Automatic Cargo Parachute Release is a load relief actuated. It is by far the
the most reliable and versatile release available. The unit is completely sealed
against moisture, dirt and tampering. It does not require any type of adjustment,
setting or arming by the user.
The release incorporates a hydraulic timing delay which is actuated by the
load tension. This delay is long enough to prevent disconnect during the opening
shocks, yet short enough to permit low altitude delivery. After the delay
period, the release is in safe but armed condition, ready for instant disconnect
when the load comes to rest, whether on land or water. They are immediately
ready for re-use by merely re-inserting the release bolt and snapping the
release jaws shut. They will then automatically re-set and re-seal themselves,
ready for use again.
