I re-thought the drop down dangler.
Leather was nice but still a pain to work with and bio-degradable.
So since I have worked with this rubber for making my hawk and exposed spine sheath straps for years I did a little thinking and this is what I came up with.
1st the rubber is actually boiler gasket material
a very tough nylon mesh over-molded with rubber.
Some of the straps on my hawk sheaths have been over seas for several summers with some troops and no problem.
I re-enforce the bolt holes with the same black oxide brass eyelets we all use to hold kydex sheaths together.
The kydex mounting piece is made from .125" or 1/8" kydex and re-enforced again with eyelets
It is made to be reversible and set up for RH or LH carry.
You can also flip it end over end to adjust the height of carry.
with the three holes you can move the drop down over one hole and more center the drop down
Best part is you can put this on any of my sheaths set up for a large tek-lok
So what do you think ?
