May 4, 2020 – Today, True North Concepts, LLC announced the launch of the True North Modular Holster Adapter, a rugged adapter designed to eliminate the unwanted movement, flex and sliding that are common in most factory belt adapters.
The Modular Holster Adapter is the first adapter of its kind to specifically solve the problem of unwanted movement that nearly all polymer belt adapters create for law enforcement, military and other shooters. It does this by combining modularity with rigidity. Unlike other adapters, the True North holster adapter lets the user decide how they want to carry their pistol rather than forcing them into a one-size-fits-one-belt carry system.
Its modular design gives holsters mounted to the adapter greater mounting rigidity. The adapter’s proprietary modular positioning features include:
• 20-degree-wide mount positioning range; 10-degree forward cant and 10-degree negative cant
• Three vertical mounting points set ½-inch apart giving the user three height options
• Supports “Mid-Ride” mode of carry that will drop the pistol below his or her belt line, allowing it to clear body armor and pouches.
The Modular Holster Adapter fits all Safariland “three-hole pattern” type holsters and multiple brands that use this method of attachment. It also supports common quick detach holster systems, including the QLS. It’s made from non-ferrous DFARS-grade 6061-T6 aluminum, is Type 3 MIL-SPEC hard coat anodized and is made in America.
The Modular Holster Adapter mounting system gives users two primary mounting options – the ability to thread the mounting bars through PALS webbing to attach the holster to MOLLE-type battle belts, or to bolt the adapter directly onto any standard gun belt with a width of up to 2 ¼-inches. The Adapter also includes mounting points for use with a wide array of popular quick release belt mounts, including Tek-Lok and polymer MOLLE-type hardware. It is available now in black and dark earth finishes.
