This device really makes the IWB holster stay close to the body, all my Vedder Holsters have this addition. Very comfortable even with all steel full size guns. Highly recommended
Vedder's custom engineered claw attachment is a great addition to your standard LightTuck holster! Features include:
For instructions on how to specifically attach the claw to your existing LightTuck, you can visit our website for a video tutorial at www.VedderHolsters.com/clawinstall
Please note that due to the wide range of adjustability of the LightTuck holster, the claw may not be ideal in all carry positions/angles. If you prefer to carry your LightTuck in the deepest setting or with a strong degree of reverse cant, the claw may not make the necessary contact with your belt to be effective.
Exclusion List (Claw is not compatible with the following LightTuck models)

Since Vedder doesn't make a VP9-B holster, I bought one of their claw attachments and added it to my Cook's Holster. Worked like a charm!
Great addition to a great holster!
I own 4 Vedder IWB holsters. The 3rd one I bought without the claw. Big mistake. It is a must have option for ultimate concealment. The add on was also very easy to install on your own.Now, I have 4 different carry options.
WOW - what a difference! I am sold on this modification. Have had the Light Tuck for a year now...just installed the claw kit. Love how it snugs it in to reduce the print and just seems to ride better.
This is a great attachment, very sturdy and well designed. It is easy to install and, when aligned to the clip, it works as a charm. My only trouble with it is that I regularly use the clip in the higher position, which does not align well with the claw and makes it have very little contact with the belt. I made a compromise and switched the clip to the intermediate position so to have a better adjustment with the claw and not have the gun too high in my waist
Very easy to install. Definitely does exactly what it is supposed to do. Really helps to conceal and reduces printing. Even in T-shirts
Easy to install yourself and works perfect to hide the grip of gun.
This was very easy to install and it definitely improved the concealment of my firearm. Great product!
I bought a claw to install on one of my existing Vedder light tuck holsters. Installation was very simple, and I completed the upgrade in about 5 minutes. The claw really does reduce printing. I'll be ordering all of my future holsters with the claw attachment.
The clothes and easy addition to a LAG tactical holster I already had. Instructions were easy to follow and took about five minutes to install the claw. Highly recommend.
Recently purchased a Lighttuck and loved it but wanted to be able to conceal the grip of my Glock 19 better under a t-shirt for summer carry so I ordered the Claw. The good: it absolutely makes the grip of the gun more concealable, noticeably better than my Bravo Torsion 3.0 with the bonus of being able to get deeper concealment from the Lighttuck. The not so good: make sure you drill the hole in the correct spot to get it aligned with the holster. I thought I had marked my hole correctly but the claw does move so to do it again I would have drilled it so the Claw canted slightly away from the trigger guard because mine tilts in toward the trigger guard. Still works but could be a bit better had I known that it was going to move so much . Also would love to see a Claw that was maybe 1/4"-3/8" longer because that would in no way interfere with my trigger. Heck, offer one that is 1/2" longer that can be fitted by cutting, sanding or filing to length. Vedder recommends a 7/32" but if you have happen to have a indexed drill bit set you could use a #3 or #4 bit to get a tighter fit and take out some of the play. Even with these faults I would recommend the Claw because it really makes a big difference in concealing my Glock 19.
Veederholsters was very helpful and sent me a how to video.Installed on light tuck holster for Glock 43 it seems to help it hide a bit better.Easy to add on to holster after watching video.Thank you Veeder Holster!
I have a drawer full of very good holsters, but the vedder is the best yet. I bought just the light tuck and was pleased with it. Then I added the claw and it gave much more concealability. Comfortable all day!!!
I bought the Vedder Lighttuck for my Sig P365 and have to say it's great. Fit like a proverbial glove. Then I decided to try adding the claw to lessen the printing. The fit is the same.. great.. but the printing has lessened.. a bit difficult for me cuz I have a muffin over my belt. Love the fact that Vedder made a great holster for the P365 with Crimson Trace laser. It's the only one I've found. Plus, it's great to support a family business. Next purchase will be a spare mag holster.
Have a VedderLight Tuk with the claw attachment and love it. We all have other kydex holsters and I thought that because it worked so well I would try to attach the claw to them. After measuring I found that indeed the claw would fit on not all but some of my “collection”. Worked out great and I highly recommend The Claw attachment.
Just perfect! A must have.
I NEVER review products, but I'll just say that between the Vedder holsters and this claw (I carry at 3:30 IWB btw) that this is the only company I'll use for my carry purposes with all my guns from now on. Kudos Vedder.
