Default Blackhawk Serpa question

I recently bought a Blackhawk Serpa holster for my Springfield XD .40. Included in the package was a giz-mo that I am unable to find a use for. If you know what this is and what it does, please let me know.

Thanks

I got my answer on another forum I subscribe to. It is basically a spacer that is used to support the top opening of the holster in shipping, etc. It's a throw away.

Thanks

I love my blackhawk holster I would not suggest it for a duty holster as of the ease to get it out of.

Yeah or a conceal carry holster. The reason I say it all you have to do is hit one button and it will slide out not the best holster if your fighting a individual

You can buy a lvl 3 holster but all it adds is a top closure

I had the level 3 Serpa Duty holster and i loved it. It provided more retention for my sidearm,and i could flip the hood and the index finger button in the same motion and have my firearm on target in no time flat. It had very smooth clearing and reholstering motion, and i never felt that my sidearm was vulnerable to someone trying to grab it during a physical altercation "which i was in ALOT of altercations".
