ModuLoader Frames are designed to bridge the gap between daily concealed carry gear and more “tactical” load carriage products like the extremely versatile Taco pouches from High Speed Gear, Inc. ModuLoader Frames are injection molded from the same unbreakable polymer as our belt loops and pancake wings, and allow the user to mount Taco pouches securely to a standard pants belt. This simple product largely eliminates the need for unnecessarily bulky padded MOLLE/PALS belts.
Frames are made to work specifically with HSGI Taco pouches. Taco pouches have a number of features that work with the Frames to hold the pouch in place. All Taco pouches have three horizontal rows of 1" webbing with no space in between the rows. The Taco pouches for rifle magazines are tacked down the center of these three rows to create two separate channels. On the Taco pouches, by selecting which two rows of webbing you pass the Frame through you can adjust the ride height up or down.
Frames come in four sizes. The pouch configuration you want will determine which size you select. Each size has a different number of vertical "fingers" (5, 4, 3 or 2). The fingers slide behind two of the horizontal rows of webbing on the inside face of the pouch and are secured by installing the included bracket along the bottom of the Frame. Taco rifle mag pouches use two fingers, pistol mag pouches use one finger. If you will be mounting more than one pouch on a Frame you must skip a finger between each pouch. For example, if you want to mount two rifle mag carriers on a Frame, you would order a 5 finger Frame. The two rifle mag carriers would mount on the four outer fingers leaving an empty finger in the middle of the Frame assembly. If you want to assemble a frame for one rifle and one pistol mag carrier, you would select a 4 finger frame. If you want to assemble a Frame for two pistol mag carriers, you would select the 3 finger Frame. If you want to assemble a Frame for one rifle mag carrier, you would select a two finger Frame.
This is our Subload Base Frame set up. We have permanently mounted drop loops to the Frame in the belt size you select when ordering. This configuration lowers the pouches to help clear armor, chest rigs, etc. while still giving stable and easy access to your primary magazines or equipment. If you order this base option, none of our other belt options will integrate into the system. This is a dedicated dropped equipment option. Each kit includes the Frame with belt loops mounted (3 loops for 5 finger frames, 2 loops for all others), locking bar and all needed hardware.
Rifle magazine pouches mount on "two fingers." Pistol magazine pouches mount on "one finger," but require extra space for the belt loops to be mounted. When mounting more than one pouch, it is necessary for one "finger" to be a spacer between the pouches. Examples:
•One rifle magazine - Two Finger Frame
•One pistol magazine - Three Finger Frame recommended (belt loops mounted to outside Fingers, pistol pouch mounted to center Finger).
•One Rifle magazine and one pistol magazine - Four Finger Frame
•Two rifle magazines - Five Finger Frame
•Two pistol magazines - Three Finger Frame
•Three pistol magazines - Five Finger Frame
Like all RCS products, the ModuLoader Frames are proudly designed and manufactured in the U.S.A., and are covered by our unconditional lifetime warranty.

I've been looking for a subload setup and this does everything I want and everything as advertised
Setup is easier than attaching a TACO to MOLLE
Found the 2-finger to sag too much on a double rifle/pistol taco. I'd go to a 4 finger if you plan on going that rout. Fine with a Rifle/Pistol though.

This is a great concept but the belt loops are to sloppy, the taco pouches slide around on your belt to much. The belt loops are about 1/2" thick on the inside diameter where most belts are about 1/4" thick, that extra 1/4" make the taco holder move around a lot on your belt. Raven makes great products I have a lot of their holsters but on this product they could have done a better job. instead of designing belt loops for this product they took the belt loops from their holsters to save development costs. I expect more from Raven products.
We don't hide or edit reviews, but we do comment from time to time.
The standard belt loops do stand off a bit from the belt (slightly less concealable, but better access to the magazines). If the belt is a proper gun belt, tight and the right size for the loops there should be minimal play. If one is looking to pull the system in as tight as possible to the belt, order your ModuLoader Frames with the Pancake Wing option.
The Taco pouches themselves may have a bit of vertical play but should have minimal lateral play when attached to the ModuLoader platform. We do not make the Taco pouch though and they may vary from pouch to pouch.
This review is anonymous otherwise we'd try to reach out to the customer. Hopefully they took advantage of our return policy if the product didn't meet their expectations.

Shipped fast, easy to put together (even give you lock tight for the screws), fits great and tight. Works great for other gear that is Molle. I'll be buying more soon.

Great product. Supportive, compact, and easy to set up.
I purchased the base with the HSGI Taco pouch and setting up the load out was a breeze, and before using Lock-Tite, it's easy enough to swap out carry loads. Ultimately, I've chosen the two Rifle and Pistol mag load as shown in one of the preview images for the base. The base is supportive on my nylon belt and it is hassle free to remove and swap out.
Definitely recommend and it is my go-to from now on.

Great product. Work very well with the taco pouches A good alternative to other subload platform or even leg rig.

I purchased the sub load base to add a Tactical Assualt Gear Double Rifle Shingle. This allows me to carrier two extra M4 mags and two extra Glock mags in addition to the ones on my plate carrier. I have them riding low to clear the carrier.
It is recommended that you should use the TACO pouches but my TAG pouches work GREAT!!!!

The RCS Moduloader Frames were exactly the solution I was looking for. I owned a pair of HSGI double tacos that were initially on my plate carrier. A couple carbine classes and active shooter scenarios for my job... magically made my plate carrier slick.... ;)
I didn't want to waste the tacos because I really liked them, and I needed a lightweight setup for teaching. When I found the Moduloader, it was instant satisfaction. I run the subload base, as I have some shoulder problems and the extra inch or two help ease pain. The installation COULD NOT have been easier. Congrats on a great product RCS, I'll be buying a few more.

Great product. It meets the needs to have magazines available. Frames can work on different brands of molle pouches. This setup is ideal for everything from a day at the range, class, or in full kit. Mags are dropped down enough to run a plate carrier.

Many people agree the HSGI Taco pouches are the best thing going...now how to mount them on a belt??? In comes RCS with the very best way I have found....the Moduloader frames. They work great any don't leave you reliant on Molle attachments to use the Taco pouches. Really....brilliant! Easy on/off durable. My only recommendation is that RCS explains how many "fingers" you need to purchase for what kind of setup...just more examples maybe. Overall, great and well worth the cash.

Mounted on my taco pouches and went to range with the belt loops going both directions. Either direction my magazines came out easily and the pouches stayed where they were supposed to.
