The ejectable gaffs are not designed to lift the piece but to keep it immobile near the boat and help it to be lifted with a crane.
After being nailed, the handle must be unhooked from the boat hook and this must be kept with a rope tied to the boat in order to raise the catch to the boat by means of a crane tied by the tail of the catch.
Our solid steel ejection anchoring system is carried out in 3 movements, having to be released after the piece is nailed.
The 16 mm ejection hooks are recommended for catches up to 500 kg as long as they are raised on the boat by crane.
The barb what prevents the piece from escaping once nailed. It has the positive part that it considerably increases our effectiveness but requires greater dexterity on the part of the fisherman since in case of being nailed in an inappropriate area it is very difficult to unhook the hook for a new nail since it requires a knife to release the fish.
The AISI 316 marine stainless steel alloyed with molybdenum gives our gaffs an unmatched resistance to salt water corrosion and prevents the appearance of the dreaded rust pitting that occurs over time in other types of steels.
In addition, the cold bending system that we carry out in our production process gives it extra resistance, since it avoids the loss of temper and the evaporation of the chromium and nickel present in our steel, which are essential for the correct conservation of the hook as it passes of the years.
The anchoring system to the handle by means of a tube is considered the best since it prevents fractures in the wood from occurring, in addition to protecting it from the typical blows of fish fighting, which over time end up damaging the handle and they tend to break.
One of the weak points of the hooks is usually the welding of the rod to the tube since it opens and causes problems over time. In our case we have made a solid weld that makes it totally impossible for the hook to release from the tube.
All our hooks are bent at an angle of 180 degrees, which gives them great resistance to a vertical weight, being superior to the hooks bent at other angles and therefore it is more difficult for a heavy weight catch to bend the hooks.
The hook includes 2 holes for anchoring to the pole in the shape of a cross for greater resistance of the wood.

* The measurements may vary slightly since the hooks are made by hand.
The stainless steel tube for the pole can be chosen from the following measurements:
Tube Outside diameter Inside diameter
#4 35mm 32mm
#5 38mm 35mm
* The choice of the tube must be made at the time of ordering in the “Order notes” section, right at the end of filling in the personal data. In the event that the client does not choose any tube, a hook will be sent with a #4 tube.
* The manufacturing time of the boat hook will be 5 days from the receipt of the order.
Includes 2 screws, 2 nuts and 4 washers of A4 quality stainless steel measure M6.
The hook is shipped without the handle because the shipping cost would be very high and you can get a quality pole for a very low cost in any hardware or carpentry store.
Warranty: 50 years.
