Pull, Use and Release: The New Gear Keeper® Integrated Retractable Holster Keeps Gear Ready for Action and Protected When Not in Use

When battling the problems of having important gear ready for action yet stowed and protected at the conclusion of its operation, the innovators at Hammerhead Industries, Inc. got to thinking - and testing - a new gear attachment system that combines the security of a holster with the convenience of a retractor. With the introduction of the new Gear Keeper® Integrated Retractable Holster, Hammerhead Industries, Inc. and the military personnel who depend on expertly designed products can say mission accomplished.

After all, the designers at Hammerhead Industries, Inc. took their marching orders from soldiers out in the field - service men and women who know that quick and easy access to gear such as mini flashlights, handheld laser lights and knives can make a difference in ensuring safety and success. The new Gear Keeper Integrated Retractable Holster's compact design is lightweight yet rugged, and is crafted to endure punishing environments and stand up to rough use and abuse.

Securely sequestered in the holster, gear is protected from damp, dirt, grit and grime - not to mention loss. Gear is also held close to the body so that it remains quiet, making the war against dangling equipment, exposed to damage and giving away a position, officially over.

When vital gear is called into action, it can report in a moment's notice. Thanks to the new Gear Keeper Integrated Retractable Holster's ingenious design, the user can quickly gain access to the knife, flashlight or other key item and run it through its paces. Then the equipment can either be immediately returned to the holster, or it can be released and left dangling - safe from loss - to be later stowed in the holster when convenient.

Three models offer options out in the field. Small Retractable Holster HR9-0020
features a 1"x 3/4" x 4" MOLLE Mount with a 3 oz. Retractor force and an extension of
36". Small Retractable Holster HR9-0021 also features a 1" x 3/4" x 4" MOLLE Mount,
but has a 6 oz. Retractor force and an extension of 28". Medium Retractable Holster
HR9-5041 is beefier with a 2 1/2"x 1 1/2" x 5" MOLLE Mount, a 6 oz. Retractor force
and an extension of 36".
