September 24, 2019 (Birmingham, AL) — Emergent Rescue Systems, LLC today announced the release of its newest innovation, the UPC4 Plate Carrier Adapter System. The UPC4 was developed initially for HRE Pack attachment to the most common industry PCs. The end result, however, is a modular system which adapts to any PALS/MOLLE equipped surface. Additionally, its adjustable quick release points allow fast detachment and simple reattachment.
The UPC4 is a full solution system with modular components.
Shoulder Quick Release Straps – Shoulder Quick Release Straps provide multiple quick release points across the shoulder and plate carrier front. Its shoulder QR points can adjust to any position along the PC shoulder straps.
Shoulder Quick Release Covers – Shoulder Quick Release Covers provide a simple protective solution to securing cross-shoulder items. With a trifold design and QR pull tabs, removal and reattachment is simple.
Side Quick Release Straps – Side Quick Release Straps provide QR attachment points along the cummerbund that include strap tension adjustment at the ITW QASM buckles. For rear pack attachment, G-Hooks provide a low profile connection that is secure enough for harsh environments, yet detachable without a tool.
Vertical Adapter Lock – Vertical Adapter Locks convert horizontal to vertical PALS rows with a dual row adapter lock that remains in place under heavy load tension. VALs are designed as an adapter and stabilizer, eliminating QASM adapter twisting from single PALS row attachment.
“When we started getting inquiries about HRE Pack attachment, we produced a simple prototype for what seemed to be a simple problem,” said Emergent Rescue Systems founder, Chris Richards. “After several changes from user evaluations, we realized the extent of the universal PC attachment capability gap. The resulting UPC4 is unique, adaptive, and modular…8-9 design revisions later.”
