Offshore Handling Drill Pipe Set Back Tool

The Drill Pipe Set Back Tool is designed for safe maneuvering and precise positioning of the drill pipe in the setback areas. This tool is structured with the purpose of increasing safety and control while handling heave suspended pipes. It protects hands, fingers and the personnel’s feet in case of maneuvering vertical pipes. It is built with U shaped connection, an aluminum staff and a rubber handle for an impeccable grip. On the rear end comes with shoulder attachment that allows the user extra control that is required to position the pipe in the vertical position, whilst being at safe distance from the landing area.

These series of high-performance pipe handling devices are known for their flexible and versatile utility, robust structure and fail proof operation. The deck crews handling tool for drill pipe in the setback area offers proper handling, hand free assistance and remarkable protection to the operators.

Industrial Application

The essential application of the tool includes maneuvering, oilfield pipe racking, landing and storage of drill pipes in the set back areas around the drilling floor. Designed particularly for catwalk decking and generally any suspended pipe handling function in oil and gas drilling platforms, this drill pipe movement handling tool is versatile and can be also used for handling bundle hoses, large pipes in other industries such as pipe manufacturing sectors.

When dealing with heavy suspended dill pipes without hands free safety tool impacts crush points, hands and finger injuries and corrosive drilling liquids spilled over the operators arms. The drill pipe set back tool guarantees safe handling to the user for push and pull function of the pipes whether in a fixed position or while being suspended.

How Does the Drill Pipe Setback Tool Work?

In order to prevent any operational hazards, having optimum precision and control over movements is essential to the overall rig safety and performance standards. This catwalk area hands free tool offers excellent flexibility at the same time offering guaranteeing accuracy in load movements. These features contribute to the safety of hands and feet of the personnel and mitigate the potential damage to the pipe, casing joints and its threads.

To employ this Drill pipe setback tool, the operator must keep the close-handle point securely on one shoulder, while using the other hand on the mid-shaft section to command over the movement of the pipe. At the end a unique attachment design facilitates push and pull function; it is constructed with a U-shaped section for outwards motion, while the inward motion is controlled by a reverse under hook.

For heavy and suspended pipes and controlled usage of the drill pipe setback tool, participation of two operators together is highly recommended. After completion of tasks, the push pull pipe tool can be deposited in a vertical position in rig tool storage stations. This helps to keep the set back area organized and increase the casing joints guider tool’s life cycle by appropriate storage simultaneously.


To provide a hands-Free working casing joint operation with a safety buffer zone, these wide range suspended drill pipe tools are arranged with a shaft that is long enough to perform the task ergonomically. They are available in two different sizes of 1200mm and 1500mm.

The U-shaped attachment forward facing and one rear facing helps to stabilize the suspended pipe with up to 5⅞ inches in diameters and maneuvering them while in vertical position. The safety of this tool’s design is further enhanced with a tagline retrieving hook to provide a rigger to swinging or rotation of suspended pipes and preventing the operator from exposure to hazards.

Here are general specifications of the rig floor hands free tool to consider.

Safety Benefits of Using the Drill Pipe Set Back Tool

While performing drilling operations, it is highly recommended to combine your push pull pipe tool with other safety equipment such as anti-crush point safety bootssafety gloves and suits resistant to drilling liquids, and face and head PPE.

The main advantage of the Drill Pipe Set Back Tool is toenhancea safety buffer zone when positioning drill pipes. The drill pipes impose several risks, such as exposure to corrosive drilling liquid, crush points and pinch points while handling the pipe or during the correction of the position of the pipe’s threads positions.

Conversely, these pipes are heavy objects and hand-on maneuvering is often performed in stooped and back stressing positions; using a Drill Pipe Set Back tool also adds to the ergonomic safety of oil rig platform’s pipe handling systems.
