3D Printable Motorola Walkie-talkie Clip

Introduction: 3D Printable Motorola Walkie-talkie Clip

About: "End of line..."

We still use multitudes of Motorola walkie-talkies at my work called TalkAbout's that use a unique belt clip that is hard to track down, priced far too high and unfortunately break way too easily. I sat down and designed my own clip using broken remains and my trusty cheap caliper. I was excited when after my 4th proto print I had a functioning 3 piece kit that seems to be working wonderfully! I wanted to try sharing it just incase someone else has an investment in these units and needs additional clips.  This fits (from what I can tell) TalkAbout's from the dawn of their creation to today's units (just bought 3 pairs of MJ270R's) and we already broke 2 of the new OEM clips...

My 3D printable kit includes the belt loop clip, plastic spring and sliding jacket that all snap together after printing and will keep your walkie close for dispatching your ever-so important RF communications (or just make it look like you have "people").

Here is the general walk-through process I used to design the clip; https://www.instructables.com/id/Basic-workflow-for-3D-design-in-Sketchup-and-3D-pr/even if you don't have a 3D printer you can join in the fun that is rapid prototyping!!
