Kelo socket overshot

The kelo socket overshots are simple bulldog overshots used to catch small-diameter workstrings and sucker rods inside casing. They are also used to recover coiled tubing that has parted and remains in the hole.

Operation:
Before running, the kelo socket is dressed with the correct slip. The tools are tripped in the hole and the kelo socket is lowered over the top of the fish without rotation. The rotary is then stopped and the kelo socket is lowered over the fish. The slip is engaged by picking up on the workstring. The slip, which is pushed up the slip guide, catches the OD of the fish and starts down the slip guide’s tapered slot. The more pull, the tighter the slip will grip the fish.
