Sucker Rod Hooks


Frontlock Hooks the automatic locking mechanism on O’Bannon Frontlock Hooks is as easy to open as your hand. Half concealed in the shank of the hook is a lever, which releases the latch only when the hook is gripped to engage or disengage the elevator bail. The latch is hinged just above this point and extends across the mouth of the hook. It is strong enough to ward off beams and girts, yet sensitive enough to respond instantly to the grip of the operator.

Sucker Rod Elevators


O'Bannon Sucker Rod Elevators come in several types suited to meet differing needs. The Solid Body, Plate Type, Fiberglass, Polished Rod, and Small Tubing Elevators.

Hanging Bell Nipples


The O’bannon hinged bell nipple screws directly into the pumping tee or tubing coupling. It provides a seat for the rod elevator, protects the internal thread on the tee or tubing coupling, and guides rods into tubing

Casing Adapters & Bells


2 ½” AND 3” Type B and Overshot Sockets can be modified to use in casing up to 4 ¼” in diameter with the aid of O’Bannon adapters and bells. Casing Adapters are provided to help guide the socket into the larger pipe interiors and pipes with contoured sidewalls for more efficient operation.

Overshot Sockets


Hardened couplings, which resist capture by ordinary wickered slips, can be successfully retrieved with O’Bannon Overshot Sockets. These employ a lower slip unit, which opens as it passes over the coupling, then closes below the coupling to hold the rod string in a firm mechanical grip. A conventional set of slips in the upper portion of the socket body catches rod body breaks in the normal manner.

Paraffin Knives


O'Bannon Sucker Rod Elevators come in several types suited to meet differing needs. The Solid Body, Plate Type, Fiberglass, Polished Rod, and Small Tubing Elevators.

Polished Rod Tops


The Polished Rod Top is a convenient accessory for pulling rods. Threaded to receive an API sucker rod pin on either end, it is small enough in the middle to permit engagement in a rod elevator. With this top on the polished rod, the string of rods may be lifted without distributing the beam hanger, thus making a dangerous job safe. Made of heat-treated alloy steel with minimum yield strength of 100,000 psi.

Horn Sockets


The Horn Socket is designed for fishing in small tubing sizes (1 ¼”, 1 ½” and 1 ¾”) where it is not feasible to use Type B or Overshot Sockets. O’Bannon Horn Sockets have a lower bowl with integral hard wickers. When the socket is lowered gently onto the catch and rotated to the right, these wickers cut or thread onto the catch. Rod body breaks are caught with conventional wickered slips in the upper bowl.

Slip Sockets


The O’bannon Type B Socket is the reliable, economical answer to fishing jobs involving rod body breaks, pin shoulders or threads, boxes, non-hardened couplings and polished rods. The catch is gripped by spring-loaded, wickered (toothed) slips.


All O'Bannon Type B parts are compatible with Trico Type B Sockets.
