    Got my Alessi Bodyguard...

    But I can't get the thumb break to snap for the life of me. I did the plastic bag trick and have made sure that the weapon is fully seated, I even tried pushing the male side of the snap into alignment but the two sides just wouldn't quite make it. If anyone has any tips or suggestions I would be very grateful.




    Thanks,
    Searn

    Post a couple of pictures from different angles and we may be able to figure out what the problem is.

    Would switching to a pull-through snap be possible/desirable?
    Yes a picture would really help.

    Don't be so quick to stretch a holster. Just wear it for a bit with the gun in.

    You are aware that they use one way snaps correct?

    FIXED!

    I stopped by the PD and one of the officers chuckled and used a flat nosed screw driver to push the male side into place. I left it over night and all is now good. Someone mentionde the pull through snaps, that is what I ordered I just don't feel like waiting another 6 months for replacement holsters. Thanks for all of the input I appreciate the help!

    The next holster in line to arrive is a Tucker Silent Thunder so I am not anticipating any more break in issues for a while.

    Happy New Year to ALL!!

    Neat that you got someone at the PD to help you
