- The Trigger Pouch has two patents in the USA (US 8523030 US 8651347) and around the globe.
- The Trigger Pouch was under development for 3 years with the full co-operation of the Israeli special ops unit YAMMAM.
- The Trigger Pouch provides safe and quick action for all types of grenades for the operative in the field (carrying and deploying).
- The Trigger Pouch provides the operative with a significant advantage in comparison to a traditional pouch, allowing the operative to deploy and through the grenade in a quick and safe manner when required.
- Fragmentation grenades often have different locking systems, which take precious seconds to remove.
- When in battle, there is little or no time to extract a fragmentation grenade, let alone to release all the locks. Soldiers have on occasion thrown grenades that they have deployed, without removing all the safety locks.
- The Pouch has several safety mechanisms some of which are parallel to the safety systems that are on the fragmentation grenades.

The Trigger Pouch provides many advantages in comparison to a tradition pouch:
- Cuts the extraction time of a grenade by six.
- Deployment of the grenade (being able to extract the grenade) in a safe and quick manner without wasting precious time.
- The Trigger Pouch allows the operative to extract a grenade in a one hand action, while keeping eyes on the target and one hand on the operatives’ weapon (a traditional pouch requires a two-handed action).
- Left & Right-handed action.
- Continuous eye contact with target (with a conventional pouch the operative will most times need to look at what he is doing).
- Quick deployment/extraction with gloved hands and without the need to look.
- Safer than traditional pouches.
