Latches

Lock and retrieve your valves with ease

We offer a variety of wireline-retrievable latches for 1- and 1.5-in, gas-lift, chemical-injection, and special-application mandrels. These devices keep valves locked in place during operation and release during pulling operations. 

Reduce valve maintenance and repair costs

Latches for Side-Pocket Mandrels

Secure various special devices

We offer a line of wireline-retrievable latches—including BK-2, BEK-2, RK, RKP, RA, MT-2, and RM models—for locking into side-pocket mandrels. You retrieve the latch and attached valve by jarring the toolstring upward to shear the release shear pin and disengage the locking mechanism from the latch lug pocket profile.
