Designed specifically for use with lighter helicopters, the TALON 2K Remote Cargo Hook offers operators greater versatility.
Vancouver, WA (PRWEB) February 19, 2010
Onboard Systems International, Inc., a leading provider of innovative helicopter cargo hook equipment, announced that its new 2,000 LB TALON Remote Cargo Hook will be on display at the 2010 HAI HeliExpo convention in Houston, Texas (February 21-23). The 2K TALON Remote Cargo Hook is now in production and is available for purchase.
Designed specifically for use with lighter helicopters, the 2K TALON Remote Cargo Hook offers operators greater versatility because it is built around the popular TALON Keeperless Carousel Hook. Using simple hand tools, operators can separate the hook from the cage and use it on a carousel system. Alternatively, operators who already own a TALON Keeperless Carousel Hook can simply order the cage assembly and build their own 2K Remote Cargo Hook.
In addition, Onboard Systems has also developed a Brush Guard Kit that mounts on the side of the TALON Carousel Hook to help keep sticks or branches that may push up against the “Open” knob from causing an inadvertent release. The Brush Guard Kit can be used on the TALON Keeperless Carousel Hook, with or without the cage assembly, and is included as part of the 2K Remote Cargo Hook kit.
Onboard Systems International, Inc. designs and manufactures a complete line of innovative helicopter cargo hook equipment under its TALON™ brand, including belly hooks, cargo hook suspension systems, onboard weighing systems and remote hooks. Its low-weight, high quality products provide helicopter operators with increased cost efficiencies and safety through customer-driven designs, responsive service and support, and low on-going maintenance costs. Founded in 1975, Onboard Systems is a privately held US corporation located in Vancouver, Washington, with an international sales office in the UK.
