Accessories for the ShapeShift Modular Holster System

The ShapeShift modular holster isn't one holster with many names. It's a cohesive system of compatible carry styles that blurs the lines between open and concealed carry depending on user preference, carry style and lifestyle.

But, specialized parts, clips, mounts and separate Shift Shells can amplify your everyday carry experience with a personalized EDC setup.

That's what the ShapeShift was made (in America) for: customized carry.

The ShapeShift holster's heart is the Shift Shell, a nigh-indestructible storage mechanism that encapsulates the firearm. A durable polymer compound is precisely injection-molded to the contours of handguns through complex tooling and machining.

That polymer is comparable to the stuff handgun manufacturers use in modern striker fired semi-automatics. It is heat and abrasion resistant, and will maintain its structural integrity throughout the lifetime of its use.

A new Shift Shell will be required if you'd like to carry different handgun models on the same backer.

Your Shift Shell will come with:

  • 1 — Full Shift Holster Shell
  • 1 — Adjustable Retention Unit
  • 1 — Rotating Adapter
  • 1 — Trigger Guard
  • 3 — Twist Locks
  • 1 — ½ Flat Head Screws
  • 2 — 3/8” Flat Head Screws
  • 4 — Narrow Hex Nuts

The adjustable retention unit gives you the ability to alter the passive retention tighter or looser with one of the included twist locks. The rotating adapter is included to make the shell compatible with some of the open carry configurations, like the OWB paddle holster, and with the holster mount.

Spare holster mounts are offered for safe, off-the-body storage in a secure location. They're installed on compatible surfaces like wood, drywall, plastic and sheet metal. All required tools and drill bits are included, as well as a guide for installation.

The holster mount offers a 360-degree cant in 12 degree increments.

Why buy a holster mount? Well, our intention is to allow a holstered handgun to be removed from the waistline to a temporary, secure location like an office desk, all the while held secure in the Shift Shell.

Installation is simple. Attaching the Shift Shell to it is straightforward. With it, handgun storage is a smooth, intuitive process.

How the holster is fixed to the belt is another matter of importance. Clips attaching the holster to the belt come in different forms.

C clips offer more concealment by attaching on the top and bottom of the belt. J clips attach only at the bottom of the belt, increasing concealment. Injection-molded polymer O clips are an modernized version of the classic leather loops that have historically held a holster to a belt, but have worn down over time.

Additional standard, injection-molded polymer ShapeShift holster clips are offered as well.
