Designed and built for use as a personal retention lanyard in a helicopter, the Helicopter Leash utilizes Ronstan's all black, non reflective, oxide plated stainless steel quick release shackle. This unique quick release shackle allows the user to easily release from harness or belt in the event of an unplanned landing, and works even while shackle is weighted. The SOCOM required swedged release pin eliminates plunger pin from releasing in case the retaining ring is broken, and the retaining split ring is TIG welded. Quick release shackle uses hook and loop to secure the grab tab in place to lessen the chance of inadvertent release. Sling is built from 1" Mil Spec 5625 tubular nylon webbing and heavy duty bungee, lanyard breaking strength over 3600 lbf. (16kN) . Textile components all sourced and made in USA by Misty Mountain Threadworks, Inc.
