Onboard Systems International, LLC, a leading provider of innovative helicopter cargo hook equipment, has developed a keeperless version of its 6,000 lb./2,722 kg capacity TALON 6K Remote Cargo Hook, as well as a retrofit kit that will allow operators to convert existing keepered 6K Remote Cargo Hooks to a keeperless configuration as needed.
The TALON Keeperless Retrofit Kit for the 6K Half Cage Remote Hook (P/N 212-058-00) allows operators to convert their existing TALON 6K Remote Cargo Hooks into keeperless hooks as needed in the field. Operators can switch back to the original keepered version at any time by following the instructions in the documentation. In addition, operators who purchase the new TALON 6K Remote Cargo Hook (P/N 528-019-07) can convert it to the keepered version by contacting their sales rep to order the necessary parts. Finally, these hooks can be reconfigured into either the keepered or keeperless version by the factory during the standard overhaul or repair process. Please contact us for more information.
