  • No Rigging Requirements:Onboard's hydraulic cargo hook systems do not require strict rigging procedures each time the system is installed.
  • Easier Cable Routing:The hydraulic line is easier to route than a standard manual release cable.
  • Dry-Break Disconnect:The hydraulic line can be disconnected without fluid loss or the need to bleed the entire system
  • Reduced Lifetime System Costs:Stainless steel, braided hydraulic line is designed to last the life of the system. No more replacing expensive cables every year due to wear and tear!
  • Compact Hydraulic System:The hydraulic hook system utilizes a compact master cylinder integrated into the cockpit release handle.
  • Improved Electrical Connector Position:The electrical release connector is positioned to protect it from contact with the aircraft and other cargo hook components.
  • Prompt Order Fulfillment:We maintain a large inventory of complete systems & spares so that we can ship your order quickly.
