Unboxing Your Bridge™ Adapter

When you receive your package, you’ll find:

  • The Bridge™ Adapter
  • Red, white, and blue hardware bags
  • A tube of Loctite
  • A card with a QR code linking to the instruction manual

The detailed instruction manual includes diagrams and a hardware matrix that indicate which screws and hardware to use for your specific holster and attachment. This valuable resource can be found on the Dara Holster website, ensuring you have all the information needed for a seamless installation.

Tools Needed

Before you start, ensure you have a number 2 Phillips screwdriver on hand. This will be essential for the installation process.

Step-by-Step Installation Guide

1. Prepare the Bridge and UBL

Begin by gathering three silver posts from the white hardware bag and six of the smallest screws (letter A) from the red hardware bag. These components will be crucial for attaching the UBL to the Bridge™ Adapter.

2. Align and Install Silver Posts

Align the holes of the Bridge with the Safariland® UBL. Insert the silver posts into the Bridge with the large backs facing you. Loosely install a small Phillips head screw into each post. This initial step ensures that the posts are correctly positioned.

3. Secure the Silver Posts

Tighten the screws until the backs of the posts are approximately 1/16th below the surface of the Bridge. This can be easily done with a hand screwdriver. Make sure each post is securely in place.

4. Attach the Bridge to the Holster

Remove the screws used to secure the posts temporarily. Line up the Dara Holster with the corresponding holes on the Bridge. Apply a small dab of Loctite to each screw to prevent the hardware from loosening over time. Loosely install the screws into the holster, then tighten them slightly.

5. Final Tightening

Once all screws are lightly seated, tighten them fully. If you have a torque wrench, tighten to 25 in-lbs. Otherwise, hand-tighten with a screwdriver. This ensures a secure attachment.

6. Reattach the UBL to the Bridge

Apply Loctite to the screws and align the UBL with the Bridge. Snug the screws down to ensure all holes are aligned, then fully tighten them. This final step secures the UBL to the holster.

Ensure Longevity and Security

Remember to periodically check your hardware to ensure nothing comes loose. This routine maintenance will keep your holster securely attached and in optimal condition.
