Cargo Hook Troubleshooting Guide
Sunday, June 15, 2008
With thousands of installations on aircraft around the world, the TALON® line of cargo hooks from Onboard Systems has proven to be extremely reliable. However, care must be taken during installation and ongoing operations to ensure continued safe operation of your cargo hook. If proper care and attention is not paid to the installation and operation instructions, a cargo hook malfunction or an inadvertent load release can result.
That's why Onboard Systems has created a troubleshooting guide for our cargo hooks, which outlines field troubleshooting procedures for TALON cargo hook systems. It is intended to provide a general overview of common problems that may occur during external load work as well as suggestions on how to resolve them.
This document has not been reviewed or approved by the FAA or other aviation regulatory agencies and is not a substitute for the specific guidelines and procedures provided in the Owner’s Manual, Rotorcraft Flight Manual Supplement, Service Manual or Instructions for Continued Airworthiness. This manual should be used as a guide by experienced aircraft mechanics using standard shop practices and basic troubleshooting skills along with the specific user documentation provided with your cargo hook kit.
