If you don't have a cape, well, it's good to have another way out. Capewell Components makes life support and aerial delivery products for commercial and military aerospace customers. Life support offerings include parachute releases (the US forces used the famous 'Capewell' Parachute release for more than 60 years), canopy releases, belts and harnesses, ripcord assemblies and lanyards, oxygen mask fittings, and cable and wire assemblies. Cargo delivery products include airdrop platforms, cargo restraints, cargo towplates, hardware components, airdrop containers, slings, and rigging supplies.

Capewell Components was established in 1881. It originally manufactured horseshoe nails for customers such as the US Calvary. The US military has remained its primary client.
