The LIFT Ladder continues the innovation that is the LIFT System. The LIFT Ladder deploys in seconds over the Combat Carbon Poles to create a 7.5 ft fully rigid ladder with a 400 pound carrying capacity for both scaling and bridging operations. Total system weight is 4.975 pounds and the attachment can be removed very easily to use the poles for any other parts of the LIFT System. The ladder attachment folds up compactly and can be stored in its own carrying case when not in use. (Carrying Case Sold Separately)
Technical Specifications: Material - Carbon Fiber / Spectra Cord Total Weight: 4.975 Pounds Weight without poles: 2.375 Pounds Dimensions folded up (without poles): 3" x 3" x 12"
The first patented retractable lanyard riggers belt has just been released by MATBOCK. It incorporates a 4000 lbs Kevlar lanyard with Dyneema stitching at the load point into your normal riggers belt. The operator can simply pull on the 2 stage carabiner to extend the lanyard and hook in to the helicopter or hoist system. After detaching, the lanyard automatically retracts back into the belt. Instead of having to stuff the lanyard into a pocket or have a loop near his/her hip as a snag hazard, the operator's lanyard is tucked away until needed again. Furthermore, the Kevlar lanyard is spliced at both ends and the Dyneema stitching at the hot point prevents decay from salt water, possibly compromising the safety of the operator during an emergency situation. This initial version has a fixed length 20-inch lanyard to be at arms length for most soldiers.

The LIFT Coupler is an 8 inch long carbon fiber tube that securely connects two (or more) Combat Carbon Poles together. The LIFT Coupler holds the poles together with hand tightened friction seals that are easy to operate, small, and secure. With two poles connected by the coupler, operators will have the ability to reach 15 ft. This is ideal elevating urban climbing hooks up to the rooftops to allow recce or roof teams the ability to gain the tactical advantage.
The BLS is a joint project between MATBOCK and MAS Special Ops Training. It's a patent pending Bench, Ladder, Stretcher designed for Wing and Zodiac inflatable boats. The BLS is sold as a pair (bottom and upper sections) and designed to deploy as a unit. For the inflatables, it sits across the side tubes and can be secured to the floor with either ratchet straps or line (not included in the kit), giving space for 4 operators to sit forward facing during transit. When reaching the landing site or ship to be boarded, the sections can be attached together to create a 12 foot ladder with integrated shepherds hooks and offset ladder rungs. Additionally, the ladder rungs are coated on the top surface with nonslip to help prevent falls due to wet surfaces. If there is a casualty, a single section can be used as a stretcher to evacuate the individual as well. Four handles protrude from the sides to aid in transport as well as for positioning the ladder.
Each section is 69” tall, 17.5” wide, weighs 20.5 lbs and made of aluminum with welded connections throughout the system. Additionally, the BLS comes with grip feet on the lower section to help prevent the bottom from kicking out while being used as a ladder.
