- Furthermore, the weight of the inertia parts unnecessarily increases the weight of the whole grapnel.

- The grapnels in high strength aluminum alloy can be projected to a height of minimum 50 m and horizontally to a minimum of 80 metres.
- Apertures for grapnels will be cut by divers.
- The collapsible grapnel is a hand-thrown grapnel hook that is used for climbing, removing mines and other objects, and pulling concertina and barbed wire obstacles.

- Many of the grapnels never reached the top because they were soaked and too heavy.
- With the grapnel and rope attached to its antlers the animal struggles to get loose and breaks the rope, but not before it pulls the hydrofloat over to a wooden dock.
- The skipper rigs a 45m line with a grapnel to place it as close to the bridge as possible.
