Body: 

This offer is only effective August 12 through September 20, 2002.

KMDSI is offering the 505-010 "Pull Pin" Latch Catch (standard since 1993) at a special discounted price of US retail $150.00 (normally retail $205.00) in exchange for the return of 505-015 old style "Push Pin" latch catches, accompanied by the serial numbers of the Helmets these units are off of.

All SuperLite®-17A/B & U.S. Navy MK-21 Mod. 0 & Mod. I Helmets sold by KMDSI have the "Pull Pin Latch Catch Assembly", Part Number 505 -010 (brass) or 505-011 (chrome)on the helmet to lock the Yoke in position. The mounting system for the Pull Pin Latch Catch Assembly is identical to the old style Push Pin Latch Catch Assembly , # 505-015 which is now obsolete.

Each Pull Pin Latch Catch Assembly is shipped with a Safety Pin, Part Number 535-900 which we recommend be used when the user requires a two step release system on the helmet. It can be used with or without a cord attached to prevent loss of the Safety Pin when not in use. All Pull Pin Latch Catch Assemblies which are sold as spare or replacement parts include this Safety Pin, P/N 535-900.
