BackUpBrace Basket Weave Duty Belt Back Support for Law Enforcement w/ Keepers
If you have any pain or discomfort from wearing your duty belt for long hours, the BackUpBrace is what you need.
Place it on your duty belt to spread the load and relieve pain and stress on your lower back. It acts like a weightlifting belt; it spreads the load over a wider area, thereby reducing the pressure per square inch.
This will help prevent back strain caused by carrying around heavy gear all day, wrestling suspects, or the day to day strain of bending, twisting and getting in and out of patrol vehicles.
The BackUpBrace does not materially change the duty belt. Equipment can be placed on your duty belt in practically the same way as before. It's almost invisible once worn, and does not alter your appearance in the way suspenders do.
The BackUpBrace works equally well with or without an inner belt.
The BackUpBrace has been a very effective way to relief back pain and stress for individuals in the following industries:
- Law Enforcement
- Border Patrol
- Correctional Services
- Military Police
- Private Security
Special pricing is available for bulk orders from departments, agencies and wholesalers. Simply email your request to us with details of your requirements.

After a brief adjustment period. What a difference! Thanks BackUpBrace for make my day better and relieving my pain. You have an amazing product.
Thanks Jeff, you just made our day! We appreciate the feedback, and thank you for your service, especially on the heels of National Police Week. Stay safe!
The product is stiff, and requires a lot of effort to assemble your duty belt. I was told by another individual that it requires some breaking in. It does it’s job, but it does require some work to use.
Hi PSO Beck,
Thank you for your review. It can take some work to get the brace just the way you like it, but the long term benefits are worth it!
I’ve only worn this product for 5 days. I could tell on the first day there was a difference in the support I felt from my belt. Having recently slipped my L2 disc, I have had a lot of pain in my hips and lower back. This product has reduced the amount of pain by reducing the pressure on different points in my lower back. After 5 days of using this product and padded shorts I am very happy with the difference in daily pain during and after work. Hopefully with this product and better personal habits I can continue a pain free career.
Derek, we are thrilled that the BackUpBrace has resulted in much reduced pain for you. That's the kind of feedback that really makes us all proud of what we are able to do: give a little back to the men and women that serve our communities. Wishing you all the best!
Now that I have your attention with the Title, I would like to review the back up brace.
I am 47yo been doing Police type work since the early 90s when I entered the Marine Corps as a MP. In 1998 I started Municipal Police work In Pennsylvania. First part time, then Full time for University of Penn Police Department, in 2003 I was hired at my current department.
As any other Police officer with time, my lower back kills me. I have tried everything, heating pads, Icy hot, lidocaine patches. Earlier this year I ordered the suspender system for under the vest and shirt. I made it about 3 hours before I came back to the Station and stripped the damn suspender system off and hung them in my locker where they continue to hang and collect dust. (For me personally they were constricting and I felt like I couldn’t get comfortable)
In August I was on vacation in Outer Banks North Carolina laying in bed trying to sleep and was trolling Facebook. An ad popped up for the back up brace. So I ordered it.
To Date, I have worn it on patrol for almost 120hrs. Although it’s not a miraculous cure for back pain. I can say from my experience is that I feel my pain is there but I don’t feel as feeble at the end of a 10hr shift.
My only negative comment is the belt keepers they provided. I cannot feed them through the brace and belt. I use the keepers I have always used and go on either side of the brace.
I am a completely satisfied with back up brace and will continue to wear it every shift. When others ask when they see it I tell them how happy I am. Good luck to all who try it.
Daly, thank you for you honest and detailed review. Love the title :P
In what way can we improve the keepers?
I payed for 2 day shipping and the backup brace was delivered in 6 days. No money have been returned or suggested. I have been wearing the backup brace for a week and have noticed no change in my lower back pain.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Our records show we the order was received the evening of 2/27, and processed at 5:55am the following day. Unfortunately we have no control over the carrier, and in this case the item was delivered on 3/4. We apologize for the inconvenience and have refunded the difference in shipping to your account. We hope you obtain relief from the product, and please remember you have 90 days to return it for a full refund if you are not 100% satisfied. Many thanks.
