Advanced Grabbing Unit./Box

The Advanced Grabbing Unit, AGU, or The Klaw, is a medium-sized docking device which can couple to an asteroid (or any surface, really) without a docking node in place.

Manufacturer's description

Kerbal Motion engineers have long struggled with the problem of how to extract dropped tools from complicated machinery. After observing an intern cleaning out his shoes by turning them upside down and shaking them in the lab, our team was hit with a stroke of inspiration! Why not turn the rocket parts upside-down and shake them? The grabbing arm perfectly filled this niche, and is quite capable of lifting heavy machinery. It has since found other uses, besides delicate tool extraction operations. AKA "The Klaw!"


This device can toggle between closed and open states.
