Short Mic Holder Testimonials


Have a testimonial? Please visit our Contact page.

A Short Mic Holder was sent to our department for me to test and evaluate. Upon receiving the sample I immediately noticed how simple yet sturdy the design is. The black neutral color blends well with our dark navy colored uniforms.

On a recent K-9 track I noted that this device securely held my radio mic in place. Not one time did my mic shift or did I have to reposition it. Something I could not say before. It also performs flawlessly on routine patrol.

I no longer have to worry about my mic coming out of place or off my uniform. This effective and simple product just flat works.

Hi Marvin.

First off, thanks for creating a great product. My boys love using it. It has saved a couple of them from losing a fight....

Thanks,

Officer Tutino

I have tested the Short Mic Holder on duty and found it to be the best holder around. I wear my mic over my right shoulder from behind where it faces downward. I have always had the issue of my mic pulling off of my shirt and flying back behind me. Since buying the Short Mic Holder I have not had that problem once. The best part of this mic holder is it does not require being attached to a button. I tested two other holders which require being attached to a button and I was afraid of the button being pulled off of the shirt. After trying the button holder for one hour I gave up on it and went back to the Short Mic Holder. I really believe this a great piece of gear which every officer should have to ensure when you need your radio it's there for you. Thank you for your great product and customer relations.

I looked all over the Internet for a solution to my problem and I finally found it with the Short Mic Holder. I wrap my mic around my back and over my opposite shoulder and then clip it upside down just below the top button of my uniform on the material that covers the zipper. Because of the angle and the minimal material to hold the mic in place, the mic would come loose on multiple occasions while engaging in a variety of duties. I did not want to change the position of my mic as I had gotten used to it's location and did not want to mess with my muscle memory. That's where the Short Mic Holder comes into play. Not only does it keep the mic from dangling if it comes unclipped, it actually puts enough pressure on the mic to keep it clipped. I've put the Short Mic Holder to work through multiple scenarios while on the job and it's has proven it's worth! You can't beat the price and although it is such a simple design, it is ingenious! I recommend the Short Mic Holder to anyone that wears a shoulder mic, no matter how they clip it or where.

I have been using the Short Mic Holder for years and I love it. I have been in several foot pursuits, or physical altercations where the product kept the mic in front of me when I needed it. During those situations I revert to muscle memory, and luckily when I reached for my chest (where I attach my mic) it was there even though the mic itself unclipped from my uniform. Easily the best $5 +/- you will spend on your gear!

Officer Jon G.

I received my Short Mic Holder and got to use it through my first weekend. I LOVE IT! This is by far the best purchase I have made since joining the Sheriff’s Office! Thank you so much for your help and persistence with everything! I will be recommending this to my whole squad!

Officer L. Hall
Orange County Sheriff's Department, Orlando, FL

I've been using the Short Mic Holder for a few years now and it's great to secure the mic, not only if in a LE altercation, but in Bike Patrol, Horse Patrol, ATV, Wildland Fire, and Search and Rescue. Thanks for a great and affordable product.

...we are VERY pleased with the performance of the product! I have had a few officers come to me requesting a new one because they lost theirs. That, to me, speaks volumes of the product. It gives everyone a peace of mind, they have one less thing to think about when things go south.

Thank you very much for your product and your commitment to your son and officer safety!

I have used one of these every day since 2007. I was given one as a test item by one of my supervisors...I just received my second Short Mic Holder. I wore my first one out! Because I trust it so much I had to get another!!! This has saved my ass in several foot chases and fights.

I just received the Short Mic Holder. I've been using it for about a week and it works great! Awesome product.

Thanks again.

I am with the Ballard County, KY, Sheriff's Office. I was going to pay with my deptartment credit card, but I decided to pay personally and give all the full-time officers in my department a Short Mic Holder.  We had an incident in October where one of our officers was fighting with an armed robbery suspect that had already assaulted another officer, and he could not talk to anyone about his status because his lapel mic came off his shirt. Since that day, I have been thinking about what we needed to do. We have had your brochure since 2008, and I kept it in my desk when we should have done this years ago!

Ballard County Sheriff


One of the best products I've ever used. Truly a life saver. Thank you guys. Be safe.

The Short Mic Holder was recommended to me by a friend. I used one for several years as a security guard. When I got hired as a Police Officer in California, I brought the device with me. In my second week on the job, I got into a foot pursuit with a convicted felon. Unbeknownst to me at the time, the felon was carrying a fully-loaded revolver in the front of his pants. During the ensuing fight, I reached for my radio mic, which had come unclipped from my uniform. Thanks to the Short Mic Holder my radio mic was still hanging where it should be. I was able to call for assistance and get the suspect into custody before he could utilize his gun. The Short Mic Holder prevented a bad situation from getting worse. I highly recommend this life-saving device!

