LSC’s original compact Rescue Basket is standard equipment aboard all US Coast Guard rescue helicopters and in-service with numerous international military & civilian operators. The frame opening has been enlarged to better accommodate two adults without increasing the overall dimensions, and an integrated, yet flexible stainless steel bail retainer has been added to keep the bails from dropping after removing the hoist hook. The frame of the Basket is constructed of tubular stainless steel for low maintenance. The bail assembly folds into the basket for compact stowage. The bottom is enclosed with a plastic mesh liner. The basket provides excellent flotation performance and is self-righting with 100% reserve buoyancy. Float covers have reflective markings and are printed with safety pictorials.
