  • Dual Solenoid Design:Eliminates the need for high-cost Cartridge Activated Devices (CADs) for back-up release functionality.
  • Lower Weight:Onboard's cargo hook kit weighs less than the original OEM design.
  • Simple Installation:Uses existing cockpit wiring so that only minor wiring changes are required for installation.
  • Release Safety:Onboard cargo hooks are designed to release 2.5 times rated load. In an emergency situation, such as a longline snag, Onboard hooks give pilots a significant margin of safety in which to release the cargo load.
  • Eliminates Dynamic Rollout Potential:Keeperless hook eliminates the risk of an improperly sized load ring slipping past the keeper.
  • 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.
  • Dual-Actuation Release Lever:Helps eliminate accidental releases caused by contact with foreign objects. The lever must be pinched together to open the hook. But it's easy for the ground crew to open, even with gloves!
  • 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.
