6061 aluminum, this sleeve can be deployed rapidly for a convenient

from coming off the end of the spike if it is accidently turned downward.

Both sleeves have reflective yellow for better night visibility.

Thompson Sleeve for Flat Forks
