  • The parking brake release safety switch allows the unit to “roll” during capture so the aircraft doesn’t move, the hydraulic foot brake remains functional at all times
  • Throttle speed limit safety switch reduces unit speed when approaching the aircraft with cradle down
  • Forward motion safety switch disengages the throttle when the forward motion safety bar contacts the aircraft nose tire, this prevents the operator from pushing on the nose tire
  • The gate lock and cradle locator safety switch locates the cradle and stops the “cradle down” movement when the cradle is lowered to the ground, the gate lock prevents “cradle open” movement when the cradle is up
