Replacement Holster Belt Loops?




My Winthrop IWB holster's belt loops come unfastened fairly often. Until my Milt Sparks gets to me, I have little choice but to try and find some replacement loops.

Any thoughts as to where I can get some? I've googled but not had any luck yet.

How about Winthrop? If it's just needing new snaps, the crafts section @ WalMart has snaps & the tool to crimp them in.

I've been on Winthrop's site a couple times now and I must keep missing where the replacement loops are. I don't see them on the store but maybe I'm just blind.

They answer e-mails quickly, too. As an alternative, you could tape the loop closed & just thread your belt through.

Not sure if this will help or not. I like Blade-Tech's IWB belt loops myself. They may be out of place on a leather holster, but then again, it may help. I tend to keep a spare set around incase I need them. My latest use I found is on a kydex knife sheath for IWB carry on a ESEE 4.

That would be the most affordable solution and I hadn't thought of it. Thanks!

If they work, I'll definitely use them.

The holster is black but I'm fine with brown or black. It's just annoying when I reach down and find that one of the snaps has come undone.
