The ATP low profile locking lever replaces the factory tilt/cant locking screw/knob on both Gen 1 and Gen 2 MDT CKYE Pod and CKYE Pod Lightweight Bipods.
The tilt/cant locking mechanism on the original Gen 1 MDT CKYEPOD (and CKYE Pod Lightweight) was tightened with an allen key. The Gen 2 is an improvement and uses a thumbnut, it is designed to use a bullet to get the added leverage and grip to tighten the thumbnut but this is not ideal, and makes it difficult to lock the bipod in position. Note: The CKYE Pod Lightweight model still uses the allen key locking mechanism.
A better solution is to replace the thumbnut with a ratcheting locking lever which provides the grip and leverage to secure the cant function using only one hand. Similar designs are used by military and law enforcement units worldwide. The locking lever is spring loaded and can be placed in any position after it has been tightened, just pull the lever towards you to disengage the ratchet mechanism, reset the position of the lever and let go.
