If you have a BladeTech DOH holster, the DOH attachment holes (2 of them) will line up with the QLS fork, I had to drill the third. I had some BT pouches w/o the teklok and I had to drill one hole in there too. Also I set up a CR Speed double mag pouch and used the metal backer plate to attach the ELS fork - holy crap! The metal must be made of a super duper space age invincible material because it took forever to drill just one hole in that darn thing and ruined my drill bit.

Anyway, most of it should line up and if you have to drill a hole or two, don't be afraid of it, it's goes pretty smooth except for that last issue.

I never had any problem running my holster on ELS clips but did move over to QLS for my holsters recently. The ELS will hold them but the QLS holds them better. In my case, modification to the belt holes was required to mount the QLS plate.

Can the man mountain engineering shell caddies be attached to the els system?

Yes. I had some older ones I had to drill and tap myself but they turned out great. I could be wrong but I believe the newer ones may be easier to adapt.

I modified my DOH Singray to work with the QLS - Had to add a couple holes and screws. Made me feel more comfortable due to the weight of the pistol. Down side is I believe it now sticks out too far from the belt to be USPSA legal.

If you buy them direct from Mountain Man you can order them already set up for ELS, just screw the forks on. That's what I did, hassle free.

This is a common issue with the Bladetech DOH regardless of attachment type. Many people just put a spacer between the holster and the DOH attachment at the bottom screw. I used a rubber washer, works great.

It changes the outward leaning angle of the holster enough to make the distance legal.
