Improved Positioning For Klick Fast Connector
The Klick Fast system is the standard connector system for carrying radios and other equipment. HeroQuip was approached by a police force requesting help with a problem many of their officers were facing when attaching a camera to their cap. The angle of the connector resulted in the camera being misaligned with the wearer’s line of sight. Following discussions regarding the issue, we manufactured new police caps with the Klick Fast connector repositioned for both left and right-handed wearers thus solving the incorrect camera angle positioning.
Police Staff Investigator Tabards
A tabard was required for use by search teams who don’t have the full power of a Police Officer but need to to be easily identified showing their authority to search properties.
HeroQuip designed a black police staff investigator tabard to match the branding of the Police standard uniform. The left breast velcro patch allows for the addition of Force or individual identity if required. Police Staff Investigator was added to the rear to provide additional ease of identification.
HeroQuip is currently supplying these Police Staff Investigator Tabards to several UK police forces nationwide.
A New And Improved Dump Pouch
Space on a utility belt is limited, therefore a roll-up dump pouch is a necessity. A Firearms Department was experiencing difficulties with their current dump pouch as the belt loop was too small to feed onto a cargo belt. The colour also clashed with the rest of their uniform and black was requested as the preferred colour. After studying the current pouch and belt a new design was agreed upon and manufactured. This new pouch glides onto the belt with ease. Changing the colour to black means the new pouch blends in with the other accoutrements used by the wearer.
