I recently picked up a minimalist IWB leather holster with pretty good reviews on sale. It uses a spring tension metal clip (about 1.25" x 2") but I find that the clip doesn't provide quite enough clearance for a thicker belt when sliding it on and I can't really get the clip open enough to slip over pants/belt without a lot of difficulty.

I seem to recall seeing a product to do a replacement with leather belt loops but the ones I am seeing don't look like they will work for this. Or maybe there is an alternaive replacement clip. Figure you all may have seen something and can make suggestions if it exists.

Thanks

How does that clip attach to the holster? Most of the conversions I've seen are for kydex holsters that have the generic clip that uses 2 screws to attach it. It almost looks like that one is basically seen into the holster.

As far as replacement clips in general, if it works with the holster in question I'd go with an Ulticlip, specifically the Ulticlip XL.

Yes, most of what I saw on initial look was Kydex or OWB.

Not sewn in. Theres a slot in top and bottom on side of holster and inside of clip slips down through the slots, outside of clip has tension pressing against.

edit: The Ulticlip looks like it might work. And they are based out of IL. May need to contact them to ensure compatibility though.

The ulticlip XL would not work due to mounting platform. The basic ulticlip looked like it should have worked but it was maybe a 1/4" off. Have to use as is I guess or start a holster box ;-) unless I find something else.

Might as well join the rest of us and start your box. :cry:
