Fits GP-5 DSP, GP-5 SSB & GP-7 SSB Models
Each frame is machined from solid blocks of Aircraft Grade 6061 Aluminum with hardened Type III Matt Anodized Finish + Red Release Latch!
The Exoskeleton Poly Hinged Locking Frame was designed to protect your GP radio at all costs. The industrial design adds additional grip with the milled ridges and and also a widened based for extra stability too.
The ridge height on the front and back prevents damaging both the case and screen.
The fire engine red pin lock is easily opened and closed using either the Radio clip as a tool or your finger nail. ( See Video )
The inputs, buttons and and scroll wheels are all accessible while in the exoskeleton frame. The inside is also lined with felt for added protection.
The intended use is undisclosed, however we produced these and have a few extras...

Well crafted GP SSB radio protection from minor bumps and abrasions. While I like the silicone protectors this frame is a bit less bulk in a niftier configuration.
So this exoskeleton was an excellent addition to this radio. Definitely gives it a very sturdy safe secure feeling. I’m giving it a five because of how good it was for the radio but I thought it was a little pricey
It's like a Pelican case for your radio. Transforms the GP-5 or GP-7 from a fun toy to a rugged outdoor adventure tool. I'd consider this a must have.
This frame is an excellent addition to the GP series radios; I have a minor quibble, though... There's not much clearance along one side of the USB jack - the cable supplied with the radio barely fits, but other USB cables with slightly larger housings on the plugs are forced into an angled entry into the jack, which could cause problems over time if an aftermarket cable is used.
On the other hand, I can make up a thin laminated "cheat sheet" with useful info (frequency schedules, operating notes, etc.); cutting it to the size of the radio and inserting it into the frame, covering the backside of the radio. This ensures I have it handy without having something extra to keep track of.
This Exoskeleton case is one of the best ideas to come out in the radio hobby in years. The fit is perfect, with all jacks and controls accessible. Adding the inner felt protects the radio from scratches while also making the fit snug. Making this out of aircraft grade aluminum instead of plastic is a huge plus and this product wouldn't be half the value otherwise. Every radio should have this as an optional accessory, and perhaps we are on the start of something new for everyone in the radio hobby.
