Hardware is hardware, right? You be the judge. Our hardware is similar to everything else out there. While we’d love to say it is all U.S. made, that is sadly not the case as common hardware is just not made domestically except for very special applications. So, our oval head 8-32 screws are probably made on the same equipment in the same overseas factory as the next guy’s. But we do take one extra step with our hardware that sets it apart from the competition. Unlike most hardware distributors, we do not sell black oxide coated hardware. While black oxide is a decent finish, there is a better option. We have all of our hardware Melonited by a U.S. metal treatment company. MELONITE is a thermochemical treatment for improving surface properties of metal parts. In addition to generating a deep black color that is a part of the surface of the metal, it also hardens the surface of the part to approximately 70 on the Rockwell scale. This process offers unparalleled abrasion and rust resistance.
We take this step not just to be different, but to offer you the finest hardware available for your project or product. And we keep our prices at or below what you can buy black oxide hardware for. So, is all hardware created equal? Try DIY hardware and see the difference for yourself.

I have been building holsters for 2 years now. And for the quality and price you can not beat these. The finish is great and helps with that finished look. And I don't believe I have had a single defect in all the batches I have received.

DIY holster is the best. My order got messed up and they shipped me someone else's order, but I called them and they took care of it and shipped out my order the same day.

My review is really for the company more than one product.
These guys are great they have bent over backwards to make sure I had what was needed for the last year. They are very professional and always helpful. I will always use diyholsters.

Ive tryed so many brands of Chicago screws. Some are too soft, and strip easily. Some look black in pics, but arent true black. Some are black, but just a thin layer of paint, which scrapes off before your done making it. These are non of those. They stay black, and they're definitely strong. I wish i would have used these a long time ago. They are the best posts you can buy in black. Oh ya, this is my 3rd order, ever order was free shipping if its only hardware, and all came on the 3rd day.

Just getting into making holsters. Was just what I wanted. Finish is pretty tuff and seems to be lasting