Great product! It does exactly what it is designed to do, I've gone from minor printing to zero printing.
I purchased a light-tuck w/o a claw for an S&W Sheild. When I added the Claw, I immediately noticed a different feel om my body, especially in a seated position. Even leaning forward I could the retention. I highly recommend adding the claw to any existing model of holster
This fit perfectly and is a great addition to my light tuck holster for my FNS 9C.
The claw completes the Light Tuck holster. It improves concealment of the grip of my M&P 40 full size by pushing on the inside of the belt tucking it toward the body. Works great no printing even wearing just a T-shirt. If you haven't added the claw to yours, do it! Otherwise buy the holster with the claw, you won't be disappointed.
The claw attachment is very well constructed and sturdy. That being said, if you are going to buy the claw attachment for a previous holster on a larger sized handgun(4"+ barrel) than I would consider not ordering this claw attachment as the claw appears to only come in 1 size and with the way the claw sits parallel to the belt clip, it does not properly sit along the belt line as it should causing some weird alignment issues, rendering the holster uncomfortable and harder to use/conceal.
ships withing 3 days....but sits in warehouse for another 5 days before leaves. 8 days after order still no product. All I ordered was a claw add on.
Awesome product. Made my cancelled MP Shield hug my body with no printing. I have the claw on my other 2 weapons and they are awesome! The only issue I had was the shipping, it took 7 days.
So, many things I love about my Vedder Holsters, but the claw is one of my favorites. I easily, and comfortably conceal a CZ 75b compact. I've even bought them for other cheaper kydex holsters and it drastically improves them. But their still not a Vedder.
I really like the concept behind the claw. It works reasonably well. My issue is that it is too short. The top of the claw ends up falling below my belt, which reduces its effectiveness and makes it difficult to take off my pistol at the end of the day. I don't like when I have obstacles to take off my pistol. I would recommend adding about an inch to the length to alleviate this issue. ***VH COMMENT*** Thank you for your feedback! We can defiantly understand that! We have recently designed a longer Claw that we think may work out better or you. Just reach out to out to our team and we will be happy to get that taken care of for you. Have a great day!
Since it is from Vedder I expected it to work. I was not disappointed! It does indeed hold the light tuck at an angle that minimizes printing. If you are buying a LT, add the Claw. If you have a LT already, buy the Claw. Easy to install, takes like 5 min. The video on installing it is great. Boom, done!
Very easy to install. Makes a great holster even better.
The claw add on is a great addition to your IWB holster, especially if you carry appendix carry. It was easy for me to install and it really pulls the pistol in closer to your body as long as your belt is snug. They say that the claw is not compatible with the Colt Mustang holster but I did not find that to be the case. However, there is limited space on this particular holster below the trigger so a small section on the corner of the claw hangs off of the holster. The claw is still firmly attached and does what it needs to do fine.
I love the claw! I have been using light tuck holsters for about 2 yeas now and really like them. I recently bought a few claws to add to them. I cannot believe what a difference they make. I carry at about 4:00 and would have to be carful of bending down and printing or of my shirt coming up over my gun if I sat a while. With the claw the butt of the gun hugs my body and carrying with only a t-shirt as cover is no problem. I have my holster adjusted with a forward cant so I actually installed the claw with the same cant and am very happy with it. It also helps hold the gun at the correct cant and not shift.
Holsters suck. Carrying a gun.... Sucks. And I especially don't like to appendix carry because well, you guessed it, it sucks. But after getting my SIG and watching a couple of reviews I decided to get another holster with this claw thing hoping it would not suck. Well, it doesn't. Its actually quite comfortable. Now I carry more and bitch less. These aren't the cheapest out there but think of how many holsters you have and don't use. I'm not an expert, just a guy with too many holsters.
Wasn't expecting it to make much of a difference on a Glock 43 holster but it was amazing. I could almost wear a lycra shirt without it printing. Have to get one for the 19 now
Bought one for holster from a different co. That doesn’t offer a claw option and modded it to accept the vedder claw. Works so well my wife wanted me to order another to mod her holster with.
I bought this to add to my Light Tuck for a Shield 9mm. Installation itself was a breeze. But the claw moves around quite a bit, wiggling around the retention screw. Also, the claw doesn't seem long enough to reach my belt, with my belt clip in the mid position, only half the claw connects. I am assuming a factory install would be more precise. ***VH COMMENT*** Thank you taking the time to review your experience.

Everything but the drill included. Less than 5 minutes install, even other brand holsters... Love it. Ordered 2 more for other pistols.
