Safety Chamber Flags
The Safe Cycle Flex™
Chamber flags provide an immediate visual confirmation that a duty weapon is currently unloaded, but the Safe Cycle Flex does something more. This rugged, ejectable chamber flag for police officers was designed with patrol in mind, made to effectively block the chamber of an unloaded AR-15 (.223/5.56 only) and engage the bolt's extraction and ejection features.
How Does the Safe Cycle Work?
Manufactured using durable aluminum, the Safe Cycle Flex is made to the precise specifications of the typical .223/5.56 round, meaning a duty weapon's bolt can cycle it just as it would an empty or loaded cartridge. Because of this, a fully loaded magazine can be inserted in the weapon with the Flex engaged. The chamber remains blocked, keeping the firearm completely safe while in a cruiser, bag or rack.
Since the Safe Cycle is held by the duty rifle's extractor just like any cartridge, an officer can respond to a threat without deviating from training protocols — they need only use the weapon's charging handle to eject it. The cartridge-shaped aluminum body of the Flex chamber flag smoothly cycles the bolt and exits through the ejection port, allowing the firearm to function normally and chambering a live round.
However, we designed this chamber flag for police use knowing that things may not go according to plan while in the field. That's why the Safe Cycle Flex provides a backup ejection method for peace of mind — if an officer's training fails under stress, they can just grab the durable load-bearing cord and pull to remove the Flex and charge the weapon.
Benefits of a Safe Cycle Flex Chamber Flag
An ejectable chamber flag for police officers maximizes safety in the field without hindering service rifle deployment. The Safe Cycle Flex features a large, easy-to-grab loop covered in clear, pliable vinyl. With color options including bright red reflective, blaze orange and black with bright blue lines, it's engineered for exceptional visibility in an emergency situation. This unmistakable reminder to charge the weapon ensures an officer can prepare to handle any situation with minimal effort.
Additionally, engaging the Safe Cycle requires an officer to clear their duty rifle before returning it to storage, further increasing the safety factor for police weapons. It provides supervisors with a clear, no-questions visual that the weapon has been properly secured and stowed. And since the loop is pliable, it won't create storage issues in crowded racks, hard cases or cruisers.
The Safe Cycle Flex chamber flag is police-tested and approved for use by multiple agencies across the U.S.
