I've been looking around the Net where i can get a bunch of covertech clips for our outpost here in Manila, but I'm not sure which ones are legit or are still up.

So far I've seen these:

and

Any other "agents"? Preferably selling cheaper, of course. Wink

I got mine at the Custom Saber Shop about 2 years ago. Don't know about shipping to your area, but here's the link in case you'd like to inquire:

And since I sometimes like to give unsolicited advice Laughing , let me pass on a WONDERFUL tip someone gave me...

After clipping the Covertec over your belt, secure the clip thing on the inside of your belt with a piece of black tape. It will save your lightsaber from an untimely mishap someday! (I tape the food capsules, too... keeps them nice and straight.)

Good luck on your search. Very Happy

You mean, a piece of tape on the back of the belt, holding the back clip part on more securely??
Good idea. Thanks.

And, yes, TCSS has covertec clips, its like, 13 $ i believe.
I just got one from then a few months ago.
Its nice.

Good advice. They did those for the belts in the film as well.

That is good advise, I had not thought about doing that. One more item to add to the costume tote: electrical tape.

Even though it's not movie canon, I find it more practical to clip my Covertec to the smaller belt, since those clips aren't meant for such wide belts that we Jedi use.

I just put a couple rivets on either side to reinforce the smaller belt so that it can handle the weight of my saber, and add other rivets around the rest of the belt as part of the design, one of the nice things about making your own belt for a generic Jedi.
