Can anyone suggest a source for the clip that goes on Han's belt to hold the Droid Caller? I'm redoing my rig with a better thickness of material and want to come up with something more like the original. Thanks in advance folks!

It can be done with 2 methods. 1 Piece of metal or 2... depending on your abilities with metal. In my opinion 2 piece metal is easier to make... 1 strip of steal....attached to the belt. The second made in a rounded shape( to hold the Caller) with rounded edges to allow the caller to be removed easier. Take the two pieces and revit them together ( gets hidden by caller) The long strip of steal gets attached to the leather in 2 spots.... you can get these kind of rivets at a leather store.








This one is mine:



Good luck, let me know if you need anymore pics.

Many thanks, Bob, I'll look into that. I don't have much in the way of metalworking skills, but that looks straightforward enough.
