Zico is now offering the first ever electric hands-free SCBA bracket.
The bracket is electronically controlled (12v switches) eliminating the need for a pull release. Donning the SCBA is fast and easy. The firefighter simply slips into the harness, and waits for the bracket to be disengaged. Once disengaged, simply stand up. No tugging needed. The bracket can be controlled by the parking brake, toggle switch, or any other 12v switched source. An adjustable footplate is included for on the fly variations in cylinder length adjustments.
