There is still room for continual improvement in a tool which is found in most tool boxes around the globe.
From our G>netic range, the Arm-Align® GS reflects the LiMAR® design philosophy in its entirety. With a focus on Safety, Ergonomics and Reliability, the Arm-Align® GS is an example that there is still room for continual improvement in a tool which is found in most tool boxes around the globe. From the smallest 1-1/2" nominal GS to the 9-5/8" version, LiMAR® have incorporated the unique Arm-Align® feature which allows the GS to be re-pinned without any ancillary pinning tools or potentially risky action of leveraging the GS in a vice. The matching flats on the Intermediate Sub and the Core, also mean that the shear pin holes will always align to the pinning position, without having to rotate the tool components for shear pin removal and redress. These features increase the speed at which the tool can be re-armed, whilst providing a very safe alternative compared to a traditional GS pulling tool.
Several other features include dual step support profile on the Dogs, for added strength, and a more robust Cylinder with "J" Slot feature for disengagement at surface. The LiMAR® Multi-Action Shear Sub (MAS Sub) can also be used in conjunction with the GS for multiple, sequential shear direction options including Shear Down, Shear Up, Jar-down indefinitely, jar-up indefinitely – Shear Down.
