  • K-5 Grappler Hook User Comments

    I've searched the forum threads for opinions on using the Ridgid K-5 Grappler Hook, but can find only a passing reference at: http://www.ridgidforum.com/forum/sho...&highlight=k-5

    After a recent experience last week at a local 'Y', where I successfully removed various items from three line access points using three different methods, I wondered about the usefulness of acquiring this particular tool to have on hand.

    To date I've had great success with the small but powerful, 4 gallon, 5hp. portable Ridgid Dry/Wet Vac in retrieving 2 tennis balls, a plastic hockey ball, an aluminum beer can, a hose nozzle and other assorted debris at depths of 5' or more.

    I'd welcome any user of the K-5 Grappler outlining their experience with it and their conclusions as to it being satisfactory or not. Priced at around $200, it's just not an impulse purchase!

    Alternatively, perhaps you've had some successful experiences with other purchased or constructed retrieval tools and techniques that you can also share if they haven't already been posted?

    Eg. One is Plumber Rick's "reverse auger" cable invention that is highly rated and already posted on several posts.

    Thanks, Dave
