Make a Reel Difference

The CATHEAD is designed and manufactured in Alberta by an experienced oilfield worker who recognized a need to develop a tagline spool for the self-retracting lifelines on the jobsite. The reel gives workers retrieval and storage options for taglines that are attached to their self-retracting lifeline. The CATHEAD is an innovative, simple and easy to use tool that will improve overall safety and promote housekeeping by decreasing tripping hazards associated with the tagline on the worksite floor.

"The CATHEAD system has improved rig floor safety and housekeeping by eliminating the S.R.L pull down rope from laying on the rig floor where it gets stepped on and dirty, and creates a trip hazard for personnel. With the CATHEAD, it is spooled up nice, neat and clean during trips and servicing the top drive. It has improved safety and aesthetics around the rig."
