Tenicor USA has released an updated holster: the CERTUM3. They say it’s optimized for both appendix carry and hip carry, providing an “unprecedented level of adaptability”. That might seem like typical marketing hyperbole, except that several of us here use Tenicor holsters and are inclined to agree with any of their claims about quality. The Tenicor CERTUM3 appendix holster has an inch of ride height adjustment and 30 degrees of cant, which provides a lot of potential for “personalization”. In the market for a good Glock 43x holster, Glock 48 holster, or SIG P365 holster? Read on.
(They have rigs for bigger blasters too, by the way.)
Ya gotta like that.
Take a watch.
The CERTUM 3 is available in six sizes:
• Glock 17
• Glock 19/26
• Glock 43/43X/48
• SIG P365/365L
• SIG P32o Carry/Compact
• Smith & Wesson M&P Shield/Shield 4 in.

Here’s how the designer explains it.
The CERTUM3 is Tenicor’s take on the classic fold over inside-the-waistband holster. The streamlined profile and precision molding create a sleek, intelligently designed holster. Excess is eliminated, and the result is unencumbered and precise performance.
UNPARALLELED ADAPTABILITY | Without compromise, the CERTUM3 excels as an AIWB holster or an IWB hip carry holster. Slim, simple, and sound, the CERTUM3 is designed to give you options. The unique mounting slots for the T1 Clips allow for about 1 inch of ride height adjustment along with 30 degrees of cant adjustment. This extreme flexibility creates a holster that is equally at home behind the hip or up front carried in the appendix position.
ADJUSTABLE CAMMING BAR | For appendix carry, the CERTUM3 comes with three detachable camming bars. When cinched by the belt, the camming bar rotates the grip into the body maximizing concealment. The camming bars come in three sizes (1/4″ – 3/8″ – 1/2″) to allow for personalized adjustments for the ideal fit. Additionally, the camming bar has ride height adjustment to maximize contact with the belt.
LEAN DESIGN | The CERTUM3 is intentionally molded as a slim and durable holster. The CERTUM3 is made from thick (0.093”) and durable thermoplastic for longevity. Secure the all steel hardware with the provided thread-locker for durable long-term use.
INTEGRATED PERFORMANCE | Using our own CAD designs and precision CNC machined tooling, the CERTUM3 is designed for performance. Everything has a place and a purpose.
- Each holster is molded to our Trucise™ fit which creates a uniquely secure holster with a smooth and consistent draw.
- The mid-ride shirt guard is carefully profiled to allow for an unencumbered high thumb grip.
- The gun sits low to optimize concealment but high enough so the belt does not interfere with a full grip of the gun for consistency and speed. The height adjustment of the attachment options can be dialed in for a precise carry position.
- Profiled at the top, the CERTUM3 supports most conventional slide mounted red dot sights.
- The sight channel is tall to allow for suppressor-height sights.
- A round profiled bottom is shaped for comfort on your hip and is compatible with threaded barrels.
- The dual tension screws enable subtle adjustments and security.
PERSONALIZED PERFORMANCE | One of the biggest challenges to integrating a holster into daily life is ride height. We have carefully designed subtle and robust ride height adjustment into the CERTUM3. The attachment options carefully balance security, durability, concealment, and convenience.
