Can I use the Metal Clip without the screws?
NO – Doing so can be dangerous. The Insert Screws provide over 600 pounds of additional attachment strength and must be used for secure attachment. Do Not attempt to use the Clip without the use of Insert Screws. Use of the strapping system is also required to completely secure your weapon.
Do I need to remove the clip from the Weaponholder to replace Clip Covers?
No. Hold the Weaponholder with one hand to secure it and pull the worn clip cover off with your free hand. If you are having difficulty removing the cover by pulling it off, carefully use the tip of a knife in the air hole at the top of the cover. Be careful not to scratch the powder coating on the clip. To replace the Clip Cover, wet the inside of the Cover and slide it onto the Clip Arm. Do not worry about using too much water, the clip is powder coated and the water will evaporate.
If I lose the clip screws or hex wrench, can I get replacements
Yes. Part # IS-.375 replaces both the wrench and screws.
