Similar to the Harris-designed bipods, The TacPod is spring loaded for deployment and locking. While there is no positive locking mechanism to keep the legs deployed, the springs seem to have enough tension to keep them from closing while the bipod is moved around. With the bipod attached, the bottom of the rifle is 8¼ inches from the ground at the lowest setting and 13½ inches at the fully opened position. Fully extended, it has a width of slightly more than 14 inches and is still very stable. The knob to tighten the bipod to a sling swivel stud is large and easy to tighten. It comes with a Picatinny attachment that will require a hex wrench to attach. The legs have a spring assist for deployment after the tension grip is pressed. Closing the legs requires pressing the tension adjustment and manually returning the legs. This bipod doesn’t traverse or cant, but at the $45 price point, it’s a solid support and built pretty durably.
