The Bundeswehr ALICE adapter is a small piece of canvas fabric with four metallic grommets. The grommets are designed so that they may be slipped over the studs found on the clips of German-made modular equipment. What good does that do? The canvas also sports two ALICE clips that make attaching this adapter to any piece of the ALICE system very quick and very simple.
I was skeptical at first but these work great. Thank you.
Once you are able to get the clip on correctly, it works fine and I have had no problem with it.
Good Idea, Bad Craftsmanship Review by Jedediah the GyroCaptain
You're doing it wrong. The plastic clips are meant to go into the holes; you insert the longer ones first by inserting at a 45 degree angle, then you lower the other end and fasten. At least, that's how it worked when I was overseas for 6 years.
We learned something very important; never with force.. If you have to force something with your firearm or equipment, chances are you're doing it wrong.
i have a lot of German equipment and I've never had a problem with these adapters.
I had no problems with it worked just fine.
I ordered one for my P-38 holster. It took a little effort to clip on, but it worked pretty well. Just remember to orient it correctly, so it doesn't flop around. The grommets did show signs of deformation after a few months of installation, probably the only issue I would have with it.
Worked well for me. No more difficult to put on than any of the other adapters that came with previous purchases. It takes a little effort to manipulate the pegs into the adapter, but they seem well made and solid.
I received this yesterday, mounted it on a Flectar holster for a P1. Unlike the other reviewer, I had no problem mounting it with a little care. The adapter is plenty well-made for its intended use, seems fairly rugged in fact. There is no need to force the plastic pegs on bundeswehr equipment through the grommets. Just manipulate the pegs through, it is intuitive, take your time.
I had been looking for these adapters for quite some time, as everyone that offered them were out of stock. I bought 3 from Keepshooting, and they were all trash. The grommets on the adapter are too small to fit the pegs on Bundeswehr equipment. The pressure of trying to push the pegs in (by hand) resulted in the grommets tearing out of the nylon. I bought 3 adapters, and had the grommets rip out of two of them; I gave up and threw them all away...I love Keepshooting, and this is my third order from them--its just that this is a bad piece of equipment.
