Some examples of what can be done with our products

Just to show you a few examples of what can be done with our products here are some photos. Each will include a brief listing of what was used to produce the holster or carrier.

This photo shows several types of holsters that can be made. First, the fold over. Very minimalist in design it is also lightweight, durable, and requires a minimal amount of hardware to produce. To the right is the traditional "pancake" style features a straight drop and open bottomed "slide style." And finally a pancake style single magazine carrier with retention adjustment built right in.

The fold over design requires a little more patience and skill when molding but produces an excellent result. Shown here with a basic over hook for belt carry.
Materials used:
  • .080 Coyote Kydex
  • 1- 8-32 x 3/8" oval head screw
  • 1 - plain post
  • 1- O-ring

This belt slide style holster is even simpler to make. Molding is done one side at a time and is far more forgiving if you happen to make a mistake. Even better.... it features the popular "straight drop" most shooters tend to prefer and also features an open muzzle for those of you that carry both full sized and compact versions of the same pistol.

From the back side you see DIY's 1.5" closed belt loops in action. Designed for low profile carry these loops are sold with or without pre-punched holes.
Materials required:
  • .0801 Black Kydex
  • 4- 8-32 x 3/8" oval head screws
  • 4- 8-8 Eyelets
  • 2- 1.5" closed belt loops
  • 4- O-rings
  • 4- 1/4" slotted posts
The low profile single magazine carrier is another pancake molding example. With this we've taken the extra step of making the retention adjustable.
Materials needed:
  • .080 black Kydex
  • 4- 8-8 eyelets
  • 4- O-rings
  • 1- 8-32 x 1/2" oval head screw

  • 4- 1/4" slotted post backs
