DescriptionParachute and Deployment Tube
Clip and Swivel (x2)
The Parachute is attached to the bait line and release with the supplied swivels and clips. When the bait release has been pulled by the hawk, the parachute slides from its deployment tube and opens. The parachute creates enough drag to slow the flight of the hawk, making it carry the parachute to the ground away from the main line of the kite or balloon. The advantage of using the parachute is that it can help to prevent the chance of tangling with the main line.

Note: Please use caution when utilizing a parachute with a release system as it will require a relatively open space without trees or obstacles that the parachute could get caught on before it reaches the ground safely. However, most hawks simply carry it straight down to the ground.
Parachutes are available in four bright colors (Neon Pink, Bright Yellow, Neon Green, Blaze Orange) making them easy to see and retrieve from the field.
