Unaltered sample
The two buckets attached to two torsion springs and a box of a specified area, that allows you to obtain an almost unaltered sample.
When the grab touches the bottom, the trigger is pulled using a messenger and the grab closes, collecting the sample.
Two covers
During retrieval, the grab remains closed and the two upper covers, prevent the sample being washed.

New trigger
It keeps the Ekman grab open and attaches it to the main line.

The new design makes loading the grab easier as it opens the buckets and attaches them to the trigger.
The trigger is activated by our messengers.

The Ekman handle can be used in shallow waters, as a substitute to the messenger.
