Why is there no retention snap with my Streamlight holster?

Unlike our other holsters, the light-bearing models do not feature a “trigger-guard” based retention system. Due to the increased surface area added by the light attachment, a “snappy” trigger-guard retention just will not function the same way.

Because of this, and in an attempt to provide the best possible and security and fit for these models, we transitioned them to a “friction” based retention system. This will hold the firearm securely in the holster, it just won’t feature as prominent of a “positive click”, so nothing to worry about!
