Quick Release Mooring Hook

TheQuick release mooring hook is critical to ensure efficient mooring operations at jetties, quays, and ports.


Safety is the overriding concern for any port operator, and the risk of damage or injury caused by failing mooring lines, failing hooks, or structural failure is considerable. It’s therefore critical that marine operators identify these risks and prevent them wherever possible: Glen’s high-quality Quick Release Mooring Hook system, manufactured and designed to meet precise engineering demands, is the solution.

Mooring lines need to be safely secured, and quickly and easily released, even when working to a large load limit. Designed by combining each customer’s individual SWL, material, configuration, and Intmoor QRH requirements, Glen provides the most suitable mooring hook solution for each and every application.

Quick Release Mooring Hook Specifications

Every docking and mooring system has individual performance requirements from its QRH system, meaning a system that delivers optimal performance in one installation may not perform nearly as efficiently in another. It’s therefore critical you work with experts that can analyze your needs and address all your engineering challenges – and at Glen, we have the team you need.


Glen offers a wide range of hook capacities ranging from SML 40 T to SWL 180 T, as well as a range of flexible mounting options. Typically, new installations are designed to use our standard base dimensions. For customers upgrading existing facilities, fabricated hook bases can be designed to match existing hold-down bolt patterns. Glen’s QRH units can be supplied in single, double, triple, quadruple, or septuple hook configurations, while they are fully compatible with other Glen-manufactured Intmoor components. For offshore applications, the QRH is class certificated and designed for a new generation of ship-to-ship floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) and bunkering applications.


Designed to weather harsh marine environments and operate safely in hazardous areas, Glen Quick Release hooks deliver safety and performance with low maintenance and operational requirements – the minimum effort is required to release the mooring line in case of emergency.
