What Is a Spider Holster And How Does It Work?
A Spider Holster was developed to make it easier for a pistol owner to transport their handgun in an automobile and avoid the potential of leaving the weapon laying around the vehicle or on a counter. The Holster is designed so that the firearm can be holstered in a completely enclosed case. When using the accessory plate, the Holster attaches to the bottom of the belt by way of a magnetic field. Once secured, the attachment of the attachment plate shifts to hold the pistol at the appropriate angle to ensure easy access.
An additional advantage of utilizing the Spider Holster is its ability to work as a rapid strap. Rather than utilize traditional fastening methods such as snaps or Velcro hooks, the attachment of the plate shifts through a series of gears allowing for quick attachment of a firearm. The quick-attachment feature is ideal when the Holster will be utilized for quick self-defense scenarios. In fact, the fast-attachment feature makes the Spider Holster extremely popular among security personnel. Its ease of attachment to a secure belt allows quick deployment in times of stress.
The use of the Spider Holster as a rapid strap is ideal for situations when there is no access to a belt holder. When traveling by automobile, the use of the accessory plate allows quick deployment and fast reattachment to a belt. The holster attached to the belt can then be attached to the vehicle seat belt or vehicle hitch. Additionally, if one were to travel by airplane the quick-attachment system would allow for easy access to the holster even while the person is sitting in the seating arrangement. This type of access is also advantageous when the Holster is used as a carry over style accessory. The holster attached to the belt then folds into place over the top of the travel case when the traveler arrives at their destination.
Although many people use their Spider Holster in conjunction with a traditional belt clip, there are other situations where this accessory is not desirable. For example, the attachment of a Spider Holster to a backpack is inconvenient. When a backpack is stashed on a vehicle seat, it may cause discomfort for people carrying oversized items. In addition, carrying a backpack around with an attached holster belt can cause difficulty for people trying to access their keys or cell phones. The advantage of the attachment of the Spider Holster to the backpack is that it provides a second option for fast and convenient access to items.
Another popular application of the Spider Holster is for a person who wants to have an upper body workout. Since the holster quickly attaches to the user's upper body, the user can easily move around and perform multiple exercises in an effort to lose weight. The ease of movement and the secure fit allow for an individual to perform multiple workouts in a short period of time. Although the Holster does provide adequate room for a person to move around, most of them include a wide belt loop that allows for easy transport and storage. The large size of the loop also limits the amount of movement that occurs in the area.
In addition, the use of the Spider Pro Holster by professional photographers has increased. Many professionals will often travel with a tripod and want to be sure that they always have access to it when they are working. By using the Spider Holster, the photographer is able to quickly secure their tripod to the side of their vehicle so that they do not have to worry about losing their tripod while driving. For people who enjoy taking pictures from a distance, this type of accessory serves its purpose perfectly for many people.
For consumers, the Spider Holster proves to be a valuable accessory. In many instances, the holster is used to carry other items that attach securely to the user's belt such as sunglasses or flashlights. The quick clip on design of the holster makes it simple to use and wear. In addition, the use of the locking mechanism allows for quick and secure attachment to the user's belt or other accessory equipment. The ease of use and quick attachment make the Spider Holster an excellent accessory for individuals who are frequently on the road.
In addition to the Spider Holster, there are a number of other accessory items available from Great Plains and Luthier. For example, they offer a belt clip that attaches to the waist belt or the traditional strap of a large belt. Other items include a key chain organizer and a magnetic keypad. In addition, Luthier also offers a Spider Pro Cantilever, which is similar to the cantilever that secures most cameras on a tripod. These attachments ensure that the user is able to carry their equipment safely and securely while out in nature. Additionally, these accessories make it easier to carry and protect one's camera or other accessories while traveling.
