This notice summarizes the inadequacies of hook and loop fasteners as a means for securing automatic fixed AF and automatic potable AP ELTs, and avoids placing an undue burden on aircraft owners while acknowledging the voluntary efforts of ELT manufacturers to improve designs. Charisse R. Telephone , fax , email to: Charisse. Green faa. The FAA recommends voluntary changes to existing ELTs installed with hook and loop fasteners because of their tendency to become dislodged from their mounting trays on impact.

The separation of those ELTs from their mounting trays caused their antenna connection to sever, thus rendering the ELTs to be ineffective and unable to perform their intended function.

Hook and loop fasteners were not an acceptable means of compliance to meet the mounting and retention requirements of the ELT TSOs. While the evaluation of installation approval using hook and loop fasteners may meet the TSO requirements for retention forces in laboratory conditions, accident investigations found these fasteners did not perform their intended function. The agency identified the following concerns after completing its evaluation of the use of hook and loop fasteners:.

There is no repeatable method for installation and no method to evaluate the tension of the hook and loop fastener. The allowance for pilots to secure ELTs to the aircraft when changing ELT batteries further increases the potential for inconsistent and unsatisfactory installations. The comment, by ELTA, stated that there is some potential confusion as to which ELTs were applicable under the FAA's proposed voluntary change from the use of hook and loop fasteners to metallic straps.

The FAA acknowledges this comment. This final Federal Register notice clarifies the FAA recommends voluntary changes to the securing mechanisms for automatic fixed and automatic portable ELTs. Section 2. The FAA evaluated the mounting requirements and retention test and determined the standards do not adequately address the use of hook and loop fasteners.
