    I have several danglers and use them every day. Little has contributed more to my appreciation of EDC than the dangler. Now I have an item that hangs from a 1" wide strap and it makes sense to me to hang it in my pocket from a dangler. I get that there are lots of solutions, but the strap slot begs for a similar strap slot on the dangler. The red slots on the common danglers below illustrate the idea. A quick DuckDuckGo search turned up no images. Does that mean this is a custom-only item?

    Looks like a custom build is in order. Aren't all those above custom, or at least originated that way?

    Looks that way to me too. Who are the custom builders in the dangler arena?

    That is, indeed, the question. Hope someone here has an idea!

    Is the webbing open or looped?

    It seems like a webbing anchor plate and an oval split ring would allow you to use one of the existing standard danglers.

    Otherwise, you could probably reach out

    GambleMade - https://www.edcforums.com/forums/gamblemade.204/

    or

    Tec Accessories - https://www.edcforums.com/forums/tec-accessories-keychain-tools.151/

    I don't expect anything one-off would be particularly cheap.

    Hello I work with webbing and hardware for webbing for a living. I’ve never seen this exact dangler with a slot for 1” webbing on the market. I do think that without making it yourself or having it custom made you may have good results by searching for various forms of molle hardware. You may be able to find something that works or something easily modified to work.

    Yes, this joined together with a simple nut & bolt to the OP's 3rd dangler should work well.
