“THE TREADY HOOK” originated in December of 2009 and a provisional patent was filed with the USPTO on February 4, 2014. The original prototype of “THE TREADY HOOK” has been in service for over 6 years. During that time, it has become the most popular tool on the fire ground for the crews that have one. “THE TREADY HOOK” is made of all steel materials and is currently offered in a 6-foot length and a variety of high-visibility colors. The tubular steel shaft reduces the weight of the tool without compromising its strength. The 4-inch hollow steel ball and solid steel hook, made of 1/4 inch plate, are securely welded to the shaft and are designed to provide a balanced feel. This hook can take a beating!
