I have never liked the plastic clips they put on amatuer radios. Had a VX1 that Yaesu replaced the cheep plastic clip for me. I love metal belt clips. I have an Alinco DJ-X10 that has an outstanding metal belt clip. Had the G5, same setup, IC W32, again metal. The belt clip on my 170 doesn't want to come off of my belt. Motorola type clips need to be on motherola radios. If I want my radio to be real secure, it goes into a leather holster on a hefty leather over the belt clip. I was just wondering because I am thinking of getting another 60 and that worthless clip on the radio doesn't work with any of my a/c vent holders.Make a metal clip that will attach to a 1.5" double think gunbelt, or a 2" duty belt and I'd gladly pay for that.
