Yesterday I went to hospital for a couple of hernia's repairing, and as I'm always on the look out for ways to repair my VAM equipment I noticed the hospital wrist bands have a great fastening system that can be adapted into ideal pistol holster nubs see what you think

My White feather and SAS figures with nubless holsters Sad

Above is my medical allergy band showing the fastening and removed stud fastener

Sideways view on white stud fastener, as you can see Ideal for a replacement nub Smile

Above showing the tools I used = electricians wire cutters and Stanley type craft knife

Firstly using the electricians wire cutters cut the outer plastic clip as deep as you can as shown above

Then cut the rest of the way through this ring this process can be repeated on top position and outer ring should be able to be separated from stud

Once outer ring is removed the red plastic band can be released from the stud

This should all separate and stud can be pulled free

Stud is now free and can be applied to pistol holster

Here's the new nub in place  Arrow  Very Happy

As a little extra just added a nice bit of yellow plastic cord to white feather's holster from a set of kids Skooby fashion strings I got from Boyes store here in Northallerton for the bargain price of 99p
