This is a recovery latch that we built for our latest Seaeye Saab Falcon. Seaeye sell a similar running lock latch but we decided to make one ourselves for a few reasons:
It was cheaper
It was quicker to make it ourselves
and most importantly:
All the other recovery latches that we’ve seen require a re-termination when it’s installed or removed from the umbilical. On the recovery latch that we built, the bullet and latch can be split apart for removal or clamped around the umbilical for installation.
Loading more stuff…
Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
