  • Patent number: 11297409
    Abstract: A remote speaker microphone (RSM) unit enables a user to use either a headset or an in-ear speaker with the RSM unit. The RSM unit includes a first RSM connection for communicating and connectable with the first connection of the headset; and a second RSM connection for communicating and connectable with the second connection of the in-ear speaker. Connecting either the headset or the in-ear speaker to the RSM unit disables the speaker and microphone of the RSM unit. At least one of the first and second connections are wireless, e.g., Bluetooth or NFC, and at least one of the first and second RSM connections are wireless connections communicable with the first and second connections, respectively. In addition or the alternative, at least one of said first connection and said second connection are electrical plugs and at least one of said first and second RSM connections are corresponding electrical jacks.

  • Patent number: 11105584
    Abstract: A holster for a handgun having a trigger guard includes a holster body defining a chamber for receiving a portion of the handgun. The holster body has an entranceway enabling insertion of the gun into the holster and removal of the handgun from the holster chamber. The holster includes a blocking device separate from the holster body that helps to block movement of the handgun trigger guard relative to the holster body when the handgun is in the chamber. The blocking device is supported on the holster body for movement relative to the holster body between an open position and a blocking position. The blocking device has a tail portion that projects from the bottom wall in a direction away from the top wall when the blocking member is in the open position. The blocking device moves from the open position to the blocking position in response to insertion of a handgun through the entranceway into the chamber.

  • Patent number: 11054216
    Abstract: A two piece holster support for supporting a handgun holster on a belt includes a first piece that is configured to clamp onto the belt at a clamp location when the belt is threaded through the first piece in a belt direction and pulled tight, thereby to support the first piece on the belt. A second piece is supported on the first piece for sliding movement relative to the first piece in the belt direction between a plurality of positions at varying distances from the clamp location. The second piece has a loop configuration defining a belt passage for engaging the belt at a location spaced apart form the base and thereby supporting the second piece on the belt. The second piece is movable on the first piece in the belt direction whereby the belt passage on the movable piece can be set at a variable distance from the clamp location of the base.

  • Patent number: 10883795
    Abstract: A holster support assembly for use by a user wearing a belt is adjustable for both drop and cant. The assembly includes a belt support that engages and is supported by the user's belt, the belt support defining a plurality of drop positions spaced apart along the track to enable the user to set the drop position of the holster. The assembly also includes a holster mount supported on the belt support for sliding movement relative to the belt support, the holster mount configured for supporting a holster. The holster mount has a first condition in which the holster mount is engaged with the belt support thereby blocking rotation of the holster mount relative to the belt support, and is selectively movable into a second condition in which the holster mount is rotatable relative to the belt support about an axis to enable the user to set the cant position of the holster relative to the belt support.

  • Patent number: 10522131
    Abstract: A hearing protection headset that can be worn by a user includes left and right earcups. The headset includes a radio communication system enabling at least one radio signal to be received and played through one or both of the earcups. Noise control circuitry in the headset is configurable by a user between at least three active modes of operation—the circuitry having a first active mode in which the headset provides automatic noise reduction, a second active mode in which the headset provides automatic noise cancellation, and a third active mode in which the headset provides both automatic noise reduction and automatic noise cancellation. A switch is manually operable by the user to configure the circuitry between the first active mode and the second active mode and the third active mode.

  • Patent number: 10491999
    Abstract: A headset controller for controlling two incoming radio signals for a headset that includes a left earcup and a right earcup. The controller includes a first radio signal input connection configured for receiving a first radio signal from a first radio, and a second radio signal input connection configured for receiving a second radio signal from a second radio different from the first radio. The controller also includes an electrical sensing and switching mechanism that is operative, when both channels have incoming signals, to send each signal separately to a respective earcup. The electrical sensing and switching mechanism is operative, when only one of the two channels has an incoming signal, to send that one signal to both earcups.
