Norotos Bayonet Rugged Helmet Mount


Pay Over Time with Bread Pay™


The Standard Rugged NVG Helmet Mount is our legacy commercial product and the military’s most widely used helmet mount. Also referred to as the “RHNO” mount, it sets the military and commercial standard for high-strength, quality and durability in a hands-free mount solution. The RHNO Mount gets its nickname from its appearance when it is flipped up on top of the helmet resembling a rhinoceros horn.

The Standard Helmet Mount | PN 1701010 clips into any helmet shroud that has a universal interface such as the Norotos Universal Shroud, MICH or PASGT front bracket assembly or other brand standard shrouds. The Standard Helmet Mount is equipped with a “HORN” interface that will accommodate a PVS-7 directly or a PVS-14 with a J-Arm adapter. It has an auto shut-off feature that will turn off the night vision device when it is flipped up over the helmet eliminating the green glow from the eye piece lens from showing down-range. The arm articulates with a “force to overcome” motion allowing the user to simply push the device upward to stow, or down into position. Tilt and Fore/Aft-Eye-Relief Adjustment provide custom-fit user experience that enables extended user operation with minimal fatigue contribution.

Decades of engineering experience and precision manufacturing contribute to the long-lasting durability of this hands-free mounting system. The Standard Rugged Helmet Mount is firmly established as representing the origins of Norotos’ commitment in providing robust stability and enduring quality for night vision mounting systems.
