The point where the holster attaches to the belt is a critical point of contact. Plastic clips and loops loose their shape and strength, which can lead to a catastrophic failure of the holster during the deployment of your weapon. We’re making sure that never happens to our customers. That’s why Q-Series uses a super strong spring steel clip. It grips tightly around the belt (or on the waistband if you’re not wearing a belt) and stays where you put it.
