The Modular Holster Adapter was specifically designed to eliminate the unwanted movement, flex and sliding common to factory polymer belt adapters. The Modular Holster Adapter is made from rugged, non-ferrous DFARS grade 6061-T6 aluminum and is Type 3 MIL-SPEC hard coat anodized.

It supports the popular “Mid-ride” mode of carry to lower the pistol below the shooters belt line, allowing their holster system to clear body armor and pouches. This adapter fits all “three hole” pattern Safariland™ type holsters, and other brands of holster that use this proven method of attachment. It also supports the use of many commonly used quick detach holster systems such as the QLS, MLS, ELS,  and others. Holsters mounted to the Modular Holster Adapter will accommodate 10° of forward cant and 10° of negative cant for a total range of 20° degrees. The adapter holds three height mounting points, set 1/2″ apart, descending from the top mid-ride mounting point. This allows the user to custom configure their holster’s cant and height based off personal preference and body size/type. 

Rigidity is key:

The adapter includes two belt mounting bars which are sized and spaced for use on MOLLE type battle belts, by threading each bar through the belts PALS webbing. This application works extremely well on the current narrow, minimalist type battle belts used throughout SOCOM and other communities, such as those belts from GBRS Group, Blue Force Gear, AXL, Ronin and Tyr Tactical.  Alternatively, these mounting bars can also be directly bolted onto any standard trouser belt or gun belt up to 2 ¼”wide. When properly installed on your gun belt, the adapter will not move. All unwanted movement, slipping and sliding of the holster system has been removed from your system by adding a MHA. The Modular Holster Adapter also includes top mounting points for using a wide array of popular quick release belt mounts such as the Tek-Lok™ and polymer MOLLE type  hardware, such as the MALICE clip. Each Modular Holster Adapter comes with a complete hardware kit of various sized screws, posts, spacers and threadlocker for mounting. Note: Please confirm placement of your holster and location on your belt, and once satisfied with the configuration, USE THE INCLUDED THREADLOCKER on all screws to ensure everything stays put. Extended travel in aircraft produces vibration known to back out screws on weapons, the MHA is no different. USE THE INCLUDED THREADLOCKER, especially if you are in the profession of arms.

The adapter is available in Black, Dark Earth, and Olive Drab green anodized finishes. Because anodizing color/shade varies batch to batch, it is impossible to color match to other manufacturers accessories.

This product holds a lifetime, “No questions asked” free replacement guarantee.

    So this is the best modular holster adapter currently on the market. It will host pretty much every system available. I was hesitant at first thinking it would dig into my thigh but it did not and you don't even know it's there

    Extremely versatile and much more comfortable than safariland’s mid and low drop belt adapters

    Upgraded to this adapter to reduce the FBI cant on my Safariland holster. Love this adapter and the adjustment it offers. If there is one complaint is it is a little pricey.

    This is simply an all around necessary product . If you’re running a tactical belt it lessens the amount of real estate that’s touching your body and obviously significantly more durable than plastic/polymer

    Almost there, but not quite.

    The mount is good, but the instructions aren’t great. Can’t get the holster to can’t straight up and down, but it is very close. Like I said, almost great, but not quite there yet!!!
