The Flying Lead Orientation Tool (FLOT) is a sliding carriage with a tilting head. It is normally fitted with a torque tool and used to collect and deploy umbilical flying leads.

The pitch rams have counterbalance valves for even operation regardless of load carried. The valve block also has a relieving to tank feature; so that if the pitch rams are subject to heavy external pitch torque from the ROV, they will relieve oil to tank and move within their stroke limits. This feature protects the FLOT from excess load.
