1445 Designs Inc. maker of the Blackjack “Family” of Helmet Flashlight Holders announces that Pelican Products Inc., will be adding several Blackjack models including the Ace, Full House, All In, and the crossover product Double Down to Pelican’s stunning lineup of lights. The original Blackjack BJ001 was introduced in 2005, and the current product lineup including the Ace, Full House, and All In continue in the revolutionary design of the first Blackjack and remain the first and only patented, under-the-brim flashlight mounts that have always been: Designed by Firemen, for Firemen. The Double Down is an innovative product designed to hold headlamp straps, and other accessory straps such as goggles in place on any hard hat, or wildland firefighting helmets.
Chris McCorkle, inventor of the Blackjack and veteran Phoenix (AZ) Fire Department firefighter says, “The Blackjack was designed out of my frustration with available helmet mounts on the market. In the last 10 years, we have been able to reshape the market for helmet lights in a better, safer direction due to pioneering design and real-world application. The first Blackjack I made was designed around the Pelican Stealthlite as that was what the PFD issued to us at that time. I think it is great to see us come full circle with Pelican. I am proud of what we have been able to accomplish thus far, and I know that this partnership with Pelican Products Inc. will benefit not only my fellow firefighters, but with our new “Industrial” crossover products like the Double Down, this partnership is going to be a game changer for anyone who wears a helmet, or a hard hat, and works in the dark, or low light environments on a worldwide scale.”
