TALON Keeperless Retrofit Kit for 3.3K Half Cage Remote Hook
Product Number: 212-057-00
Call to confirm availability
While using remote hook with a traditional keeper has distinct advantages for missions requiring fast loading, it also carries strict rigging size limitations and requires at least 2 lb. (1 kg) of weight on the load beam to release. For missions where rapid loading isn't an issue, or that require unique linkage (such as USFS contract-provided equipment), or where greatest load safety is paramount, a keeperless configuration would be a better option.

This retrofit kit allows you to convert your existing TALON 3.3K Remote Hook from a keepered hook to a keeperless hook as needed to suit specific missions.
- Keeperless Cargo Hook:Spring-loaded keepered hooks require a specific size load ring to ensure it won't work its way around the keeper. That's why Onboard replaced the cargo hook keeper mechanism with a uniquely secure load beam system. Since there's no keeper, a wide variety of load ring sizes and styles can be safely used without worrying about dynamic rollout.
- Upgrade at Overhaul:Upgrade your TALON cargo hook during your next scheduled overhaul, inspection, or repair service and we will waive installation charges. You pay only for the upgrade components.
- Swap Load Beam Configurations in the Field:Switch between the keepered or keeperless load beam configuration in the field as needed using simple hand tools and a functionality check as described in the owner’s manual.
- Cost-Effective Versatility:Hook configuration can be changed from keepered to keeperless and back again as needed for your missions.
- Works with USFS/DOI Contract Provided Equipment:Because keeperless hooks are designed to handle a wide variety of load ring sizes and styles, operators can safely use the larger load rings provided as part of United States Forest Service and Department of Interior contracts.
- Easily Drop Light Loads:Keep light loads from hanging up with a hook whose load beam opens to almost 90°, even with the lightest of loads.
- Easy Installation:Installation is quick and easy with readily available tools. Assembly instructions can be found in the documentation for this hook, which can be downloaded from our website.
