    I maybe wrong (what a shock I know!!:whistling:) but are the clips supposed to be free to rotate or do you set them at a certain cant and then tighten them up to lock the angle in place?

    I have been letting them rotate around and the holster doesn't move much at all when I sit or stand but I would like a little more up and down cant or a slight (very slight) butt rearward cant for a little more comfort.

    I aslo left the clips sort of loose for re-acomodation on the fly. When I sit in the car, I need a different cant than when I sit in a regular chair, than when I'm walking. So I find myself constantly adjusting cant for comfort.

    Mine rotate freely, if you tighten them down by the end of the day they rotate freely again. I also put blue locktite on the screws as I has one fall out one day. I guess this is to be expected if you have screws at a pivot point like this. I still Love my MTAC and wouldn't hesitate to buy another.

    That is what I thought. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't doing it wrong.

    Some more weight to lose and it wont matter because there will be nothing to poke.

    I have a CTAC which uses the same clips (MTAC on the way, though) and I lost the screws several times before I put 'em in with Loctite. CompTac sent me a package of replacement screws when I inquired about what I considered to be a problem, but I ended up going to the local Ace Hardware and getting a couple of Phillips head stainless screws that I cut to the proper length. They have remained in place for about a year now, but if they ever do come loose during the day I can tighten 'em up with my Swiss Army knife and don't have to find a hex wrench.

    As for tight or loose, mine are tight, but the leather tabs on the CTAC are flexible enough that the clips can move a bit either way. I don't notice it changing the position of the holster, though.

    Mine are locked in and do not rotate, unless I twist it by hand. They don't work loose either. Having said that, I don't mash the rubber bushing in by turning the screws too far...it can break.
