Seen by the outdoor industry for the first time at the 2011 Archery Trade Show, and after much anticipation, the LockDown is now shipping. The LockDown optics deployment system offers low-profile lens protection for storage while simultaneously providing a secure tethering system for binoculars while in use.
Binoculars are secured safely to the hunter’s chest with Anti-Bounce Technology. Anti-Bounce Technology eliminates the movement or bounce associated with traditional harness designs. Hunters can crawl, climb a treestand and even run without the fear of their binoculars moving around or making unnecessary noise.
Glassing is made easy with the LockDown’s ShockCord security straps. The ShockCords’ unique 50-50 preload design provides secure optics placement in the moldable hood during storage while still allowing for one handed, completely tension free glassing during use.
“In the last several years, there have been no real advancement in the way hunters secure their binoculars,” stated Jerid Strasheim, VP of Sales & Marketing for S4Gear, “The LockDown solves all the problems the modern hunter faces while using their optics in the field.”
For lens and body protection while not in use, the LockDown features a Moldable security cover. The sleek, low profile laminated design features scratch resistant materials inside, an aluminum core for memory and a durable noise-resistant fabric for the exterior.
The breathable, streamlined straps are designed to fit comfortably under backpacks and treestand harnesses.
Multiple adjustments allow for personalized sizing and comfort. Whether it’s waist size, optics size, optic-cover position, optics tension or harness positioning the LockDown will accommodate a wide variety of users. The yolk-style harness design makes the LockDown easy to put on and take off.
The patent pending LockDown is available in a grey/black combo or black/Realtree AP combo and has two sizes to accommodate optics ranging in height from 4” to 7.5”. Realtree AP LockDowns will be available early June. For more information, or to place an order visit www.S4Gear.com.

I own this system and it is fantastic the simplicity of how it works. Now I don’t have to worry about my binoculars bouncing all over while I am walking.
