Adjustable Connector Similar to Tek Lok?

    One of my fixed blade knives came with a sheath that has an adjustable connector that can be adjusted to different angles of carry. That is to say, I can carry the sheath either vertically or horizontally - but I can also select other settings, for example 45-degree angle, not just 0-degree or 90-degree.

    I like to carry horizontally, but for some sheaths, I am a little concerned about retention at 90-degrees. If I could adjust the angle a little higher, without going all the way to vertical, that would be ideal.

    Are there any "universal" attachments similar to Tek Loks that allow adjustable angles such as this? Or in general, what alternatives to Tek Loks are available?

    Thanks in advance for your input.

    Tek-loks work at 45° as well if the sheath has the proper hole spacing...I always build my sheaths with spacing for both (0/90 & 45):)

    Thanks Chip! I thought about that, and while I do have one knife that might work at an angle with a Tek Lok, the ones that I want to change to 45-degrees will not. :(

    If I understand the OP correctly, you should be able to use the G-Clip. It has plenty of holes making a cant possible.
    I have Tek-Loks in different sizes but far prefer the G-Clip.

    G-Clip
    https://www.knifecenter.com/item/SPGCLIP/spyderco-g-clip-sheath-mount

    Should work wel. As others have mentioned, it of course depends on the hole spacing on the sheath.

    A versatile sheath mount clip that provides a wide variety of carry options. A standard feature of Spyderco fixed-blade knife sheaths, it is also popular aftermarket accessory for other sheaths and is the mounting hardware of choice for many custom makers. The G-Clip attaches to a sheath with two stainless steel Chicago screw sets and two rubber washers using a T-10 Torx wrench (not included). The clip features multiple mounting holes that can be set for vertical (handle up or handle down), horizontal, forward, and backward cants. It fits belts up to 1.5 inches wide and also functions as a spring clip for direct attachment to pockets and clothing. The G-Clip attaches to either side of Spyderco sheaths, allowing them to be easily configured for inside-the-waistband carry and either edge-forward or edge-back orientation.

    I’m going to try the Ulticlip XL on my Kydex pancake sheath that came with my Bradford 4.5 Gardian, thanks for the tip.
