ARTILLERY TOW HOOK

$495.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 490-2511

The tow hook was essential tool in the artillery for replenishing ammunition. Measuring 14 inches overall, it carried a claw-hammer head on one end of an iron bar handle bent at the other to form a short hook. Crates for artillery ammunition had to be sturdy to protect the contents. The hammer and claw were essential for prying off the lids and the hook was handy for drawing out the tow packing material used to keep the rounds from shifting inside the crate. When push came to shove, time was of the essence. These were simply, but ruggedly made. This one is in great condition and fits all the specs, unlike some civilian tools we have seen masquerading as artillery implements.  [sr] [ph:L]
