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: MOLLE, Waist Wrap, and and our new MOLLE Loop and Ball.


Our MOLLE Loop and Ball Weapon catch attaches to MOLLE gear by using a small vertical area so it can be attached between pouches or even on the outside of attached pouches.

Loop and Ball EWCTo attach the weapon, place it over the webbing section. EWC Loop and Ball 1Place your support hand thumb through the elastic loop and stretch over the handguard.Loop and Ball Thumb loop

To release, pull the elastic loop over the ball with support hand fingers.

Available in Olive Drab, black coming soon.


We have two versions of this Weapon Catch. One has a hook and loop flap that covers the elastic sections. This helps limit accidental catching of the elastic sections. The other version does not have this cover. Depending on placement and expected use will determine which Weapon Catch to order. If the catch will be mounted so that an arm or other gear will help cover the catch, or if a secondary weapon (such as a breacher shotgun or less lethal weapon) will be used and there is limited possibility of accidental catching, then the cover will have limited use.  If the Weapon Catch will be used for primary weapon when needed or exposed outside gear, then the covered Catch may be a better alternative.
