    Modifying an old holster question

    I've got this old kydex holster I'd like to modify. I'd like to replace the belt straps with J hooks. Is this possible? I've seen J hooks offered as an option, but don't know if they are sold separately or if I need a specific style. I know the existing straps/snaps come right off because the male end is held on with screws.
    Can someone here point me in the right direction?

    Thanks

    I would suggest calling a holster mfg such as Crossbreed and asking them. They are a sponsor on this forum and I would think they would have everything you would need.

    Good luck..

    I've dabbled in holsters, making most of my own, but not kydex, leather. If we could see a pic of it, I might be able to determine the possibilities.
    I have re-molded my old Crossbreed holster to accommodate a different gun, so I know that is possible.

    I can tell you that kydex clips are quite expensive ...if I remember correctly, they cost me around $17 for a pair and I'm not sure if that included shipping.

    PAcanis,
    On this forum, go to the thread "Homemade Holster". This might give you some ideas.

    Good luck.

    Good call! I was going to point out that Kydex clips are probably one of the simpler kydex things to make yourself, but the clip you found there looks even sturdier!

    It's even a double, just like the belt loops on the holster now. I'm looking forward to getting it.
