The Gravity Hook is a mechanical work of art. It’s a cross between a grappling hook from Batman and something Ethan Hunt would use to retrieve a stolen keycard in Mission Impossible. The kinetic transformation from grappling hook to gravity hook is done by simply removing a pin and hammer blade. The weight and size are appropriate for it’s intended use. Heavy and light enough to give it a decent toss. Mind the misses though. It’s heavy enough to cause injury if you are not careful. The stainless steel has a nice shine and feel. There are no rough edges. Everything feels smooth as stainless steel should. It’s a joy to handle.
This Gravity Hook is from the inventor. There are imitations on a big online retailer, but if you’ve made it here than I would like to think that you’ve found the right place: Awesome for Sale I like my Gravity Hook 2.0 and think this would make an excellent Christmas gift for family this year. It’s the right practical size for everyday carry and finally a gadget/tool that’s fun to use.

The size of the 2.0 to the utility it offers it quite exceptional. And better still, the cost to value it offers. From the tree climber to the paddle boarder and everyone in between, there is no end to the possibilities for a creative user. This is a must-have for the discerning adventurer.

I got this for my bf for his birthday and just gave it to him. He says, “It grapples. It hooks. It’s a grappling hook. Folks, don’t be bamboozled into buying no regular grappling hook. This grappling hook hooks and grapples more than any ordinary grappling hook.” Wise words from a wise man. Truly very cool and very fun. He immediately picked up some change from the ground by using a medical mask as string. Would recommend.

I bought this for multiple purposes but primarily keep it in my disc golf bag. I can use the grapping hook to grab and pull things to me and then the gravity hook to pinch the REM and pull it out of water.

Is it possible to lighten the 2.0 ss by having holes in different areas?Love it though.
Using it with my hunting tree climber in case I drop something, which I always do.

I have one Gravity XS, two Gravity Hook 2.0 SS's and now this Gravity Hook 3.0 (larger one).
The XS is so small, that even when taking the spring off of it, it barely has enough weight in and of itself to open the jaws (to pick something up). However, this is my boys' favorite hook of the ones that I have (perhaps because its easier for them to bring with them when they go outside to play).
The 2.0 is my favorite. The weight of the hook allows it to open when contacting most things it's being lowered onto so I can pick them up and the mouth closes pretty well around whatever I'm trying to pick up. I find this to be very useful when I'm up in a tree and I need another piece of climbing gear I left on the ground. I simply lower the 2.0 gravity hook, and pick up another carabiner, another descender, or a rope. I like how the hook operates on it's own weight (opens and shuts completely with minimal fuss).
The 3.0 is definitely bigger and can grab onto things my 2.0 cannot because its wider mouth. However, it doesn't shut completely like the 2.0 or XS do because it comes with a double leaf spring to keep the mouth open about 1/2 inch wide. That's both good and bad:
Good because without them, the weight of the hook and angle of the mouth doesn't allow it to open like the 2.0 does. So, with out the leaf springs keeping the mouth open a little bit, it's definitely harder to pick things up.
It's bad to have the leaf spring in there though because it doesn't allow the hook to completely close. I could never pick up a carabiner, a rope, etc. with this hook because they'd simply slip through the 1/2 inch gap in the mouth from them staying open.
I ended up putting the leaf springs back in because with them out, I can't pick up ANYthing (because they don't open easily). With them in, I can pick up the larger objects than with my 2.0 (i.e. long handled pruners/looping shears).
I would only buy this if I knew I wanted to pick up large items; and ONLY large items. If I thought I was going to pick up medium to small items, I'd get the 2.0. I was hoping that with the 3.0, I could pick up anything the 2.0 could plus the larger items from the 3.0's larger mouth, so I wouldn't have to carry both on my harness/in my backpack.
Most of the pictures here show the hook with the grappling piece attached, but it's very clearly marked and comes with several inserts saying "WARNING! CAUTION! DANGER! Never use any grappling hook where its failure or dislodging might cause bodily harm or property damage. Failure to follow these warnings can results in severe injury, death, or property damage." Clearly, this should NOT be used to hold your weight, for climbing purposes, or anywhere above you (i.e. if it becomes dislodged, or unintentionally hits something and bounces back--imagine having a large, somewhat sharp edged piece of metal flying back in your direction). So, I'm not sure why you'd EVER use a the grappling feature if you can't climb up to where the hook is thrown to retrieve it (i.e. tree, fence, etc.). For me, this is ONLY a retrieval device (i.e. lowered from above, grabs hold, is pulled back up); NOT a grappling hook (starts from below, lodged/thrown up high, pull yourself up).
Conclusion: If I could do it all over, I'd just go with the 2.0 as it's the size I find I need the most, it's lighter/smaller to carry than the 3.0, and it's much cheaper than the 3.0. The XS seems more for fun/novelty than anything useful.

Seriously love this thing, major kudos to the inventor! Love having it in my tree stand in case I drop something, and use it around the house to get stuff in hard-to-reach places. Also, real life-saver when I hurt my back and couldn't bend. Great gift for us guys who are hard to shop for, too!

Very well built and very strong. Despite its weight, it's advantageous in the backpack. Perfect for urban exploration.

So I just had to try! I hooked it up and connected it to my climbing rope. It holds 90kg pretty good.
Good metal, but after a few ups and downs with the hook holding 90 kgs. It bent ever so slightly after I moved around on the rope in mid-air.
I'm so looking forward to the large version is ready for sale! Hope it hold 200+ kg

A little heavier than i would have liked, but performs as advertised. It came in handy as an aid for helping to climb steep embankments. The retriever function is well worth the price alone. Very portable and easy to pack in with the other camping, hiking and boating gear.
