• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

:confused: Was looking at the 'swivel' beltclip accessory, how does this mount to the PRO-668 scanner? Not enough info on the site. Is it a total back (top) replacement (4 screws out, replace back, 4 screws back)? :confused:

From page 11 of the Whistler WS1080 owner's manual (same scanner as the Radio Shack PRO-668) this is how you install the swivel belt clip:

"Swivel clip allows the scanner to move
with you and easily move it out of the
way without unclipping it from your
belt. To attach the Swivel clip to the
scanner; align the belt clip grooves to
the slots on the back of the scanner.
Slide the clip down until it clicks in
place. To remove the belt clip, pull
back on the small tab and slide the clip
upward."

I bought one of the swivel belt clips from Whistler for my 668. It installs the same way the original non-swivel belt clip installs. Just slides in, and clicks into place.

...I've placed my order...

My order for the swivel belt clip for my PRO-668 shipped from Whistler today via Priority Mail so I should have it in a few days. It appears to be a much better belt clip option compared to the standard one that comes with the PRO-668. Thankfully Whistler has these available separately for sale as Radio Shack no longer sells any replacement parts for their scanners.

If anybody is holding off ordering, you only have until August 31st to get in on the free shipping deal from Whistler. It was nice of them to offer that with the implementation of their new website.

:) Thanks for the detailed reply! I did not notice the small clip was also the swivel. The fact the picture included the rear of the radio misled me somewhat. An actual picture of the complete assembly would have made it clearer. :)
