CTech Tactical Lightweight CopBox and ChiefBox Cabinets For Public-Safety Upfits

Transferrable Storage Box Solution Designed for Police, Fire, EMS, UtilityCTECH Logo Carts, Cabinets, Drawers

While attending an IACP Conference a couple years ago, we found CTech Manufacturing a supplier of aluminum cabinets for the public-safety market. We were looking for a tactical storage cabinet that was lighter with better mounting options for our SUV upfits.

Lightweight Storage Cabinet For Police SUV UpfitWe like CTech’s CopBox and ChiefBox Tactical Cabinets designed for MID and FULL size SUV’s. There are 16 different standard sizes to choose from or you can design your own. The CopBox and ChiefBox have a QuickLink Mounting solution that make it possible to transfer the cabinet to a newer style vehicle in the future. You might have to replace the mounting plate depending on the model.

Red lightweight storage with whiteboard for SUVWe recently installed the red F47-351 ChiefBox for Little Creek Volunteer Fire Company’s new command vehicle as part of an upfit services project. The F47-351 has four drawers including a pull-out whiteboard and a compartment for SCBA’s, etc. Installation was quick and easier than a wood cabinet.

The CopBox and ChiefBox are significantly lighter than wood cabinets and their patented MotionLatch allows one-handed drawer opening. They also allow you to access the spare tire in some vehicles and CTech offers a lifetime warranty.

Motorola Mic Adapter for Boston Leather Fireman Straps

NNTN8271 Mic AdapterMotorola Solutions recently introduced an adapter for remote microphones and Boston Leather fireman straps with clips. Designed for Motorola APX Series P25 public-safety two-way radios, the adapter assembly works with NNTN8575 XE remote microphones . This accessory has a ring loop attached to the top of the clip for hanging on hooks or the antenna.

You will need the NNTN8271 adapter that replaces the remote microphone clip. Also required is a button clip that snaps to the adapter. Motorola sells the buttons in packs of five (NNTN8749) but we will provide them in a single pack too (MAG-NNTN8749).6542-1 Radio Strap with Mic Clip

The Boston Leather 6542 straps with microphone clips are popular with firefighters and ems personnel. The clip provides a more secure attachment for the larger microphones. They are available in extra-large (6542XL) for tall individuals over 74 inches and  also with reflective safety tape (6542R).

Motorola Minitor VI – Buy the Intrinsically-safe Model or Not?

Motorola Minitor VI PagerWith the introduction of the Motorola Solutions Minitor VI fire pager, you now have the choice between a UL certified intrinsically-safe model or one that does not have the certification.

Intrinsically-safe electronic equipment can be used in hazardous atmospheres with dangerous concentrations of flammable gases or dust. Non-intrinsically-safe electronic devices could cause an explosion by creating a spark or excessive heat.

Minitor VI ANSI/ISA TIA 4950

Should I Order an Intrinsically-Safe Minitor VI?

Unless your fire department has a formal intrinsic safety program, you probably should save the $50 and buy the non-intrinsically-safe model. Another way to determine if you need IS is to check your radio for the FM Certification label. If your radio is not IS then your Minitor VI should not need the certification.
