A-DAP Steel Target Mount


The A-DAP Steel Target Mount is purpose built for our A-DAP Steel Target Systems.

Since 2015 we have utilized some shape and form of the A-DAP top bracket to mount our target systems to 2X4 boards. We even incorporated the shape and features into our Adjustable armored posts. This top bracket positions the steel target plates properly over our bases and allows the target plates to swing when struck. The design of our top brackets have also allowed for our accessory hostage bracket and paddle to be used for more focused training.

This Gen 5 A-DAP Top bracket REPLACES all previous generations of our A-DAP top brackets. This top bracket will function with ANY generation A-DAP target plate. If your top bracket is old, damaged and needs replaced..grab this one today.

What is included:
  • Left side of the Gen 5 Top Bracket
  • Right side of the Gen 5 Top Bracket
  • (4) carriage bolts, washers, and locking nuts
  • (2) 3/8″ Carriage bolts and lock nuts to fasten top bracket into breakdown base for storage

The Gen 5 Top Bracket ships already assembled for your convenience.


A-DAP Steel Target Mount

The A-DAP Steel Target Mount is the latest generation of our A-DAP target mounts. This current generation will work for ALL generations of our silhouette targets. Whenever we release an update or a new product, we put immense effort into commonality. You deserve a new bracket that is backwards compatible. Good news: If your current top bracket is worn out, this Gen 5 version is compatible. Grab one today to keep your systems in action.

New design, new functions.

The mount features two halves that are bolted together via (4) included carriage bolts with nuts and washers. This offers a distinct advantage over the welded unit. Previous top brackets were prone to “locking” onto boards if left in extremely damp conditions. The 2X4 boards were swelling and locking themselves into the bracket in these conditions. This was extremely difficult from a serviceability standpoint. Now simply unbolt the bracket from the post in these situations for maintenance.

This new mount is laser cut and CNC formed from 3/16″ steel. Forming is done to exacting standards for consistency and quality.

Backwards compatibility.

The Gen 5 mount is backwards compatible with all generations of our A-DAP system and hostage assemblies.

Answer: We include these extra bolts so you can fasten your Gen 5 top bracket into your Breakdown Base. We include these bolts with EACH top bracket, even if you are not buying a Breakdown base. If you do not need them, simply recylcle them.

7.) Does This Product Fall Under Prop. 65 Warnings?

Answer:Maybe. Just in case, be sure not to eat the paint or lick the target before or after you’ve shot it. If you are just curious, led tastes horrible and will probably cause mental damage. If you have done it once you are likely to do it again. Handle at your own risk, if you choose, you may wear an industry grade hazmat suit and gas mask with a HEPA filter and good luck charm on your wrist.