Love this thing. Bought an entire holster for my G19 with the claw and it was amazing. Had another brand holster for my G26 and added the claw to it and it transformed how it felt. I will use claws on all my holsters going forward.
Makes such a night and day difference. Pulls the gun closer to your body. I went from printing to completely concealed in just moments after a simple installation. Thanks Vedder Holsters!
Great accessory very easy to put on great fit
Added this Claw to existing LightTuck, it works great. I think it could be a little taller to completely align with the belt, but it works to tuck the butt in.
I carry a Glock 43 with a +1 mag extension on a daily basis in the appendix position. I was skeptical as how big of a difference the claw would make due to how small and already concealable the 43 is. After a quick and easy install of the claw, I could not have been more impressed after donning the holster. This is a must have accessory and I will not have another holster without it. 10/10 would recommend
Purchased three of these for M&P Shield 9, M&P 9c and M&P 9 full size. Recently installed on all three, but only have worn with the 9c with the 17 round magazine. Definitely does the job it is supposed to do. I wear in the 4:30ish position and it pulls the but of the gun into my body for noticeably better concealment than without it.
Works just as described. Pulls the holster in closer to the body for even better concealment. Easy to install with just one note. The item used to locate the hole you drill is a template only and needs to be discarded. Stupid me tried to use it in the reassembly.
Just bought a vedder holster with claw. Really like it. My Shield fits perfectly in holster and claw does what it supposed to. Thinking about getting my husband one.
The product works as advertised. It was very easy to install. You just have to drill one little hole. There are Youtube videos if you need them. Excellent just like the holster.
The claw kit is designed to keep the firearm tight to the body. They're made for the Light Tuck holster, but figuring I could modify my Rapid Tuck holster to accept the claw I purchased one. Installation was pretty easy. I replaced the center rivet on the backside of the Kydex with a blind nutsert for leather and used the enclosed template to drill the additional hole required. It functions perfectly, keeping the extended magazine on my Glock 43 from printing under my shirt.
I added the Claw to my Glock 30 Light Tuck and there is a noticeable difference in how snug the butt of the grip is kept a bit closer to my side. Installation couldn't have been easier. This is a fantastic addition to a great holster..
The Add -On kit does what it's supose to do,but the screw provided was not long enough to do the job properly. I had to get a longer screw. No big deal . ***VH COMMENT*** Thank you for taking the time to review. You should not have to get a longer screw, we are sorry to hear that. You may have been sent a shorter screw by mistake. If we can be of any assistance, please feel free to reach back out to us. Thank you so much for your business, have a great day!
Simply awesome! It's amazing how something so simple could make a huge difference. If you have an issue with printing don't hesitate to purchase the claw.It installs in a couple of minutes. Just buy it!
Works great! Finally a claw that does what it’s intended to do. Easy install.
I have just retrofitted my four LightTuck holsters with the Claw and the results--for me with my body type at 5'8" 175lbs--are impressive. I never carry AIWB . . . I carry IWB at 4 o'clock only. I have drawers full of holsters but only use the Vedders now. I have read mixed reviews about using the Claw in other than AIWB positions but decided to try it anyway and I'm glad I did. The claw tucks the pistol butt in just a bit more to my side, not uncomfortably at a all. Feels a lot more secure and concealed. The LightTuck was great before and now it's even better carrying my 1) Glock 30, 2) CZ 75 Compact PCR 9mm, 3) CZ Rami 9mm, and the new Sig P365 (not in carry rotation until I get my stainless steel striker replacement). Thanks Vedder! Sincerely, Ben in Helotes, Texas
installed on a similar holster from a competitor and it works great.
Having tried a number of different holsters for my Glock 19 and Shield m9mm, I have finally found one that is above reproach if you utilize the appendix carry technique. My Shield version did not have the claw, but the later one for my Glock did. One carry with that version, and an order was sent in for a claw for the Shield holster. It was easy to install, and greatly reduced the "printing" from the pistol grip. A+ rating.
I have been using a Vedder Light tuck for over a year, and found it almost perfect. I order the "new " claw add on kit, because it looked like it would help out in the summer. The ordering went without a hitch and before I knew it , it was in the mail box. Great directions on how to install. Took less than 5 min to do and it does indeed do as advertised . Highly recommend , both the company and the light tuck with claw.
I originally got without the claw but with a plus 2 on my 43 I was printing a little with the butt of the gun. This claw fixed the problem completely! Highly recommend it!!
Works great to bring the grip of a Glock 17 close to your body.
