How to reholster safely and easily
Practice reholstering with an unloaded gun until you get a feel for the correct alignment and technique.
Because the Floodlight2 is a “universal” fit holster that accommodates a variety of guns, it requires a specific reholstering technique for best results. DO NOT attempt to reholster by fishing the muzzle of your gun into the top of the holster.
Begin by indexing the light above the light channel. Then, slowly rock the gun into the holster. You can see this technique in the Quick Start video above. Using this technique allows the light, which is usually the widest part, to push the two halves of the holster open for easy insertion.
Having trouble? First check to see if your gun has any parts that may protrude further than normal, such as aftermarket frames, slide stops, gas pedals, or aggressive slide serrations. The Floodlight2 fits most duty sized guns, but not all, and it does not accommodate all accessories.
If the above steps don’t resolve your problem, please contact customer support, and we’d be happy to help with troubleshooting or returns.
