Lifting Hooks for Cranes


With the evo range of lifting hooks for cranes, elebia, the market leader in automatic lifting solutions will boost the safety and productivity of your cranes. The patented evo hooks range from the 2.5 tons capacity of the Automatic Crane Hooks to 25 tons capacity and allow you to hook on and release any load remotely.

Our evo5-evo25 crane lifting hook selection has been designed with one purpose: to bring our customers multiple options that can fit the needs of the heaviest lifting operations. No matter what kind of cargo you need to carry, it will be easy for you to find the perfect solution.

The patented range of safety hooks are equipped with a magnet in its lower section. When the magnet is close to the load, it attracts and correctly positions the sling. The operator pushes the control button, the hook closes, catches the ring and lifts the load without any additional handling.

These crane hooks work with cable slings, chains slings, master links, textile slings and even big bags. And with the unique elebia hooks, you will be able to pick up and release loads remotely, avoiding any handling and moving, minimising risks, enhancing safety and increasing productivity.

How Does It Work?

The evo lifting hooks attach and release the load remotely. The remote controlled crane hooks generate a magnetic field that

1. attracts the rigging gear or lifting accessory…

2. …orients it…

3. …and centers it.

The operator then presses the “close” button on the remote control to automatically close the lifting hooks for cranes, without any manual intervention, and operating remotely from a safe distance.

Check out out Youtube channel for more videos on how the patented evo lifting hooks engage and release any load remotely in different applications and in different industries.

Evo5 and Evo25



Safety Hook
A sensor in the magnet indicates when the ring is in position. All this information is recorded in the eMAX remote control that acts as a hub gathering all the information and recording all the activity of the hook.


Crane Hook
We’ve redesigned the high-capacity battery to improve efficiency and minimise energy consumption of the hook. The battery is fully charged in 3 hours, and allows up to 5,000 cycles or 250 hours in standby mode.



Remote Hook
The new gearmotor allows you to release up to 20kgs. (40.09 lbs.) There will be no more problems with heavy rigging and with the precise electronic torque control, you can adjust the release limit. It is also clutch protected from overloads.


Remote Release Hook
Designed to work in the toughest conditions (steelworks, ports, low temperatures) and built with the best materials. WELDOX body of high strength steel, forged hook type T or V.


Fail-safe Designed Lifting Hooks for Cranes

The evo range of lifting hooks for cranes was designed to enhance safety and increase productivity. It is designed under a fail-safe principle. Most importantly, this hook CAN NOT drop a suspended load. This is a feature of all our designs, geometrically fail-safe, without any sensors or electric components.

Magnetic System

Our 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.

The complete range of our hooks carry this basic component, which allows the remote engage of loads.

Other options can also be configured with the crane hooks.

Automatic Release Hook

Standard Magnet


Remote 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

Power Magnet


Automated Lifting Hook for Cranes
Increased magnetic power.

Void, No Magnets


Quick Release Lifting Hooks
No magnetic system.

Recommended for: Applications where the lifting point is weakly attracted by the magnet (some stainless steels). Applications where the hook is below a long wire rope, and a lot of swinging makes it difficult to catch the masterlink.
Recommended for: Applications where only a remote release is needed.

Weighing Scale

The complete range of quick release hooks for cranes can be upgraded with a load cell to weigh the load that is being lifted. This cargo cell is accurate, powerful and fully integrated into the hook, representing no increase in weight or dimensions of the unit.

The load cell is highly recommended for preventing overloads and as an additional safety hooks lifting measure. Load cells can also be retrofitted into older models of our crane lifting hooks.

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

Remote Release Automatic Hook

Option Alarm

An acoustic alarm & warning can be configured if necessary (100dB at 1m), and it will trigger itself under the following scenarios:

– When exceeding the load capacity and/or pre-set weight limit of the Warning on the eMAX remote control set in Settings -> Emax -> Scale -> Alarms -> Warning (On) -> Value -> (Set value)

– In case of an unbalanced load, configured on the Differential of the eMAX remote control, set in Settings -> Emax -> Scale -> Alarms -> Differential (On) -> Value -> (Set value)

In both cases, the acoustic alarm & warnings (buzzer, vibrator) will deactivate themselves automatically once the excess weight is ammended and/or when the load is correctly balanced.

Position Encoder

The innovative position encoder has been integrated into the complete range of evo lifting hooks for cranes. As a result, this represents an added safety element in all lifting operations. The encoder highlights a technical upgrade of our remote hooks, as it allows to know the exact angular position of the hook at any given moment thanks the information relayed to the eMAX remote control.

This important feature comes in very handy in operations where the operator can not see the hook’s position. The crane hook status is displayed on the eMAX remote control, transmitting real time information to the operator.

With the position encoder and the eMAX remote control, the user is always aware of the hook’s status (open/closed) and is informed with the buzzer/vibrator and display features of the eMAX if the load is not placed correctly on the safety hook. (e.g. tip of the hook)

With the specifications of this advanced feature, the chances of impacts are reduced, the life-span of the motor and clutch increase and most importantly, safety is enhanced in all lifting operations.

The position encoder can be retrofitted into older units of the complete range of evo lifting hooks for cranes (except for versions with a spring loaded latch)

Automatic Lifting Hooks for Cranes

Remote Controlled

Simply open and close the crane hooks or receive real-time information of weight, battery level, and other values of the lifting and manoeuvring operation.

As with the rest of our lifting products, the crane hook can be paired to the eMAX, eMINI and/or eINST installable remote controls.

All of them allow a simple, flexible, precise and reliable control in a fail-safe way.
