Mounting Holsters Safely in Vehicles

Postby texascustomholsters » Tue, 29 Nov 2016 20:57:57

I want to get input from forum members on what you consider a safe mounting solution for securing a holster inside your vehicle. The mounting options I have seen are Screws, Velcro, and Straps.
Have any of you have used Velcro or Straps to mount to the console or under the steering column? I’m in Texas where it gets very hot in my truck so I’m afraid the Velcro will not work, and I have only seen the Strap solution for under the steering column, buy I’m not sure how secure that would be.
Personally I prefer the Screw option for safety, but I would like to hear back about what you think and have used.

Thanks,

I like pop-rivets for that kind of thing, though I haven't worked with holsters.

Check out Alien Gear Holsters. They have a mounting system that you can slip their carry holster in and it secures really well, I've had mine for two years and never had a problem

I have a strap on holster under my steering column........Its a pain to get tight, but once its tight it holds good.........my big problem is I keep forgetting its there when I get out. I'm so used to using my iwb holster.

I just bolted this in with a small nut and bolt through the holster clip and the dash panel. It works really well... but I started using my center console instead. Cops get really nervous if you get pulled over and they walk up to your car to find a hand gun so easily accessible.

If I were to redo it, I would use a stage 2 or 3 plastic retention holster instead.
