Product Description

The Squids 3178 Locking Aerial Bucket Hook features a self-locking exterior hook, a non-locking interior hook and an enclosed tethering point to save space and prevent dropped objects when working in cramped buckets. Simply clip to the bucket lip for safe anchoring of tool buckets, bags, aprons, tool lanyards and other equipment. Built for durability in demanding environments, the heavy-duty nylon hook is compliant to a 40lbs // 18.14kg static hold with a 7lbs // 3.2kg dynamic drop rating for tool lanyards.

The self-locking outer hook with thumb release is designed for ease of use while providing the utmost security for tool storage and tethering. The self-locking gate automatically locks when weight from a bucket, bag or other load is applied, preventing unintentional opening. Once pulled up to unlock, the gate will release and push the gear toward the opening for easy removal. Large tabs make for simple one-handed use, while the vibrant orange color allows workers to easily identify whether the gate is locked or not.

In addition to the primary locking hook, this aerial bucket tool features an enclosed tethering point at the bottom for additional tool tethering. It also features an open-ended interior hook for hanging aprons, tool boards or other gear—keeping them up and off the bucket floor.


Rigorously tested and complies with the ANSI/ISEA 121-2018 standard and third-party certified to 40lbs // 18.14kg static hold with a 5:1 safety factor and 7lbs // 3.2kg dynamic drop with a multi-drop safety factor to prevent falling objects.

The Squids bucket hook is built to withstand defined weight limits and is easy to use by any worker to avoid accidental dropped objects that could cause damage, injuries or possibly death. Safety bucket hooks are a part of an overall fall protection plan to reduce the risk of falling objects and increase workplace safety.

Available in two sizes: 2in // 5cm and 3in // 7.6cm (fits buckets with a liner). Can also be sold as a kit – Arsenal 5711 Bucket Truck Tool Board + 2-Pack of 2” Locking Bucket Hooks // Arsenal 5846 Bucket Truck Tool Bag (Small or Large) + 2-Pack of 2” Locking Bucket Hooks.

Ideal for work in bucket trucks, including telecom, transit, utilities, heavy infrastructure, cellular and fiber.