The first Short Mic Holder I used for 6 years on duty, in many fights and foot chases, and it was amazing. I lost my Short Mic Holder and just recently bought a new one.

Marvin,

The Short Mic Holder works perfectly with my uniform. It's kind of magic; after several foot pursuit struggles during this past month my mic was on in the same place.

I made a review on a French police forum and I will send an email to a French police magazine in a few days.

God Bless,

Marvin,

Please ship 50 Short Mic Holders....

We really love the product.  This is our second order.

Cpl. Matthew Minard

I spoke to you on the phone this afternoon about my Mic holder needing replacement. I think you have an excellent product. I have been using it since 2008, as have many other officers in our county. Your product makes it easier to access your microphone when you need it the most and I think it contributes to the safety of police officers.

Sincerely,

Marvin,

 

I have been a Police Officer for 35 years and I’m still working patrol. My cohorts have tagged me with the moniker  “the gadget man”.  I have tried practically every product made for police officers from lighted pens to steering wheel clipboards, etc.  I came across the Short Mic Holder from reading about it in a police technical magazine.   This by far is the most useful piece of equipment I have.  I even gave it as gifts to my fellow officers in my squad.  Now I have officers from my department as well as neighboring agencies asking how to get one.   Several of my recipients of the Short Mic Holder have told me they cannot believe how they got along without it.  They relate that on several foot chases and physical confrontations this simple tool has saved their ass because they can communicate quicker.  In this profession our survival is predicated on reliable equipment and access to them.

Our Department first ordered Short Mic Holders about 5 years ago and issued them to every officer. At that point in my career my microphone had shaken loose from my shirt countless times. Since receiving the Short Mic Holder I can tell you that my microphone has never fallen from my shirt and was always right where I expected and needed it to be. I have used the same holder for years and it has never failed me.

No one should wear a shoulder mic without one.

 

Thanks,

I work with the Topeka Police Department in Kansas. I bought one for me on the first order and I really liked it; so, this order of 12 are Christmas presents for the officers that work in my zone. Thanks for a great product!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for this product. A coworker showed me this and I love it.

Marvin, 

The mic holders arrived Friday. I'm really looking forward to using it and not to mention the added security it provides. Thank you so much for the fast shipping. I'm going to put the product info forms you sent in my squad room at work so hopefully other Deputies will realize their value. Again sir, thank you so much and please stay safe.

Thanks,

This is my second Short Mic Holder. The elastic on the first one I purchased in 2008 has loosened up.  I had several scrapes that I've been in and your mic holder has always retained my mic. It has come unclipped from my shirt but has always been secured by your mic holder. 
 
Thank you for the great product.

Hi Marvin.

I work for Montgomery County Sheriff's Dept. in PA. Last Friday while responding to a fight outside, one of our deputies mics came unclipped from his shirt and wrapped around his legs and he went flat on his face. I was using your mic holder and it never moved. I'm going to inform my department about your product and hopefully they will purchase them from you. Thanks again for a great product and a life-saver.

Hello Marvin.

Thank you so much coming up with a great design. This Short Mic Holder is a life saver. After our phone conversation, I remembered I was in a short foot pursuit. When I reached for my mic it wasn't there. My Short Mic Holder stopped it from falling. I was able to relocate the mic and give out my location. 

Again, thanks for all you've done....

...I have used your holder on several shifts. I think it's great. My mic hasn't moved once. It's amazing how something so simple could work so well.

I recently ordered 3 Short Mic Holders for myself and two co-workers. After using them for approx. one week I ordered more. I think you guys have a great product here and it really WILL (if it hasn't yet) save an officer's life.

Approx. one month ago I got into a short foot chase that resulted in my shoulder mic getting knocked off and broken. After that incident I did some research to check for similar products like yours. I must say your product is the one that made the most sense along with being durable.

GREAT PRODUCT!!!!

Ofc. Joseph Dusovic

Marvin,

It has worked quite well and I have shown it to several of my co-workers who are interested in it. I noticed the other day that the outer band on one side where it connects to the plastic piece is starting to fray a bit but it does not seem to be affecting the integrity of the Short Mic Holder. I have found at times that the clip of my mic has separated from my shirt but I wouldn’t have noticed without looking down at it because the Short Mic Holder has held it in place so well. Overall, it has been a great product and you will probably have some business from members of our department. 

Thanks,

Officer Mark DeSantis
Livonia Police Department
Livonia, Michigan

UPDATE:

Marvin, I received the new Short Mic Holder last Saturday [even though I didn't ask for a new Short Mic Holder]. Thank you very much. Now, along with praising your product to my co-workers (as well as other officers I run in to) I will make sure they know about your business ethic.  

