For the times when you need your weapon and other combat equipment off seconds ago, the Rapid Emergency Detachment™ (RED) Swivel offers combat professionals the option to replace standard push button sling swivels with a pull-knob emergency release swivel.
The patent pending RED™ Swivel releases with a 7lb pull straight out from the socket. The chance for accidental release is minimized by the knob shape and the fact that a pull more than 10-15 degrees off axis will not release the connection. If you work with a rifle over or near water or in other conditions where sling entrapment is a substantial risk, the RED Swivel can prove invaluable. The RED swivel can be paired with the Burnsed Socket™ or a Universal Wire Loop™- with push button (available separately) to make the fastest 2 to 1 point sling.
RED Swivel Care
Like all push button sling attachments, they should be oiled periodically to maintain smooth operation. Make it a habit to oil them every time you clean and lube your rifle.
As with all Blue Force Gear, it is made with excellence in the USA and carries a limited lifetime warranty.

The R.E.D.swivel is killer! This swivel makes from 2 to 1 point fumble free and takes quick release to a new level. It never popped out of a socket once secured and is great idea for cold,numb fingers in the winter weather or if you're wearing thick gloves.
I have this thing linked up w/ a coyote UWL on the SCAR. The R.E.D. Swivel & UWL are very innovative in their own right but combine the two and the versatility is amazing.
I can't wait to see what's next from you guys. Keep up the good work
