There are two main ways to attach the holster to the belts in ANH, the standard verison using 2 screws or rivets and the hero approach using 4 screws or rivets. This is most likely due to the heroes being the only ones to have their E-11 blasters holstered, when Han and Luke escort Chewie into the detention block. They both also have a piece of string holding their holster's tight against their thigh's..

Anyway onto the attachement, the standard way is to have the 2 leather stripes going behind the canvas belt and the rivets or screws are mounted along the lower side of the belt closest to the holster.





The hero way is for 4 rivets or screws, again with the 2 leather stripes going behind the canvas belt and the rivets or screws are spaced evenly with 2 along the upper adge and 2 along the lower edge. It look like Han has his mounted using screws and Luke uses rivets.

Here is a close-up of Han' 4 screws



Here is Luke's using 4 using large rivets




Here a good picture showing the string on the heroes holding the holster in place.





Here is a 'Rough guide' illustration for placement

Some of the troopers didnt even have holsters, so for the die hard fans who like to replicate even the ommisions - no holster for ANH stormtroopers is fine..

Those must have been very short machine screws holding the hero on for Han, I wonder why they did his different to everyone else?

Probably like most things in Star Wars it was either rushed or not much thought was put into it.. I wonder if the screws went all the way through the armour too, to hold it all up?

Interesting thought- although that would mean they would have to change it when he later wears the belt in his Han costume.

Are there any screen shots of a Stunt Helmet with a four rivet belt/holster combination?
