Adaptable Belt Mount from High Speed Gear

The Adaptable Belt Mount mounting system from High Speed Gear Inc. is available for 30 of HSGI's most popular products. 

The ABM attachment format offers a sturdy, belt width adjustable, anti-slide application for mounting HSGI products to a belt. This attachment method uses a strip of durable, vinyl-backed 1000D Cordura nylon laminate and reliable YKK snap closure to create a belt loop. Two laser cut slits enable the user to thread the loop smaller or larger for 1.5” – 1.75” belts or 1.75” -2” belts, respectively. The inside of this fashioned belt loop features a patch of hook Velcro designed to match up with the interior loop Velcro of HSGI rigger belts to lock the pouch in the desired position on your belt. 

Additionally, ABM pouches feature a vertical channel behind the mounting panel. On some larger pouches, such as the ABM TACO or Stun Gun TACO, this channel is large enough to pass a belt through to mount the pouch sideways. 

“Sliding a product onto your belt through a belt loop is a simple way to attach it. The Adaptable Belt Mount allows customers to put on their mag pouches, handcuff pouches, tourniquet pouches or other gear quick and easily,” explained Bill Babboni, High Speed Gear vice president of sales and operations. “Keeping the process simple allows the customer to have the gear they need when they need it.” 

The ABM is available 30 High Speed Gear products, including TACOs, medical pouches, radio pouches, handcuff pouches, general purpose pouches, stun gun pouches and shotgun shell pouches. Find the ABM at your favorite High Speed Gear Dealer.

NSSF-McGruff Gun Safety Videos Win Awards

The National Shooting Sports Foundation's McGruff on Gun Safety videos in partnership with the National Crime Prevention Council, Not Cool, Kyle and Molly’s Mischief, each have been awarded Bronze Tellys in the Social Responsibility category for Branded Content in the 40th Annual Telly Awards.

“NSSF is pushing the boundaries for video and television innovation and creativity at a time when the industry is rapidly changing,” said Sabrina Dridje, Managing Director of the Telly Awards. “This award is a tribute to the talent and vision of its creators and a celebration of the diversity of work being made today for all screens.”

“NSSF believes strongly in teaching young children and their parents about firearms safety, and we are thrilled to have the McGruff videos, a creative collaboration with NCPC, honored with prestigious Telly Awards,” said Steve Sanetti, CEO of the National Shooting Sports Foundation. “We hope this recognition will mean an even larger viewership of these videos and their important safety messages.”

“NCPC is delighted to be recognized for the work we’ve done with NSSF on educating children and their families on gun safety,” said Ann Harkins, President and CEO of the National Crime Prevention Council. “The McGruff videos are an informative and fun way to learn about the 4-steps to gun safety, and to get families talking about it together.”
