Batelle Grappling Hook Gun Fires Hooks, Goodies Up to 160 Feet

 |  |  |  |  |  November 22, 2010


Budding superheroes – How many times have you had the need to scale a building, but just didn’t have the arm strength to get your grappling hook all the way to the roof? Thanks to this air-powered grappling hook, you no longer need to worry.

Batelle’s Tactical Air Initiated Launch system (or TAIL for short) fires a sturdy titanium grappling hook on a Kevlar line as high as 100 feet in the air from up to 60 feet away.

The barrel of the powerful pneumatic cannon can be used to not only to launch grappling hooks, but any other object that’ll fit in the barrel. Think world’s most powerful t-shirt cannon, or potato cannon, marshmallow cannon, or confetti cannon. You get the point. Seriously, though, Batelle designed the thing to help with rescue missions, and other tactical missions, not food fights.

Batelle’s website currently appears to be crushed under the weight of awesomeness they generated when they posted the image above to the Internet. For now, you just need to stare at the image and admire it from afar. It’s not like you could afford one anyhow.
