Switches – Commercial Types

While bomb builders often improvise their own switches and triggering devices, they are equally apt to purchase and use commercially available switch products. The advantage of them is reliability through factory quality control, and the fact that they are quite inexpensive.

Because of their reliability, commercial push button switches, toggle switches and rocker switches are commonly used in improvised explosive devices. They are particularly common in suicide/homicide belts and vests.

Securesearch, Inc. uses a wide range of commercial switches in our products. They have an x-ray signature that is quite different from that of any improvised switch. For training purposes, it is important that screeners and bomb squad members be shown examples of many different switches, and their x-ray images.

U.S. M34 White Phosphorous Smoke Grenade Replica
Order Sku: ITA-176-M34
Securesearch, Inc. manufactures a replica US M34 White Phosphorous smoke grenade. This grenade was developed as an improvement over the US M15 grenade that had a cylindrical steel body with a flat base. The M34 body is slightly lighter in weight with a grooved surface, which burst more readily. It contains approximately the same amount of filler, while increasing the effective radius by about 25%. The M34 body has with a grooved and tapered base, allowing it to be fired from a rifle grenade adapter. The increased bursting radius was now greater than the typical throwing distance, endangering the thrower if there was no local cover, so projection from a grenade launcher is a safety advantage.