Marvin Short, 

I received the Short Mic Holder and it works great. I appreciate you sending us one. I have shown it to many other officers and departments.  I am hoping they will order some from you. I have given them the brochures you sent me. Thanks again.

Dear Mr. Short, 

The Short Mic's are working out great.  Everyone who has used them have commented on their innovation...I am also proud of the inclusion of your son Michael on the Law Enforcement Officer's Memorial.  He paid the ultimate price for a police officer and we as a nation should never forget that.

God Bless you and your family.

Hello, 

I have received the Short Mic Holder and I’ve tried it out. I like the product and have demonstrated it to the officers of my department. I have suggested to them that they get a list of who may be interested in obtaining one and we’ll put together a group order... 

Mike Robillard
Lieutenant
Wrentham Police Department


Mr. Short, 

...I happened to be at our station yesterday afternoon and was stopped by one of our officers while he was operating our patrol wagon.  We do not have cages in our cruisers so we are not allowed to transport prisoners.  All transportation of prisoners has to be done in our van.  This officer’s primary duties involve handling arrested individuals from the scene of the arrest to the station for processing.  He informed me that he had received my e-mail in regards to the mic holder and immediately purchased one.  He then informed me that he had numerous altercations with individuals after having your product on his uniform.  He stated that the Short Mic Holder worked perfectly.  I told him that I had to reply to you and he wanted me to tell you how impressed he is of the Short Mic Holder.

I have been able to use the 
Short Mic Holder several times while performing additional patrols.  I have not had to test the capabilities of the Short Mic Holder due to not having many physical confrontations with anyone.  I have to say that I am impressed over the design and how well it stands up to what I have done to test it.  I have conducted several impromptu scenarios with officers while wearing the Short Mic Holder and have not had my mic come free during the mock struggles.  I have been including the information on your product in my safety bulletin that is sent through our department on a regular basis.  I’ve expressed numerous times to our officers how vital it is to have control of any situation you’re involved in.  Your product is an excellent tool that aids in situations that are already hectic enough.  Not having to worry about your equipment while attempting to perform your duties is a great benefit to any officer.  I am hoping that several more of our officers take advantage of your product.  Thank you again for your product.

Officer Paul Letourneau
Worcester Police Department
Training Division


Mr. Short: 

The officer I had testing it does like it and it actually did come into use during a foot chase he recently had.  Being a very small department, I would like to request 4 more if possible...

We received two of the Short Mic Holders to test and evaluate in the mail. The deputies that are using the holder are pleased, and glad the radio mics do not fall during foot chases.

Thanks again.

Marvin, 

I wanted you to know that I received your package today. I gave one of the Short Mic Holders to a friend of mine that works for the Missouri Department of Conservation . His name is Sean Grubber. He stated that he was going to show it to his head boss. He liked it and couldn't wait to use it. There is approximately 200 conservation agents in Missouri . Hopefully they will like them and order one for every officer. Hope this helps you out I will let you know when I give any other departments one of the Short Mic Holders. 

Your Friend, 

Deputy Ben Burch


Mr. Short, 

We have evaluated the 
Short Mic Holders and my officers love them.  I would like to order 100 for our department.

I’ve been using the Short Mic Holder for nearly a year now and love it.  I’ve been in numerous altercations and my mic stays put.  Recently, my  young son helped with the laundry and found the Short Mic Holder made a great toy.  Needless to say, it vanished.  I promptly had one re-ordered and it arrived today!  I’m back to feeling normal now!  Thanks for a great tool! 

Dana Miller, Police Officer
Valentine Police Department


 Marvin, 

What an honor to have your son’s name added to the memorial.  We will also have several of our deputies traveling to the ceremony in Washington DC this year. 

I plan on request funds to purchase approximately 40 of your Short Mic Holders. I have also included Captain Torres in this email in the event our Patrol Division has an interest in doing the same. 

Take Care,

Marvin,

I spoke with one of my sergeants who is testing the 
Short Mic Holder and he said that several of the officers are interested in using one.  As a result, please send me one dozen, along with the invoice. 

Thanks,

Dear Marvin,

Your Short Mic Holder worked as advertised; a great product and a great safety item. I will be contacting you to purchase one for all of my Officers here at RRPD. Thanks so much for your follow up.

Sir, 

I had my officer’s evaluate the mic holder while on their patrols.   They all agreed that the

Thanks for bring this idea to our attention.

Mr. Short, 

I had one of our officers T & E the Short Mic Holder and he found it to be a good tool for Patrol.  I will post the information for purchasing in the Roll Call Room.  Our officers receive their uniform allowances at the end of January so hopefully they will take advantage of the information. 