Just added the claw to my holster and I'm writing to let everyone know if you didn't think you could carry a 1911 government concealed in Florida in the hot summer THINK AGAIN
I'm really happy I purchased the claw attachments for all my previous holster purchased.They was received in a timely manner, very easy to install, and made a big difference with the concealment of my handgun. I would recommend this to anyone that carries concealed, especially appendix carry.
I'm really happy I purchased this product. It was received in a timely manner, very easy to install, and made a big difference with the concealment of my handgun. I would recommend this to anyone that carries concealed, especially appendix carry.
Really great product idea, and works very well. Bought for a Ruger LC9, Walther CCP, and a Beretta PX4 Compact. Install is very easy (though I stepped down in drill bit size - 7/32 was a hair too big). Only critique is that on the LC9 there really isn't room to install it straight up and down, so it's angled a bit more than I anticipated. No complaints - just an observation. Really like it, And I have had great experiences with Vedder and their great service. Great job!
Easy enough to install but you have to consider the cant of the holster carefully. Once you drill the hole to attach the claw, you get what you get.
Very happy with the product! Really works!
I have had the light tuck for about a year now. Everyday comfortable. However the Ruger SR-9 was a bit difficult to conceal under lighter clothing. The claw works as advertised, pulls the grip in close.
I added the claw to my Lite Tuck and its performance is amazing. I can now wear it under a T shirt without printing at all. Your holsters are simply the best and now they are even better.
I have found this to be the best claw available for appendix carry on the market today.
Makes concealing a full size m&p 2.0 a lot easier in the appendix position. Awesome job Vedder!
Well, it does pull the 26 a little closer. My complaint is the accompanying screw (extended) could be a tad longer. It took me a while to get it started--3/32" longer would be about right.
The Claw makes a great holster even better. More comfortable and better concealment. Very easy installation. I highly recommend the Claw.
So first off I want to start off saying I have about 5 Vedder holsters all of them Light tuck, in my opinion it's a great product great holster the claw isn't high enough to go under the belt and you can't tighten it enough without over doing the retention and the firearm and it has play ***VH Comment*** Thank you for taking the time to review your holster. Prior to shipment, the belt clip will be placed in the deepest ride height setting for your preference! We will ensure the Claw attachment is positioned at the highest location possible, as close to the trigger guard as we can make it. The Claw attachment is designed to never interfere with the draw of the gun. We recommend carrying your weapon in a position that allows for a good master grip to be made without interference from your pants or belt which will allow the claw to grab the belt flawlessly. We do, however, understand that some people prefer a deep ride height and because the LightTuck offers a wide range of adjustability for a wide range of gun models compared to some other competitors with a claw product, there may be a situation where the Claw does not grab the belt in the deepest ride height setting. We do offer a 30 day return policy if the holster will not work out of you.
Love the Light Tuck holsters,but l had a bit of printing with extended mags. Purchased four claw retrofit kits for my light tuck holsters. Easy install. Amazing results! If you are considering IWB carry, this is a no brainer. Get the claw option, or spend the 8 bucks and add the claw. Easy upgrade to concealment. Big difference at a small cost. One note: I recommend adding a drop of Blue Loktite sealant on the claw threads to keep the tension on the weapon as intended. The blue Loktite will allow for adjustment while preventing unintentional loosening,
The claw makes a great holster excellent
Was intrigued with this add to item and am not disappointed. The claw puts just enough pressure on your belt to keep the holster and firearm a little closer to the body. It is easy to install and there was no noticeable discomfort. Give it a try.
I had never owned a Claw on any of my holsters before buying one from Vedder. I understood the concept behind them, but I never knew what a tremendous difference it would make. Installation was simple and easy. Highly,highly recommend!!!.
It effectively does it's job. Shipping was fast and the install was very easy. I'm happy with it.
This easy add on to my holster made my p938 even easier to conceal. I was considering a different IWB holster before this add on. 10/10 recommend.
I recently purchased and installed the claw add on kit to my Light Tuck IWB Vedder holster and it made a huge difference in keeping my Sig P365 close to my body for total concealment. I hight recommend this product.
This add on works great to reduce printing when out in public. Easy to install too!
Excellent product. Adjustable & small enough to fit in any holster where you can put a screw in. Printing gone on M&p shield. You need to advertise this product more. Been a gun owner since 06, I never knew this existed until now. This product is a must have lifesaver. Thanks vedder for an excellent product.
Originally I bought a lighttuck AIWB holster without the claw since I didn't know what it was. After wearing the holster for a while I noticed the slight printing the lighttuck produced and became interested in the claw to increase concealability. After the simple five minute installation process and wearing the holster with the claw I have learned my lesson to save those couple dollars and order all future Vedder holsters with the claw installed.
