Changing the Way Customers Appendix Carry
New Appendix Clips Offer Adjustable Ride Height

Oct. 1, 2016 (Pittsburgh, PA) – Here at Alpha Concealment Systems, we're big believers that there's always room for improvement. That's why we've recently made a change in the appendix clips we use on several of our holsters. 

Found on our Apollo IWB, Minotaur Half-Breed IWB, Centaur Light-Bearing IWB as well as our Cyclopes Light-Bearing IWB, our appendix clips are a great option for customers who need to tuck their shirt in while appendix carrying - the clip is tuckable. Made of a durable polymer, the appendix clips previously did not allow for adjustable ride height - that's something we're changing as of today.

Depending on the size of the handgun, all appendix clips will now come predrilled with three or four holes, as opposed to one or two, giving the user the ability to change the position at which the clip is attached. This allows the user to achieve either a deeper or higher ride height than normal, which is something many customers had expressed a need for.

"This change will make a major difference for many customers," said Alpha Concealment Systems' CEO/Founder, Anthony Tomacchio. "It's something we've been asked to do time and time again, and finally were able to make it work. I think it's going to be a great change."
