Cable Carrying Crocodile


The newest addition to our product portfolio.

Aircraft cables and sockets are constantly subjected to high levels of impact damage, extreme wear, and negligence. Together these factors result in many problems at busy airports.

Crocodiles considerably improve the life span of both the sockets and cables by helping to negate many of the negative influencing factors.

Our crocodile,  which is engineered to be simple, reliable, and hard wearing is available with a number of design features that can be adapted to fit the specific requirements.

These include the number of beam modules and orientation of the unit. While all units benefit from the “plug and play” components allowing for ease of replacement and repair in situ.
