Features, Advantages and Benefits
The OK-5 Kickover Tool requires only “snapping” the arm assembly back into position against the barrel for rerunning the tool. In normal running and pulling operations no repining of parts is required.
After running or pulling operation the arm adapter and arm are pushed against the barrel using a detent spring arrangement to lock lower adapter, arm, and arm adapter in position. Once the arm adapter is locked in position, finger housing and finger move upward and are back into “set” position and ready for the next kickover operation.
Running and pulling can be accomplished rapidly without removing tool from wireline tool string for disassembly or repining requirements.
The OK – 5 Kickover Tool is a positive orienting tool that was designed to give the operator the most versatile and easy to use tool on the market.
