It’s been a while since Safariland released a tactical holster with a thumb break. The SLS feature was a huge evolutionary step forward in retention. For those customers who feel a more conventional thumb break still has value, an add on kit is being made available. Utilizing the same mounting points, this heavy duty nylon webbing and snap based thumb break system is designed to fit over and replace the SLS rotating hood. A metal insert in the thumb break allows the end user to reshape it for an optimum angle. Because of differing holster configurations and pistol frames, the customer will be required to do some final fitting and adjusting and this should not be considered ready to go on receipt. Special tools and additional materials will be required to fit individual holsters. Similar thumb break systems can be custom built to retrofit a number of different holsters.
