Grimloc Lightweight, locking clip for webbing straps
The Grimloc is a light plastic clip designed originally for military use on 1' MOLLE webbing straps. The military was looking for a fastening solution to mount items directly to the MOLLE webbing found on rucksacks, body armor, and load bearing vests. The army was interested in a solution that was strong enough to carry equipment that required quick access yet would 'break away' with a soldier's weight.
Often soldiers would mount lanyards directly to the MOLLE webbing, or to large metal Carabineers utilized in climbing. These methods would not allow for a quick break if the lanyard was snagged jumping and could result in serious injury to the soldier. The Grimloc would be able to break under stress allowing a soldier to quickly escape snags that would otherwise endanger him.
Now widely available to the public, Zeagle offers them as an accessory for the Rapid Diver system to attach items to the MOLLE webbing sewn onto the vest. You can attach items such as lights, reels, SMBs, and a variety of other items. As seen to the left the Grimloc is semi-permanently attached to the MOLLE webbing and the clip hinges open allowing you to attach your accessories. Under enough stress the Grimloc will break into pieces allowing you to escape potentially hazardous snags underwater.
The Grimloc is available in black, olive drab and tan.
