-The taper at the ends of the clip allow the user to use a 1.5 to 2" belt without any holster slop. The bottom (towards person) side is exactly 1.5 inches across so that the holster will not have any wiggle room when using a 1.5 inch belt. The taper lets up to a 2" belt pass through the loop, and when it is tightened, the belt will nestle into the bottom (1.5" wide) portion of the clip and curve up the tapered sides.
Double mounting holes:
-There are 2 pairs of 1/4 inch mounting holes on the bottom of the clip. The outside holes to opposite inside holes are 3/4 inch on center. The outside holes are 1 inch on center. This hole configuration allows the user to use the loop on either the right or left side of the holster using either the 3/4 inch or 1 inch spacing, and have the same height measurement whether being used right side or left. This also gives the 3/4 inch on center users multiple mounting options within the clip for depth or cant adjustment.
1/4" hexagon Bit-Fit™ holes:
-There is a 1/4 inch hexagon hole centered over each pair of mounting holes. The hexagonal shape of this hole allows the user to slide a slotted 1/4" bit through it which engages the slotted post nut or slotted screw in either of the mounting holes. The bit stays in place with light pressure, without spinning, while the fastener can be tightened from the other end. This makes installing the loops to your holster much easier, and the fasteners can be tightened down further.
