    HELP - The clip on my holster just broke

    Advertisement



    and now I'm trying to fashion a coat-hanger wire so I can at least carry it on my belt; the plastic loops on the receiver look fine. The "clippy" thing broke off.

    Can I buy just the leather holster for an 8830?

    Any pointers would be appreciated!

    Hi Erica, my company sent it to me and I think it is a standard case for the 8830.

    OK, I've made my temporary clip and it should work until I can figure out how to get another holster.

    Here's a picture:

    I have ordered leather cases for my 8703e and 8330 on ebay. They have them and they are usually a good price.

    Ebay is a good choice I went through a one month period where I caught my holster getting in and out of the car and snapped the clip right off 4 times. I have gotten every replacement from ebay and had great luck.

    I was just asking about where the case came from because of a similar incident that happened to me. In my situation, I went to put it on the seatbelt of my chair one day and RIP! http://forums.pinstack.com/f55/belt_clip_just_came_off_casemate_case-72533/

    I don't know if anybody is interested but I fixed mine with a tie wrap and safety wire. I made a loop that my belt would fit through with a large tie wrap. I then safety wired the tie wrap to the case. I like it better than the clip. It hangs lower and I haven't had a problem with it. I've been using it over a year. I bought a new case but don't use it. I like the security better.
