|"A [b]grappling hook[/b] is a device with multiple [[hook]]s (known as [i]claws[/i] or [i]flukes[/i]), attached to a [[rope]]; it is thrown, dropped, sunk, projected, or fastened directly by hand to where at least one hook may catch and hold. Generally, grappling hooks are used to temporarily secure one end of a rope. They may also be used to dredge for submerged objects. Historically, grappling hooks were used in naval warfare to catch ship rigging so that it could be boarded."
