The second mode allows the Universal NVG Mount to securely lock the mount to the base.
These Mounts are proudly Made in the USA!
The Wilcox NVG Mounting Systems Product Line is featured with a wide range of adjustments to customize the position of the Night Vision Goggle for proper eye position and relief.
L2 G08 and G10 Ratchet Strap Bracket Components (See Above):
1) The Ratchet Strap is secured to the MICH Helmet by a Front Hook and Rear Hook Ratchet Cinch Mechanism.
2)A unique Vertical Height Adjustment Button easily facilitates positioning NVG height up or down with a simple push of the button. No longer is it necessary to manually rotate a thumb screw to perform this function.
3)The Breakaway Switch allows the operator to easily set which mode (breakaway or locked) is desirable, depending upon operating conditions.
L2 Series NVG Interface Mount Components (See Above):
4)An ergonomically placed Flip Button allows the Mount to “flip up” to a very low profile when stowed. This pivot mechanism is simple and robust by design and will not loosen over time.

6)Two coinciding Fore/Aft Travel Release Buttons provide Fore/Aft NVG travel.
7)An ergonomically placed NVG Release Button allows for one handed release of the NVG.
8) A Magnet Switch is featured to facilitate the “Automatic Function” of the NVG.
9) A Mounting interface allows the universal NVG Mount for the AN/PVS-7B/D to easily accept the mounting horn of the AN/PVS-7B/D.
10)A breakaway interface allows the universal NVG Mount for the AN/PVS-7B/D to easily integrate with the L2 line of Helmet Mounting Systems.