Love the holster. The metal clip grabs my belt better tthan some plastic clips I've used. The adjustable height and angle allows a custom fit. I prefer my pistol tipped forwar, 4 o'clock position. The claw( It definitely reduces printing, also affect draw as pistol is against body. Have been wearing both ways, using claw as I'm writing. Jury's still out. Got the red, carbon fiber. Beautiful look, nicely molded.
I recently received my Vedder LightTuck with the Claw attachment for my new Sig P365. Like my other 2 LightTuck holsters, it was excellent. The Claw does what is advertised. It holds the pistol grip closer to my body in the appendix carry position. So impressed with the Claw attachment, I ordered one for my LCP II LightTuck holster. I received it, yesterday. After some careful fitting and drilling, it fits perfectly! Imagine a Ruger LCP II in a LightTuck holster carried in the appendix position. It's going to conceal very well, as one would expect. Now, with the Claw attachment, it's completely invisible under a snug fitting tee. Awesome, Vedder . . . simply awesome!
i will recommend this product(claw)
I have been wearing my Vedder holster for a little over a year now, and was very happy with it. I carry a Glock 19 in appendix position, and the Lighttuck did a great job of concealing with everything except my lightest tee-shirts. The claw attachment turns the grip in towards my abdomen just enough that now I can conceal it under just a single tee-shirt. I am super thrilled with the product. I have recommended Vedder to my family and friends, and will continue to do so!
I gave this a 5 star because its everything Vedder advertises and there is a small note that indicates if you wear your holster low it probably wont work, and it doesn’t. Wish i had read that beforehand but my bad. However, Vedder is awesome i. Everything ive bought from them.
My Vedder light tuck was already comfortable and concealable. But the claw added extra retention and sense of security. Thanks to Pennie. C she's awesome, always there to answer any questions in a timely and professional manner. Guys, you can't go wrong with Vedder's innovative and quality products. After a lot of research they are now my go to company for all my holster needs.
Works great with my light tuck and my G17 or G19.
Love my light tuck holster. I’ve seen these claw attachments for other brand holsters and was waiting for Vedder to come out with one for their’s. Well the wait is over and this little attachment is Awesome! Now my light tuck is truly Perfect!!! Thanks Vedder holsters!
Great Product. Great Price. Fast Shipping and Easy to Install.
I have four Vedder holsters and unfortunately the claw is a little disappointing. It’s not tall enough to stay behind my belt and it’s not a great idea to attach what is essentially a lever to the retention screw. The holsters are great products and I’m sure they’ll come out with a better version of the claw in the future. ***Vedder Holsters COMMENT*** Thank you for the feedback on our new Claw.

Well as is reads in the description (just noticed it ordered my claw before seeing it) smaller platform Lighttuck holsters may not be compatible with the claw for two reasons - 1) the holster itself being of a minimalist design may not have enough room to drill the extra hole. 2) the smaller sized pistols like Kahr CW380, Ruger LCP, S&W Bodyguard, etc. usually don't need the extra "sucking into the body" for non printing. But being a Vedders, I ordered 2 claws, 1 for my lighttuck and 1 for other holsters I have around. My Lighttuck which is my favorite holster of the many different styles and manufacturer's I been through. With that being said, I did successfully install a claw on my Kahr CW380 Lighttuck holster - the added hole is pretty close to the edge of the holster which is why I can see why Vedders doesn't recommend the claw for the pocket / micro pistols, but still "doable". As per the description it does what it supposed to do - brings the handle in closer to the body as the claw is well designed to push up against the inside of the waistband. It is very trim, sturdy, and not in the way of the draw for appendix to 5:00 position, and retains the "tuckability" of the holster. Very glad I purchased this upgrade to my Vedders, and to add to any other holster that has enough room to drill the second hole. I would say that it really would come into play as far as functionality goes when it comes to the sub compact to mid to full size pistols to keep the handle in, but for the smaller micros, it's not really needed but doesn't hurt to have.
I purchased the claw in conjunction with my new LightTuck (definitely the way to go, a few bucks cheaper and the holes come drilled already). Although I'm planning on switching to a RapidTuck (the LightTuck was just digging in funny on me), I would say this attachment is a MUST HAVE for anybody with a LightTuck who plans on carrying appendix even a little! The gun goes from barely printing in a loose fitting black shirt, to no printing what so ever in a tight fitting light grey shirt (with extended mag). I've also found that the twisting of the holster does aid in the comfort department a bit for me personally. I was planning on getting an aftermarket claw and modifying my LightTuck to take it, but when I saw Vedder added this, the choice was easy, I saved $10 and didn't have to hope that it would work. True, I may be switching away from the LightTuck, it's still a fine holster, just not right for me, but I couldn't be happier that Vedder is now offering this as part of their line and you would be a fool not to get it unless you walk around wearing a down jacket year-round.
