FAQ - Universal Mounting System (UMS)
FAQ - Sheath, Holster, Carrier Mounting (lateral, upside down, etc.)
We normally get asked if our sheaths or holsters can be mounted in a particular fashion.
Every sheath, holster, magazine carrier, flashlight/taser/etc. carrier that we make comes with our universal mounting system built right in. If you notice, our sheaths, holsters, etc. all have universal spacing of their rivets, or eyelets, not just at the top, limiting your options, but all the way around. This is no mistake. In fact, we use 30-40% more hardware in our fabrication of your new sheath or holster than is industry standard. This is done for two reasons;
Reason #1 - Strength. First and foremost. Ridiculously Overbuilt is not just a slogan. It exists in every product that we make. Our bindings support each other, and back each other up. They are spaced far enough from the edge and the blade so that they are protected as is the blade in the event of a fall, etc. The edge protects the eyelets, which reinforce one another while protecting the blade and holding everything together.
Reason #2 - Modularity. Any accessory that we make will mount on any product that we make. The spacing from the edge of the sheath to the rivets, and from them to the blade has a minimum value in order to accept any and every mounting accessory (To include Tek Lok, and Molle Lok). We don't believe that you should have to purchase a new sheath just because your needs might change given your mission or load-out (Same for holsters.). This holds true for civilians as well. Hiking or camping during different seasons, or in different environments, places different requirements on your systems, and as a result you, the user. Our sheath, holster, or carrier platform can accept any mounting accessory, anywhere along its edge. This takes a minute to really sink in. This means that every sheath, holster, or carrier can accept any mounting accessory, and the sky really is the limit. Sheath mounting accessories can be used on holsters and vice versa. Sheaths can be mounted right or left handed, strong or weak side, or inside the waistband for concealed carry. They can be mounted upright or inverted, or mounted laterally. Holster mounting accessories can be moved up or down, or inverted to adjust ride height in relation to belt line. This is all built into the sheath/holster/carrier design so that, if one day your needs to change, you can simply adjust an existing mount, or purchase the correct mount for that occasion, and use it on your sheath, or holster, or carrier, anywhere along its edge, not just the top. Everything is customizable and adjustable by you, the user, using a simple screwdriver.
