The Atlas Bipod is the best competition bipod on the market today. It’s lightweight design and infinitely adjustable legs make it the go-to support for precision rifle shooters. However there is one drawback for competitive shooters: the dreaded tension knob.
The Atlas tension knob was designed to adjust with your fingers to allow a smooth pan and tilt, and it works... for the first few shots, then it tends to loosen up. Victor co. has come up with the solution... the Atlas Tension Wrench.
The ATW allows you to put the exact amount of friction you want on your tension knob and it won’t come loose. Guaranteed.
Comes in 3 versions to fit whatever generation Atlas you have. Please check the picture to make sure that the knob matches your bipod.
How tight is too tight?
The Atlas bipod is one of the toughest pieces of gear on the market, but it's not unbreakable. The Atlas wasn't designed to have a large wrench crank down on the tension screw with great force. Yes you can break your Atlas if pushed too far. This is why we insist on only tightening with three fingers, smoothly turning until snug. Please don't force it, it's unnecessary.
The ATLAS Bipod was the first bipod to offer a smooth pan, tilt and cant in a compact, lightweight design. It's tension knob is the key to the unique funtionality. Unfortunately with fingers alone, it's not possible to get the tension you need to hold the rifles position shot after shot.
The ATW is the solution. It gives you the extra leverage to get the bipod head snug without damaging the main screw.
YOU WON'T BELIEVE HOW WELL IT WORKS!
Slip the ATW over the tension knob and with three fingers, turn the tension knob counter-clockwise to loosen then smoothly turn it clockwise to tighten. Make your movements even and slow, no need to yank or force the knob. Do not over tighten.
