Down Range Gear NOD Retention Devices

Down Range Gear has introduced two new NOD retention devices to augment their original design. Both are designed to retain and prevent the loss of a helmet mounted NOD but offer slightly different features.

With the ver 2 design a female side release buckle is pinned between the NOD plate and the helmet to form a sturdy socket that will remain on the helmet. The male end of the buckle is tethered to the NOD body via tension adjustable shock cord.

This system can also be upgraded with an improved dummy cord, snapping a female side release buckle onto a PALS loop to secure the NOD while stored.

The ver 3 is a streamlined design and features a male side release buckle that is anchored to the helmet under the NOD plate and tethered to length/tension adjustable shock cord. A short length of webbing keeps the female buckle secured to the device.

Optional steel cable ties are available for environmental extremes that require more than plastic and both versions are available in Coyote Tan and Foliage Green from www.downrangegear.com.
