    Would'nt advise using belt loops to hang anything from one little snag and goodbye loop! Use the belt instead!

    I think "one little snag" is exaggerating a bit. I've used my belt loops for years, and I've had some pretty hard snags and I have never busted a loop. Granted, the belt would survive a much greater pull, then again the Grimloc breaks away around 80lbs. In any case, it's going to take more than "one little snag" to rip a belt loop.

    Best of luck with that, not interested with arguing over it! One day it will rip!

    I'm not trying to argue with you. I agree with you that the belt loop is much weaker then the belt. I'm just saying that a single little snag likely isn't going rip it. I good hard rip, it could. That's all, not trying to be a ****. I apologize if you felt I was trying to start an argument with you.

    My husband has a habit of ripping belt loops. Of course he doesn't wear Levis. He once ripped a back pocket completely loose on a brand new pair of pants not 10 minutes after putting them on.

    Only time I have used grimlocks, was when I was deployed to A-stan. Used them to fix the camelback on my body armour.

    I always have a few grimlocs on or in my bag. Too useful to not have. I've clipped keys, bottles, pouches and many other things in times of need.

    I plan on using the grimlocks for hanging stuff outside of a pocket that I will occasionally use, GPS for example. Keep it in the pocket/pouch and hang on on a lanyard on a grimlocks when in use.

    Another use is hanging my gloves outside the pack, I don't want them strored inside; they are fire gloves and always sooty.

    Love em getting some more today,I add them to all my bags I put the zipper pulls thru the grimlock then attach to an anchor point so that the zipper pulls cant work open and its puts anyone off fiddling.
    I found on a couple of bags when lugging a load and lots of movement they can work open a slight bit,also had someone open a pocket in a busy mall.
    Also it takes a few more seconds to open/close with this method while this can be a pain it makes you more mindful to ensure you have closed up well,pay for too much for my Kit to see it fall out

    Think you could post some photos of that? I'd love to learn how you've got that set up.

    I have a gridlock on the bottom of my shoulder strap, for clipping my dog lead to. It makes for hands free dog walking, ad I have a retractable lead so he can run about.

    I have five in tan that I use in assorted ways. Back when they first came out I snapped them up when they weren't so popular. For 5 I paid a grand total of....$5. Should've bought more. I only have one in use right now on my EDC bag. Holds my LifeGear 200 Hour Lightstick in place.

    I just got some today. I've got a couple of ideas of what I'm going to do with them. We'll see what I like best.
