    Depends on the application and the type of joint you are planning to create. Are you attempting to fix a cracked holster?

    No cracks. I have an IWB appendix carry holster with the belt clip located over the trigger guard. It tends to rotate forward into my pants because of the clip location. I want to add a small hook over the slide that hooks over my belt to prevent the forward tilt. I can't use any screws or rivets because it would scrape the slide. It is not for retention just to prevent the forward tilt.

    That's likely occurring due to the clip itself being larger than your belt. Gluing a clip on will not help and it will not hold. You would benefit from a clip that first your belt better than the Blade Tech clip.

    About 4 bucks at Walmart. The adhesive sealant is what you want for a strong bond. I’ve used this stuff on more things than I can count over the years and it’s amazing. Rough up the area and clean with alcohol or other degreasing agent for best bond.
    Also, I’ve noticed that anywhere you can drill a few small holes (or use existing holes)and force the adhesive through while squeezing the parts together will hold a lot more secure. This silicone adhesive sets up like real rubber no matter how thick it’s applied and you literally have to cut it to remove it from surfaces.

    If you are good with a Dremel tool you can make an appendage using Bondo.

    There is also a plastic repair / model putty that can be shaped. I think itís a Super Glue brand product. The hobby store near Academy on Airline in BR has it, plus Hobby Lobby and Michaelís. Itís in the plastic model section in some stores and adhesives aisle in others

    Sand smooth and paint to match.

    Thanks for the info. I made a hook from a piece of hose clamp and used 3M super mounting tape to attach it to the holster. It does what I wanted it to do.

    Going up a quality notch into the $55-75 neighborhood will make a huge difference. BladeTech makes great competition holsters, but there are others that have better IWB designs, particularly for appendix carry.

    Everythingís on sale right now for Black Friday so not a bad time to be holster shopping. The Henry Flint is $55 right now and thatís a helluva holster. Phlster Classic at $60 is great. Vedder Lighttuck with a claw at $53 not a bad third choice.

    Swapping the stock plastic clip for a DCC clip will make a big difference in the interim.

    I looked at the 3 you suggested. I liked the Henry Flint the best but it isn't available for G19, only the G43. I like the molded in wedge and dual retention straps. If it was available for the G19 I would buy it.
    The Phliser has the clip over the trigger guard and would tend to rotate forward just as the Blade Tech does. It also has a molded in wedge.
    The Vedder has the clip centrally located and it might eliminate the rotation problem but no wedge. The hook I added to the Blade Tech accomplishes the same thing.

    I think they have the regular and compact flavors listed separately on their website.
