Default $12 Pod-Lock

I stumbled across this on SH. I just ordered mine which includes shipping. I ordered the stainless steel model!

Going through T-NUTS.COM was as easy as ordering at any site on the web!

I don't have any affiliation or thing to gain from any website or company.

I'll make it really easy and cheap for you guys. Just order the pod-lock with the 10/32 threads (the most expensive one is like $5.90 )and a spacer for an extra $0.80

Is there really any difference between using a "Pod-Lock" and torquing down the hex screw on the bipod to stiffen it up? I suppose you could readily loosen it when you want.. but is there really any need? I've seen the units but haven't played around with one.

You can readjust on the fly as well as getting it a lot tighter. It was nice having it at the match because it made it easy to level my cross hairs. To bad I knocked my zero off by messing with the knobs.

Not the cheapest place, but everything seems to be good quality.

Just tightened my bipod up. For all those that want to do it without buying additional hardware, you just need a 1/4" nutdriver and a firm grip

What size are the spacers being used? 3/16" seem a bit to slim as shown on the instructions.

Comparing the pod-loc to the t-nuts, the pod-loc has a much beefier spacer but not worth the price diff if you as me. I own 2 pod-locs.

Randy turned me on to those several years ago, I have had mine installed since then. I also have a spare for when I get my next bipod which I hope to do before mid-january.
