For Sale: LM Explosive Device Simulator Bracket

Price: US$ 24

  • Wire clamp and screw clamp assembled onto a Teflon base.

  • Explosive devices were used for opening valves, deploying structures, and breaking connections
  • Made by Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corporation for use on the Lunar Module program.
  • Grumman part number LDW420-12386-1.
  • New spare part.
  • This item came from the Charles Bell estate. Bell was a NASA employee at the Kennedy Space Center and a lifelong collector of space artifacts.
