DESCRIPTION
Originally designed for the US Coast Guard, the LSC Quick
Strop w/ Single Attachment Point (SAP) uses a single lifting
v-ring for connection to the hoist hook. This permits the
rescue technician to place or lace the Strop around the
survivor without having to open the gate of the hoist hook
when working at height, cliffside, etc.
Constructed of
MIL-SPEC webbing with titanium and stainless steel
hardware, the Quick Strop provides a quick, safe means of
hoisting uninjured personnel. The Strop can be placed
under the arms, around the back or over the head of the
survivor in one quick motion. To prevent the survivor from
slipping out, a slide buckle slides down the Strop and
attaches to an adjustable safety crotch strap/triangle, which
is stored in a pocket on the rear of the Strop. Instructions
and pictorials are printed on the Strop.
1.
With strop formed into lifting loop (small v-ring secured
in Talon IIS Safety Hook), the Strop can be placed overthe-head and positioned around the back and under the
arms of the survivor. If survivor is unable to release or
raise hands to enable over-the-head donning of Strop,
remove the small v-ring from the Talon IIS Safety Hook
and unlace from the slide buckle. Pass Quick Strop
under the arms and around upper chest of survivor to
form lifting loop.
2.
If small v-ring is removed from Talon IIS Safety Hook,
reinsert through the slide buckle and secure to the
Talon IIS Safety Hook. Pull slide buckle down both
webbing legs to snug Strop around upper chest (under
arms).
With adjuster positioned in front of chest,
remove the safety crotch strap/triangle from pocket,
pass between the legs of survivor and clip snap hook
onto slide buckle loop.
Adjust as required, leaving slightly loose, as safety
strap/triangle will pull up during hoist/lifting.
Ensure the large lifting v-ring is secured to helicopter
hoist hook or recovery hook.

WARRANTY
LSC products are warranted to the first consumer purchaser to be
free from defects in material or workmanship for a period of twelve
(12) months. Please contact LSC for our complete Warranty
information and Policies, or visit our website.
Ensure survivor keeps arms down and folded across
chest during lift. See pictorial on inside of Strop.
Do not fold the padded area of the Strop.
INSPECTION
Inspect all materials, webbing, and hardware for cuts,
abrasions, cracks, deterioration, and excess wear.
Remove from service any Strop with damage.
Every 6 months, apply a 600 lb load to the extended
Strop (v-ring to v-ring). Repeat the 600 lb load test a
second time, but with the extended strop from the Talon
IIS Safety Hook to the small v-ring.
MAINTENANCE
1. Rinse thoroughly with fresh water, and air-dry the Strop
after salt-water exposure.
2. Check the slide buckle and safety strap snap hook for
proper operation. Fold the safety crotch strap/triangle
in accordion fashion and re-stow in stowage pocket;
leaving snap hook out/exposed for quick deployment.
Ensure all snap fasteners are secured.
3. If excessively soiled, hand wash with mild detergent
and warm water. Thoroughly rinse with fresh water.
