Anybody have any info on this bit of kit?

I just purchased this after seeing it in this post.  I have never been able to get my Safariland holsters mounted at the angle I want.  This seemed like the solution I was looking for.  Ordering and shipping from the company was GTG.  No real instructions on how to put it together though.  Couldn't find any on youtube either.  Looked at the pics on their website and got it together no problem.  Did one dry fire session with and was very happy.  Getting rid of that forward cant made a big difference in my grip out of the holster.  I was finding the dot everytime and draws seemed to take less mental efffort (I have really been concentrating on getting that high grip before pulling gun out of holster).

First live fire session was this afternoon.  Things went well.  Prior to installing the True North Concepts adapter, I was working hard to get draws down below 1 second.  After a Jedi class, I had kinda stalled out in the high teens with consistent accuracy.  I could really push the hand speed and get below 1 second, but the accuracy was not there.  Today, with the adapter the first couple draws were right at 1.03-1.00.  Pushed a little and was getting good hits in the low .9's.

Product definitely allows you to position the holster in the position you want.  It is very adjustable.  The plate feels stout in the hand and all holes lined up perfectly with my Safariland kit.  All included hardware seems to be of high quality as well.  The plate is a little longer than what I need (I run mid-ridish length), but has not caused me any problems yet.  I am able to squat and move without it poking me anywhere.  I will get a better idea of this on my next tactical training day.  

My only concern with the product at this point is all the extra hardware this adds.  They do include a generous tube of some sort of loctite, but little screws do tend to come loose at the most inopportune times.  I will definitely keep an eye on this.  One of the pictures on their site shows the product being used with a leg strap.  Didn't feel a need for one doing flat range stuff, but I threw an old one on just to play with when doing more dynamic stuff.
