What is the RK-1 Running Tool?

The RK-1 Running tool is used to run 1.50” O.D. gas lift valves into side pocket mandrels. It can be attached to kickover tools that utilize a 5/8” sucker rod connection in the kick arm. The RK-1 Running tool is pinned to the gas lift valve and and utilizes a shear mechanism to release the valve after installing it into the side pocket mandrel.


  • Typically used to run “RK”, “RK-1” or “RKP” type latches in “MMG” series Side Pocket Mandrels.

Key Features & Benefits

  • Simple and robust consisting of only one part with no moving parts.
  • Internal shoulder which allows the RK-1 running tool to shoulder out against the side pocket mandrel latch being run.