Captain Terry Bennington

Good Morning Marvin. 

In one instance, I lost the ability to communicate with the dispatcher during a struggle I had with a suspect. I was trying to arrest the individual when my microphone detached from my uniform shirt.  I was given your microphone holder to test so I could prevent this from reoccurring again.  Unfortunately (or fortunately), I have not been in a physical struggle since; however, on several occasions I have tried to remove my radio from my belt area.  As I set my radio down and I forgot about removing the microphone from the holder, your attachment held the entire weight of the radio as it dangled from my person. 

I have no doubt your holder will not only keep a hand microphone in place but it seems to hold the weight of the entire radio as well (something possible during an incident and unexpected).

Ofc. Tait Thomas
Miramar, Florida


Hi Marvin,

I recently tested your microphone holder.  I used the product for roughly a week.  This is a product you do not appreciate until you actually get into a situation where your most important piece of equipment (RADIO) has fallen from your reach.  The holder was easily inserted over my microphone and through my button opening.  I was surprised at how the microphone was secured to the shirt, I was skeptical about this working.  After a week of wear it became apparent that this product was durable and almost necessary for keeping my microphone attached to my uniform.  In the scope of my duties I ride a bicycle for two to three hours daily and normally in the process of a week my microphone would come unclipped daily.  During my trial week I am happy to inform you that my microphone stayed securely attached to my uniform all week! 

Thank you for the opportunity to use your product. 

Brent Steffan
Miramar, Florida


Mr. Marvin Short, 

I received some very positive feedback from the patrol officer that did the trial run of your product.  He was very satisfied with the product and highly recommended it for our officers.  It was also made aware to me that while we have recently transitioned to some new radios, there are only a handful of officers using the lapel mic at this time...I would like to thank you for sharing the product with us and for all of the hard work done by you and your staff with the ultimate goal of keeping our law enforcement officers safe. 

Thank You Again.

Thank you again.

Hello Marvin,

I am with LAPD down at Olympic Division.  With the issuance of the new rovers we received, having a Short Mic Holder is an option.  The only problem was (as you figured out) keeping it in place during foot pursuits, uses of force, etc.  A friend of mine gave me one and everyone has been asking for one.

Thanks for a great product.

First of all, I just want to say how pleased I am with the Short Mic Holder...I want to order another one for my friend.

Mr. Short, 

I want to responded to you and inform you that I did receive my Short Mic Holder. Also, I have been passing the Short Mic Holder around to different officers and so far, I have only received positive comments. I will be in touch with you, and again, thank you for all the help.

Hello Mr. Short.

All I can say is wow...an amazing product that serves a purpose.  I am in the process of gathering orders and plan on placing an order either tomorrow or Monday.  I appreciate the opportunity you gave me to evaluate the product.  When I explain it to the guys and let them wear it, they all have the same response, "When are you placing an order?"  I personally have had experiences that I can relate to when my radio mic went flying off of my shirt while fighting someone.  Because of your son's vision and your dedication, this product will save lives.  Thanks for everything and my order will be coming soon.

Mr. Short,

I am Officer Cataldi from the Glenolden Police. I am the one using the Short Mic Holder you provided to Chief Donohue. I personally love it because when I am running, my mic doesn’t fall off as it always did when I did not have this mic holder. I think anyone who uses a mic should have one of these holders. 

Thank you,
Officer Brooke Cataldi


Mr. Short,

I wanted to take the time to write this testimony for your product. I would like
officers to know about this simple but great tactical device. First of all, Mr. Short
was a fantastic person to deal with. His company sent us the Short Mic Holder to
test and evaluate. It arrived in just a couple days after speaking to him on the
telephone. It wasn't long after inserting the mic holder and buttoning my epilet that
I realized how much better this product was over all the other products I had tried
in the past. The mic stays put, right where you need it, and doesn't pull on the
uniform. In the past, it seemed every day, the mic would fall to the ground or at
least dislodge and swing around my legs. Now, I am very secure with where my
mic is and know it will be where it is suppose to be when I need it.

You have a great product that can be used by everyone, from Law Enforcement,
Paramedics, Firefighters and EMA. It would work great for Military Police and our
fantastic military units worldwide especially at the "Tip of the Spear".

