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.

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
Back Relief

As a 40 + year veteran of Law Enforcement, this is the first time, in a very long time that my back does not hurt at end of shift.

Thank you for your comment and review. More importantly, thank you for your 40+ years of service!
Amazing product!

I was a little skeptical about this brace at first, but I decided to try it out and I’m very glad I did! I felt an immediate difference the moment I put my duty belt on with the backup brace. My lower back pain did not persist like it normally does throughout my shift and made the duty belt feel like it was lighter. I can now stand with my duty belt without experiencing any discomfort or shooting pains in my lower back.
I told my co-workers about the backup brace and they too love the product.
Thank you for making the Backup Brace!

Glad you love it Eric, and thanks for sharing your setup!
