Monadnock® Introduces New Autolock® Patrol Kit

October 23, 2008
Jacksonville, FL

Monadnock®, part of BAE Systems Products Group, announced today the introduction of its AutoLock® Patrol Kit, incorporating three of its most popular baton products – the AutoLock baton, the Hindi Baton Cap™ and the AutoLock Front Draw® Holder – into one package, allowing law enforcement personnel to purchase a complete baton system at a low MSRP.

Monadnock is a leading manufacturer of high quality batons and accessories for the law enforcement community since 1958. With more than 40,000 certified Monadnock instructors worldwide that provide practical defense tactics to criminal justice professionals, Monadnock is committed to officer and public safety. Most Monadnock products carry a lifetime repair or replacement guarantee, and are subjected to rigorous quality control programs before they are released.

The AutoLock baton opens and closes at the push of a button and is designed with a revolutionary cam and ball bearing action, ensuring that the baton stays open while performing striking or jabbing techniques. Users also have the option of choosing either the Foam Grip or Super Grip®, providing a firm grasp during any situation.

To provide a high level of durability and baton retention, the AutoLock Front Draw Holder is made of durable polycarbonate and employs tension springs to hold the baton in place. The front draw holder swivels 360 degrees with a clip-on back, allowing the baton to be drawn quickly from any direction and re-holster while open or closed.

The Hindi Baton Cap, one of the latest advancements in baton technology, keeps the baton in hand while engaged and enhances performance. Incorporating a firm grip for improved control, the Hindi Baton Cap easily locates the baton while on the belt for even quicker drawing – boosting officer confidence. Additionally, the Power Safety Tip® provides larger, more effective striking force.

Monadnock’s AutoLock Patrol Kit is available with a plain or basketweave holder, with an MSRP starting at $149.95.
