In an earlier article I argued for the effective simplicity of the Cover6 Gear holster for a Walther PPS M2. Then I found a replacement clip to make the holster even better. The Ulticlip holster clip replaces the Cover6 standard belt clip (or any other similar holster clip) and allows me to attach — in a very secure way — the holster to my pants or belt. Moreover, because of the clip’s design, conceal-ability actually increases as well.
Installing the Ulticlip requires removing the screw holding the original clip and replacing it with the Ulticlip. Easy! Once installed, opening and closing the Ulticlip requires just a thumb and forefinger. The design of the steel acts like a spring to hold the clip down — against the waistline of your pants or your belt. And, if you clip it to your pants, your belt helps to hide the clip. The strength of the spring means the clip holds on with more force than a regular belt clip would offer. So security goes up, too.
One more conceal-ability note: since Ulticlip attaches at one point on a holster, you can tuck in a shirt over the holster but under the clip.
