.75” x 3.0” Locking Strip
Tip: Always carry a few extra .75” x 3.0” Locking Strips as well as Prep Wipes and Primer Sticks. You’ll be surprised how often you’ll find places you can regularly store your weapon.
Q: Do I need to use a Prep Wipe before applying the Locking Strip.
A: Yes. Often surfaces that look clean aren’t.
Q: Do I need to use a Primer Stick.
A: Yes. If you plan to use your system within 72 hours you should use a Primer Stick. Using a Primer Stick will allow the adhesive on the Locking Strip to achieve its maximum cure strength in 1 hour versus 72 hours without the Primer. Applying the BPK to a Locking Strip before the adhesive has cured will most likely result in a weaker mount and may cause the Locking Strip to come off of the mounting surface when the BPK is removed.
Q: Should I ever replace the Locking Strip.
A: Yes. Locking Strip will wear out. Locking Strip can remain strong for up to 1000 closure cycles depending on conditions and usage. That said, use your judgement. If the Locking Strip on your MPWH, BPK or any of the surfaces you’ve mounted strips to appears damaged or worn, replace it. Even if there’s no visible sign of wearing and the holding strength seems to be weakening, replace the locking strip. This is a quick and easy step to insure your system maintains its peak performance.
Q: How do I clean my Locking Strip?
A: The two easiest and most effective methods are blowing compressed air or running water. This should help to loosen and remove dirt and debris. Be careful when cleaning your Locking Strip not to damage the stems. In the event you are unable to remove materials that are causing problems, remove and replace the Locking Strip.
