Composite Glove Disconnect Bearing Assembly

The full-pressure Glove Disconnect Bearing assembly is manufactured from lightweight carbon fiber and features a highly reliable positive locking ring coupled to a very low torque sealed bearing. The locking ring design enables the wearer to easily connect or disconnect the gloves to/from the spacesuit unaided. The low-torque bearing enables effortless rotational mobility in both pressurized and unpressurized modes, thus minimizing crew member stress and fatigue.
