    I don't care for the crosses either, I don't want anything that sticks out even a little. It doesn't bother me that it's a cross even though I'm not superstitious. Crossbreed does have other clips available and it's no problem to get those instead. On my last one I got the J-hooks,darn near invisible.

    Not a J-hook at all.

    That's a standard steel C-clip. If it's like the last one, they're made by a company in CA by the name of CDL Springs. They are uber-strong. Just gently putting it onto your finger, will have it throbbing in just a few seconds. The sometimes tend to have sharp edges, though.

    Is the subject holster a Tuckable..? If not, I think there's too much concern on a moot issue as proper attire would/should completely conceal the rig's clip.

    The same people will figure out you're carrying as soon as they spot the Clip, regardless of insignia or design the clip may have on it.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    I would be shocked anyone, other than those already familiar with Crossbreed, would assume anything regarding a firearm by these symbols. And the ones that will know will most likely be a fellow firearms carrier - or a spouse or girl friend. I would not worry about the cross logo of CB. More likely to be requested to deliver last rites than to get a man with a gun because of their logo.

    Yes, you can...And that is exactly what I do and have been doing for some time now when I carry IWB but otherwise must be absolutely low profile as possible.

    Holster IWB with clip against pant and then belt cinched tight against the clip results in same if not nearly the same amount of anti lift/sag tightness.

    Agreed with all others that logo stamping the clip is not an optimal placement.
    But then as carrying IWB the entire rig including clip is concealed anyway if the wearer is doing so properly.

    Just my opinion...but ...the majority of the public would not know what the clips were even if they said "GUN HERE". I am against logos on anything that shows but for the most part, the only ones that may notice are our fellow CCW holders that carry as well.

    The Cross on our clips is more a statement of faith vs any form of advertisement.

    As has been pointed out someone would have to be familiar with our logo to "make" a clip as being attached to a holster in most cases.
    And that is IF they even noticed the clip.
    Blouse your shirt a bit and it's gone, even if you are tucked.

    I summed it up in another forum awhile back and have pasted that comment below.

    The Cross is there on purpose and will stay, it is not negotiable.

    There are far more folks who are not offended or are even inspired by it than there are those who are offended.

    We get lots and lots of compliments on the fact that we are not afraid to stand for our beliefs, and that includes the belief in Christ and His sacrifice for us, hence the Cross.

    It is integral to my company logo, my products and my life, I will not remove it.

    If that costs me a few sales, so be it.

    thanks 'fer listenin'


    I am tired of being pushed around, demonized, pigeonholed and asked to conform to other folks comfort level because I believe in Christ and His sacrifice, this is still a free country and if I want to put a cross on my clips, I will.

    I intend no offense to anyone who believes differently, but I know what I believe and am not ashamed of it.

    With that said, I won't beat anyone over the head with The Bible either, I promise!

    A SuperTuck will be my Christmas present to myself, in part because of your stance.

    I think I know the answer, but why did you switch from a punched-in cross to a raised one - weakness from the hole in the clip?

    Most likely. Have any of you had people ask what the clips are, those of you whose clips are visible?

    You can get the supertuck with "j-hooks."

    I applaud you Mark. I enjoy seeing people standing up for what they believe in. I agree with the never compromise attitude. You are a role model for other business owners. Thank you and keep doing it your way.

    Mark, thank you for not taking it on the chin and standing up for what you (as do I) believe in. Seeing this post makes me like your product even more.

    Mark,

    I do not share your faith, but I completely respect your right, as the maker, to put signs of your faith on your product. Since I don't share that faith, those markings are meaningless to me either way - I won't buy because of them, and I won't NOT buy because of them. Rather, I make my choices based on quality - and I have read a lot of good reviews about your holsters. Probably be ordering one in a few weeks.

    If, after I get it, it turns out that I think the crosses are too noticeable, then I may do something about changing the clips - but that is my choice and my responsibility. As long as you provide a quality product, I have no complaints :)

    Now, back to the original topic - if you put marks on the clips that hold up a sign saying "GUN", well, we're going to have a problem there...
