The armature pivots between a first operational position enabling an operator to use the system, and a second stowed position. An anchor (76, 78) secures the pivot point to a helmet worn by the operator of the system. The pivot point further comprises a brace (70) having an axle shaft (62), a sleeve (42) integral to the armature and rotatable about the shaft, and a spring biased locking member (56) securing the sleeve in a selected one of the first and the second positions.
