Renegade: The pioneers of RigLock®, the original hands-free, remote hydraulic wellhead latch assembly (HWLA)

Remove the person from the risk

Renegade Services continues to innovate and implement new levels of wellsite efficiency and safety with the RigLock remote hydraulic wellhead latch assembly. Developed in conjunction with FHS, RigLock removes wellsite personnel from dangerous situations handling heavy, cumbersome equipment at heights near high-pressure lines.

Riglock is a hydraulically-controlled, remote operation device that can connect the lubricator to the well with the flip of a switch. It allows you to remotely connect and disconnect the wireline lubricator. RigLock uses hydraulically operated dogs that lock the lubricator in place and a lockdown ring that mechanically holds the dogs in place. The position of the lockdown ring can be seen from anywhere on location. It also uses a built-in funnel to make it very simple for a crane operator to make a connection.

RigLock utilizes a tapered wedge/spring design and a hydraulically actuated lock ring resulting in industry-leading standards of safety and remote wellsite management sophistication not available with current systems. Crews work from a safe distance, away from the red zone, with but with clear visibility of connection or disconnection operations.

Previously frac operations required the nightcap to be removed manually from the frac tree to stab the wireline lubricator onto the well. This involved a person working on a lift, manually performing the operations. This was done in an exclusion zone, directly underneath a suspended load with hands on the equipment being lifted. RigLock removes the person from the risk.


  • Extractor feature can pull and insert the nightcap remotely.
  • Decreases time it takes to stab onto the well from 25 minutes to only eight minutes.
  • During zipper fracs, wireline operations can proceed from one to well to another while pumping operations continue uninterrupted.

RigLock Operational Features

  • Hydraulic ball drop
  • Positive latch safety light indicator
  • Nightcap extractor

RigLock Control Unit

At the center of the RigLock system is a simple and safe control unit. The well pressure monitoring system quickly and accurately display operating pressure and includes built-in unintentional unlock prevention. A digital, operator-designed touchscreen with cellular connectivity puts the RigLock control unit at the forefront of wellsite safety and efficiency.

Remote, quick connection with simple operations

RigLock remotely connects surface equipment to the wellhead in high-pressure operations. It increases well operation efficiencies and eliminates the risk of potential and costly injuries. With an innovative design, RigLock has simple mechanisms to close-in well pressure especially under conditions presented by high-pressure formations.

Engineered for extreme conditions

RigLock conquers the challenging environments of high-pressure with three levels of safety. Well intervention teams, responsible for high-pressure operations, will benefit from increased productivity while improving safety on location. The engineered construction is composed of a limited number of moving parts which reduces maintenance time and improves operations while also increasing usability. With RigLock, the adapter or nightcap initiates the connection. The hydraulically actuated lock ring lowers to complete it.

RigLock Features

  • Designed specifically for superior performance on high-pressure wells
  • Three levels of safety to protect personnel, equipment, and operations
  • Four tapered wedges initiate the seal once the adapter or night-cap is received into the RigLock
  • The lock ring hydraulically lowers over the tapered wedges completing the connection
  • The oversized, highly visible entry guide ensures crane operators can properly place equipment
  • By working remotely, technicians can lock and unlock the RigLock from a safe distance eliminating the possibility of injury

RigLock Control Unit Features

  • Advanced sensors with light indicators ensure proper closure to prevent operators from applying pressure prematurely
  • The powerful, lightweight VMAC hydraulic driven air compressor generates 140 psi and produces 30 CFM
  • Powered by a Tier 4 Final diesel engine that runs clean and quiet

RigLock® is Ready for You

Let’s start the conversation about how the RigLock wellhead latch and ball drop system and Renegade can work for you.

This highly efficient tool—fast becoming indispensable during wireline runs—increases productivity on-site and significantly decreases risk variables associated with operations. Not only is the strain on equipment alleviated but the equipment operators are no longer positioned under a suspended load. Gunhandler is actively being used on pads across the U.S. where crews have reported “feeling crippled when trying to operate without it.” 




Regardless of the amount of safety training, there is still an element of risk during wellsite operations. Reduction in operator fatigue from the use of the Gunhandler™ is pivotal in creating a shop-caliber environment in the field. More focus is put back into service quality rather than heavy lifting. This higher service quality can lead to fewer gun-misfires, less stress on tools, unexpected modes of failure and longer tool life. 

  • No more manual dolly laydowns/manual lifts 
  • No more personnel under suspended loads 
  • Clearly defined “no-go” zone 
  • Safer, less strenuous gun building zone 
  • Backup, two-position butt-stock, ratcheting lock feature 
  • No damage to the cabling at the rope sockets 
  • Picking up the tool string from vertical positions eliminates all almost flex stress on the tool 
  • Compact design keeps areas near the wellhead clear – and allows more room to work 
  • One-person rig-up/down


» Gunhandler compact design was made for the congested wellsite area.


The Gunhandler was designed with the equipment operator in mind. The hydraulically actuated lift bunk ranges from horizontal to 80º and eliminates the need for manual dolly laydowns. Taking the operator out of the line of fire removes many of the risk variables associated with near-wellhead operations.The six-pad landing gear not only provides a stable footing for anchored operation but also creates a clearly defined “no-go” zone when lifting or laying down the toolstring.

During Gunhandler operation, the two-position butt stock has a ratcheting lock feature for piece-of-mind, so tools remain secured and is spring-retained in the event that an operator forgets to ratchet it down before use. 

  • The waist high working surface gives the wireline ground crew a more comfortable and ergonomic working environment. 
  • Wing legs open at 45° and span a width of 18 ft providing near limitless adjust-ability, a no-go barrier and secure stabilization. 
  • Compact footprint at only 6 ft wide provides the most efficient use of the allotted square footage for the wireline working area. 
  • Fully extended to the 80˚ maximum lift, the equipment will stand 23 ft vertical height. 
  • Gunhandler takes only one crew member to setup, operate and prepare for travel. 
  • Jack-legs are rated to 8,000 lb and have an 18 in. travel 

Increases in the number of stages completed per day can put added strain on operators and increase the risk for potential fatigue-related incidents. The increased frequency of rebuilding of guns is similar to the high volume of repair at the shop level. Gunhandler has an overall height of 42 in. and provides an ideal working height for the operator. Renegade is bridging the gap to assist our field operators by providing shop-like conditions at the wellsite. 


The compact design of the Gunhandler keeps areas near the wellhead clear and allows operators more room to work. Virtually no added room is needed to place Gunhandler into the work zone, yet it provides the functional capability of 23 ft of vertical support to the tool string. With an overall width of 6 ft, it has advantages over many other industry solutions and allows workers to easily reach tools without strain during a rebuild. 

One-person rig-up/down makes the Gunhandler one of the simplest pieces of equipment to setup, run or transport. Variable speed control allows the operator to adjust the rate of the crane operation for maximum precision. 

Reduction in operator fatigue is pivotal in creating a shop-caliber environment in the field. More focus is put back into service quality rather than heavy lifting. This higher service quality can lead to fewer gun-misfires, fewer unexpected modes of failure, and longer tool life.
