MK2 Hook and Line Kit
SDMS Product Code : SE116
NATO Stock No. : 1385-99-252-2122
In use for more than 20 years the MK2 Hook and Line Kit was originally designed for the British Army to enable EOD teams to remotely manipulate a suspect explosive device without being too close to be injured by it. The equipment is regarded as essential kit for any team dealing with explosives and is now a standard item for the British Army and most NATO countries.
The MK2 Kit has recently been extended to include an new range of components for dealing with a wide variety of containers that can be used for housing a terrorist bomb.
The equipment is also used by EOD operators to remotely gain access to a difficult location where a suspect device might be located, and to remove a device once it is discovered. With the use of the MK2 Hook and Line Kit an operator can be distanced for the device by two lines, each 120 metres long.
