Slide the radio in your back pocket, or glue the belt clip to the battery.

I don't really want to buy a new battery for it so I think I might have to do that

Depending on the brand of battery you may be able to take the shell off and glue another one on it. I had some junk batteries laying around and was bored and did it once. I noticed the name brand ones are hard to open but the cheapo ones will crack. If you have an interstate battery salesman near you a new battery may be cheaper than you think. The one for my firehouse hooked me up with an interstate brand battery for less than the cheap ones on ebay.

Not real familiar with that radio, so I don't know if my suggestion interferes with charging
But if it's a good battery, I'd just superglue a clip to the battery.
Buying a second clip to use with other batteries you may have is going to be much cheaper than buying another battery.
Me personally I'd go this route before I did surgery on a good battery.

You could carry the radio in a holster.

Not sure if I would suggest using superglue or JB Weld.

If the superglue/JB Weld lets go while you have the radio clipped to your belt or pocket or whatever, the whole radio falls to the ground which could obviously do some damage.

Buy a porta clip. $24 bucks, low profile, and it will outlive the battery and the radio. Or you could buy a cheaper universal holster for it. Good luck.
