    My comp-tac CTAC snapped on me a couple of days ago, the forward belt clip broke in two at the top. I've been trying to think of a good way to repair it without having to buy a new clip. I bought some 'industrial' strength epoxy at the store, but I don't think it's going to bond at all. I didn't think something like j.b. weld would either.

    So does anyone know any cements/epoxies that will bond kydex? Or am I going to have to order a whole new clip?

    I do not have an answer for you. I have one Kydex holster and have hardly used it. But I will speculate and say that once this stuff breaks, you may as well toss it and get a new one. Even if you find a cement that bonds it, it is going to be a liability, not knowing when this battlefield repair is going to give again.

    How old is it, and have you contacted the maker?

    I've been watching this post

    My first reaction when I read this post yesterday was use JB Weld and clamp it down overnight but ... a holster is something that you bet your life on, which certainly merits a new holster.

    And yeah, I agree with LAK ... contact the maker of the holster he might replace it for you at no cost.

    The above use thermo-formed kydex which is far superior to the injection molded stuff mass produced by Fobus and Uncle Mike ... might be worth a look.

    Wanted to let folks know that I have emailed comp-tac and they promptly replied that they would go ahead and mail me some replacement clips. Good on them! Nice to see simple customer service.
