The 2’ extension was designed for your operations when more length is needed when deploying the BP series flashbang poles. The 2EXT has an overall length of 24” and a weight of 2.7 lbs. The 2EXT is a very heavy duty extension which will perform over and over again when porting heavy glass. The 2EXT compliments the BP series poles by allowing the operator to place either a NFDD or a Non-Burning gas canister into the highest point of an opening thus increasing the performance of the NFDD.
5EXT - SECOND STORY EXTENSION W/12" STAND OFF LEG
The 5’ extension is designed for second story deployment of NFDD’s. This extension is mated with the BP series poles which allow your port team operator the ability to place a NFDD near an opening at a height of 15’ to 17’. The 5EXT-SE has a 12” stand off leg which allows the operator the ability to rest the tool near an opening until deployment of the NFDD is needed. The 5EXT-SE has a total length of 60” and a weighs 5lbs. The extension is built on the same platform as the BP series poles and is easily detachable allowing flexibility in your operations.
SIDEWINDER - 90 DEGREE EXTENSION
The Sidewinder - 90 degree extension is compatible with all the BP- Series flashbang poles. The most effective way to prevent a NFDD contact injury is to prevent the device from coming in contact with people. The Sidewinder™ extension allows the operator to insert a NFDD into an opening and directly control the placement of the device at the moment of deflagration.
The Sidewinder™ was designed to be used with a “breach and hold” technique where an operator may want to deploy a NFDD at a location and hold/secure the opening.
J&N Tactical received information from operators out in the field that they were laying our bang poles in the door way and running around them as the NFDD was deployed. We were concerned about potential issues with operators tripping or catching their boots on the sharp teeth located on the clamp heads as the pole lay in the doorway. The Sidewinder™ is coupled with a clamp head assembly which has no spikes or sharp teeth.
During the breach, an operator is able to stand back until the opening is clear. The operator inserts the Sidewinder™ into the doorway on either side (unit is ambidextrous), pulls the trigger/pull ring pin, deflagration occurs and operator pulls the Sidewinder™ towards the door frame clearing the tool from the opening.
Note: Space near the door and/or landing is an important consideration when deploying a NFDD with the sidewinder extension. The Sidewinder™ also allows the operator the ability to push the door open and use it as a solid door stop to keep an opening for observation after the NFDD deflagrates.
The sidewinder was NOT designed to deploy a NFDD through a window at a right angle.
The new Sidewinder comes with its own clamp head, which has no hood (sharp teeth) covering the NFDD.
The two stand off legs allow the operator to place it inside the door and rest the extension on the leg, thus keeping the NFDD approximately 4" off the floor. When the NFDD is secured in the clamp head, the ports on the NFDD are in the vertical position during deflagration.
