Please contact our Customer Service Department at (800) 645-2537 or clear here to email us and we can provide information of a local dealer who carries Aker products.
In order to become an authorized dealer of Aker products, you must have a physical retail store and be currently engaged in selling related merchandise. If you meet those requirements, please click here to send an email with your contact and company information and one of our sales staff will walk you through the process of opening an account.
Akerleather.com is regularly updated to reflect the most current company and product information. If you cannot find your weapon in the drop-down menus, please contact our Customer Service Department at (800) 645-2537 or click here to email us and we will be happy to assist you.
Aker belts are measured by inches from the center of the buckle to the middle hole, from 28" to 48" by increments of 2". Your belt size may end up being more than your actual waist size. To ensure an accurate fit, please take a belt you currently wear and measure it from the center of the buckle to the hole that you use.
If you are planning to wear your Aker belt for concealed carry purposes, we recommend adding an additional 2" to your size measurement. Once you receive your belt, please check the fit before buckling. If you feel that it does not fit to your liking, please stop use of the belt and contact our customer service department immediately.
If you are a right-handed shooter with your primary holster worn on your right side, order the D.M.S.™ for right-hand draw. The accessory pouch will sit on your left side. If you are a left-handed shooter with your primary holster worn on your left side, order the D.M.S.™ for left-hand draw. The accessory pouch will sit on your right side. Note: the picture of each D.M.S.™ product shows the right-hand configuration.
Our D.M.S.™, or “Dual Mounting System” series is our most popular accessory line and the only one that offers two modes of carry in one product. It is Dual Mounting because it comes with a specially designed Air-Flo™ paddle AND a belt slot in the back. Remove the paddle by simply unscrewing the solid brass Chicago screws in order to slide the pouch onto your belt, for widths up to 1-3/4”.
Aker products are designed to work right out of the bag. If the holster feels tight, please keep in mind that new products made out of genuine leather are often stiff and may have a short break-in period – similar to a pair of high quality leather dress shoes.
FlatSider™ refers to our innovative system of molding that produces holsters which are perfectly flat on one side, allowing for the closest, most comfortable wear possible.
We do not sell our Comfort-Flex® or FlatSider™ shoulder rigs as individual components since each rig is specially designed as a complete set.
Aker holsters, belts, and accessories are finished and coated in such a way that no further care is necessary. We do not recommend using any oils, since this could soften the leather and cause undue wear. We use the highest quality leather available and some blemishes and imperfections are normal for true genuine leather – this only enhances the beauty and confirms the quality of your Aker Leather product.
You can order replacement paddles for $11.50 on our website. Extra screws, grommets, washers, and other replacement parts can be ordered by phone at (800) 645-2537.

Out of stock products can take 30-45 days for shipment.
We do NOT charge any order placed by credit card until your order is ready to ship. Once you submit an order, our payment processing service verifies your purchase. This verification may show up on your account temporarily, but, again, your card is NOT charged until shipment. After 30 days, we may require additional verification, and our Customer Service Department may call or email you so we can get your order charged and shipped out immediately!
If you need to change or cancel any order, you must notify us immediately either by phone or email. Any order that has already been shipped is not available for cancellation and you must contact us for a return authorization number.
