I need a Swivel

Hey y'all, I need to figure out what this swivel is in this holster. This one rotates 360 degrees but they apparently have some that only swivel forward. I have scoured the internet and have yet to turn up anything that I think is what they are using. Please, if anyone knows what this is or where I could find it I would appreciate it greatly.

From the photograph, it almost looks like it is a large heavy duty snap being used as a swivel, with a smaller snap at the top.
That isn't what was used originally, but holster swivels are very difficult to locate these days.
These swivels were installed for duty holsters to allow more comfortable seating in a vehicle, jeep, tank, etc.
Possibly a screw post with a couple washers between the holster and the belt loop could be used.
