Mako Group Announces Three New Innovative Gun Holster Features

FARMINGDALE, NY –-( The Mako Group, the exclusive North American marketer of Front Line holsters from Israel under the Mako Group’s name, announces three new innovative holster features.

A low ride plate for adjusting the height and angle of a holster and attaching the holster to a belt.

A Head Lock™ (HDL) retention system that offers Level II retention via a natural fluid dual thumb motion.

And a novel tactical plate which allows either a holster and two tactical accessories or three tactical accessories to be attached to it, thereby increasing a tactical holster’s functionality.

The Low Ride Plate provides five height level options, anywhere from belt height to a mid-ride height to a low-ride position. This allows the holster to be positioned at the most comfortable height for each person. In addition, the low ride plate contains an “I-rail” which allows the holster to be adjusted vertically or on an angle and either backwards or forwards.

A small hole at the top of the low ride plate enables a security lanyard to be connected for extra safety. In addition two inserts are included with the low ride plate so the holster can fit tightly with either a 1.25” or 1.5” or 2” wide belt.

The Head Lock™ (HDL) gun retention system offers a new type of upgraded Level II gun locking system via a naturally fluid dual thumb motion. The dual thumb motion consists of first pushing the head cover forward and then pushing down on the lock button, causing the locking bridge to spring forward. This releases the gun for a smooth and efficient draw. In addition, there are two adjustable tension screws which allow the holster’s tension to be adjusted.

The tactical plate allows either a handgun and two tactical gear accessories or three tactical gear accessories to be connected to it, either vertically or at angled draw, similar to a low ride plate. The tactical plate is designed for a tactical holster whereas the low ride plate is designed for a standard belt holster. In addition, an “I-rail” offers five holster height options.

Two models, both with double leg straps that secure the tactical plate to one’s leg, are available:

  • TP1000 – a standard plate with an adjustable strap that connects to a belt.
  • TPQ1010 – a tactical plate with a detachable strap for quick release.
    • To convert a tactical holster to a standard belt holster, a belt-loop component can be purchased separately.

“We are very excited about our new holster features, which provide handgun users the best technology available today at an affordable price,” says Shay Granov, The Mako Group’s Vice President Business Development. “By adding these innovative features like the height and angle adjustment, we can now offer our customers innovative holster personal customization capabilities as well as increased handgun safety.”
