Carrying a Glock pistol Appendix Inside the Waistband (AIWB) can generate some anxiety, particularly on re-holstering. The Striker Control Device, created and patented by Tom Jones & Todd Green, provides an added level of safety when holstering.

The Gadget Striker Control Device (SCD) replaces the standard slide plate on the back of the Glock with an all-steel plate and insert. When thumb pressure is being applied to the SCD when holstering,  it blocks the movement of the striker, blocking the trigger bar and prevents the gun from firing.

Passive in operation, the Striker Control Device does not lock or interfere with the normal action of the pistol unless physical force is being purposely applied by the user. When using any normal firing grip, the SCD is not engaged and your Glock fires as normal with no additional steps needed when drawing.




Many law enforcement shooters are taught to keep pressure on the back of the Glock while holstering. This prevents the gun from being pushed out of battery by a tight holster. The SCD uses this same procedure  to provide an extra layer of safety when holstering. Not intended to replace awareness and safe gun handling, it creates an additional link in the chain to help avoid accidents.