THE MIC HOLDER HAS ALREADY PROVEN ITSELF ON THE JOB FOR ME; I'VE ALWAYS HAD TO ADJUST MY MIC OR RECLIP IT ON MY EPULATE. THERE HAS BEEN MANY TIMES I'VE HAD IT END UP SWINGING AT MY SIDE TRYING TO GET HOLD OF IT. I'VE ACTUALLY HAD TO GET USED TO (NOT) WORRYING ABOUT IT SINCE I OBTAINED YOUR PRODUCT. THIS LITTLE TOOL HAS RELIEVED A LOT OF STRESS ON THE JOB. ANYONE IN LAW ENFORCEMENT KNOWS THAT EVERY LITTLE BIT COUNTS. I WILL BE PURCHASING 5 MORE FOR MY OFFICERS. AGAIN, IT'S A TOOL I WOULDN'T BE WITHOUT NOW THAT I HAVE IT.

Certainly the Short Mic Holder is an excellent and inexpensive safety tool.  After seeing and purchasing it at a conference several years ago, it has eliminated the radio mic from ever dropping to an out of reach distance.  It is a very clever and perfect tool that should be used when radio communication can save a life.

Marvin,

Excellent Product: The Short Mic Holder worked great. I felt confident and I didn't have to think about loosing my mic.

Marvin, 

You sent a fax to our department and an officer requested a sample.  It looked like a great and very useful product.  The officer you sent the sample to raved about it and thought it was ingenious.  The rest of us purchased it.

Hello,

My Name is Jeremy Cochran and I work for Kings Daughters Medical Center in Ashland, KY. I just wanted to take the time to say thank you, and say that this is an awesome product that has already helped keep my mic in place in a foot pursuit, and with several combative people.  I have also given all of the other mic holders out to officers I work with and they love them as well.  I would like for our department to be added to your list of departments using the Short Mic Holder.  Once again, thank you and stay safe.

KDMC Security Officer


Mr. Short,

I happened to be at our station yesterday afternoon and was stopped by one of our officers while he was operating our patrol wagon.  We do not have cages in our cruisers so we are not allowed to transport prisoners. All transportation of prisoners has to be done in our van.  This officer’s primary duties involve handling arrested individuals from the scene of the arrest to the station for processing.  He informed me that he had received my e-mail in regards to the mic holder and immediately purchased one. He then informed me that he had numerous altercations with individuals after having your product on his uniform.  He stated that the holder worked perfectly.  I told him that I had to reply to you and he wanted me to tell you how impressed he is of the Short Mic Holder.

I have been able to use the Short Mic Holder several times while performing additional patrols.  I have not had to test the capabilities of the holder due to not having many physical confrontations with anyone.  I have to say that I am impressed over the design and how well it stands up to what I have done to test it.  I have conducted several impromptu scenarios with officers while wearing the holder and have not had my mic come free during the mock struggles.  I have been including the information on your product in my safety bulletin that is sent through our department on a regular basis. I’ve expressed numerous times to our officers how vital it is to have control of any situation you’re involved in. 

Your product is an excellent tool that aids in situations that are already hectic enough. Not having to worry about your equipment while attempting to perform your duties is a great benefit to any officer.  I am hoping that several more of our officers take advantage of your product.  Thank you again for your product.

I’ve been using the Short Mic Holder for nearly a year now and love it.  I’ve been in numerous altercations and my mic stays put.  Recently, my  young son helped with the laundry and found the mic holder made a great toy.  Needless to say, it vanished.  I promptly had one re-ordered and it arrived today!  I’m back to feeling normal now!  Thanks for a great tool!

I heard about your product from other people at my agency who testified this product really works. I am employed by a law enforcement agency, and one of my biggest issues is my mic keeps falling off during altercations with suspects. People at my work who currently use this product recommended it to me. They also commented on how cheap the price was as well.

Thank you for making a simple but useful product.

Hello Mr. Short,

I’ve been using the Short Mic Holder regularly and I’m very pleased. I always know where the mic is and the problem of it popping loose getting in and out of the unit has disappeared. Easy to use, simple construction, seems pretty sturdy so I expect it’ll last a long time...

Dear Mr. Short: 

Thank you for letting us know about your product. I have a DVD of one of my officers getting shot on a traffic stop. I will send it to you, when he runs back in front of the camera, his microphone is dragging behind him, he can not get to it to call for help. Your product would have prevented that. [Chief Brooks has ordered Short Mic Holders for all of his Patrol Officers.]

Hello,

I am a Whittier Police Reserve Officer and I was working the other day and got a call of a shoplifter at the local shopping center. As I was pulling up to the front of the store, the guy came out. I confronted him, and he started to fight me. I didn’t know it at the time, but he was pulling on my mic. He was unable to pull it off my shirt and I was able to call for backup. After he was put in the unit I noticed that my mic clip was off my shirt but the short mic was still holding onto the mic...I was able to handcuff him after I got him on the ground.

