We were the very first company to put a clamping tripod shooting rest on the market, all the way back in 2008. We called it the C.L.A.W., an acronym for Clamp, Lock, Aim, and Whack. Themotivation of the product came from one too many lost opportunities at good animals because we weren't able to find a decent way to get prone on the steep hillsides we'd find ourselves glassing on. We were tired of missed shooting opportunities while trying to find a position to shoot from. And then one day, it hit us, we realized the solution to the problem was right in front of us.
For years, western hunters had been carrying tripods into the woods to glass game. Most western game required high powered optics mounted to sturdy camera tripods to glass for long periods of time with stability. So, the solution was one system built around the tripod that did everything and did everything better than what was available at the time to shoot from.
We quickly went to work designing the saddle, and the first C.L.A.W. models were made from machined aluminum, which competitors have seen and tried to follow on the market ever since. But machining is expensive, and the saddles were heavy. Thus, we went to work to provide the best saddle to the world shooters/hunters and continue to be the pioneers. We quickly started experimenting with high tech,molded resins in 2009, and settled on an extremely tough, extremely light glass reinforced resin that reduced both manufacturing costs and the weight you're carrying in the field.
We designed our utility patent to be able to provide the world shooters and hunters with various models that will always suit their needs and desires. Triclawps Solo is a single knob model made for shooters who prefer not to leave the saddle attached to their weapons. Again, using glass reinforced resins and high-pitch threads that make securing the saddle fast, and carrying the saddle easy in the field. We appreciate everyone's support in our pioneering efforts to continually provide the very best tripod shooting saddles on the market!
