Archetype Rocketry cable cutter for parachutes

Author: Gene Engelgau | Published: Dec 11, 2015

Use this handy device to hold a parachute pack together until actuation. We now have this in stock!

The Archetype Cable Cutter is designed to be the simplest single-tube dual deployment unit possible. The Cable Cutter can be positioned next to the parachute, the shroud lines, shock cord, or attached to quick links like typical tethers.

Use a wire tie to wrap and secure the parachute. When the Cable Cutter is actuated via a small pyro charge, it cuts the wire tie.

The system is entirely contained (no external moving parts) and is only 0.375" diameter and about 1.75" long. These are now made by Twister Rocketry.
