Reserve Ripcord Handle

Avoid accidental reserve deployments.

Mirage Systems offers both traditional metal handles and soft handles.  Both utilize a steel cable and pin for proven reliability.  When it comes to your reserve ripcord, we like the long established durability of steel.  Our reserve ripcord cable travels a direct path to your reserve closing loop.

Mirage reserve ripcords are pocketed inside the main lift web, not just Velcro’d to the back.  This provides maximum protection from dislodging and helps prevent the handle from rolling under the lift web and out of reach.  When you reach for your reserve ripcord it’s good to know it will be where you expect it.

Metal Handle

Mirage’s metal handle is custom built to be slightly shorter than the D and angled from top to bottom, reducing the risk of snagging while still providing adequate size for a single or double-handed grip.  The handle assemblies are built to TSO C23-d specifications and are individually proof loaded to 600 pounds before we accept them for use.  These handles can easily be fitted to older rigs in the field.

Soft Handle

Mirage soft reserve ripcords are actually still metal handles!  For those that prefer a soft reserve ripcord, we build ours to the same specifications and proof loading as our metal handles.  Built around a full length metal insert they provide the same strength and durability as our metal handles.  You can squeeze your Mirage soft reserve ripcord all you like; it will never go soft or flat.

Soft reserve handles are resistant to inadvertent snagging and floating, are offered in any color, and may be embroidered.  The soft handle is great for use in conjunction with the Unisyn harness, avoiding the introduction of a stiff handle into a very flexible harness style.  Both Free-flyers and Flat-flyers benefit from the use of this handle, but because of its resistance to snagging, Free-flyers consider this handle a must!

 


The substitution of any of the following components with a component not manufactured by Mirage Systems, Inc. is NOT AUTHORIZED:

  • Reserve parachute deployment bag and bridle (Freebag)
  • Reserve pilot chute
  • Reserve ripcord
  • Reserve static line (RSL)
  • Trap System™️ components (RSL, Trap Line, Main Risers)

Substitution of the Mirage reserve ripcord with components made by another manufacturer is prohibited, and voids the TSO.

Don’t guess!  If you are uncertain of the correct ripcord length, provide the serial number and we will look it up.  Check the rig’s label to find the serial number.  The label is located in the pocket behind the left ring cover.  Left and right is as you’re wearing the rig.

  • Mirage ripcords are measured from the end of the pin to the end of the ball.
  • Soft handles have the length on their label.
  • Yoke extensions are marked on the label with ‘ext’.  If ‘ext’ is not shown, then it is a standard yoke.
  • Standard ring covers are 4.5″ long (top to bottom), mini ring covers are 3.5″ long.
  • All reserve ripcords should have at least 2″ of slack when the pin is seated.
