General

  • The Grenade Trigger Pouch has two patents in the USA (US 8523030 US 8651347) and around the globe.
  • The Grenade Trigger Pouch was under development for 3 years with the full co-operation of the Israeli special ops unit YAMMAM.
  • The Grenade Trigger Pouch provides safe and quick action for all types of grenades for the operative in the field (carrying and deploying).
  • The Grenade Trigger Pouch provides the operative with a significant advantage in comparison to a traditional pouch, allowing the operative to deploy and through the grenade in a quick and safe manner when required.
  • Fragmentation grenades often have different locking systems, which take precious seconds to remove.
  • When in battle, there is little or no time to extract a fragmentation grenade, let alone to release all the locks. Soldiers have on occasion thrown grenades that they have deployed, without removing all the safety locks.
  • The Trigger Pouch has several safety mechanisms some of which are parallel to the safety systems that are on the fragmentation grenades.

Operational Directions

The Grenade Trigger Pouch provides many advantages in comparison to a tradition pouch:

  • Cuts the extraction time of a grenade by six.
  • Deployment of the grenade (being able to extract the grenade) in a safe and quick manner without wasting precious time.
  • The Trigger Pouch allows the operative to extract a grenade in a one hand action, while keeping eyes on the target and one hand on the operatives’ weapon (a traditional pouch requires a two-handed action).
  • Left & Right-handed action.
  • Continuous eye contact with target (with a conventional pouch the operative will most times need to look at what he is doing).
  • Quick deployment/extraction with gloved hands and without the need to look.
  • Safer than traditional pouches.
