Mail Grab Hook on KCS RPO 30
Title:  Mail Grab Hook on KCS RPO 30
Description:  Yes, that is my hand holding up the hook to show you how it works. The hook would snach a bag from a pole at a depot and when it snacthes you have to catch it before it drops out from the hook and you lose the mail all over the tracks, which would be a bad thing.
