Cheap repair for missing holster nubs using chain bait stoppers:-

I was getting tired of all my pistol holsters missing the plastic nubs for fastening the cover flap down so started to look for an alternative, I have come up with this little cheap way to do the job, thought others may find it useful.
I found these chain bait stoppers in my fishing bag, they are used to stop pellet and boilie baits from falling off fishing lines, they work fantastic as replacement nubs, see the photo's and let me know what you think

PS the ones pictured can be purchased from Boyes at 50p a pack of 10 strips so really nice and cheap

I have had success using part of the popper from a scrap uniform to form a nub on a holster, it was just glued to the inside of body of the holster.

When I next get to York I will have a look in Boyes for those chain bait stoppers.

Good idea with the press stud popper cheers 

Idea  Another tip when looking for the chain bait stoppers, check the packs for larger beads as the sizes do vary as you can see in the pictures and the smaller beads arn't much cop, also I use a pair of nail clippers to cut off 2 beads for each nub, we have a Boyes in Northallerton if your anywhere near

Thanks for the intrest maybe if you look at your local fishing tackle shops you may find better types of these chain bait stoppers preferably a little bit bigger would be great cheers
