The Blacksmith-Labs differentiation are our ultra-durable metal alloy belt clips. Smartphone holsters, whether they are made out of plastic or leather, typically comes with a plastic belt clip or bent sheet metal belt clip. With the former, plastic do experience wear and tend to break over time. And with the latter, bent sheet metal belt clip are simple constructions that cannot withstand repeated force exerted in the same direction, and would deform the belt clip making it loose when worn on a belt.
