Elastic Weapon Catch

The Northeast Tactical Elastic Weapon Catch is designed to give an added measure of security when you need to sling your long arm and go hands free. Which ever sling worn, uncontrolled weapon swing can be an issue. Mechanical breaching, climbing and prisoner control can easily place your weapon in a compromised position or create unwanted liability (bouncing a muzzle off a prone suspect). Our Weapon Catch adds an extra measure of security by controlling the front end of the weapon.

We manufacture three versions of our Elastic Weapon Catch.

Our most popular is our MOLLE Loop and Ball Elastic Weapon Catch. It is designed to attach to a small area of vertical MOLLE. The elastic loop and ball is easily secured around the front portion of a long arm to help secure it while going hands free.  Helps stabilize the weapon for searching, handcuffing, breaching, climbing, and other time when muzzle swing is unwanted. We have two options for this catch, one is covered with nylon piece over the elastic section until you need it, and one without.

One version attaches to body armor or load bearing equipment with MOLLE strapping by weaving through the webbing and secured with a snap.MOLLE EWC We offer two sizes for this attachment, 18 inch and 26 inch unextended,depending on how much equipment and pouches you have mounted on your gear. Also, the smaller size can be used for breacher shotgun or smaller firearms if hung over the strong shoulder and the Catch is mounted on that side. MOLLE version can be ordered in black, olive drab or tan tubular webbing over elastic.

EWRS1MOLLE version should be on the support side for standard long arms. The strap can hang under the vest or around mounted pouches. It can be mounted to any MOLLE webbing, only needing two vertical sections to mount.

The Strap should hang so that it can easily be found with support hand or thumb.

The Elastic can be extended with support thumb, muzzle will fit through, even with accessories mounted.


The Elastic Strap will hold the with limited swing. Litter carry,breaching, cuffing and searching, and other hands free work will be assisted when the rifle does not slide around as much. Elastic Weapon Catch is not a substitute for proper weapon retention and training, this device is designed to prevent unwanted weapon movement when going hands free.

The small length can be used on strong side for smaller weapons, like breacher shotguns or PDW. The weapon can be secured on side or front.
