    I believe most keep it attached to a belt that runs under the girth. I keep mine attached to my girth belt.

    ummmm....are we talking about the cod piece still...right?

    Isn't there a strap that goes from your cod piece to the back of your girth belt...sorta like a thong ?

    Or is that just Boba?

    just Boba. I use chicago screws. Everything is held together so I don't get saggy ammo pouches, saggy belt, saggy holsters. The holsters are chcago screwed to the thigh armor. Leather straps hold thighs in place so you don't have to strap them through the suit.

    Top screws are holding the ammo belt in place. Middle screws are holding the cod. The last screw in the middle holds the leather piece that connects the holsters on the front of the cod.

    What did you do, go looking in a California vehicle code?? I needed to find a number I could remember. I got the idea from Cruzer, although he uses an extra belt for the cod/holster straps.

    very nice idea...i like it...iam assuming all your screws were put in through the insides of the pouches so they were never seen, what size did you need to go through all the leather? like 3/8"

    actually through the belts only. My pouches slide from side to side. Put the female portion through from the front and screw it from the back. The pouches move enough the cover the heads. You can see on the second pic the strap at the back of the pouch is pretty thin in width and gives plenty of movement to cover the heads. 3/8th should work, I forgot what they are.
