Safariland's Equipment Locking System (ELS) Offers Quick and Easy Movement of Accessories of the Body
JACKSONVILLE, Florida – Safariland™, a BAE Systems line of business, introduces its newest offering in its line of Quick Attachment Systems – the Equipment Locking System (ELS). Similar to the popular MOLLE Locking System (MLS) and Quick Locking System (QLS), the ELS is designed specifically for quick and easy transition of tactical accessories on the body.
The ELS provides a secure mounting platform and makes it very convenient to add any tactical accessory in various locations, including belt clips, tactical rigs or directly on MOLLE loops with the use of the Safariland MLS 16 (MOLLE Locking System) Locking Fork. Further, the ELS features a very small footprint of 1 7/8” W x 2 3/4” H, which allows for quickly switching out accessories, while still maintaining the same root product, such as a belt or thigh plate.
The first of the two components, the ELS 34 Locking Fork, mounts to any tactical accessory, such as the Safariland 774 Rifle Mag Pouch, Model 77 Double Magazine Pouch, or impact round cases, and then connects to the ELS 35 Receiver Plate. The ELS 35 Receiver Plate mounts to any thigh mount leg shroud or any other Safariland two-hole accessory location.
Also new are two belts specifically designed to complement the ELS system with pre-cut ELS mounting holes for straight up or angled attachment of the ELS Receiver Plate. The Nylok® Pro Model 4332 ELS Duty Belt features a Buckleless™ design with two large knobs for locking in ELS mounting holes. This 2” (50mm) width belt also features full length hook lining for use with the Bianchi® PatrolTek™ Model 8106 Liner Belt. The Model 032 ELS Competition Belt is 1.5” (38mm) in width, is reinforced to hold heavy competition equipment and is loop lined to hook to the Safariland Model 029 underbelt.
The ELS System is available individually or as the ELS EQUIP-KIT (with two each of the ELS 34 and ELS 35 plates and forks). Colors offered are: Black, Foliage Green, OD Green, FDE Brown, with MSRPs as follows: 6004-34 & 6004-35 are $20.00, and the EQUIP-KIT is $35.00.
The 4332 ELS Duty Belt is available in Black, ballistic weave nylon, and the 032 ELS Competition Belt is available in Black Basket Weave and Carbon Fiber Look finishes.
