The Sky Pole is typically used from a Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat (RHIB) to place a hook and ladder on a larger ship, but can also be used in other situations on other structures including on land. The Sky Pole is made of cutting edge carbon fiber technology from the automotive industry that gives unique stiffness and ruggedness to the tubes. This increases the operational safety and effectiveness. Selected materials are optimized to give low weight and the center of gravity is designed to be lowest possible. The hook is safely locked in place while extending the pole. When pressure in the pole is reduced ie. retracting the pole, the hook is unlocked and releases easily. This gives the opportunity to release the hook while the pole is standing vertically. The new locking mechanism avoids the hook to fall off due to harsh operational conditions and accidentally fall down.
