New TangoDown Foregrip Features Quick-Detach Lock-Lever

August 04, 2008  | 

TangoDown’s battle-tested grips are now available with a self-locking,quick-detach attachment, featuring a Lock-Lever mount, making the gripsfast to mount onto a Mil-Std 1913 accessory rail.

The Lock-Levermount is a throw-lever style mount in which a lever pivots side-to-sideto securely lock the mount’s clamp bar onto an M1913 rail. However,unlike other brands of lever mounts, the Lock-Lever requires no toolsto adjust and locks itself automatically when pressed shut.

“TangoDown’s vertical foregrip has proven to be a rugged piece of gear with its dual locking bars, but some customers wanted a quick-detach mechanism that doesn’t have to be slid down the rail, requiring the removal of other accessories. Our new Lock-Lever mount is fast and secure, yet just as strong and reliable as our classic foregrip,” said company founder and president Jeff Cahill.

The Lock-Lever mount, made by American Defense Mfg. to TangoDown’s specifications, is CNC machined from aerospace-grade aluminum and features a stainless steel cross pin nut and spring-tensioned clamp bar. The clamp bar is quickly and easily adjusted for the correct tension on the rail by simply pressing on the Lock-Lever itself to expose a nut that is turned by mere finger pressure to adjust. No tools whatsoever are needed and adjustments take only seconds, yet are rock-solid.

TangoDown’s Lock-Lever mount is available on both the full-size vertical foregrip and the “shorty” version, made for maximum compactness. The grips retain TangoDown’s patented recessed pockets for either Insight or SureFire pressure switches and are available in flat dark earth, foliage green or flat black. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $85.

TangoDown products are produced entirely in the United States and are in use by U.S. and NATO units and are also included in the SOPMOD II kit for U.S. Special Forces.
