The Luminator™ is also available in a low-ride version which is a 1.5” drop from a standard ride designed for female officers and others that require a low-ride holster.

Safariland® Introduces the “Automatic Locking System”

Safariland introduces two new concealment paddle holster offerings – the Model 6358 and Model 6368 w/ SLS - both with their all-new Automatic Locking System (ALS™). With the ALS system, once the weapon is holstered, it “locks” into place providing additional security from typical open top holsters. The device is completely operable with the thumb, making it very instinctive to use. Plus, once the retention device is released, the weapon can be drawn straight out of the holster with no twisting or other motion required.

While both models utilize Safariland’s time-tested Self Locking System (SLS), there is one key addition: the ALS™ internal locking device that retains the weapon in all directions when the primary device is open, providing Level II Plus Retention™, which can also be elevated to Level III Plus Retention™ with the addition of the Sentry.
