    One way snaps getting loose

    Does anyone else have a set of one way snaps that are getting loose? Is there any way to tighten them up agian or do you have to buy new snaps and leather straps for an IWB holster with leather loops?

    Some snaps you can take a pair of pliers and gently oblong the portion that goes onto the other bit(I would call it the female side, if we were talking bolts). This just basically changes the geometry slightly and makes the snap a little tougher to remove. I've only done this on normal snaps haven't had to do it with the one way snaps but it should work:)

    Oh and do it just a little at a time if you decide to do this, you don't want to overdo it just a little bit oblong works for me.

    Have you thought of contacting the holster maker and asking him to install new snaps?

    Glad to hear it worked for ya;) That's been my experience as well, might not be the "right" way to do it, but so far it's been working on some of my older rigs I've got laying about:)

    Take care!
