VSP-QRS – Blaze/Hot Pink - Quick Release Tactical Strap FAQ
Q: Why would I want/need to use a Quick Release Strap?
A: In situations where you need to secure your weapon, but also need to be able to retrieve it immediately, the QR Tactical Straps require one quick pull to release your weapon.
Q: What is the difference between a regular strap and the QR Tactical Strap?
A: Standard straps are one piece units designed to use both strap slots to secure your weapon. This method provides superior holding strength but can take an extra one to two seconds to release. The Quick Release Tactical Strap is a two piece overlapping system. Each piece has a built in D Ring that secures it to separate strap slots on opposite sides of the MPWH. The Tactical Strap has an elongated tab comprised of two layers of sonically welded Velcro. A quick pull on the tab releases your weapon immediately.
Q: Does the QRS Tactical Strap provide enough holding strength?
A: Yes. However, the standard strap design provides more because it is threaded through both Strap Slots which allows the strength of the Weaponholder to become part of the holding force. While still anchored to the Strap Slots, Quick Release Straps rely more on the holding force of the Velcro which is approximately 8 lbs. per square inch of engaged hook to loop.
Q: How do I decide which one to use?
A: If the speed of retrieving your weapon is more important than holding force, use the QR Tactical Strap. If retrieval speed is not a concern, we recommend the standard strap as it will provide more securing force to prevent damage to your weapon.
Q: What’s the difference between the QRS-Tactical Strap and the QRC-Tactical Strap?
A: The QRS-Tactical Strap is designed to be used when you have Sheaths mounted to the MPWH. The QRC-Tactical Strap in designed to be used when the Barrel Clip is mounted.
Tip: The VS-QRS can be mounted on the MPWH to accommodate both right and left handed operation.
Q: Do I ever need to replace the strap?
A: You may have to depending on the number of open/close cycles your strap is subjected to. Velcro will lose its strength over time. If you notice your strap’s peel strength is starting to weaken, replace it as soon as possible.
Q: Can I clean my Velcro strap?
A: Over time, the hook surface can pick up lint and other debris that can affect its ability to grip the loop surface. Cleaning debris out of the hooks is similar to cleaning hairbrushes: using a stiff brush or another piece of hook are the best methods. If this does not work, replace the strap.
Tip: To help keep your strap clean, engage the hook and loop sections when not in use. This will help keep it clean and extend the life of your strap.
