PSIGEAR – Hinge Quick Release Buckle

IMG_5414

Hinge quick release buckle is made of high strength polymer, with anti-corrosion springs, suitable for being used in humid and underwater environments. Lightweight, thin, and small, it can be easily, reliably connected to tactical gear with two pieces of one-inch woven tapes, and can rotate in a small scale after the connection to increase flexibility.

    The only improvement I can conceive: a field expedient version, as I’m not going to disassemble PALS webbing on my gear. Attachment to multiple channels as well as 2 rows or MALICE clip attachment. Obviously, I could hack saw them myself, but, given the 2 row attachment, that’s probably not a choice.

    I could see using this a LOT, with some changes to how it attaches…

      Just make a cut shaped like in the replacement buckles from ITW and you are good to go.

        Agreed – I prefer this sort of thing to be a sew in deal. Heat knifing the webbing and resewing it is not hard to have done where I live though.

    Very interesting… I’ll have to order a few to play with… I’m intrigued.

    Never heard of these guys, but I bought this instantly. I’ve tried to get Point Blank, Bushido Tactical, or Austri-Alpin to sell me those HALO buckles they use (Also called WARSOC H2 and H3 buckles)
    ( http://soldiersystems.net/2013/11/27/cobra-halo-buckle-austrialpin-bushido-tactical/ ), but without success – they’ll only sell them as part of their (very expensive and not what I want) cummerbund upgrade kits.

    I also briefly had one of the Ares Armor (Now AWC) Derma kits a couple years ago, but I sent it back because they sent me the wrong color and still haven’t received a replacement.

    I’ve tried the First Spear Tubes too – those I can get – but it’s kind of (not always) a two handed operation to disconnect those things.

    It seems like the First Spear designs , a China company may just right the way in the market. Or they will base on something same
    as the First Spear. Who knows?

    Not berry and not all that strong… under 200 pounds break strength…

    interesting concept … the original slide buckle ‘tubes did have a hinging feature but it was not strong enough either… the current ‘tubes ‘ also has a major issue with heat and strength as I understand it