I first want to say that I currently own six Vedder Light Tuck holsters. So, I apparently think they are very well made product offering adjustability for carry depth and cant. I might add, that there customer service is impeccable. With that being said, I don't think the Claw attachment was engineered very well. There are three positions for carry depth. If you choose the top holes for deepest concealment, the Claw is not long enough to catch your belt with the 1 1/2" belt clip. I had to choose the bottom setting for highest ride height for the claw to engage the bottom half of my belt. **VH COMMENT** I am sorry to hear that your claw does not meet you needs. Due to the high degree of adjustability of the LightTuck holster, it is possible that the claw may not be effective in the low ride height positions. I will certainly pass your feedback on to our product development team for future product improvements. We appreciate your business and you taking the time to share your experience.
I love the new claw. It eliminated the protrusion of the Shield's butt from the waistband. Easy to apply and works very well. It does put more stress on the waistband and belt, and I am unsure what effect, if any, this will have long range. The pistol definitely prints less with this attachment! I heartily recommend it.
I own five Vedder Light Tuck Holsters and decided to purchase two claw attachments. I carry everyday, in the Appendix position, and depending on the days schedule it could be either my CZ P-10c, Glock 27, Glock 43 w/ TRL6 or Sig P238. I attached the claw to my CZ & 27 Holsters. What a difference in regards to concealment these have made! Quality, easy of installation and perfect fit! If you have any doubt about this product from Vedder, don’t! It’s great!
Well worth $6.00! I carry the small Glock 26 with a longer, 15 round magazine in a Vedder LightTuck (IWB-Appendix). That means the pistol grip is difficult to conceal. The Claw is very effective in forcing the longer pistol grip in closer to my body. I can now wear shirts that are not quite so baggy to avoid printing. Tip-1: The template provided was too long to sit properly while preparing to drill the required hole. So I ground both ends of the template to get it to fit is the small space on the holster. (This wouldn't be a problem for a pistol with a longer barrel.) Tip-2: Just like in the video, my holster is pure black. To make it easier for me to see the mark to drill the hole I first applied a piece of masking tape to the holster. That made it easier for me to see the mark on the holster and drill it accrately. Tip-3: After a test fit of The Claw in the 2 holes, a corner of The Claw was protruding outside the normal profile of the holster. A quick touch-up at the belt sander was the final step in fitting. Again, larger guns probably won't have this problem. I wish that the part of The Claw that is made to contact my belt was longer. I wear a heavy 1 1/2" leather gun belt. With the cant that I prefer The Claw is only touching about 1/3 of my belt. Chuck
Does as advertised. Closer fit to body. Very comfortable
Very easy to install, great quality, and does what it says. Overall a great add on to a great holster.
Excellent product. Works great as advertised. Easy installation. Will not go without. Highly recommend this for appendix carry with Light Tuck Kydex Holster.
Made a great holster even better!
First off, my LightTuck was already my main carry holster. I already liked this holster a lot. When I saw the claw had been released I went ahead and ordered one, thinking I had little to lose. Overall I am very impressed - both with the impact of adding the claw, and the fact that Vedder made it a retrofit for existing holsters in the wild. It's easy to install, and has an immediate felt impact. I concealed-carry a full size M&P at about 2:30-3:00, and this helps pull the grip in closer to my body, reducing printing and overall improving conceal-ability. Long story short, if you own a LightTuck and a drill, I recommend this upgrade highly, and I commend Vedder for releasing it as a retrofit to existing owners.
Had to trim off excess overhang on my claw. And also added a dab of hot glue to keep it from slightly moving. Other than that it does exactly what its supposed to do. Plus the little ten minutes it took to fix was nothing. Overall it does hold tighter to my frame. Expect a slight difference on fitment of claw, due to different sizes of holsters depending on size of firearm.
Very easy to install and does what it's supposed to do.
It works as advertised.Pulls the butt of my Kahr PM45 in close to body concealing it so it disappears under a T shirt.Here on south Florida,that means a lot.
