Crane Hooks: The evo2- evo2l

Since we invented the automatic hook in 2006, our customers have identified the need for smaller, lighter and more compact crane hooks.

Having listened, we designed the evo2 hook. Weighing only 7 kgs./15.43 lbs. and with a working load limit of 2,500 kgs./5,511 lbs., the evo2 remote release hook has additional features than its bigger counterparts. Smaller, more compact, lighter, more efficient, more versatile… Smarter!

The evo2 is a crane hook designed for masterlinks, which, like the rest of our automatic crane hooks,engages and releases the load remotely, increasing safety, productivity and comfort for all lifting operations. The evo 2L shares the same features mentioned above, and in addition offers more attachment possibilities as it is optimised for slinging.

Our smallest crane hook lifts and releases the load remotely. The remote controlled crane hook generates a magnetic field that attracts and orients the sling, masterlink or rigging gear. The operator then presses the «close» button on the remote control to automatically close the crane hook, without any manual intervention, operating remotely from a safe distance.

Small, Compact, Light & Tough

We have created a hook that is lighter, smaller and more compact but equally as strong.


 The evo2 crane hook can be configured with an automatic retractable latch or with a rigid latch. More info


(3 hour charge – 1 week’s power)

The evo2 battery is smaller and lighter than the rest of the range of safety hooks. With the new Eink charge status display system and new electronics, autonomy and consumption are optimized.

Swivel with Bearings

The bearings allow the hook to rotate freely. The operator can lock it at every 90º position.

Remote Release Crane Hook

Clutch Protected Motor

The evo2 crane hook has its motor clutch protected. Thanks to this innovation, impacts on the automatic hook will not be transmitted to the motor, extending its lifespan.

Fail-safe Design

Just like the rest of our bigger hooks, the evo2 is designed under a fail-safe principle that makes it impossible to drop a suspended load. Due to its geometry and its motor, the safety hook will never drop the load if it’s not placed correctly on a horizontal surface.

Automatic Release Hooks


The evo2 hook incorporates an innovative position encoder. This allows the user to know the exact position of the crane hook, allowing better control. This results in longer motor life and safer operations. The sensor is contactless: no wearings and zero maintenance.

Crane Lifting Hook

Magnetic System

The elebia crane hooks come with a unique magnetic system, formed by 32 neodymium permanent magnets. These magnets are placed in a precise configuration that generate an oriented magnetic field with 3 functions: attract, center and orient the masterlink. This basic component, which is present in all our remote hooks, is what allows the remote engage of loads.

Some other options are available to be configured:

Automatic Hooks

Standard Magnet


Automatic Release Lifting Hook for Cranes

The standard magnet is composed of 32 permanent magnets that build up a magnetic field and perform the three functions that characterise the elebia hooks. It attracts the target, centres it and orients it to the ring. This is the basic component that allows the remote hooking of loads thanks to an off-site control.

Magnet Sensor


Automatic Release Lifting Hook for Cranes

A sensor in the magnet indicates when the masterlink is attached to it. This info is displayed in the eMAX remote control. Units with the magnet sensor can be configured in ‘Autoclose Mode’: the hook will automatically close when the magnet sensor detects the ring is in position. The magnet sensor’s sensitivity/trigger level can be adjusted to customer needs.

Recommended for: uncomplicated, basic and common applications.
Recommended for: Applications where it is difficult to see the lifting point. Automated processes, as the magnet sensor info can be used by the PLC controlling the crane

Void, No Magnets


Automatic Release Lifting Hook for Cranes
No magnetic system.
Recommended for: Applications where only a remote release is needed.

Weighing Scale

The complete range of crane hooks can be upgraded with a load cell to weigh the load that is being lifted. This cargo cell is precise, reliable, compact and fully integrated into the safety hook, representing no increase in weight or dimensions of the unit. The load cell is recommended for preventing overloads and for load control. Load cells can also be retrofitted into older models of our hooks.

The load cell in combination with the eMAX remote control transforms all of our crane hooks into a precise weighing scale with advanced features.

Open and close the safety hook or receive real-time information of weight, battery level, and other values of the lifting operation.

As with the rest of our lifting products, the evo2 crane hook can be paired to any of our remote controls.

Remote Control Crane Hook

evo2 Bumpers

The bumper for the crane hooks is the perfect shock absorber that protects the safety hooks from impacts.

– With safety always in mind, the new evo2 Bumpers which protect the lifting hooks for cranes from impacts now also carry a LED status indicator, which shows the lifting hook’s status at all times with a high-brightness 4 colour colour-code scheme visible from the operator’s position.

– Protect the hook and your load from scratches and day-to-day wear.

– Protect workers in case of impact.

– Extend product life.

– Reduce maintenance costs.

Quick FAQ’s

Why is the evo2’s design different than the rest of the evo range of hooks?
The evo2 crane hook was originally envisioned for port operations, such as manoeuvring big bags, paper pulp and bulk products in general. Its design had to be smaller, lighter and more compact.
Can the evo crane hooks be used in special environments like water, foundries or offshore applications?
Yes. With special configurations, the hooks can be used in underwater operations, DNV, explosive atmospheres (ATEX/IECEx) and with elevated temperatures and radiated heat.
Don’t the crane hooks get damaged with day-to-day use?
The product’s life can be extended with the use of the bumpers. They protect the hook (and operators) from impacts, reduce maintenace costs and increase safety in general in any lifting operation.
