The Dover Artificial Lift Type B slip socket is a reliable, economic answer to fishing jobs for rod body breaks, pin shoulders or threads, boxes, non-hardened couplings and polished rods.
Spring-loaded, hardened wickers of teeth bite or dig into the softer rod or coupling being fished. Simple rod body breaks are engaged in the upper slips, which work in the socket’s inner bowl. Similar slips positioned at the lower end of the outer bowl make other catches. All slips are heat treated, quenched and tempered to ensure a positive bite and long service life.
NOTE: The Type B slip socket is a special-purpose tool that should be used with care. The operator must assume responsibility for any failures.