I have seen similar products before and thought that they looked liked they would be a great addition to the holster, but then have forgotten all about them. When I saw that Vedder now had this product, I was pretty excited. It was good that they have made it backwards compatible so I could add it to the Lite Tucks that I have owned for a couple years, I am not a slender guy and have some love handles. With the claw. it just really helps suck the butt in the gun right up close. The Claw has taken a great holster and made it even better. I have another Claw on the way and probably will get one more after that. They are also very affordable. You get a lot for a small amount of money!! Thanks Vedder!!
Was excited to add the Claw to my Light tuck, straight forward install seemed shorter than expected. Wrote to customer service and they were glad to help me out. The Customer Service made me wish I could make this higher than a 5 star review. Thanks again Pennie
For me the best thing about the claw is that it increased the carry comfort. It also gave me more options. Because it doesn’t print (at all now) I can carry the lighttuck at a higher setting. This improved draw speed and comfort. In my opinion this is a necessary component of the holster.
It was easy to add the claw to my LightTuck, and now my Sig P320 Compact disappears under a t-shirt (appendix position for me). Be sure to use it with a sturdy belt for best results.
Works exactly as advertised. My only criticism is that the video cannot be expanded and the guy demonstrating seems to always have his hand in the way. Also would recommend a more standard drill bit size. I had to borrow a 7/32". The claw does make my favorite holster better.
Great add-on to my light tuck. Installed in just a few minuets. I'll add it to every new light tuck I order.
I run the G42 as low as possible and find the claw is too short to push against my belt, pushes against trousers...but my LightTuck still my ‘go-to’ holster. **VH COMMENT** Thank you for your feedback. Due to the high degree of adjustability of the LightTuck there are a few instances where the LightTuck will not make the right amount of contact in the lowest ride height position to be effective. We apologize that this was the case for you and thank you for taking the time to share your feedback and thank you for your business.
The claw came out shortly after I got the holster. I emailed asking about some sort of claw but never heard back. Then a couple weeks later I got the email rolling out the claw. It def changed this thing for the better love the way it conceals now.
The claw is very easy to install with the providedo insure the orientation hole is drill in the right location.
Very good improvement to an already excellent product.The installation went very easily (took about 20 minutes to install on both lite-tucks), and did indeed pull the pistol somewhat closer to my body. Just what I expected from Vedder.
Recently purchased two claw attachments for my light tuck holsters. They arrived quickly and free shipping is great. The claw was extremely easy to install onto my existing holsters. Overall a great product that aids in concealment. The only thing I would change is the included screw for the claw could be slightly longer. The included one works but only engages a few threads. I would feel better about it not falling out if it were slightly longer. Overall a great product and well worth the money.
This extension does help keep the holster from rotating and closer to the body. The downside is it makes insertion into pants and removal of the holster a bit more difficult since its purpose is to "snag" against the pants. Also, I did the modification to an existing holster and it is a very easy process to mark and drill the hole for the attachment of the claw. I do appreciate the evolution and customer support and focus this modification represents. Vedder is doing a great job here.
I ordered my lighttuck and about a month later the claw was released. I ordered it right away and it was to me VERY FAST. Very easy to install with just one drill hole. It makes quite a difference. I’m only carrying a G42 but I know when I get a bigger gun I won’t have any issues printing because the claw tucks the handle right in. I almost forgot...THE BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE HANDS DOWN!!!
it doses what it is intended to do really well
Received the claw attachment in just a few days with no shipping charge! Thank you. Very simple installation, I just purchased a 26 light tuck a few months ago to go along with the 43 I already had. The claw was a welcome addition to an already nice lightweight and rugged simple holster. Thanks again.
Super pleased with the original Lighttuck, but wanted an even "tighter" fit as carrying appendix. Works great! Even less printing and I cannot fell the claw at all. In fact, since more flush to my body I need to do a bit more training in order to accommodate the new fit.
Funny how a little piece of plastic make a big difference. I liked my holster before but now it is really part of my attire. No more worries of printing.
I am very happy that I purchase a claw to put on my existing light up holster. I ordered a holster with a claw for my second concealed carry weapon and I love the fact that that double stack Firearms no longer Prince When I have on t-shirts. I have not attached Mike LOL yet because of so much to do and too little time but I can't wait to get it on the first holster. I would also like to thank you for the easy instructions for attaching The holster.
Well worth the $6 to add to my pre-existing LightTuck. The base of the handle sits a half inch closer to my abdomen. That small distance makes a great difference optimizing concealment. I prefer fitted t-shirts and the claw facilitates my wardrobe choice.
