Scope:

The purpose of this SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) is to standardize the basic design, performance, and testing requirements for “Cargo Stoppers” cargo tie-down accessories to be used in conjunction with approved restraint straps meeting AS5385C (TSO C-172) requirements.

The lack of an agreed industry standard resulted in uncertainties about their operational capabilities so that it was deemed advisable to specify the applicable design, minimum performance, and testing requirements, since Cargo Stoppers are used as part of cargo tie-down arrangements that must meet regulatory airworthiness requirements.

Rationale:

This Aerospace Standard was prepared in order to replace former Aerospace Recommended Practice ARP6022, developed in order to specify basic design, performance, and testing requirements for cargo tie-down accessories known as “Cargo Stoppers”. Sub-committee AGE-2A determined that, because these devices were used as part of tie-down arrangements meeting airworthiness criteria, they should be covered by a standard rather than a recommendation. Revision A updates the references which became obsolete subsequent to publication of TSO-C202.
