Safariland Introduces the Vertical Universal Belt Loop (VUBL) for Efficient Holster Height Adjustment

Enables users to instantly adjust holster height while in the field without tools

ONTARIO, California – Safariland®, a brand of The Safariland Group, a leading global provider of safety and survivability products designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets, today introduced the adjustable Vertical Universal Belt Loop (VUBL). The VUBL is the first of its kind belt loop enabling users to raise or lower their duty holster to one of three height positions while the holster is on the belt. This new design offers instant adjustment, especially convenient when officers go from field to vehicle to desk.

“We developed the Vertical Universal Belt Loop in response to the need expressed by patrol officers to have the ability to raise and lower their holster in the field and with ease,” said James Dawson, category director, Safariland. “Comfort is the biggest challenge for officers when wearing a duty rig and getting in and out of patrol cars is a common occurrence for the need to adjust the ride height of the holster. The VUBL lets officers switch the height level almost instantly, allowing them to keep their gear intact.”

The VUBL passes the Safariland retention pull test and is compatible with Safariland’s Quick Locking System (QLS) and all Safariland three-hole pattern duty holsters. The VUBL offers three different heights, allowing adjustability , while the holster is threaded through the duty belt and without the need for tools. Designed for comfort, the VUBL will not pinch or add pressure to the hip bone.

The durable VUBL is made of Dupont™ Zytel® nylon. It slides on to equipment belts and is available for belt widths of 2” or 2.25”. Offered in Black, the VUBL may also be ordered in FDE, OD Green, Coyote Brown or Foliage Green with a minimum order of 1000 units. It will be available February 2019 at an MSRP of $48.00.

The VUBL will be on display at the 2019 SHOT (Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor and Trade) Show, January 22-25, booth #12762. For more information, please visit www.safariland.com/dutygear.
