BackUp Basket Weave Back Support with Belt Keepers

  • $ 69.95

By placing the "BackUp" on your utility belt, you turn your duty belt into a 4" weight lifting belt which will support the lower back. The same amount of pressure on your back is now spread over an area of 60 square inches, as opposed to 30 square inches. This will help prevent back strain caused by heavy lifting, wrestling suspects, or the day to day strain of bending, twisting and getting in and out of patrol vehicles. 

It is also designed to distribute the weight of the utility belt that is caused by the required equipment worn by law enforcement officers. The brace does not change the duty belt - equipment can be placed on your duty belt without any limitations. 

The BackUp works equally well with or without an inner belt.

I was suffering from lower back pain during and after my shifts on my days off. Once I purchased the backup brace, the pain immediately stopped! I didn’t feel any pain on my days or during my shifts. To me, the backup brace makes the duty belt more secure and comfortable. The only downside I can think of is the keepers can be difficult to get on at times but I’m getting better at it.

Thanks for the review! Yes - the keepers can take a little time to get used to, but we are glad you're back ache is gone! Thanks for the photo - the weave looks awesome.
Shoulder pain gone!

I've had the back up brace for about a month now and it works great! I work as a foot patrol security officer and use to get shoulder pain that would shoot up towards the back of my neck, after two weeks it was completely gone. I would highly recommended it.

Hi Oscar, happy 2019 to you! Thanks for the review - it's awesome to hear that your pain is gone! Stay safe.
Saved My Back!!

Awesome belt accessory. No more back pain! Love that you can't really tell it's on the belt. Also, very happy it comes in basketweave pattern, so it matches the rest of my gear.

Thanks for the review and the photo Christy!
backup brace

works great

Great to hear Jerry, and thanks for posting the photo! Looking good!

I honestly don’t know how I’ve gone so long without a BackUpBrace. On my feet all the time, bending up and down after a shift my back would be smoked! Being a bigger guy the belt causes sciatic issues where constant chiropractor adjustments have been a staple. Since using the BackUpBrace my back thanks me, my legs thank me and even my feet! My chiropractor is definitely on board with it and said my back has absolutely yielded the benefits! I’ve already got guys I work with wanting one!

Hi Josh, thank you so much for sharing! Your chiropractor is not the first to comment on the benefits their patients seem to be getting! And thanks for the photo, it's very much appreciated. P.S. I totally get the 'big guy' issues you are referring to! Jake
