Our “Hi-Viz” Cable Splice Rescues SAR Missions

Helicopter rescue teams rely on their hoist systems to perform under tough conditions. But the cable itself can be a weak link in the system. If the cable breaks or becomes frayed, the entire mission is placed at risk and may have to be scuttled. This can have dire consequences when lives are at stake. Capewell’s patented cable splices are essential tools for helicopter crews everywhere. If a cable breaks or becomes compromised, a crewmember simply wraps the bitter end of the cable around the cable splice and resumes the mission.  And now for the first time, our industry-standard cable splices are available with a durable high-visibility neon yellow finish. The brighter color makes it easier to see and safer to use when deployed.
