Handheld radio belt clips are a nice idea but, for many, they have several irritating drawbacks.
The main gripe is actually clipping them on and off the belt. If your belt is fairly loose it's not too difficult. However, if your belt is cinched up nice and tight, getting the clip in between your belt and body often turns into a two handed yoga exercise. And trying to get it unclipped is even worse.
Another issue is that sometimes you want the radio to run a little lower on your waist. Especially if you have an untucked shirt, get tired of the radio and/or antenna digging into your side or need to get that whip antenna to stop slapping you in the face.
So what do people tend to do? (And that includes me)
They clip the radio to the top of their pants pocket.
And what ends up happening? (Once again, including me)
Eventually your radio pops right out and goes skittering down the concrete. (Usually screen side down to add insult to injury)
So we've come up with a simple and low profile solution. Our Handheld Radio Belt Clip Hanger. AKA: "The Belt Widget".
The Belt Widget is a 1 1/4" wide heavy duty webbing loop with a black oxide steel belt loop bartacked to it. The Widget will fit up to 1 3/4" wide trouser belts and the steel loop features a nice wide opening for easy on/off clipping. With "The Belt Widget" you can now easily clip your radio on and off your belt with just one hand and be relatively sure it will be there next time you reach for it. And, your radio will also now ride lower on the belt line.
This item, as with all of our products, is Made in the USA, completely ambidextrous and requires no assembly or adjustment. It's just plain simple and works.
