Pod Lock

I have seen a lot of reference to the pod locks for Harris Bipods. Where can I get one?

Thanks guys,

Well, I just gotta say my feeling are really badly hurt after all the trouble I went to invent a better replacement for one and here you want to go and buy one.

Here is my version of Buffalobob's idea. Seems to work real well. It is very simple to make if you can find a heavy wall tube with the right inside diameter. Just cut off a piece and drill and tap a 1/4-20 hole through the side.

It is easily adjustable, also.

You need to rush down to the U.S. Patent Office before someone steals your idea and begins selling them.

Problem is you couldn't make enough money selling them to cover the cost of patent. Too simple, cheap and easy to make yourself. Besides, I just expanded on your idea and therefore would have to split the proceeds

Thanks Bob....I made an extra if you'd like to have one. Just PM your address.
