CBL top attachment cargo handling gear is designed for maximum ease of use. Offering high quality and rugged dependability, our equipment has proven itself in use worldwide for nearly 30 years.

CBL-3L Cargo Hooks are a powered release design for use on unitized cargo. Quick, positive manual hookup to standard or irregular loads is easily accomplished. Capable of accepting both flat or round strapping, the spring- loaded retention latch positively retains the strap or cable. Once the load is stowed or landed, the hook is released by actuation of an internal pneumatic cylinder, or manually if required.

Hook Operation — Rotatable hook piece is prevented from rotating down by rod of spring-loaded piston inserted into recess in hook. Operation of air cylinder pushes piston upwards against spring, lifting rod from seat in hook. Hook piece can then swing down (open). Unloaded hook can be manually removed by pushing spring-loaded retaining latch into recess within underside of body assembly, enabling hook to be slid off cargo cable or strapping.
