TangoDown’s vertical foregrips are already the choice of real-world professionals because of their ergonomic design, waterproof internal compartment and patented switch pockets for Insight and SureFire pressure switches, but now TangoDown’s battle-tested grips will be available with a self-locking, quick-detach attachment, featuring a Lock-Lever™ mount, making the grips fast to mount onto a Mil-Std 1913 accessory rail.

The Lock-Lever™ mount is a throw-lever style mount in which a lever pivots side-to-side to securely lock the mount’s clamp bar onto an M1913 rail. However, unlike other brands of lever mounts, the Lock-Lever™ requires no tools to adjust and locks itself automatically when pressed shut

“TangoDown’s vertical foregrip has proven to be a rugged piece of gear with its dual locking bars, but some customers wanted a quick-detach mechanism that doesn’t have to be slid down the rail, requiring the removal of other accessories. Our new Lock-Lever™ mount is fast and secure, yet just as strong and reliable as our classic foregrip,” said company founder and president Jeff Cahill.

The Lock-Lever™ mount, made by American Defense Mfg. to TangoDown’s specifications, is CNC machined from aerospace-grade aluminum and features a stainless steel cross pin nut and spring-tensioned clamp bar. The clamp bar is quickly and easily adjusted for the correct tension on the rail by simply pressing on the Lock-Lever™ itself to expose a nut that is turned by mere finger pressure to adjust. No tools whatsoever are needed and adjustments take only seconds, yet are rock-solid.

TangoDown’s Lock-Lever™ mount is available on both the full-size vertical foregrip and the “shorty” version, made for maximum compactness. The grips retain TangoDown’s patented recessed pockets for either Insight or SureFire pressure switches and are available in flat dark earth, foliage green or flat black. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $85.

TangoDown products feature superior engineering, uncompromising quality and are produced entirely in the United States. TangoDown products have been assigned multiple U.S. and NATO NSNs and are also included in the SOPMOD II kit for U.S. Special Forces.
