First Generation V-22 Control Grip

Similar to the Cobra Grip in functionality, the First Generation V-22 Control Grip delivers excellent EMI/RFI protection with the aluminum body design, and simplifies switch replacement and maintenance, due to the two-piece handle assembly.

Guardian’s in-house engraving capability made it easier for Boeing and Bell to create identification on flat and curved surfaces. Triple redundant switches complete the aerospace design, bringing safety and functionality together in the First Generation V-22 control grip.
