Break In Instructions


When you receive your Kusiak Holster it will be stiff and it will require a break in period some will be tighter than others, here are a couple of steps you can take to break in your holster.

When you first receive your holster there will be a break in period. Some holsters will be stiffer than others.

The first step is to wrap your pistol in plastic.The most common flexible plastic you will find around your home is a grocery bag.

By cutting off the handles and cutting off the bottom it leaves you with a ring of plastic, cut it to make a long strip.

Now wrap it all around the muzzle barrel and trigger area the part that will be going inside the holster.

After you wrap it in plastic. 

Fully insert the pistol into the holster, initially your slide might get pushed out of battery, just push it back in… insert the holster into

Your waistband and wear it for about 2-3 hours, you should notice a difference at this time. The heat and compression of it being in your waistband will get the material to conform to your pistol.After you’ve worn it all day, leave the holstered pistol overnight with the plastic and you should see a difference in the morning. If it is still too tight, try again. 

Leather will stretch a day in break in is not a big deal for a holster that will last you for years.

* If you order the Tuckable option, loosen the screw before adjusting the clip.
