Often Replicated, Never Duplicated
Tripwire Operations Group designed and created the original live (real) material explosive detection K9 training kit in 2005 and has since delivered thousands of our custom kits to law enforcement and military units around the globe. We aim to continuously improve upon the kit, with input from our extensive clientele, which has brought us to our latest generation of our kit.
Our custom-cut polyethylene foam inserts have a “closed-cell structure” that makes it virtually impermeable to water and highly resistant to odor transmission.
Prior to being placed in our custom-designed hard-storage case, each and every product is handled using approved FBI evidence handling techniques and packaged in LOKSAK™ brand OPSAK® odor and vapor proof barrier bags, which eliminates the potential for the cross contamination of odors.
Many have tried, but none have been able to successfully replicate our methods and products. Whether our top-notch materials and scents or our U.S. Department of Transportation approved EX Number*, there is no equivalent explosive training kit designed specifically for K9 teams available anywhere else.
*An EX number is a number, preceded by the prefix “EX–”, which is issued and used by the Department of Transportation to identify an explosive which has been tested and classified by DOT. This assigned number allows Tripwire Operations Group to transport the kit in its advertised configuration – packaged in double odor barrier bags and contained within the custom cut closed-cell foam inserts inside of the hard-protective case.
Without an approved EX number, which no other K9 kit brand currently holds, the kit cannot be transported in its advertised configuration. This means each individual product must be packaged separately, marked accordingly and transported outside of the protective case. Immediately prior to or upon arrival at the customers location, the items then must be handled, again, to transfer them from their transportation vessels to the storage case to achieve advertised configuration. This is not only unprofessional, but drastically increases the potential for the contamination of the products and cross-contamination of scent…or the others just transport your products illegally.
See U.S. Department of Transportation regulations at 49 CFR 171.8 and 49 CFR 173.56.
