Release Hook Systems

Our on-load hook release systems are one of the safest systems on the market. They are designed for ease of operation, low maintenance use and secure against premature release.

In May 2011, the IMO adopted amendments to SOLAS Chapter III and the LSA Code, as well as related Guidelines to all manufacturers, ship owners/ builders to replace their old system with the new Lifeboat Release and Retrieval System (LRRS) not later than the next scheduled drydocking after 1 July 2014, but no later than 1 July 2019.

To fulfil the latest IMO regulations, MSS introduced the ‘Csafe’ Hook which performs maximum safety and quality for most types of lifeboat. As part of a global service network by collaborating with the OEM we are authorized service agents able to carry out comprehensive Hook Retrofit Services to all our customers worldwide.

The hook retrofit includes managing the overhaul examination with final report issued, planning and liaising with the OEMs, lifeboat measurement and calculation, fibreglass/ boat modification, keel shoes and hook installation and performance testing.
