The Series 160 Side Door Overshot is recommended when fishing for cable tools or conductor lines in cased holes. The side door overshot is run in on tubing or drill pipe. Line can be fed into the tool by removing the door on the side of the bowl. The door is put back into position after the line is in place. The feature eliminates the necessity of cutting the line or cable and the possibility of the lines fouling when there are two lines in the hole.