Bought this for the LightTuck Holster for M&P9 Shield and Glock 17. The claw does exactly what is advertised. Makes the holster press up to the body without added girth or discomfort. Excellent Add on. Well thought out.
The Light Tuck is an excellent holster in all respects. The addition of the claw accessory to this fine holster makes it even better. Printing caused by the gun's grip is obviously reduced. I like it! And I recommend it!
This claw is the perfect addition for my light tuck holster. I've been having trouble concealing properly in the appendix position. I weigh 130 pounds, therefore, the circumference of my waist is very small. The claw hides the grip of my Glock 43 perfectly.
Works the way its supposed to! Can't go wrong adding this accessory to your daily carry.
Installed the claw on both of my Lighttuck Kydex IWB holsters (S&W M&P 45 and Walther PK380). On both printing is noticeably reduced when wearing t-shirts and nonexistent wearing anything heavier. I can even carry the Smith with the larger magazine. Well worth the small price.
Thanks for offering a claw at a reasonable price, one half of what others charge. Once installed, printng with the gun grip is significantly reduced. The screw to attach the claw was too short for my Kahr pm9 I **VH COMMENT** I am sorry to hear that your screw was too short to fit your PM9 holster. This should certainly not be the case. We would love to see why this issue is occurring so we can resolve it for you. We thank you for your business and taking the time to share your feedback.
Ordered this item several weeks ago, not because of any dissatisfaction with my 'Light Tuck' G43 holster. But, $5.99.. what the heck. Easy installation. It definitely works to pull the pistol grip closer into your body, making concealment a touch easier.. (I carry IWBA)
After going around and around with Holsters, I found that the LightTuck was 'almost' perfect for G42..I like to wear handgun low(appendix)..it printed a wee bit with a +1 magazine..so tried the claw but it isn't long enough with the holster adjusted for it's lowest position(clip at highest position on holster). The claw doesn't push against the belt, but my trousers..so doesn't decrease printing. Still love the holster and will continue to use it exclusively. **VH COMMENT** Thank you for your feedback. Due to the high degree of adjustability of the LightTuck holster, there are some instances where the claw may not make enough contact to be effective on the lowest ride height setting. I will certainly pass your suggestions on to our product development team to see if there is any way we can make this adjustment for future product updates. We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience.
Two days before they debuted the claw I was looking for one that I might be able to jury rig to my two Vedder holsters. Well, they solved that problem. Easy to install and works great. Pushes my grip in tight for better concealment yet still gives me a good draw. Cudos to the Vedder family.
Was just getting ready to contact Vedder and see what it would cost to adapt one of their holsters to except a claw, when I get this email notifying me that they have added a claw to their line of products. Ordered 3. These work great and help keep the butt of the handgun tucked into the body. AWSOME! I carry every day and always use the vedder products. GREAT HOLSTERS! Even better with their claw.
Big plus to the light tuck holds gun closer to your body for better concealment yet still comfortable.
Pros: Easy install Minimal design Cons: Doesn’t grab as much of the belt as a RCS wing does, which results in not as great Concealment. Overall a much needed accessory for the Vedder holster... wish it was slightly taller to grip more of the belt. **VH COMMENT** Thank you for your feedback. I will certainly pass your comments on to our product development team for future product updates. We appreciate your business and thank you for taking the time to share your review.
I got a light tuck IWB holster for my CZ PCR. Tried it but decided it wasn't going to work because the grip would noticeably print (wearing appendix). Decided to give the claw a try (at around $6 nothing to lose). Installed it and now it conceals perfectly. This definitely makes it work and is a must. Great idea and product.
Perfect addition to an already great holster. Easy install. Get one.
I didn't ever think I could get much happier with my LIGHTTUCK holster. It is the best holster I own and wish I would have found Vedder from day one. I noticed a few other brands that had a "claw" attachment on their holsters and thought it was a cool idea since I would sometime get a slight print from my Shield while wearing AIWB. Before I knew it, I saw Vedder post a sneak preview about their claw! I was super excited to try it out and ordered the first day it was available. Install was very easy and wow does this make a huge improvement. It really brings the gun in closer to my body and now there's no printing whatsoever. I couldn't be happier about this add-on, and would highly recommend it to anyone with a LIGHTTUCK. Thank you Vedder!
Claw was easy to install. Must have with longer handle guns.
I've been using the Light Tuck holsters for many years; I have five or six of them and carry using one every day. The addition of the Claw makes the holster even better.
Last December I called to customer service asking for this solution for appendix carry. The lady on the phone told me "we will have a claw in January". End of story, I received it today, already installed and Vedder got I happy customer :-)
