MARCO Marking System
This system was originally designed to identify cleared rooms inside a building. Instead of carrying a handful of loose chemlights, the MARCO enabled quick access to dozens of smaller marking lights. The system has many non-combat applications, such as marking a trail or tracking downed game animals. The MARCO’s tough polycarbonate dispenser features a spring-loaded follower that feeds 30 2-inch sticks to the top one at a time. These sticks can be activated onehanded by bending them upward with your forefinger as they’re dispensed. Various optional storage pouches are available. Made in the USA.
Easy to activate and deploy several light sticks with one hand Ideal for identifying multiple items or individuals
Color options increase versatility
No built-in way to attach the sticks to gear, although we found sandwiching one behind the edge of a Velcro patch works well.
You’ll need to use all 30 lights in a short time frame, since the active chemicals begin degrading as soon as the dispenser is unwrapped.
Each dispenser is designed as a singleuse item.