Thanks,
Gilbert Ceniceros


Marvin,

Just wanted to pass this along to you.  If you remember I purchased several mic holders from you last year for the my guys on patrol and gave each of them one.  Well, tonight, one of my officers went to a domestic disturbance and got into a violent altercation with one of our drug dealers (prior prison sentence for violent crimes) at the scene.  The officer's badge, name plate and several other items were torn from his uniform.  However, the only thing that was not torn was his short mic holder that secured his lapel mic so he could call for help.  After speaking with the officer after the incident he was very grateful he was wearing the short mic holder.

I have seen several of my officers use the Short Mic Holder on a daily basis. I personally endorse this product and have found it to be tactically innovative.

Thank you for the short mic holder I have used it and I have put up the brochures and given the cards to fellow deputies and officers so hopefully you will be seeing some orders coming from my area. My co-workers are always grabbing at my mic trying to get it to come off just to see if it will and so far they have been unable to so I thank your son for an excellent product.

Mr. Short,

This product worked great, as you know we have foot pursuits on a daily basis and are constantly running or hiking through rugged terrain. The Short Mic Holder did its job every single time. I recently was forced to switch to a tactical mic because I now work night operations and our service issued mic was not practical. I gave two Mic Holders to other agents who are very satisfied with your product too.

Thank you.

Federal Agent Flores
U.S. Border Patrol

Thank you for your product. Several co-workers wear them currently and I, seeing the obvious wisdom behind the concept, can't even begin to imagine how I have worked so long without one. A small pamphlet or brochure used to be posted in our briefing room. It isn't there anymore but I remember seeing it and fished around the internet long enough to finally find you. Thank you again.

Dear ShortMicHolder.com:

I have used the short mic holder for approximately 9 months. I work in a very rural area of Los Angeles County where I heavily rely on the ease and immediate use of my handheld radio. Recently I was on patrol with a deputy currently on patrol training. It was their first use of force and the fiercest fight of my career. The 3rd-strike suspect was heavily under the influence and did not want to go to jail. The fight started standing and ended in all-out grappling brawl. When the incident was Code-4, the trainee looked at me and asked, "Sir, look at your mic." The mic stayed attached to my shirt and was hardly out of place; they were astonished. I told them what I use to keep my mic where I need it. The shortmicholder is a must when I suit up each day.

Regards,

[anonymity requested]


Marvin,

I just wanted to say thanks for a great product. The Officer that I gave the mic holder to loves it. It has already saved his mic several times from falling to the ground while arresting a suspect.

Marvin,

Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. I have worn the short mic holder since the day it arrived. I have been very pleased with it. I have told all the guys with in my department about it and several from other departments around me. I have given all but one of your cards out. Your son had a great idea with this item I am glad you continued on with it after his death. Please keep it safe out there.

Thanks again.

This invention is invaluable! The design holds the shoulder mic perfectly in place, but it doesn't add any inconvenience or discomfort to the uniform. It is a genius method to keep one of the most important pieces of my gear securely in place. This should be a part of everyone's uniform!

Thanks,

Police Officer Jeff Angermeyer

I wanted to touch base with you and give you some feedback. I was arresting a drunk driver the other day after he had crashed and was overtwice the legal limit BAC. Upon doing so a brief altercation occurred and my mic was dislodged from Shirt and was caught by you invention I was wearing. I like the way it works and I have posted your information on our PBA bulletin Board in H.Q.

Be Safe.

John Dapkins Jr. #29

Dear Mr. Short,

I just wanted to express how much I enjoy using the Short Mic Holder. I received the 
Short Mic Holder from my Chief several months ago to try out. Before I received the it, I had problems with my mic coming unhooked from the front of my uniform and hanging behind me during different incidents. Since having the Short Mic Holder, I have been in several hands on incidents. During these incidents I felt very secure in knowing if I needed to call for assistance, that my mic was still there. Now, most of the officers at my agency are using the Short Mic Holder. Again, I just wanted to thank you for helping me and other officers feel more safe on the street.

R.Young.
City of Graham Police Dept., TX

The mic cord holder that I tested was very efficient. It definitely kept the mic from falling while running.

P.O. Herrington #73
Voorhees Twp. Police, NJ

I was delighted to receive our sample in the mail today and was very pleased with the quality of the product. It is definitely everything that you said it would be. It will definitely enhance the safety of my deputies and I will insist that those deputies using lapel mics wear it.

