Cranston Eagle received approval from the United States Coast Guard for the certification of its new DPR-506-CBH marine off-load hook under the approval number 160.133/77/0. This new, fall-mounted hook is rated at 5,000 kg safe working load (5 metric tons) and bolsters Cranston Eagle's line of USCG certified off-load hooks to five. With more than twenty off-load marine hook models in its line, Cranston Eagle is known around the world for producing one of the most robust and reliable marine hooks on the market.

The new model DPR-506-CBH fulfills the marine market's long-standing request for a five metric ton USCG certified fall-mounted hook.

For this reason, they are heavily utilized by US and foreign military vessels and on offshore installations around the world for launching fast response craft and other small vessels while at sea.
