The two-in-one tool performs the functions of both a cant hook and a pole tong without spiking the pole. With positive control, it grasps poles of round or other geometric cross sections (square, hex, etc.) made of metal, fiber, concrete or wood. Latex-impregnated nylon-web strap (134″ x 6 feet) rated at 7,500 lb. tensile strength securely grips poles, even large diameter poles.