Sheriff Ron Ridley
Hodgeman County Sheriff, Kansas


I was told to make contact with you. I have been so busy with work and kids. I received 2 Short Mic Holders and flyers. I have handed out all, but two flyers. I know that Brundswick Police purchased from you and the Chief loved it. I have spoken with Cooper County and have couple of my Law Enforcement friends talking to there Chiefs and Sheriffs about purchasing them. I have put mine on my Uniform and haven't taken it off. It is great and easy to use. No more mic falling off. It's awesome. I strongly believe in this product and hope to have the word out in Kansas. I have some friends that are Law Enforcement Officer in Salina, Kansas . I plan on trying to get them to use the Short Mic Holder. I figure I will try to get the word out to as many people as I can. When you strongly believe in something you work had to make sure everyone else believes in it as much as you do. I hope everything is going well for you. If there is anything else I can do for you let me know. Thanks again for putting a great product out there that could save some many lifes.

Marvin,

I just wanted to drop you a quick note after using your mic holder for the last month. EXCELLENT PRODUCT!  I've been involved in a few altercations since I started using it: lots of running, and the mic has stayed exactly where I want it.

Thanks again.

I am currently a Patrol Sergeant for the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office. Santa Clara, CA . We recently had a fight with a burglary suspect, and several of my deputies had lost their lapel microphone during the struggle. I have used your mic holder for a about a year and thought it was a great officer safety tool. So I am buying them for my officers.

Thanks for the tool!

Michael Jacobs

As a field training officer, I highly recommend using Short Mic Holder. I wear one, and the officers I have trained find the Short Mic Holder very beneficial. It is great tactical safety item. The Short Mic Holder will stay in place under any circumstances.

San Fernando, CA Police Department


Dear MTS 911 Wear,

I'm so happy to hear that this little device is finally going into production. I was one of the first officers to get one of Mike's microphone holders and I didn't think much of it at first. Shortly after getting in my first struggle with a suspect, I noticed that my microphone was still hanging from my shirt, right where it should be. At that time I went up to Mike and told him how well the little device had worked and apologized for not thinking much of it at first. I think that it is a great device as it makes sure that your  microphone remains where it should be and accessible when you need it. In the event of a struggle, you don't have waste time looking for your microphone or have to take your eyes off of your suspect when you need to use your radio. You always know where your microphone is. I think its a great device!

Reserve Officer Abilio Lopez
San Fernando Police Department

Sir,

Having used the Short Mic Holder for a couple of months now, I wanted to write and let you know that I have been very pleased with the ease of use, obvious durability, and the peace of mind it gives me to know that when I need my radio microphone I know where it will be. I was so impressed with your product, I have purchased fifty of them for our personnel to use. Everyone in law enforcement with an extender microphone should use the Short Mic Holder as it could mean the difference between going home at the end of the shift or not.

[anonymity requested]


Marvin,

We have had the 
Short Mic Holder in use with our deputies for the last few months. We have found this product dramatically improves officer safety. Because of this, I personally endorse this product and have found it to be a very simple, innovative way of keeping our deputies in communication with assisting units.

[anonymity requested]


This is an exceptional piece of equipment, used to keep our radio microphones from becoming dislodged from our uniform shirt while running, or during inmate contact.

[anonymity requested]

Marvin,

For the past 6 years, I have evaluated new technology equipment to improve the efficiency of our patrol personnel and to improve officer safety. After personally evaluating the Short Mic Holder, I was very impressed with the effectiveness and simplicity of the device. Every officer who wears a mic in the field is aware of the problem of the mic becoming dislodged while in foot pursuits or during fights with suspects. A dangling mic poses a great officer safety risk at a time when officer safety is most critical. I have given the Short Mic Holder to several patrol deputies for evaluation and received very favorable comments. Thank you for taking your son's innovative idea and producing a cost-effective solution to benefit all police officers. I am certain that individual officers and police departments will recognize the benefit of the Short Mic Holder in improving officer safety.

[anonymity requested]

The Short Mic Holder are easy to use, stay in place, and keep the mic right where it should be, just like when I got suited up for duty. I have ran with them and bent over into various positions and they just seem to keep my mic in place. Thanks for a simple and functioning law enforcement product.

Det. Sgt. V. Pecoraro
Auburn Police Dept.

I would like to place and order for 50 of the "Short Mics". I have given several of the samples that I received to my officers. They love them. I feel this is a great product and will help save lives of police officers. I also feel that this is a great tribute to your son, who will always remain a member of the law enforcement family.

Thank you,

The Short Mic Holder works just fine.

Officer Nevin
Quincy Police Department
Quincy, IL

In one instance, I lost the ability to communicate with the dispatcher during a struggle I had with a suspect. I was trying to arrest the individual when my microphone detached from my uniform shirt. I was given your microphone holder to test so I could prevent this from reoccurring again. Unfortunately (or fortunately), I have not been in a physical struggle since; however, on several occasions I have tried to remove my radio from my belt area. As I set my radio down and I forgot about removing the microphone from the holder, your attachment held the entire weight of the radio as it dangled from my person. I have no doubt your holder will not only keep a hand microphone in place but it seems to hold the weight of the entire radio as well (something possible during an incident and unexpected).

