I've already broke two of them called Uniden and they really did not seem to care .
Personally think it is a really bad design , have had different uniden scanners since the Early Nineties and never had a belt clip break , but on the 396xt Went thru two in less then three months. Don't see the reason to get another clip other then having one when i sell the 396xt.
But really wish for a way to clip on pants fast, Leather case is nice but needs to be wore with belt.
Called Uniden today to obtain a new belt clip for my bcd 396xt and they said they are no longer available and will not be in the future .I next asked if they still produce this radio & the answer was yes. Unbelievable .Overall I have enjoyed my Uniden products over the years and promoted them,but this coupled with the reply I recently received from one of their upper management ,on a well documented complaint by others besides myself , is really driving me away . Wonder if this post will be allowed to stay?
Uniden does have the belt clip AVAILABLE. Part # sku BCKVOY--Color Black. Price is $5.88 plus shipping. You can call the Uniden parts department DRIECT at 1-800-554-3988. This clip is for the Uniden 396XT. Please let us know how you get along on this. Hope this helps you out.
I just ordered two, one of the original type and one Blue model. The blue one came in Black instead, and when you put the scanner on the clip, it snaps in if you do it right (scanner upside down then turn over) Holds the scanner much better. Before the scanner would pop out of the belt clip when I sat down. with this one it doesn't... Direct from Uniden, ordered online and had it in a few days... One happy canper..
Thanks guys . I called Uniden today @ their American customer service # 1.800.297.1023 . I will try the number you gave on Monday. I guess their like most companies, left hand doesn't know what the right is doing, lol. My clip is worn out .Thanks again.
