OWB Quick Mount Straps (QMS)

4 Stars
Ships in 1-3 business days

Product Description

RCS is pleased to offer the original QMS (Quick Mount Straps).  These loops are designed to carry our holsters and other carriers in the same position as our standard OWB loops.  Rather than a stiff, rigid loop they are flexible and allow on/off use without unthreading your belt.

We are using the same high tech overmolded Kevlar webbing as our IWB soft loops and the same mil-spec Pull-the-Dot snaps and stainless steel hardware.  They are adjustable for 1.25", 1.5", and 1.75" belts.

The loops mount to the center or third-down eyelet.  Choose the hole in the loop that corresponds to your belt size.  Lay the loop against the inside face of the holster with the female snap sockets facing you on the long tail pointing down.  Install a post through the hole in the strap and secure it with a screw through the outside face of the holster.  Next, mount a male snap on the top top eyelet on the inside face of the holster.  The post will insert trough the outside face and mate with the screw through the center of the male snap.  Now mount the other male snap on the outside face of the holster in the second eyelet in the same way.

To mount them to your belt, start by releasing the buckle to give yourself some slack.  Thread the front/lead QMS up behind the belt.  Place the first female cap on the inside male snap and roll it up from the bottom to secure it.  Now roll the rest of the QMS over the top corner and secure it to the male snap on the outside face of the holster.  Now repeat with the rear/trail QMS, adjust the holster to the final position on the belt and tighten the belt.

With practice, mounting and removing the holster is just a little slower than with traditional Paddle-type holsters, but there is no way the holster can come with the weapon when drawn or come off during a fight.  The strap itself has a 500+ ft/lb. failure rating and extensive FoF testing has failed to cause the snaps to fail.  Easy on, easy off, and just as secure and concealable as fixed belt loops.  The best of both worlds.

Please note that the Pull-the-Dot snaps are "directional" snaps and will only snap or unsnap when pushed/pulled in the correct direction.  They can be very tight when you first recieve them.  It is a good idea to snap and unsnap them by hand a few times before using them.  If you have trouble unsnapping them, use a flat head screwdriver or similar tool.  Place the blade between the male and female snaps on the outside of the loop (where the dot is on the cap).  Twist and they will come apart easily.

Sold in pairs.

  1. Difficult to snap on and off 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Nov 2016

    I bought this product to be able to take my raven phantom holster on and off without opening my belt. The snaps are so difficult to secure that I have to open my belt to use the straps. There are no instructions on how to assemble the straps to the holster so I had to look on you tube. The holster fits secure and conseals well with the straps so it's not a complete bust.

  2. good overall product 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Nov 2016

    Installation is easy and all required hardware is included.
    The straps could offer more adjustment holes.
    My holster sits snug and doesn't move at all, however closing the snaps is not easy.
    Summary, I like the straps and will equip my other holsters as well.

  3. Best Easy On/Off Sytem I've Tried 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Nov 2016

    I prefer an easy on/off system to fixed loops for OWB carry. I have the quick mount straps on two Raven OWBs and prefer them to leather one-snap straps on several other holsters. I replaced the solid loops on one of my holsters with the quick mounts and it was a quick and easy task for the most part. I use a little lubricant on all one-way snaps to make the initial break-in a bit easier.

  4. Tricky at first 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Nov 2016

    Kinda tricky to figure out at first. Instructions are on Raven Concealments website. I like them so much I bought a second pair for my mag holder.

  5. Almost perfect product 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Jul 2016

    The Quick Release Straps for an outside the waistband holster are almost perfect. I say almost because the one way snaps are hard to snap together if trying to put the holster on once you already have your pants and belt on. It is not impossible but very difficult. However if removing the holster they are a breeze. They also secure the holster from accidentally coming off by only unsnapping one way.

  6. Great for On/Off Requirements of Holsters 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th May 2016

    This product is great to take holsters and mag pouches on and off with the snap buttons. I am transitioning all mine to this system. One drawback is how loose it is, but that is an adjustment thing.

  7. Raven Concealment Quick Mount Straps are awesome! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Feb 2016

    I have been struggling with how to EDC my H&K VP9 w/Surefire XC1 light . I tried the included OWB kydex loops, extended wing loops and IWB soft loops. The kydex loops were harder to don/doff and interfered with the free end of my EDC belt while the IWB soft loops made carry for extended periods uncomfortable. The Quick Mount Straps (QMS) offers the best combination of concealability, comfort and don/doff convenience. The QMS loops are now my prefered method for outside the waistband carry. Definitely a solid product!

  8. Great for scuba webbing belts 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Jan 2016

    Those of you who own a cobra buckled, scuba webbing belt know that they make life great for carry... once everything is set up at least. With these QMS straps, putting my holster on is MUCH faster. Great product overall.

  9. Exactly what I was hoping for 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jan 2016

    I normally carry my Raven holster IWB and was looking for a way to go OWB with one big condition. I had to be able to put it on and remove it with some discretion (not having to take my belt off) and that's something the standard belt loops weren't able to do.

    Thanks to these loops I got that what I wanted along with the quality I've come to expect from Raven.

  10. secure hold 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Dec 2015

    I ordered 3 sets of these, one for my everyday carry full size HK45, and one each for my AR mag holder and my double mag holder for my 45, and each item is held securely and tight against my body with no upward shift when drawing. It took a few tries to get the hang of using the snaps, but once I got the hang of it, it's no problem at all now. Since the standard included belt holders did not give me enough clearances I get the buckles using my new Ranger Ares Gear belt, I decided to give these a try and they are perfect in every aspect! RCS gratuitously took back the 1.5" belt mounts I ordered after ordering these new mounts, thank you for the always great service!
