The ITW Nexus QASM (Quick Attach Surface Mount) is a game changing piece of hardware. These modular buckles are designed for use on PALS webbing and stay flat when attached. Slotted on both ends to accept 1″ webbing, they connect securely and are easily detached or re-positioned.
Now users can take advantage of the versatile QASM buckle to facilitate vertical attachment of any PALS (MOLLE) equipped armor system with any compatible (contingent on buckle orientation and size) chest rig or similar load carriage system without having to rely on proprietary armor with a matching rig.
Down Range Gear’s QASM Vertical Connector combines an ITW Nexus QASM buckle with a layered piece of 1″webbing with loops sewn at both ends, matching the length of the buckle.
The QASM can be slotted into one end creating a hinged “gate” which can then be positioned onto a column of PALS webbing. Once in place, the open end is slotted into the bottom, securely closing the “gate.”
