In conjunction with the U.S. Navy, Gentex developed this modification for the standard lightweight bayonet receivers to reduce the potential for snags from parachute risers or shroud lines during aircraft ejection or manual bailout. This upgrade kit provides a replacement-tapered baseplate for the receiver, which smoothes the contours around the receiver, greatly reducing the threat of snagging on the helmet. The installation kit is lightweight, simple, and cost effective; works with both Gentex MBU-12/P and MBU-20/P-series oxygen masks; and does not require any additional holes to be drilled in the helmet. Fully approved by U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force, it provides that extra margin of safety during emergencies.
