iota Outdoors Awarded Patent for Triad Technology

iota Outdoors announced today the issuance of patent number 10,048,040 B1 for Triad Picatinny scope mounts by the US Patent Office.

The focus of the patent is the three-key adjustment system on the Triad and Triad ZL picatinny scope mounting systems. Designed to negate the tolerances allowed in picatinny rails’ machining specifications, every set of Triads come with 3 sets of interchangeable key inserts for mounting the scope rings to a picatinny rail within three different tolerances: +.0035, nominal, and -.0035.

“We worked hard to develop what we felt was the most innovative and accurate picatinny scope mounts available,” commented Derrick Ratliff, president of iota Outdoors, “This patent proves we accomplished what we set out to do.”

Triad picatinny scope mounts are available with or without iota’s patented ZeroLight Technology. Both are available in 30mm Medium and High as well as 34mm Low and High heights.
