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
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.

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.

Leon County Sheriff's
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!

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
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
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!

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.

unclipped daily. During my trial week I am happy to inform

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!

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.
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.]

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.
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

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

they have been unable to so I thank your son for an excellent 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.
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
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.

Please keep it safe out there.

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
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
assistance, that my mic was still there. Now, most of the officers at

Mic Holder. Again, I just wanted to thank you
for helping me and
other officers feel more safe on the street.

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
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
get them to use the Short
Mic Holder. I figure I will try to get
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
else I can do for you let me know. Thanks again for putting a great
product out there that could save some many lifes.

I want it.

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
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
when you need it. In the event of a struggle, you don't have waste time
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
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.

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.

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.
would like to
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.
Holder works just fine.
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
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!

front of the officer EVEN WHEN WHEN THE CLIP IS DISLOGED. As part of
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.

thank you for
allowing us to test the Short Mic Holder. I have passed it on
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.

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 !!!

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.

found that it does in fact work very well when I use it on the front of

do. Thanks you for your son designing this.
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
what it says it would do.
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
using your mic
holder for a few weeks. It has worked well on my class A uniforms...
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
