Where are people buying T nuts for IWB holsters? Also what size is a good size to get?
Thanks for the help I cant get the search to work on single letter searches.

They are 8/32 x 1/4 sku NTEENUT8-32, shipped fast. You may have to shorten them for thinner leather but on 9-10 oz they protrude just slightly. I also ordered the screws from them, $4.44 box of 100. I got the size and material off a Bianchi holster, they use stainless. I did find i needed to make the head smaller to fit the snap socket well. Easy to do, put the screw in a drill and run it against my belt grinder.
I like stainless.

Sandwich the t nut between the layers, the the belt loop can easily be replaced on IWB holsters. I use 8/32 stainless t nut and screw, the screw head must be turned down a bit to allow clearance for the snap. Picture is of a Bianchi 120, that's how I determined what size t nut and screw to use. The strap I am unsure of the length, I just made a paper pattern from the Bianchi one. I will measure it layer for you. Lift the spot snaps, or Pull the dot snaps.

Same thing with the pan head #6 crews I use. At the local hardware store, they are 45 cents each in black phosphate. From the bolt supplier, they are 10 cents each -- in stainless.
