The Teakdecking Systems reefing hook removes caulk and other flexible materials from teak seams. Hook scrapes caulk and other seam sealants once they have been freed using a razor knife.
It leaves minimal material residue that can be easily cleaned with a hand sander such as Teakdecking Systems Seam Sander. Designed for a long life span, this reefing hook was made with hand comfort in mind, making prepping your teak for caulking a breeze.

I won't use it till next spring but is what was ordered... The order was filled and sent promptly with excellent ordering assistance. Thanks Jamestown, CH

The handle of this tool definately reduced hand fatique. , A sharper angle on the blade would improve tool performance.

Learned how to use it watching several very good u-tube videos. I have been rehabbing my sailboats' teak deck which, in retrospect, is too much for a 73 year old! I also bought the Fein tool for my oscillating saw but I'm not very good with it.

Job is always easier with the right tool. Tedious job no matter what but not as bad a headache with the right tool.

Could not have done the job without it.

I'm restoring a 1961 Chris Craft 17-feet ski boat/runabout. This tool is perfect for removing the caulking between the planks.

I tried to clean out the caulk with other makeshift tools. Bought this. It is easier, less effort, faster, and does a better job. Yes it is expensive for a device that is essentially a narrow scraper, but I could not find it anywhere else.

Removed caulk from my sailboat teak toe rail last October 2018 without the aid of these simple but important TDS tools. Doing additional work on the toe rail this summer with these tools--so much better!

This hook would be great for a teak deck, but is too wide for reefing the seams on the bottom of an old wooden boat. I give 5 stars to Jamestown for their communication and cooperation in cancelling the order!
