Abstract:

The invention applies to the latches of extraction parachutes in cargo parachute systems, these latches being intended for fastening of the cargo platform to the floor of the aircraft, for pulling of the platform out of the aircraft, and for disconnection of the extraction parachute. The peculiarity of the proposed latch consists in the fact that the lift lever of the pin is set up on an axle fixed into the case of the latch at both ends, whereby inseparability of the lever from the latch is brought about.
