MINELAB EXPLORER S, XS, II, AND QUATTRO METAL ARM CUFF
After breaking several of the original plastic Minelab
Explorer arm cuffs at the worst times while out in the field, I decided make a
better version. I worked with a local metal shop to fabricate a sturdier all
metal version of my own design. After several prototypes of different materials
and multiple field tests, we hit on a winner.
The arm cuff portion of the assembly is “U” shaped and fits your arm more
comfortably than the plastic Minelab Explorer “V” shaped arm cuff. It’s
extremely durable, lightweight, and very comfortable. You'll never have to worry
about breaking this one in the field or need to carry around a spare plastic
back-up arm cuff.
Several of my fellow Explorer users in my local
treasure-hunting club wanted one as soon as they saw it. Based on their positive
feedback, it was suggested that I should be selling these through detector
dealers... I decided to start offering them for sale.
As a result of my prototype testing, I ultimately settled on
aluminum construction over stainless steel. While stainless may seem like the
ideal solution, but the weight of the cuff was a major consideration. Aluminum
is 1/3 of the weight of stainless steel for the same thickness of material but
still very strong. In testing, to reduce the weight of the SS cuff, we had to
reduce the gauge of stainless used. The thin SS resulted in a cuff that flexed
during the lateral sweeping of the detector. However, by using aluminum we were
able to have the needed rigidity and while keeping the cuff lightweight.
Although rigid, because they are made from aluminum, the cup width can be
adjusted to the specific user. Spread if it too narrow or squeezed together as
needed for the ideal fit. The cuff and base are completely welded along each
side of the cuff. On the S & XS version with headphone adapter, the plug bracket
is attached onto the stand with pop rivets. The base of the cuff conforms to the
shape of the battery housing. The base covers the mounting screw slide slot over
the full range of cuff adjustment to form a shield from dirt or rain from
getting into the detector’s battery housing through the adjustment slot. The
cuff will not turn or rotate on the mounting screw because of the contoured
shape of the base.

The cuffs will be shipped with a SS attachment screw and a
screw retainer already installed. The cuff will also include a comfortable,
black, factory made, 1 ½” wide hook and loop strap that easily adjust to most
arms. The strap can be easily be reversed for RH or LH use.
We also include a self-adhesive pad to line the inside of the cuff. They are
included but not installed. These pads are UV resistant, and black in color (so
they don't show the dirt) and are easy to clean. My products have a high
performance, baked on, satin black powder paint.
Custom Made Arm Cuff Covers
Introducing a custom made arm rest cover for my arm cuffs.
Made of all weather, 3 mm thick padded neoprene, the same material wet suits are
made of. Designed and used by a metal detector enthusiast wanting a better
alternative to the bare metal of the arm cuff. The moisture-wicking action of
the neoprene keeps you comfortable on hot summer days and the thick padding adds
relief on those long hunts. The stretchable neoprene lined with spandex
form-fits to the cuff and will not slip off. This cover adds comfort and gives a
unique look to your machine.
I stock them in black but they can be special ordered (add 1 week to the item
shipment) in a variety of colors and patterns (red, navy blue, green, camo, leaf
camo, digital camo, leopard, and blue coral).
Differing colors of cuff covers makes it easy to find your detector in large
group hunts or team unity in competition hunts! The patent-pending, custom fit
design installs in a flash and is removes easily for cleaning. Proudly made in
Products will be promptly shipped using USPS.
If for any reason you don’t like any of these products, promptly return it and I
will give you a full refund (less shipping cost). We're so confident of our
products, if you ever break one under normal use, I will replace or repair it,
and you just have to pay shipping.
