We'd like to explain the differences in our inside the waistband (IWB) holsters when made for the appendix position versus the 3 o'clock position (aka "strong side"). While the holster shell itself is basically the same, the final configuration is a little different for the two carry positions.
For the appendix position, the holster is equipped with a concealment wing (aka "claw") as well as a rubber comfort puck on the back of the holster which is our version of an easily removable wedge. The concealment wing rotates the grip of the gun into your body for better concealment (less printing) by leveraging against the back of the belt. The wedge tilts the rear of the gun's slide in towards your body above the belt line for better concealment (less printing) and it also potentially reduces uncomfortable hotspots against your skin that might be caused by any irregular or abrupt edges of the holster itself.
Configured for Appendix Carry with a wing, a wedge, and a modified FOMI belt clip
For the 3 o'clock position, the holster does not come with a concealment wing or a wedge. There would be a lot more belt tension against the concealment wing at the 3 o'clock position and the increased pressure would likely cause the wing and/or the holster to crack and break. The wedge is simply unnecessary for the 3 o'clock position and would actually be very uncomfortable if it was installed on the holster.
Configured for 3 o'clock without a wing or wedge, and a standard FOMI belt clip mounted with a cant
Holsters made for weapon lights use a FOMI belt clip which can be adjusted for cant or ride height with the multiple mounting holes on the holster. Holsters that are made for no weapon light come with a polymer drop clip (pictured below) that is adjustable for ride height, but not for cant. A larger 1.75" polymer drop clip can be used with a 1.5" width belt to allow the gun to naturally cant when worn at the 3 o'clock position.
