wireline grab

1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]
A fishing tool used for the retrieval of broken or cut slickline from the wellbore. Wireline grabs are intended to catch and engage wireline that has been bunched or nested in the wellbore. For that reason, they are often run after a blind box or similar fullbore tool has been used to nest the wireline.
