    Question Stokes Basket

    Does anyone know the manufacturer of a collapseable (roll up) Stokes basket? I have seen them in Australia and the US.

    We made our own two-piece Stokes. Cut one in half; weld 6" steel bar (3" in tube frame on one half, leave 3" sticking out). Do this for all steel tube runners. We made a simple "pinning" system for holding the pieces together. Have a local HAVAC shop bend you some small, thin lengths of sheetmetal to cover exposed wires. Braze in place.

    We use an alum. backpack frame (some custom hold downs) to carry it. Have used it MANY times, for MANY years to carry hikers out of the backcountry. It's never faild us.

    Check out Fallright in Perth, W.A. and look at the Evacuation Body Splint.

    If that's too far, go to Chubb Fire or Quell Fire and Safety. They're agents for Fallright and can get them for you.
