The LiMARĀ® Flo-Activated Alligator Grab is designed to retrieve damaged or broken objects from within the well bore.

Increasing the flow to a predetermined rate allows the jaws to open, reducing pump rate allows the two opposing jaws of the Alligator Grab to snap closed & clamp tightly onto any object caught between them. The jaws of the Alligator Grab are serrated to prevent objects from slipping free once the Jaws are closed. The grip of the jaws can be varied by adjusting the spring tension prior to running in the hole, the activation flow rate can also be altered by replacing inter-changeable orifice inserts in a range of internal diameters.
