Cargo Hook Swing Kit with Surefire TALON LC Hydraulic Hook & C-40 Cockpit Indicator

Product Number: 200-280-08

Call to confirm availability

Onboard's latest generation cargo hook swing kits include our C-40 Indicator and an internal electrical harness that provides a connection to the Vehicle and Engine Multifunction Display (VEMD — post mod 07-4716), allowing for a main rotor RPM increase when an external load of 150 kg is measured by the load cell.

This kit features our Surefire® Release Technology and both the fixed and removable provisions needed for installation on an H125 aircraft that has never been equipped for external load missions.

NOTE: For aircraft without a CRFS configuration but eligible for VEMD main rotor increase

View Manuals, Certifications, and Hardware Notes


  • Surefire® Release Technology:An integrated electronic circuit is added inside the cargo hook to guard against inadvertent releases by requiring a firm, half-second press of the hook release button.
  • VEMD Compatible:Can be configured to interface and function with the aircraft's Vehicle and Engine Multifunction Display (VEMD) to increase the main rotor rpm to 400 when a load over 331 lbs (150 kg) is measured on the cargo hook by the load cell.
  • C-40 Cockpit Indicator:This kit includes our innovative C-40 Cockpit Indicator, which offers hook TBO tracking, dual digital and analog weight display, and a host of other features.
  • Integrated Onboard Weighing System:Allows pilots to instantly know the exact weight of the cargo on the hook. Reduces the risk of overload airframe stress and helps the pilot make more informed aircraft loading decisions.
  • Gimbal Frame:Distributes weight between the four cables more effectively than a rigid frame to ensure balanced load sharing throughout the aircraft.
  • Built-in Bumper Ring:Polymer bumper ring helps keep both the hook and control cables from impacting the swing frame and causing damage.
  • Extended Time Between Overhauls:Teflon-lined, self-lubricating bushings at all wearing joints extend the typical overhaul life.
  • TALON® LC Hydraulic Hook with Surefire:Our hydraulic hook greatly increases load security by using a hydraulically activated release mechanism instead of a traditional manual release cable, as well as our Surefire release technology.
