The Life Cycle of a Belt Clip

      During our ventures throughout the forums we have come across a few potential customers asking if we have any alternative to our belt attachments. They were wary of Kydex loops and clips, because some they had previously owned had broken.

      I have to say, I have never encountered this problem in a single holster we have produced. Our clips are made from scratch using .093" Boltaron/Holstex as opposed to the weak .080 alternative. We have a precise regime that we follow to ensure the highest quality belt attachments on the market. We do not sell injection mold clips or loops that come from a do-it-yourself kit, as they will never be as strong as a Dara Holster belt attachment.

     Each of the stages you see above are done by hand and by only one person to ensure quality work. All of our belt attachments are guaranteed for life with a no B.S. warranty. However, in our two years of business we have never had a complaint about the quality or durability of any of our products.

Jeep Owner Gets Last Laugh on Corvette Driver's Greedy Parking Job

Jeep Owner Gets Last Laugh on Corvette Driver's Greedy Parking Job (ABC News)

Nice parking job, pal.

A New Jersey man got the last laugh on a Corvette driver who greedily took up two parking spots outside a Red Robin restaurant.

Instead of parking in the back of the crowded parking lot, Kyle DeMattia, 20, pulled his mud-covered Jeep partially onto the sidewalk, with the other part of his vehicle sharing a space with the sports car.
"The parking lot was packed except for a few spaces at the back and I could see people parking and walking by it in just plain annoyance," DeMattia told NJ Advance Media.

DeMattia scored a spot by the window and videotaped the Corvette driver's reaction, which has since garnered more than 1 million views on YouTube.

After the Corvette owner left, DeMattia said he was happy to move his Jeep and park it the way parking spaces are meant to be used.
