K-Tek Announces Protective Stingray Pouch for Comtek Receivers

K-Tek has announced a new Stingray Comtek Pouch designed to provide protection for Comtek PR-216 series receivers while transporting and working on set or location.

With a compact form factor, this black essential cover provides access to jacks, switches, controls and the battery compartment, while it safeguards the receiver. K-Tek’s new pouch fortifies the receivers with 0.2-inch rugged molded hypoallergenic silicon to cushion the electronics and the housing.

The belt clip makes it easy to attach the Comtek unit to pockets and belts. The included 47-inch lanyard can be clipped to the pouch and worn around the neck or over the shoulder, and can be used to hang the unit off a director’s chair or on a sound cart.

K-Tek’s designers targeted two parts of the receiver that need special fortification: the battery compartment and the top user interface. An ample rectangular opening fully exposes the entire operating panel, allowing fingertip control of the on/off switch and the volume knob. The headphone jack still accommodates straight and 90-degree connectors. The test LED remains visible while the Stingray Pouch’s tall silicone lip helps protect the top panel, even when dropped.

To safeguard the battery compartment hinge, the Pouch features a protective 0.2-inch latex-free silicone cover that shields the battery compartment yet easily bends away to allow battery pack changes.
