ALS Nub Mod

Your Price: $25.95
Product Options
Left or Right Hand:


The reversed angle matches up with the pad of your thumb sooner than the factory button. You will find the gun in your hand just by grabbing it.  Weak side draw becomes much faster as well. 

More Reliable:

The wider release button means you have even less potential to miss the activation, especially on thigh rigs or mounting systems that push the holster away from your body. 

If you have ever found yourself  pulling up on the gun before hitting the release you've noticed that gun is difficult to almost impossible to get out. The additional leverage of the Nub Mod fixes this stress induced or poor training problem if it ever arises due to the increased surface area for the thumb to engage. 


Many find the button too small and glue or plastic weld onto the button to make it larger. This has the potential to make the typical homemade button get pushed over into the body of the holster rendering it inoperable. 

The machined aluminum piece is indexed in part by the outside edge of the factory button. It will not come over the edge of the holster. It is bead blasted then hard anodized.  

Simple Install:

Simply press the larger nub piece over the factory button from the inside of the holster.  Align the smaller narrow piece with the top of the larger one. Insert screw and tighten with supplied allen wrench.  You may add Loc Tite or finger nail polish to the threads if desired.  See notes at base of page on fit. 

Holster types and fit:

The Nub Mod will not work with the Safariland ALS Guard.  It will work with the ALS Hood only. 

The Nub Mod will not work with the 1911 ALS holsters, the portion of the holster that protects the safety inhibits the Nub Mod install. For 1911 ALS Holsters, use this Nub Mod.

The older style ALS holsters that have the 'step' into the holster body  will require a fair amount of filing to get the fit right.

For a Nub Mod made to work with the SLS Hood and Level III Holsters, click here.

It will not work with the SLS without some modification to the holster and/or nub.  If you were to modify your holster slightly to increase the standoff space it would still be a tight fit, tight enough that your draw would be signicantly slowed down if putting down the SLS hood then activating the Nub Mod/ALS. Leaving the SLS hood down would result in the same benefits as the ALS only.  Do so at your own risk.  I do not recommend it! A dedicated SLS version is in the works. Should be out no later then October  2015.
