New Product Annoucement from Crosby: Tubing Grabs for Well Servicing

 Tubing Grab  Tubing Grab Tool

Crosby's Tubing Grab was designed to move tubing from a trailer or the ground (tubing horizontal) to the well service truck's rig floor.  The Tubing Grab clamps on the tubing just behind the upset and a wire rope assist line is attached to the shackle on the Tubing Grab .  It is not designed to move the tubing from the rig floor up to vertical in the rack.  The rig elevators are used to lift  the tubing vertical in the rack, not the tubing grab. The Tubing Grab can also be used in the reverse to from the rig floor to the trailer or ground.   


Available in 2 sizes: 2-3/8" and 2-7/8" and has a rated capacity of 500 lbs.
