    Any way to make belt slots smaller?

    In a belt slide style holster. Is there any type of shim (like Blade-Tech's) that'll make the belt slot cut for 1.75" belts work for 1.25" or 1.5" belts?

    There's gotta be a way!

    I use chicago screws and rubber spacer/washers for my kydex hoslters I make. Might work for leather as well.

    Oh that might work, good idea thanks! Here I was looking for some crazy fancy way and that's so simple I completely missed it. Where can I pick up said Chicago screws and washers/spacers?

    I'm still open to any other ideas too guys!

    If it's a leather holster.....

    go to a shoe repair or saddlemaker & have them stitch it up & add a little leather if needed. Most shoe repair shops can do it pretty cheap.
