New Stainless Steel 4,500 Capacity Remote Cargo Hook Released

Olympia, WA, – Mechanical Specialties, LLC has released the first of its next generation Stainless Steel remote cargo hooks. This first being released is a 4,500 lb capacity version. This is the same physical size as the model 301, 3,000 lb remote cargo hook, which has been the most popular cargo hook in the world over the last 35 years of production. The new model 450 carries on that legacy with more robust and corrosion resistant Stainless Steel construction and higher capacity. It just made a great cargo hook better!

“Minuteman Aviation, Inc. has been a loyal cargo hook customer for over 20 years. Our hooks are a far superior product than anything else on the market and are designed by operators, for operators. We are pleased to already have the first four Model 450 hooks on the way to Minuteman Aviation Inc., now!”
