For your sake
and your loved ones, start maintaining your body armor in a proper manner even if you do not purchase this device.
above photo shows the method now used by most Officers to dry and maintain their Body Armor (a wire clothes hanger with the
ends bent upward). It is then hung on the outside of the locker door or inside of the locker. Many Officers just toss them
inside the locker with no support at all. All of these improper methods can void your Manufacturer's
warranty on your Body Armor.
SUPPORT – Our "Flak Vest
Hanger"TM allows your Body Armor to be hung when space doesn’t permit it to be
laying flat. It promotes the wear ability and longevity of your carrier and ballistic panels. In short, no longer will your
elastic straps stretch beyond their memory point. No longer will the ballistic panels bunch and create folds or creases that
don’t come out and rub against your body from improper drying methods. Now you can protect the Body Armor which helps
FIT AND COMFORT – Police officers
aren’t dying because of bad Body Armor. They’re dying because they don’t wear it. So first and foremost,
your vest must be comfortable and dry!
IMPROPER FIT - folds/creases in
the ballistic panels are one of the main reasons that officers stop wearing their Body Armor.
IMPROPER CARE - is another reason that officers stop wearing their Body Armor which causes them to
purchase additional carriers or go on the street unprotected.
CARING FOR THE
HANGER – The only care that is required to maintain the "Flak Vest Hanger"TM
for daily use is to not abuse it or use it for purposes other than its designed purpose.
CLEANING - Remove the Body Armor from the "Flak Vest Hanger"TM
Using a damp cloth with mild soap, wipe the entire hanger on both sides and all its parts. You may also place
the hanger under running water and wash with mild soap. Dry the entire hanger with a dry cloth or allow it to air dry before
placing your body armor back on the hanger. "DO NOT USE BLEACH OR PRODUCTS CONTAINING BLEACH"
as they can affect the ballistic material of your Body Armor.
RESISTANT – one of the last things that anyone wants is for their Body Armor to absorb sweat and odors. This
product resists penetration and contamination from body oils and salt’s etc, so unpleasant odor’s will not soak
into the hanger itself and then transfer the accumulated dampness or odors into the ballistic panels or carrier. This product
is fully adjustable to all sizes of Soft Body Armor. It allows any user to properly hang and store the Body Armor as it dries
all while keeping its shape for a more comfortable fit.
