Isn't it called a stacking swivel? If that is the case... pulled this off of dictionary.com

–noun
a metal swivel attached to the stock of a military rifle for use in hooking three rifles together to form a stack.

They unstack easily.Hole digging ,etc is sometimes best done with two hands.Stacked weapons are not laying in mud,sand,etc or leaning semi-secure against a tree.
