EZ On, EZ Off

This tool simplifies the work of lifting and pulling up heavy anchors or loaded crab pots.


It’s just that simple

When anchoring, there is no threading and holding a line lock open. Just pay out your anchor line, then snap Orval’s EZ Pull™ and buoy on to the anchor line. Toss buoy and puller in the water. Pay-out a little more line and you’re set. EZ on, EZ off. Snap-it on, snap-it off!

Unique advantages 

• Transfers from pot to pot or anchor with no threading of the line.
• Only one is needed for your entire operation.
• Uses the forward motion and power of your boat.


Orval’s EZ Pull is constructed of heavy cast aluminum for added strength and stainless steel parts for corrosion resistance. Weighs just under 2lbs. Accommodates 5/16″ to 1/2″ lines.


A buoy large enough to support floating your anchor/crab or shrimp pot is required. A buoy is not included in the price.


Instructions For Use

EZ On, EZ Off

How To Install

Hold the device in your left hand with the slot facing to the right, use your left thumb to depress the lever down.

Lay the anchor line in the slot, beginning at the roller end. The line snaps in and under both line locks with a little pull on the rope and a slight twist on Orval’s EZ Pull™.

You’re now ready to toss the line overboard with the puller and buoy in-place. Pay out some more line and secure the line to the bow.

Lifting & Retrieving an


Move the vessel forward till the line is tight and the anchor has lifted clear of the bottom. You’re now able to lift and retrieve using the boat’s forward motion at a nominal speed.

Pulling Crab Pots

Pull along side the buoy and retrieve the pot buoy and some line; place Orval’s EZ Pull™ on the crab pot line (as described above) with the attached puller buoy. Give Orval’s EZ Pull™ its buoy and some slack line in the water. You’re now able to retrieve using the boat’s forward motion at a nominal speed.

Removing Orval’s EZ Pull™

Grasp the rope about 8″ to 10″ below the roller end, fold it back into the slot and give it a pull toward you.

Step 1

Hold the EZ Pull in your left hand and with the left thumb press the lever down.


Step 2

Lay line in the slot and then pull line in under the center rope lock and under the retainer on the roller end of the casting.

Step 3

This end faces the anchor or crab pot.

Step 4

This end faces the boat.

Step 5

To remove rope from EZ pull. Grab the rope about 10″ below the EZ Pull and fold the rope back in the slot and give it a pull toward you. Then it will snap right out.

Step 6

Chain should be about 14″ from buoy. This length works best for me.
