    Holster 2ith 2 1/4" belt opening but 1 1/2" belt

    Have a holster, but it was made for a 2 1/4" wide belt. I don't have loops that large in my pants for a belt that large. Basically a 1 1/2" or 1 3/4" belt.

    While it works, it feels "loose" in a narrower belt, and I don't like the "loose" feeling. Are there ways to take up the "slack" between the holster and belt that work? Maybe something made that goes in the slot of the holster that will create a narrower opening?

    What kind of holster? I had a nylon one with the same problem. All I did was stick my belt in it and push it to the top of the loop. I then stitched the loop to the holster right below the belt creating a nice tight fit.

    Leather holster. Very stiff stuff. I probably have what I need to do something similar and double stitch it. Just hoping someone knew of some kind of insert or something so it's reversible.

    Don't know of an insert you could use but you could take up some space by sewing like Airman said.

    Good luck.

    Call these folks; I have the slide holster for mid sized autos and it is too wide to use for a spacer: but if you describe your situation they may have a smaller model that'll do the job.

    I'd mount the slide holster on my belt, then thread the slide through your leather one. Might work, or it may just be a solution which my father would describe as a racially insensitive snafu.

    The holster was made to wear on a sam browne duty belt,on one of the first holsters I made I screwed up and cut the belt slots too wide,I ended up cutting the stitches and sewing a piece of leather between the slots and then recutting the belt slots
