Modified FOMI Belt Clip for AIWB Holsters

We use the authentic USA made FOMI belt clips (Fold Over Mold Injected) as a standard belt clip on all of our weapon light IWB holsters. These belt clips are very durable (made of Nylon 66) and are very convenient for putting the holster on or taking it off the belt. The only problem with these clips when used in the appendix carry position is that the large reverse tab at the bottom of the clip that makes them so easy on/off can sometimes get bumped against something and inadvertently get dislodged from the belt, or loose clothing can occasionally get snagged under the tab which may impede accessing the gun quickly in a high stress situation. We modify the FOMI belt clip for our appendix carry (AIWB) holsters to address these issues.  This trimmed down version of the clip makes it more secure on the belt, virtually eliminates the chance of clothing getting snagged under the end of the clip, and it reduces the overall bulk of the clip for less printing under clothing. The caveat is that it makes getting the clip on and off the belt a little less easy, but we think it's worth the extra security and peace of mind. We use the standard un-modified version of the FOMI belt clip mounted at a 10 to 15 degree angle on our strong-side holsters since it is not as easy to access in that position.
