Frequently Asked Car Holster Questions

Q. How does this holster attach to my seat?

A. This easy installation process requires zero drilling or mounting hardware. To equip your vehicle with the Driver Defense Holster, simply thread the adjustable straps through the opening between your seat and seatback, then buckle the straps together underneath your seat.

For detailed installation instructions, we include a comprehensive user guide with each order.


Q. Will the Driver Defense Holster work with my gun?

A. For a complete list of compatible gun models, check out our "Search by Gun" page. If your gun is not currently available for the ShapeShift Modular Holster System, the Cloak Mod OWB Holster is available for over 500 firearms, which can attach it to the Cloak Mod Car Adapter.


Q. What’s the difference between this holster and the ShapeShift Holster Mount?

A. The Driver Defense Holster is specifically designed to strap securely to your seat, while the ShapeShift Holster Mount attaches to a variety of surfaces including plastic, wood, sheet metal and drywall. Choosing between the two comes down to the location you’d like to secure your handgun.

The Driver Defense Holster is also a less permanent way to secure your firearm in your vehicle. You can remove the entire unit by unbuckling the straps and pulling them through your seat.


Q. Will this holster fit my car’s seat?

A. With its adjustable design, the Driver Defense Holster should accommodate most vehicle seats as long as there is a slot between the top and bottom section of the seat. We have provided a pair of 6’ nylon straps to accommodate most seat sizes and styles.

If this holster does not fit your seat, sent it back within the first 30 days for a hassle-free refund.


Q. What do you mean when you say this will work with most car seats?

A. Most vehicle seats have an opening where the back rest meets the seat and an opening underneath the seat. The design of the Driver Defense Holster was based off this design, but there are just too many seat models to say that our holster fits them all.


Q. Does this holster work with office chairs?

A. With its adjustable design, the ShapeShift Driver Defense Holster is compatible with more than just vehicle seats. As long as there is a slot between the top and bottom portion of your seat and room to thread straps underneath, you should be able to equip this holster to a variety of seats.


Q. Is this holster compatible with the Cloak Series?

A. Yes! We offer a car adapter for the Cloak Mod OWB Holster.


Q. Is this holster covered by a warranty?

A. You bet. The Driver Defense is fully backed by our 30-day test drive and Forever Warranty.


ShapeShift Driver Defense Expansion Pack

Q. Does this work with my Shift Shell?

Q. Will this expansion pack fit my seat?

A. Great question! We’ve designed this product with 6’ adjustable straps, so it should fit most vehicle seats and office chairs. The straps will need to go through the slot between the upper and lower part of your seat, so be sure to check that your seat has this slot before ordering your expansion pack.

Q. Can I send it back if it’s not the right fit?

A. You sure can! If this expansion pack does not work with your seat, send it back within the first 30 days for a refund.
