Quick Release Connector

The Quick Release Connector (QRC) is compatible with approved helicopter hoists or HEC fixed line systems such as Emergco HETS™. It is used to provide a user self-releasable option for connecting a harness and/or equipment to the Main Attachment Point (MAP) on the HETS™ Main Load Line assembly or to the main connection point on a compatible hoist. The QRC uses a Cape-well type connector that will release under load when required.

The QRC is an advanced user option – it is recommended users take the Emergco HETS™ OEM training prior to using this item. It allows the user additional escape options in case of aircraft emergency while providing a means of connecting the user to the MAP.
