Abstract : A launch-chute extender is disclosed that snap-fits onto the end of a buoy container in an aircraft that carries stores internally. This extender, by adding its tubular configuration to the end of the buoy container, provides guiding clearance to selected stores to enable them to exit from the underside of the aircraft without becoming jammed.
