The Taylor Made Ratchet
Overshot is a Vertical Catch/Vertical Release external pulling tool.
Deployed in the release position, the overshot will automatically engage
upon contact with the fish. Applying approximately 250 lb. slack off
weight will cause the overshot to release from the fish.
The activation from release to engage can be repeated as many times as
required. There are no shear pins, the ratchet mechanism cycles the
grapple between the release and engage position.
Grapples and Bowls are easily changed to accommodate a variety of fish
dimensions. Smaller diameter overshots can be converted to utilize
much larger diameter bowls and grapples.
The Overshot can be fitted with a wide variety of Bowls, Grapples,
Guides, and Extensions to externally engage practically any type of fish.
