The E2K 5.56 adapter plate makes it easier to mount a Safariland ELS fork  on an Esstac Kywi 5.56 pouch. The adapter plate is a simple but effective piece of laser cut .080 Kydex.

This adapter is intended for, and has only been tested on medium height 5.56 Kywi pouches. It may work on other size pouches, though it is not guaranteed.


  • Use the E2K to break the velcro connection between the Kywi insert and the inside of the pouch. Remove the insert.
  • Slip the long outer legs of the E2K between the molle straps on the back of the 5.56 Kywi with the shorter middle leg on top of the webbing.
  • Use a heat gun to carefully heat the two long outer legs until they can be bent around, locking the E2K in place.
  • Use a soldering iron to melt holes in the nylon Kywi. Use the holes in the E2K as a guide.
  • Install hardware and ELS fork.
  • Reinstall the Kywi insert.
