This symbolizes "Maritime ready," because we supply these holster all over the world to both State Military, PMC, and other entities that require an "All Weather Holster."

Adjustable retention holsters such as the KT AKELA line or the Mechanized KT Gunfighter holsters will give you the ability to adjust the retention strength.

How to install a belt attachment to the KT AKELA holster: hardware install

 

KT AKELA holsters (adjustable retention)

adjustable retention

- Each KT AKELA holster will have an adjustable retention. The retention set screw forward towards the muzzle will affect the slide retention. The retention set screw closer to the trigger guard will affect the trigger guard retention.

- The KT AKELA holster employs a passive friction retention method which you can adjust to fit your needs. The Duty KT AKELA holster will be built native with a secondary active retention system (Mechanical hood and thumb switch release or the Thumb break). The Mechanical hood and thumb switch release is only available with the Duty KT AKELA holster.

- You can add the Thumb break feature to any holster by simply adding this feature to the shopping cart with your holster order.

Weapon light KT AKELA / Duty KT AKELA holsters (Weapon light compatible)

- In the holsters page, the Duty KT AKELA holster and the Weapon light compatible KT AKELA holsters are available with a weapon light attached. You can select the weapon light with the Duty KT AKELA holster from the "VARIANT" drop down menu. You can select the weapon light with the Weapon light compatible KT AKELA holster from the "WEAPON LIGHT" drop down menu.

- The weapon lights available to each handgun model may differ because some fits most but not all (i.e. a full size weapon light may not fit a compact handgun, therefore it is not an available option).

- Each weapon light attaches to the handgun, typically via an accessory rail. These accessory rails typically come in two most common formats, the Military Standard M1913 rail dimension (i.e. 1911, CZ, FN, HK, S&W, Sig Sauer, Walther, etc...), and the Weaver or Glock rail dimension (i.e. Glock, Springfield, etc...).

- Each weapon light manufacturer may have a different method of attaching to the rail. Most light manufacturers provide a set of rail keys that lock onto the accessory rail, typically to fit either the M1913 or Glock rail dimension. If you're not sure of which rail key to use on your handgun and weapon light combination, just contact us and we'll provide you with the optimal setup to ensure a good fit with the holster, email: contact@kt-mech.com

- If you modify your weapon light's attachment method outside of the manufacturer's suggested usage, we may not be able to build a holster for you because it would be very unlikely for us to exactly duplicate your personal craftsmanship, thereby we cannot guarantee a good fit.

- KT AKELA holsters are ideal for OWB open carry and/or Duty use. The wide range of available attachments allow you to fully customize your carry method.

- The KT AKELA holsters mounts are located close to the center of gravity for the best possible balance for this holster configuration. The mounts being located close to the center allows the holster to ride higher, ideal for in vehicle use.

Compatible with BLACKHAWK!, Blade-Tech, RTI for Safariland, and Safariland attachments

- If you have your heart set on using a specific manufacturer's attachment, such as the adjustable cant BLACKHAWK! paddle or the Law Enforcement standard Safariland mounts, the KT AKELA holster is compatible. Regarding the RTI mount; if you get the RTI for Safariland holsters, then it is also compatible with the KT AKELA holster. No special tools required, we give you the most ubiquitous possible fastener available on the planet, the Phillips head screw.

The KT AKELA line of holsters does not have captured binding posts to allow you to configure the bolt pattern to fit the BLACKHAWK!, Blade-Tech, and Safariland bolt patterns.

As stated on the notice which are included with your holster, please "Do not over tighten the screws." Over tightening the mounting screws may cause the binding post, screws, and/or the holster material and attachments to fail. To achieve the recommended torque, simply place one finger behind the binding post while you tighten the screw. Once the binding post starts to spin or locks, that is it. The rubber spacers a engineered to provide a shock absorbing function, similar to a car's suspension system, to prevent and minimize damage to the frame. Once you find your preferred configuration, you may apply a small amount of thread locker (blue or non-permanent) to the threads.

Single Thermoplastic sheet construction

- The Single Thermoplastic construction of the KT AKELA holster give you the benefits of having a light weight frame with the solid rigidity of a unit body construction. The design also allows the use of a fully adjustable passive retention system, that can be built with a secondary level 2 retention.
