Adjustable plate attachment points are only as thick as necessary to
clear the hardware from any potential damage to your gun. This allows
the holster to be

added bulk. Because the Attachment point is lower on the body of the

adhesive hook and loop fastener that is trimmed and applied to the
holster by the end user. The backing pad attaches to the muzzle end
of the body side of the holster. The pad pushes the grip tighter into
the body allowing for even better concealment and added comfort.

Installation of foam back pad
The foam back pad,
attached to the muzzle end of the body side of the holster, pushes
the grip tighter into the body allowing for even better concealment
and added comfort. The customizable foam pad is shaped and applied
to the holster by the end user to give them the best possible fit. A
generously sized piece of foam is provided (enough to make at least
two pads) so the customer can try different configurations.
Note: A sharp
razor knife, Dremel, or band saw are the most common methods of
cutting and shaping the foam. Apply the 'fussy' side of the hook &
loop to the holster body for comfort when not using the foam.
