If so let me know how you use them. Pics if possible.
I use them on my Maxped Lunad to hang things on. However, I have recently discovered web dominator and am looking to buy some as a replacement. I guess you have to consider the use. Grimlocs will hold more weight and web dominators are better for lighter items and keeping your straps or a water bladder hose in place.
The next order I make is going to be for some web dominators!
Yes, do keep the bladder hose in place. :idiot2: :lolhammer:
I thought of that too, but my existing straps on my Maxpedition Falcon II takes care of the hydration hose very well, and well placed.
As I have thought about the uses for the Grimlocs, I realized that I can use them to hold my GPS in an area that I could see it, possibly not having to grab it, in order to insure i was along the right direction.
use them (2) to hang things on my Fatboy, one holds one side of my paracord grab handle
I have Grimlocs and web dominators on the way. Want to try both.
Haven't used Grimlocs....yet.
But I use several of the Web Dominators....for the usual uses, plus keyring holder,hang the Maratac AAA on,and to lash extra stuff to my vest.
And really like the removable Annex Clips,for rapidly attaching pouches to MOLLE,etc. And I carry a couple spares for strap repair/splices,for fairly lightweight stuff.
But I'll get Grimlocs,next order!
I use grimlocs a lot for holding gloves, hearing protection, hats, and other things I might be taking off / putting on over and over. The grimlocks open and lock easily (even one handed), and offer greater access than a carabiner.
I like that they attach separately from the main load bearing section. So when I remove something from one using just one hand, I can leave the grimloc open and know it won't fall off of my gear. I can leave it open to quickly re-attach whatever it was holding if needed
I usually have at least one on my pack somewhere in back and one on the shoulder strap (I also use them for the hydration hose)
I have one on my range bag and my travel bags (airport friendly)
I use grimlocs and web dominators on my just in rucks. One bad strap snag was enough to convince me to order several dozen dominators from Mil-Spec Monkey. I use a grimloc to hold down my Camelbak tube, but my other grimlocs are used as tear away d-rings to secure lanyarded (inot even a real word) earplugs, knives, lensatic compass, and odds and ends that I'd like to keep hung on my gear but might need to tear away in a hurry. I would not suggest using dominators for holding any weight though. Good stuff all around.
When I want to carry a 3L CamelBak and my Kifaru E&E at the same time, I use 4 Grimlocs to connect them. I slot the Grimlocs onto the E&E and then hook them through D rings on the CamelBak.
I also use one to secure the hydration hose to the shoulder strap.
I mostly use web dominators for strap management.
strap management? securing hydration hose? i didn't realize these were an option! a lightbulb just went off over my head. so many ideas, so many concepts! so many accessories i can now purchase!!!!!!! :roof:
question about grimlocks - I've been hesitant to buy them since i'd be worried all the time of my gear getting snagged on something and falling off without me noticing, any chance of this happening or am i just paranoid?
Maxped site says they break away at 80lbs. That's quite a bit. I think you'd notice it.
ok, and then i guess part 2 of the question would be: Are there situations in which you don't want something to give way with 80 lbs? ie someone grabbing something off your bag and running? Or is that just the tradeoff of not worrying about snags?
they are neat. probably more value in a pack of 4 than most MaxP accessories....
you can put stuff on your packs without having to put them "in" the packs...granted, mostly it's a ballcap for me, or I'll clip my keys into one...but mine don't seem like they'd break apart accidently. (and no one's gonna grab my sweaty old ballcap anyway. )
I have 2 of them that hang on either side of my Tactical Gear Medium Modular Style Assault Pack. I hang things like gloves, my work hat (baseball style), Keys. Pics later, I am at work.
I haven't tried them yet, but I have 2 (or is it 4?) coming throught the mail. I don't have anything to attatch them to, but the CountyComm EOD bag is coming trough the mail in the same order.
I hang my keys, a whistle and a Glo-Toob from mine - on various packs. I have also rigged a couple of them up on some webbing over my sunvisors in my truck. They are quite handy little things. I have never had one open unintended before.
Yeah, I have a couple attached to my EDC Fatboy, but I'm not sure why...
...except I sometimes pick it up by them. :shrug:
