These holders are over priced to begin with ($30 for a piece of plastic). Once you own the autolock, you have basically no choices but to purchase their holder once yours fails, which the belt clip on mine (just snapped off and holder fell on the ground) did after about 1.5 years of duty use. Safariland only warranty's it for 1 year, and would not do anything for me except list some dealers. Batonwarehouse sent me the wrong holder (they sent the 360 degree version instead of the 45 degree version I ordered), which was apparently the result of a mislabeled shipment from Safariland. That said, Batonwarehouse was immediate with a reply to my complaint and advised they were shipping a correct holder (low carry basket weave for a 26" autolock), out to me with a prepaid shipping label to send the other one back.
Ultimately I think the holder is overpriced and am disappointed in the quality of the belt clip (should not be as flimsy as it is), but I can't find another Brand's holder for this baton, or I'd try something else. Batonwarehouse was among the cheapest I could find and has provided good customer service and expedient shipping. Maybe you'll have a better overall experience with the product. I personally believe the 26" Monadnock Autolocking baton is a good tool, but kind of bulky (long) and expensive.
