    POD-LOC by KMW

    The pod lock KMW is the perfect kit you need for your shooting sessions and it comes with easy to use, on –the- go features. To start with, you would not be doing any adjustments that require tools, so you could just as well tuck your tools away.

    You are in a shooting position and you need to lock and unlock the bipod; all you need are a finger and a thumb and you are done within the blink of an eye.

    Besides, there is minimal cleaning required because the kit is as weather resistant as it is dirt resistant. The pod lock spacer has dust shields that serve as protector for the clutch area of this Harris Bipod products. It has all its internal parts, the spacer included, in stainless steel. The clamp lever body on the other hand, is synthetic.

    You do not even have to touch the lock tension when you need to disengage the internal ratchet. By slightly pulling back the locking lever, you can simply get the internal ratchet disengaged. Snags could be annoying when you are on the move. But parking the pod lock clamp lever against the stock ensures you get as little snags as possible. To aid low visual signature, all stainless steel surfaces have been covered in matted black.

    The specification of the kit components match the standard requirements for use with all US Marine Corps m-40A3 Sniper and S.A.M rifles, as well as the new FBI and BATF sniper rifles.

    Under 2 minutes, your bipod can be restored to issue configuration, because there is no permanent alteration done.

    Users of POD-LOC.

    The acceptance level of this kit has been impressive, as it has become the favourite of several military organizations and law enforcement agencies, recommended as a standard item on their precision rifle.

    This kit has also found faithful lovers in recreational shooters, big games hunters, competition shooters as well as varmint hunters.
    It is hard to pin down a precise number of the users of this kit, because we do not sell our products directly, we work with a distribution network. But we do know about the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI, U.S Navy, British Military, U.S Marine Corps and the Australian Military.

    The list also includes over 20 State Police SWAT units and numerous individual police officers across the US.

    Why did KMW develop the pod-loc?

    Towards the end of 1999, KMW began to work on improving on a defect that was causing us so much concern at the time. But we were not the only ones who had noticed this challenge. There were several interviews conducted time over time with different teams and the result came out the same. It was hard to consistently lock the swivel feature of the bipod. To make this happen, the knurled nut had to be tightened enough by hand, but this was always proving difficult. Then, KMW swung into action. We got the right people looking for an existing kit that could give us pointers as to ways of improving on this singular defect (every other feature on the bipod was perfect.).

    As we would have it, the search returned empty no matter where we looked. There was simply nothing that could help us. Our answer laid in the improvements KMW was already experimenting on my personal bipods, and that was how we began work to make available a kit that could efficiently upgrade these bipods.

    The POD-LOC should be a standard item!

    This POD-LOC works excellent. I could not adequately lock my bipod in position before this arrived. Installation was straightforward with the included instructions - all you need is a 1/4" socket - and now it locks up like a charm in moments. Also, it is great to be able to swivel the arm out of the way and then move it right back in seconds to use the device. Much better than a solid arm. There is a reason this particular unit is standard issue on U.S. Marine M40 S.W.S, FBI HRT rifles, and Accuracy International military rifles. With a blacked-out stainless steel construction and a spring-loaded handle that can be swiveled out of the way, it is the one to get as they are all closely priced.

    The pod lock works great. Just be sure you have a 1/4 inch socket to install it

    If you have a Harris Bipod, YOU NEED THIS THING

    Why Harris did not build their bipods with a device like this, I do not know! They could add it to production for much less money than it cost you and I to purchase one and put it on. They could sell for a little more and save you a little time! Nevertheless, anyone that has a Harris knows they are made to cant. They have a knurled nob that you are supposed to be able to use to increase tension and lessen the ability to cant so easy. Once the bipod is mounted to the rifle just getting to the knob is a problem not to mention, you can not turn the thing with the bare hand enough to really control the cant! The Pod Loc is the solution! It works 100% and cures your woes! It could not be easier to install. They say you need a 1/4 inch socket, but you do not! If you have (even a cheep) screwdriver that is made to accept different bits you will find, most likely, the female side of the screwdriver is, 1/4 inch. You just back out the nut as the directions show, being very careful to have your finger on the backside of the assembly so all won't fall out (and that is easy also), and your thread up to the Pod Loc. YOU ARE DONE! You can now get support with just your fingers that work! Also, once you have it set as you like it if the little handle is not in a place you wish or like, NO PROBLEM. You pull back on the handle which is spring loaded, and you can then move the handle to any position you want to without changing the tension. I do give this warning. DO NOT BUY ONE OF THE CHEEP KNOCK OFFS! They are plastic, and they break! So bite the bullet and get something that works and does not break. Highly recommended and shame on Harris for not making this a standard part!
