This Vehicle Mount Adapter is intended to be used with the Vehicle Handgun Mount (SS item # 88283) for vehicles with no gap, a covered gap, or very thick gap edge beneath the steering column. The adapter also allows the mount to be used on awkward column designs, such as older antique/classic cars. Wrap the adapter strap around the entire steering column, buckle and tighten. The adapter bypasses the steering wheel gap attach point and is adjustable to position the Vehicle Holster Mount beneath the steering column for clearance to draw weapon without driving inteference. The special, thin metal D-ring at the bottom of the adapter strap accepts the hook of the Vehicle Handgun Mount as if it were the typical gap beneath the steering column. Same function, same location, unobtrusive, problem solved.
