|Hinged pitot tube protector will open automatically in take off at speed of about 40 MPH and close automatically at end of landing roll. Fits pitot tube with 1/2" O.D.|
Installed two on a Cessna 182 for pitot & D-100 angle of attack probe. Worked get.
I really like the pitot tube protector. It would be better if the legs were longer to accommodate larger pitot tubes. I had to add them to mine to make it fit.
Works great but is made for a very small pitot tube. I had to modify it to fit my pitot tube.
