    CBST Clip Issue (?)

    Just wanted to get some feedback from you guys, but has anyone had any issues with the belt clip(s) on their CBST? Twice when I have gone to un-holster, the holster came right out... Definitely NOT good, esp. if it were a critical moment of SD. The clips are not bent in any way that I can tell, so I am throwing it up to a bad belt (not a gun belt). I would like to purchase from the "beltman" (any recommendations would be good there too), but I just wanted to see if my belt is in fact the issue. Thanks all! As a side note, the belt I am using for CC is 5mm thick and 1.5'' wide and made of quality leather (although slightly misshapen due to years of wear and my physique )

    EDIT:
    Thanks for the idea about the J hooks trekkiejt. I actually thought about that almost immediately after I posted. Anyone use them and like them? Seems like just the ticket for my current issue. Thanks!

    Back when the used plastic clips I broke several. (my fault) and then bent several of their metal ones.
    It would seem that if you can pull it out, they are likely bent so as not to sit flat with tension.

    You may be able to unscrew them, and bend them oh so slightly inward a little at a time.

    If that doesn't do, contact Mark at CB. Always fast and fair.

    5mm=1/5 inch. Maybe your belt is too thick for the clips. It sounds like the bottom lips ofthe clip aren't catching on the belt. Try bending the bottom of them so it catches the belt better. If not, see if Mark will send you the J hook clips and try those.
