Default Invention pics

Some of you know I have been working on this product. Finally have some pics and video and thought I would share. It is Patent Pending and moving to the market place at this time. It will do a LOT more than what this shows, but gives you the idea, HANDS FREE EXTRACTION. Just thought I would share with the GS, oh yeah, the "Officer" is a member of GS also! MODS, feel free to delete if not allowed.

Thanks, it should be one of the most versatile in a rescuers bag.

It can be used for that as well. I ACTUALLY have pulled two calves with it and may call it the HFE'r for that use!

Looks like a great idea. Just looking at the pictures it seems like a harness would be a great addition. It looks like it would pull my pants down attached as the pictures show.Then again its hard to tell just looking at pictures.Good luck with your project.

It is designed to be attached to the rescuer in a number of ways, hips, shoulders, sash style, etc. every situation is different, so we want it to adapt.

How very innovative! Be sure to let us know when it hits the market. I’d be interested in one for the calf-pulling benefit.

Great idea and best of luck to you. I agree you should sell it to the hunting world as well. It may need some tweaking to make it tough enough to pull through the woods. Your product would be much easier to carry in and out of the field than a deer sled.

Although it may work for deer, I donít think thatís what he had in mind during development...


Mr. Ashby, having taught many classes on this type of extrication, I was concerned with the first pic, mainly if the rescuee was unconscious and unable to keep the arms folded.... but you cleared that up with second pic.

I hope that you can sell more units than you can provide. Great product, from what I have seen from the limited information provided.



Ima gonna send you a PM.

Yes, I started to change the first pic because of that. Told the guy not to cross his arms anyway. But it is a start to introduce the product. Thanks for the kind words and input. This thing has so many uses we haven't even found them all!

What about adding an addition reinforced webbed handle about a foot above the where the head would be in case you need to quickly reach back and lift someone over an odd shaped object in the way.

Is there a quick disconnect in the unfortunate situation said puller needs to quickly disengage in order to save his life while attempting the retrieve?

Sweet! Most are not familiar with the great efforts expended trying to drag a firefighter out in full bunker gear. One firefighter down normally takes 2 to 3 firefighters plus someone to take over that firefighters job. At a minimum. Add any kind of additional hazards or tasks and those numbers can grow exponentially. Send me some contact info! I’d love to try it out

Looks like a very useful tool!

One thing you may consider for next versions - What about some type of inflation pockets that aid in neck stabilization? Could be regulated inflated by a CO2 cartridge - realizing that speed is primary driver here.

Just a thought - disclaimer: I'm in no way a medical professional or a first responder of any type. Engineer so I always tinker.

Looks great man!!! We have been using/training with nylon drag straps for several years on our tac team for extracting down/wounded folks.

And like someone else said..... making something pointed towards hunters/outdoorsman might be a good idea also.

Already in design, but also thinking of it for water extrications. Keep the head above water.

Most rescuers have, but not with a headrest or having their hands completely free. I also designed it so you can go forward instead of backing out. OR you can back out if the danger (enemy) is towards the victim, like combat or active shooter situations
