Direction 44 Pushing, Pulling and Reaching Made Easier, Safer Beckson Manufacturing Safety Utility Hook The safety utility hook eases repetitive strain for workers who must push or pull boxes or bins or access hard-to-reach areas. It protects workers from the inherent dangers of climbing on stools or ladders, as well as from the back stress that occurs with constant bending. The 3- and 4-foot hooks are ideal for pushing and pulling trays and bins in light transport trucks. The 5-, 6-, 7- and 8-foot versions provide even more reaching capacity, making them useful in storage facilities. Custom lengths are available, and the hook end is replaceable. The lightweight hook's aluminum tubing is sheathed in high-strength, nonconductive plastic and equipped with an ergonomic finger grip for comfort. The sturdy hook gives users a secure grasp on objects and can even double as a protective club.
