The Endura has the Native 5 / Police clip, period. The reason being that (lanyard hole or not), it allows access to the Pivot screw for tip down carry, since the Endura/Police pivot screw is slightly raised and adjusted on the clip side. The PM2/3 has a flat pivot screw which can be covered by the clip. Which is OK, since the PM2/3 D-shape of the Pivot is on the clip side, adjustment is done on the other side.youmakemehole wrote: ↑Sat Apr 06, 2019 7:12 amYou are all very welcome, your simple gestures of appreciation have made it all worthwhile!
I believe the Caribbean has the same 3 hole pattern as the PM2/3's and Delicas etc. Also I wanted to just say that this pattern is used on clips with lanyard holes and also clips without. Whether or not your clip has a hole in it should not affect the compatibility of the clip with knives using the same screw pattern, the only thing is that you will not have a lanyard hole if you don't use a drilled out clip with a knife that requires one. I think itd probably a good idea to further specify which of those models would normally come with those sorts of clips so i'll add notation on end of each model.
I've also ended up ordering a Tenacious style clip for my Autonomy 2. Guess I will find out soon if it fits
Hmm.. yeah, some of the ones up there are there just because they looked like they belonged from a picture. It would make sense for Spyderco to want to minimize the number of clip types though, I'd imagine it'd help save on costs as well as other things.The Deacon wrote: ↑Sat Apr 06, 2019 8:11 amThere may be more than one size "hourglass" 3 hole clip. As an example, I would be surprised if the SS Dragonfly and Cricket use the same size clip as the Delica, Endura, 2nd generation Stretch 1, and Stretch 2.
Prior to the introduction of the hourglass clip, there was a multitude of different 3 hole clips. Various lengths, various widths, various hole patterns, and sometimes clips identical in every respect other than screw hole size.
As for the "other" category, IMHO, the best looking Spyderco clip ever was the 3 hole clip on the C27 Jess Horn even though putting a clip on a knife like the C27 was a travesty.
Some of those on the list are safe approximations, such as the Matriarch 2, I'm probably at least 95% sure its a match just based off intuition, some are not so safe approximations as well though like you are saying. Some of the ones I am also fairly certain about based off research and hearsay, for instance the Rhino and 940 I know will line up as you can find a handful of sources that would confirm that.The Deacon wrote: ↑Sun Apr 07, 2019 2:38 pm
Even though photographs appear to show that two clips to have visually similar hole patterns that does not mean they will be interchangeable. Without seeing and measuring the actual clips you have no idea of their relative sizes, or of the diameter of the screws used with them.
