LSC Baskets are designed to last for twenty years of service. The reason many do not make it that long is excessive wear to the tubing. Aircraft non-skid and concrete can wear the tubing thin over time and ruin the basket. Protect your investment in our rescue baskets and litters with our new Skid Shoes. The sacrificial plastic shoes securely attach to the frame of our rescue baskets (and Litters) and can greatly extend the service life of the devices while protecting the flooring in helicopter cabins. The skid shoes create 5.28 square inches (34 square cm) of surface area which reduces the point loading on composite cabin floors to 43 PSI. All skid shoes come with tie straps and adhesive tape installed.
