Technical Specifications

The Omega Releasable Rope Socket can be used with either slick or braided wireline and is designed to release only in the event the toolstring becomes stuck downhole.

The device is activated by a drop bar which works in a similar manner to a go-devil or snipper.

When the drop bar contacts the release trigger, the collet releases the lower fishing neck. The upper housing and drop bar are retrieved to surface leaving a clean fishing neck. Simply changing the internal clamping mechanism converts the Omega Releasable Rope Socket from slickline to braided line.
