The Duckbill platform and docking concepts combine to form
the MaxCon technology which is a simple concept utilizing
the bonding strength of Velcro®. The Duckbill anchor
belt and the Duckbill patrol belt both utilize 360°
Velcro® coverage resulting in a cross-link between the
two ensuring that maximum contact is achieved and maintained
at all times.
a clamshell docking design.
Duckbill accessory modules also utilize Velcro® in
a unique "clamshell docking" design. This overlapping
principle securely attaches the modules to the belts. Repositioning
is simply done by "unfolding" the clamshell and
relocating the module. This design imparts the necessary
rigidity to the belt while the belt itself remains pliable.
The result is a more comfortable but stable duty belt platform
because the accessory modules now participate actively as
an additional stabilizing force on the duty belt.
The belts and modules, regardless of size, weight or quantity,
interlock completely and comfortably around the complete
circumference of the officer's waist allowing for ergonomic
flexibility regardless of body type, frame size or gender.
In addition, the complete 360° bond allows the weight
of the accessories to be evenly distributed around the
entire circumference of the officer unlike
the use of keepers, which carry the weight only at the point
of the keeper attachment. This technology ensures that
modules will never shift or slide, even when the duty belt
is removed.This technology also allows the user to fine-tune
the position of the modules for allocation of the module
and accessory weight that best suits the individual all
the time knowing that whatever position is chosen, the module
will never shift or creep or move on the belt.
