    What's up with cheap plastic clips on holsters?

    Advertisement



    Hi guys. New to the forum here. I've got an 8830 that I carry for on-call duties at work. I have gone through 3 of the leather OEM holsters; each one has broken off at the clip, two at the big plastic button that holds the clip to the holster and one snapped off on the back of the clip itself.

    I've searched here and haven't found any reference to this being a problem or not. It happens when I have it clipped to my side. I try to remember to remove it prior to getting in my car, but if I get in a hurry or just forget, when I sit down, snap goes the clip.

    I'm not going to buy the Blackberry model again. This is ridiculous. Surely someon makes a decent holster that doesn't have such a fragile clip? I've looked on the Blackberry site and there's nothing I can find there, either.

    Am I the only one having this problem? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated (except for ones telling me to take it off when I get into the car. That one I can figure out myself; it's just putting it into sonsisten practice I'm having problems with).

    Thanks,

    ButchW

    same here I went through 3 in less then a year. The pleather wore out fairly fact, but the broken clips came because i got all 3 caught on a chair. Im clumsy when I sit down.

    If your willing to sacrifice the Leather you can always try a more durable holster. I saw one on a website that looked like it could support an elephant but still looked shiney and classy. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I would recommend that you check out the seidio 8830 belt holsters. They are phenomenal. I had a similar experience with the first belt clips I purchased for my phone. I personally never like holsters because I feel they make the phone more difficult to access quickly. I prefer plastic belt clips. Nayway, I went through 4 cheap plastic clips I purchased off of Ebay. I didn't mind at first but it was very annoying after a while. I decided to go with the Seidio holster which in my opinion is pricey but is very well made. I haven't had a belt clip problem since. I highly recommend it.
