    Los--there is SS music wire out there, may be too pricey, but it's the best of all worlds, can be formed into any shape and has spring-like properties. It may, like regular music wire, be able to be stabilized in the new shape by a treatment that can be done in a home oven. (Music wire has some odd properties). You'd want a spring forming setup to do the bending though, as the stuff is difficult to bend in a controlled way at the thicknesses you'd want. I think Small Parts sells it in small quantities.

    THANKS, Serafino.

    I think 1/8" diameter [Stainless Steel Rod] might be an optimum size for this application. I need to get my hands on some product and test for rigidity and flexibility.

    If the S/S prototype meets my objectives and goes into production, it will be named Covert/T Extreme.

    A thought... does the device deform during use? My belt is still and snug. I can see myself bending that wire in many different ways over the course of the day.

    Good question.

    The Covert/T is designed to be carried AIWB or IWB at 3:00/9:00 maximum position. It's going to be pretty tough to physically contort the body in such a way that it will effect the form or function of the holster as the exposed suspension wires of the Covert are in close proximity to the weapon. Perhaps not impossible, but not probable.

    The only body contact points of the Covert/T are located at the belt fasteners and once the weapon is holstered and the belt is cinched correctly, the weapon will ride tight to the body and prevent the holster body from sustaining deformation. Of course, there will be a small amount of belt fastener flex once the belt is cinched, but that's needed in order to achieve a tight and secured fit on the waistline.

    UPDATE:

    I made 4 prototype-C Coverts for a few friends over a week ago for field testing . Two are LEOs and they're using the Covert with their personal, off-duty CCW. One carries an old Smith 640, the other a G30. My other buddies (legal field) carry a G26 and a nice Kimber UCII in 45acp. The Coverts are made with 1.5" belt fasteners and have a 15 degree cant.

    So far, very good input from the testers.

    The Prototype-C has a newly designed handgun retaining stud thats completely covered and capped in rubber-silicone components. I like this feature a lot. The components are non-marring and very durable.

    In the next few weeks I'll be testing a few different types of vinyl coated galvanized steel rodding, for the main body.

    Those are photos of the Prototype-B.

    I'll post a few photos of the latest Covert/T (prototype-C) tomorrow. It's coming together pretty good.

    los, You're a man after my own heart. Years ago I came up with the "brilliant" idea for what I called the Bucket Holster. It involved transforming an OWB holster into a tuckable IWB holster. Your "hanger" holster's a bit more elegant, but equally as inventive.

    That's pretty inventive, too, but "pails" in comparison...

    I really like your IWB Holster conversion.

    This application would save the user a lot of money, for sure.
