AB NightVision Inc is now producing a vertical slide adapter for the standard Rhino helmet mount. So many of the mounts in use today have no vertical adjustment, and the user is left to shift the helmet to a suitable position. This can expose too much of the forehead without the protection of the helmet, or can just simply be uncomfortable. The Vertical Slide Adapter allows users to upgrade their existing helmet mounts for a fraction of the cost of buying a new mount.
The Vertical Slide Adapter only adds 32 grams (1.1 oz) of weight to the helmet mount, but allows for 1.3 inches of vertical adjustment. It is very slim, at only 3/8 of an inch, so it won’t push the unit too far out from your face. The unit is CNC machined from aircraft grade aluminum and hard anodized for excellent corrosion resistance. Latching springs and mounting screws are stainless steel.
Installation of the Vertical Slide Adapter is very simple. Unscrew the mounting baseplate from your rhino
mount and screw the adapter on in its place. Then use the two included screws to attach your baseplate to the adapter.
The Vertical Adjustment Adapter has strong latching teeth to lock solidly into place and maintain its integrity through drops and abuse. The release latch for the slide is located on the opposite side of the unit from the baseplate release. This helps ensure that the user does not release the mount from the helmet when they are trying to make a height adjustment.
