MC2 Storm Lashing

Many of our products have been developed through requests by customers. When a device was required to tie down the EH101 Merlin Helicopter securely to the deck of a ship, Agusta-Westland turned to Cargo Aids and the MC2 STORM LASHING was developed. This polyester webbing tie-down has a fast single action, over centre mechanism that gives tension and locking in one movement.

Ratchet straps

Quick release is also achieved in one easy action. The MC2 STORM LASHING has a unique clutch which means that slack can be taken up without reloading the mechanism. The webbing is treated to resist abrasion and the effects of sunlight. The mechanical components are of replaceable corrosion resistant steel selected to give maximum durability.


The unit incorporates a web tidy to ensure compact and safe storage of excess webbing and its unique mechanism is a patented design. The MC2 has a maximum life of 10 years comprising up to 5 years storage, plus 5 years in service, which can be extended through general refurbishment and replacement of the webbing and load bearing components.
