  • mag holder problem

    I've got a new Safariland double mag holder that's replacing an old, worn out one. However, the belt loop is so tight that I cannot get the belt through it to get it on the belt. I never had that problem with the old one, so I got another new one thinking it was a fluke and found the same thing; too tight to get on the belt. I realize it's new and stiff leather, but it's so new and stiff that I can't get the belt thru the loops. So here's my question: what can I do? My only thought was TRY to make small cuts in the leather in the corners of the belt loops so the belt can slide thru. However, this is thick leather, and making such small cuts with such a small area to work with will be difficult. Also, wouldn't cutting the belt loop lead to further tearing along the cuts in the future?

    Hopefully I'm describing all this well enough to where it's understandable. I just don't know what to do because I now have two mag holders that I can't get the belt thru. Is there an easier solution that I'm just being dumb and overlooking? Or even a more difficult one that will work better? Help please!

      Might try a hair dryer to heat up the mag pouch and stretch it out. Rubbing alcohol might also soften up the holder enough to slide it on the belt.