Ofc. Tait Thomas #343

I recently tested your microphone holder. I used the product for roughly a week. This is a product you do not appreciate until you actually get into a situation where your most important piece of equipment (RADIO) has fallen from your reach. The Short Mic Holder was easily inserted over my microphone and through my button opening. I was surprised at how the microphone was secured to the shirt; I was skeptical about this working. After a week of wear, it became apparent that this product was durable and almost necessary for keeping my microphone attached to my uniform. In the scope of my duties I ride a bicycle for two to three hours daily and normally in the process of a week my microphone would come unclipped daily. During my trial week I am happy to inform you that my microphone stayed securely attached to my uniform all week!

Thank you for the opportunity to use your product.

Brent Steffan

Dear Mr. Short,

Myself and several other officers in the police department were quite impressed with your 
Short Mic Holder. I knew as soon as I put it on that I would be using it from now on.

Thanks again,

Lt. Dale Phillips
Waynesburg Police Department

Since receiving the Short Mic Holder, I have used it every shift. My mic now does not come off and get tangled with my feet during confrontations.

Thank you for a great product.

Officer Kevin Witschie #32
Millstadt Illinois Police Dept.

The real value with the Short Mic Holder is moving it from the shoulder area and placing it directly in front of the officer EVEN WHEN WHEN THE CLIP IS DISLOGED. As part of our training we instruct officers to avoid turning their heads to speak into the mic. An officer in a neighboring department was shot to death when he averted his eyes from the suspect to the shoulder mic.

Lower Merion Police Department
ARDMORE, PA.

I have worked for the Jermyn Borough Police Department for the past 15 years. For the past 7 years, I have trained newly appointed officers. I have said in the past that something is needed to keep the mics from falling off of the officers' shirts. Your product is just that peace of mind I needed.

Officer Robert S. Flynn
Jermyn Borough Police Department
Jermyn, Pennsylvania

I would like to thank you for allowing us to test the Short Mic Holder. I have passed it on to one of my patrol officers who has reported that he is very pleased with the devise, which has several times now kept his mic in place when it would have normally have fallen off of his shirt. The mic holder is one of those tools that most of us would not have ever thought about using; until you start to use it, and then it becomes a very useful tool. It's easy to use, and it makes sense.

Thanks again, best wishes and continued success with your mic holder.

Hey Marvin,

I would like to say, I have tried the 
Short Mic Holder and won't ever go a shift without using it. Ironically, the first night had it on, I was involved with a vehicle pursuit and subsequent foot chase afterwards. Once we caught the driver, he gave us a fight we will soon forget, although, during the struggle, my mic clip came off of my shirt. With the Short Mic Holder in use, the mic was right where I needed it to radio that the subject was in custody...Thanks Again !!!

Marvin,

It was nice to speak with you earlier this afternoon. I looked at your site and was impressed by your product. Although it is quite simple in design it appears the holder is a valuable asset to Patrol. I remember having my mic knocked loose off my epaulet on more than one occasion back in my youth. I also went to the memorial site for you son and was touched by the fact he was someone who was a Reserve Officer and did the job to help the community he lived in.

Have a happy holiday.

Lt. Cummings from my police department asked me to write you about this item. I have used it and found that it does in fact work very well when I use it on the front of my shirt. It holds the mic in place and does the job it was designed to do. Thanks you for your son designing this.

Officer Paul Kreuter #70
Doylestown Borough PD

I have personally used the Short Mic Holder on our summer, winter, and tactical uniform, and have found it to be a very practical piece of equipment in all situations. When properly used, it holds a shoulder mic in place during all applications of the law enforcement experience. I recommend it without reservation for any officer. Furthermore, I thank you for the opportunity to evaluate this device (free of charge), as it does what it says it would do.

Chief William Renner
Cleves, Ohio Police Dept.

Marvin,

Just a word of appreciation. On March 17, 2009 I was working extra duty at a local bar for St. Patty's Day. Around 2330 I attempted to escort a drunk from the bar that had punched an elderly patron of the bar in the back. As I confronted the drunk, he immediately decided that he was not leaving the bar with out a fight. During the altercation, my radio mic clip that was attached to the front of my shirt was knocked off, but the Short Mic Holder kept my radio mic attached to my shirt and permitted me to call for back up. The Short Mic Holder is truly an officer safety device.

I have used it and I have put up the brochures and given the cards to fellow deputies and officers, so hopefully you will be seeing some orders coming from my area.
