NATO STOCK NUMBER: 1385-99-787-3640
This is an extended kit with a range of self-gripping tools and extra ropes for more complicated applications. The range of suction cups make this an especially useful kit when working on vehicles, as these will securely attach themselves to bodywork or glass. The kit comes complete with 2 separate color-coded reels.
LIGHTWEIGHT BOMB TECH KIT
This lightweight hook & line kit includes most of the components used in the larger kits but this kit has been pared down to the minimum for those situations where a light, case-contained, kit is required. If you are interested in this kit please also look at our backpack kits below.
PART NUMBER: HL009700
The NIC Hook and Line system offers a flexible way to achieve almost any movement of a remote object, whether a vehicle door or suspect device. Skilled and experienced operators can achieve outstanding results with just a simple set of tools. However, in order to reduce rigging time whilst in the operational danger area, NIC have developed a range of tools to operate vehicle and building doors, operate locks and shatter windows. NIC were the first company to develop such tools in the late 1980s and this latest generation of entry tools builds on the results of those first systems.
The operational use of this kit may be maximized with the use of the second generation hook and line kit, part number SE002300.
PART NUMBER: HL009100
This kit contains the complete set of entry tools and essential accessories. This kit has been specifically compiled to offer a complete solution to all access requirements during hook and line procedures. It is designed to be used in conjunction with the NIC Standard Vehicle entry Hook and Line Kit, 2nd generation, Part No: SE002300. Tools are available for opening a variety of building and vehicle doors. In addition, the diamond tipped window breaker offers a controlled method of shattering vehicle windows - a method of entry if the vehicle is locked, and no key is available. Accessories include sticky eyes, an effective fast and strong method of creating an anchoring eye to flat surfaces. These are significantly more reliable than suction cups. The roller karabiner offers a pulley integrated with the karabiner. This drastically reduces the effects of friction on the rope when the karabiner is used as a change of direction. The kit is supplied in a rigid Pelican case, with foam cutouts.
