Onboard's new replacement cargo hook kit for the Eurocopter EC135 aircraft has been certified by the FAA and Transport Canada and is currently in production. Onboard has also submitted the kit to EASA for certification in Europe.

"Onboard has received many requests from operators of the OEM-supplied system who are interested in replacing their legacy hook with an Onboard hook," said Karsten Lemmon, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Onboard Systems. "This new kit was developed in response to these requests, and will give operators a cost-effective option to switch out their old hook for an Onboard hook."

The new replacement kit for the Eurocopter EC135 features a modified version of Onboard's innovative TALON® LC Keeperless cargo hook, which can handle a wide variety of load ring sizes and styles while eliminating the possibility of losing a load that inadvertently gets past the keeper. The lock indicator window on the back of the hook gives ground crew personnel an easy visual signal that the hook is locked. Finally, the maximum angle of the hook opening has been increased to almost 90° for easier loading and unloading.
