I read this on their website Bil,

Included with each Universal Clipdraw are:
Six strips of tape (one required and five extras)
Six alcohol prep pads for cleaning surfaces prior to applying the tape
Four screws (two required and two extras)
One allen wrench

Guess it's nice they send some extra pieces, the tape is for folks that may want to remove the clip, but then later reinstall it so they can put the plate back on. Hopefully it works out well for you.

don't make fun of me but my grandmother taught me how to use a sewing maching when i was 5. i bought an uncle mikes IWB holster size one. compleatly took all the stiching out, changed the cant to about a 10 dergrees forward then put the gun back in figured out some sizing and re-sewed the whole thing back together. total cost $15 plus about an hour of my time while watching t.v. the P-64 fits very snug aroung the trigger to keep it from moving around. It doesn't look perfect but feels awesome when carried. Im sure there are wives out there that can do a better sew job than i did, im not and expert on the sewing machine, but it works awesome. I'll post a picture if anyone is interested. Good luck.

Pics please! I have had one of these for a while and it is even too big for my Makarov after I've stretched it out.

Here you go... you can see how the stiching lines up with the bottom of the trigger gaurd for a snug fit. i guess i could have cut off the excess but it doesn't really get in the way, and it would have been more work. :D

Here's the one I ended up buying for IWB carrying. Made in the USA, works great, $15, free shipping....

Maybe Barsony sent me the wrong holster - but my "P64" barsony iwb holster is so big my PT145 almost fits (tiny bit too snug around trigger guard) ... waaay too loose for me to carry my p64 without worrying about it sliding out. Id go leather iwb if u can find one that fits

I ran across this site today with a different type of carry. Not sure how comfortable
it would be but for a number of reasons I will have to give it a try.
Called the Smartcarry, it is probably the best undetectable way to carry I have seen
to date. Good pics too showing how it works under the pic section.

I have one of these as I've been carrying for about a year and I was looking for something for summer carry besides pocket carry (we tuck in our shirts where I work).

I've been using it for about a month and a half with a S&W 642 (with an 'oversized' grip, even), but I originally bough it for my Glock 26. It worked fine with that gun, too, but it's somewhat more comfortable with a smaller gun. I imagine the P64 would fit that bill just fine.

It does take a little getting used to as certain areas feel a bit 'crowded'. But, after a little time (no more than a few days of use, for me) you hardly notice it. Access to the gun is quite fast, as well. Much easier than I expected.

I'd say the Smartcarry is an excellent mode of carry for smaller guns. For me, the threshold is something Glock 26 sized, but others may feel comfortable with bigger or smaller guns. This will probably depend heavily on your cloths and how much room you have left in the crotch area.

Give it a try. It's turned out to be a viable option for me and has increased my options for comfortably carrying whatever gun I want.
