Many of our products have been developed through requests by customers. When a device was required to tie down the EH101 Merlin Helicopter securely to the deck of a ship, Agusta-Westland turned to Cargo Aids and the MC2 Storm Lashing was developed. This polyester webbing tie-down has a fast-single action, over centre mechanism that gives tension and locking in one movement.
Quick release is also achieved in one easy action. The MC2 has a unique clutch which means that slack can be taken up without reloading the mechanism. The webbing is treated to resist abrasion and the effects of sunlight. The mechanical components are of replaceable Stainless steel selected to give maximum durability.
