Pack to PC Attachment • Modular • Adaptive • Quick Release

In rosponse to user requests for a universal, quick detach/reattach pack to plate carrier solution, the UPC4 Plate Carrier Adapter System is now available for any MOLLE/PALS equipped pack or armor plate carrier.

September 24, 2019 (Birmingham, AL) — Emergent Rescue Systems, LLC today announced the release of its newest innovation, the UPC4 Plate Carrier Adapter System. The UPC4 was developed initially for HRE Pack attachment to the most common industry PCs. The end result, however, is a modular system which adapts to any MOLLE/PALS equipped surface. Additionally, its adjustable quick release points allow fast detachment and simple reattachment.

Vertical Adapter Locks convert horizontal to vertical PALS rows with a dual row adapter lock that remains in place under heavy load tension. VALs are designed as an adapter and stabilizer, eliminating QASM adapter twisting from single PALS row attachment.

When we started getting inquiries about HRE Pack attachment, we produced a simple prototype for what seemed to be a simple problem, said Emergent Rescue Systems founder, Chris Richards. After several changes from user evaluations, we realized the extent of the universal PC attachment capability gap. The resulting UPC4 is unique, adaptive, and modular…8-9 design revisions later.
