Non-Rotating Cargo Hook Kit with Surefire TALON MC Keeperless Hook

Product Number: 200-401-10

Go to video In response to customer requests, Onboard has developed a robust, non-rotating cargo hook suspension system for the Bell 204, 205, 212 and 412 aircraft. This sleek and lightweight cargo hook kit is built with stainless steel and aluminum components, and the simplified design greatly reduces the lifetime cost of ownership. Best of all, it features our reliable TALON MC Keeperless Cargo Hook, which has significantly more safety features than other hooks available.

View Manuals, Certifications, and Hardware Notes


  • Non-Rotating Design:Ideally suited for operators whose external load missions require non-rotating hooks, such as backburning, fertilizer spreading, and firefighting.
  • Surefire® Release Technology:An integrated electronic circuit is added inside the cargo hook to provide about a half-second delay from when the electrical release button is pressed until the hook opens. This helps guard against inadvertent releases by requiring a firm, half-second press of the hook release button.
  • Stainless Steel Tension Straps:Easier to inspect than cables, which tend to fail in fatigue from the inside out under torsion. Straps share the load equally, regardless of the amount of twist in the suspension system.
  • Lower Maintenance Costs:Simplified design, reduced total part count, and extended service intervals greatly reduce ongoing maintenance expense as compared to older designs.
  • Greater Cable Protection:The manual and electrical release cables are routed within a rugged conduit for maximum protection.
  • Low-Friction Bumper Ring:Less rotation and torque as the bumper contacts the airframe, reducing torque inputs to the hardpoint.
  • Optional Onboard Weighing System:Allows pilots to instantly know the cargo weight on the hook. Reduces the risk of overload airframe stress and helps the pilot make more informed aircraft loading decisions.
  • TALON® MC Keeperless Hook with Surefire:Our keeperless hook handles a wide variety of load ring sizes and styles while eliminating the possibility of losing a load that inadvertently gets past the keeper. The addition of our Surefire release technology greatly increases load security.
