Many people would like to have an extended belt loop, a "dangler" so that the knife can be easily accessed even when you have a jacket on or a large backpack with a hip belt. With a Dangler, it also becomes easy to sit down without the knife getting in the way. When the pouch or sheath hangs it can be bent at the height of the hip joint which allows the knife to smoothly follow your legs movement if you anchor it to the - you can run, climb and bend almost without noticing the knife.
We have also designed the D-ring as a carabiner and thus opened up many new features and applications. You can easily take the knife off without having to open your belt, you can easily move the knife to your backpack for example, or just quickly take it off if you are approaching a populated area. The D-ring is made of sturdy 8mm thick aluminum and in tests the breaking strength has exceeded 400kg which means that you can use it for lots of different purposes, for example, to hang up the equipment, pull an animal or anchor a dog leash to your waist. It can also be used for suspending a tarp or hammocks.
Note that the D-ring should not be used for climbing since a bad fall can create forces that exceed 400kg even if the person is not heavy.
The belt loop is made of sturdy 3mm thick vegetable tanned cowhide available in Cognac Brown, Black or Dark brown. The loop can take belts with a width up to 5cm. The Dangler's D-ring will take knife sheaths with a belt loop up to 34mm wide.
Casström's No.3 Dangler is an accessory to let your knife hang further down from the waist, dangle freely so that you can move easily and make handling on and off the belt smoother. The specially designed D-ring can also be used for other tasks.
