    If the epoxy doesn't work, I'd suggest you look at 3M's VHB tapes. They make quite a few different types, depending on what you're trying to stick together. For no more than you would need, you may be able to get a sample from 3M or one of their distributors.

    You will need a small gap between metal clip and plastic can, I suggest Goop brand silicone based adhesive. You can get it at hardware or many dollar stores. You will have to let it sit up overnight but it will hold well and you will still be able to peel it apart if you want to move the clip to a second can.

    I had an idea to make a spare magazine holder out of stuff I already had. I happened to have a small flashlight holder with a torn belt loop that was the perfect size for my mag. It fits nice & snug but still easy to slip out with velcro flap I also had an old cell phone cover with a good belt clip. I cut the belt clip off leaving plenty of leather material around it about the same size as the flashlight holder. I put the two together using Shoe Goo. I've found Shoe Goo the best for cementing unlike materials together, in this case leather to nylon. So far the mag holder works out real good on my belt. I have no fears of it slipping off because the cell phone holder where the clip came off always stayed on my belt.

    I've used Shoe Goo for mending many things, even pockets with holes in them from otherwise good pants. I've used it even on shoes, lol. Leather, rubber, plastic, wood, cloth - they all stuck for a long, long time, longer than the item I glued had outlived its usefulness. I haven't tried it on metal yet. When using Shoe Goo use as much as you can at about the same time for different repairs. The stuff will harden in the tube once the tube is opened. It's much easier to use than epoxy.

    Is this thread going to become a "sticky"?

    Blue loctite is an anaerobic, i.e. it works in the absence of oxygen. JB Weld will do the trick.

    You could use a pop rivet. Just be quick with inserting the rivet.

    I am looking forward to rollo's follow up thread where everything went wrong. should be any day now..

    Otherwise I think the best options have already been provided. Up to you to decide. If you go for drywall screws do youself a favor and step up to gold screws. Hardened as opposed to the pot metal drywall screw.

    How about auto trim double-sided tape?

I have widened the circumference with a couple pairs of pliers and have it fashioned to fit a container of pepper spray. So far it has actually worked out better then expected. I'm generally not into the whole "do it your self/rig something up" approach. Now the problem is how to attach it... What kind of adhesive would you recommend? I was thinking maybe blue locktite?
    I might have missed a whole lot since the original post. Loctite is corrosive. Not kind to anything other than threaded metal to metal applications.
    I recommend velcro or hot glue gun. Matter of fact...if you can sew the clip to the holster even better.
