ITW-Nexus GRIMLOC (Black)
Fits 1" Webbing, integral drain port Low-IR, 80 lb. break strength The Fastex Grimloc Locking D-Ring can be used on any 1" wide piece of webbing and replaces the metal carabiner for attachment of lanyards, weapons, and accessories.
It is fabricated from high strength lightweight plastic, incorporates GhillieTex IR-signature reduction technology, and resists solar heating. Its latch is designed with a detent to maintain an open position if needed and, while strong enough to carry equipment, it will break away with a soldier's weight, eliminating snagging hazards which can cause serious injuries.
The Grimloc Locking D-Ring's release button is textured for ease of use with gloved hands and works as a pump for purging trapped sand or water through integral drain holes. Since the Grimloc is made from plastic, it will not serve as a platform for ricochets or become a secondary projectile.
The Grimloc was developed by ITW Nexus for the US Marine Corps when they were looking for an attachment system for use with their hydration packs. The Grimloc attaches to any 1" or smaller webbing and can be used to attach gear to a pack so it is readily available instead of stuffed away inside a pocket. The Grimloc is strong and secure, but will break away under the weight of a person. It is also IR signal reducing, if you happen to be in a line of work where that makes a difference.
Used extensively by the United States Army and Marine Corps. MADE IN U.S.A.
