Lightweight, Low-Profile, Three-Hole Helmet Mount for NVG’s

Newington, NH, June 25, 2008 --( A new mount for Night Vision Goggles (NVGs) from Wilcox Industries mounts directly to a MICH helmet and incorporates a Universal NVG mount with a breakaway base that is completely constructed from a lightweight aerospace-grade metal. Depending on operational conditions, a switch allows the mount to easily breakaway from the base under conditions such as fast roping, maritime operations, and hard-impact or while entering and exiting mobility platforms reducing the likelihood of neck injury.

Ergonomically positioned controls allow for easy one-handed near/far, vertical or tilt adjustments to create precise modifications to the eye relief of the NVG’s even while handling a weapon. The system is compatible with NVG suites AN/PVS-7A, 7C, 14, 15 or 18. A convenient button flips the mount straight up so that they NVG’s have a low profile when stowed. When the Wilcox AN/NPS Metal Interface Shoe is used a magnetic switch powers the NVG’s off when flipped up.

The Three-Hole NVG Mounting System can be used with the Wilcox NVG Lanyard for secure attachment; preventing loss of the NVG and mount while using the breakaway mode. A black matte finish provides covertness during combat operations. Wilcox’s breakaway universal NVG mount interfaces with the entire L2 series of NVG mounting systems and weighs 5.04 ounces. Wilcox’s Three-Hole Helmet Mount includes a lifetime warranty. Availability and ordering information for the three-hole mount is available by calling Wilcox direct at 603-431-1331.
