Hammerhead Introduces Gear Keeper Retractable Sidearm Tether

</td></tr></tbody></table>Hammerhead Industries - a leading provider of high performance firearm attachment systems for the Navy Seals, Army and Marines, to name a few, is introducing its latest military-grade retractable lanyard that will securely attach a soldier's firearm to his/her side in order to prevent loss and damage - while still allowing full movement and usage of the gun should duty call for a quick draw.

Two models are available to suit a variety of specific applications: the Gear Keeper RT2 Low Force Model™ and the Gear Keeper RT3 Super Force Model™. The Gear Keeper RT2 Low Force provides no resistance on the sidearm, providing shooters with full range of motion while remaining tethered and snag-free. This 36-inch extension system is preferred by shooters who want to carry their sidearm for a longer period of time. The Gear Keeper RT3 Super Force provides 24-ounces of retraction and can extend up to 32 inches - easily suspending a fully loaded handgun while providing additional stabilization for aiming.

The Gear Keeper RT2 Low Force Model is designed with a sturdy stainless steel cable with nylon coating, and the Super Force Model is designed with a nylon braid over a Kevlar core - a low-profile lanyard that allows full mobility without snagging, and a high impact case and stainless steel spring and hardware. The RT2 Low Force has a 60-pound break strength, while the RT3 Super Force has an 80-pound break strength. Both are strong enough to withstand harsh environments, but will break away should entanglement occur.

Each model can be securely fastened to a shooter's gun belt or MOLLE system via the model's fitting Velcro Strap Mount (RT2-5530-A or the RT3-5533). The RT3 Super Force can also be attached via an available Clamp on Rotating Belt Clip (RT3-5563). Like all Gear Keeper units, both models come equipped with a patented flushing system that quickly clears sand and debris, as well as a unique Quick Connect-II system that makes connecting and disconnecting firearms a breeze.
