"Claw" accessory for AIWB carry

I have been carrying AIWB for several years. Up until now, my carry gun has always been of the sub-compact, single stack variety (i.e.- M&P Shield). I am considering a change to more of "compact" carry gun (i.e.- M&P 2.0 Compact), but am concerned about the length of the grip with regard to printing.

In looking at holsters, I am seeing some Kydex AIWB holsters with the "claw" attachment that is reportedly designed to keep the grip of the firearm closer to the skin to reduce printing. For those with experience, are these attachments helpful?

I have a Vedder IWB light tuck holster with the claw. It’s useful for appendix carry, as I’m assuming that’s what it was developed for. I found that the claw does help, but what you’re wearing is also just as helpful imo. There’s tons of YouTube vids out there that can probably do a better job explaining the claw

All of my IWB holsters now have a claw. I've found them to make quite a difference, making my G17 conceal about like a G19 without a claw, as far as printing under a t-shirt.
