When picking up collars from horizontal, the integral swivel allows the lifting hook to be placed directly into the liftsub without risk of the sub backing out from the collar.

(Whether it be 9m collars or short subs – any rotation or roll when a tool is being lifted can act to back off the connection ie. The tool rotates but the nubbin is held firm by the load)

By removing the rotational force on the liftsub connection, lower torquing forces can be used with confidence for making up the sub.

Having a dedicated lifting eye eliminates the need for slings and drilling lift caps.

Available with a 2′n1 Tooljoint for the most common DP sizes (5″ and 5 1/2″) – no need to change elevator insert bushings
