Motorola APX 6000Li

Post by cop91 » Wed Dec 27, 2017 7:25 pm

Hello,

We used the APX 6000Li, as im sure most departments do. We just transitioned to these radios a few months back, our old radio holster that we have can hold the radio, but not too secure.

Does anyone recommend a holster for this radio, or should I just get an generic one and pray it holds?

Thanks

My old department used the APX6000 and I bought a generic nylon holder from the local uniform store and it worked well enough. Wasn't a big fan of it but did the trick.

Now I'm back to the HT1250's so I have a nice leather one for it.

Tts a big radio and heavy too....I dont know if youre holstering it with a clip, but im just clipping it onto my belt. It stays secure. I'm in and out of an outer carrier but it fits in the pocket with the clip as well as with my ear piece attachment.

This may be an odd suggestion, but I used to use an EMS pouch which were able to have extra pens, door jammers, a note pad, as well as the radio. If you dont mind the bulk, I'd give it a shot. Cheap off amazon and nylon.

We use our radios on our belt's, I currently am using it without the clip. We do have outer carriers, unfortunately not Molle' we just have the ugly uniform looking ones. So when you use the clip it actually causes some discomfort since it slides under the outer vest a lot.

I'll head down to the local uniform store and just try a few. I appreciate it though.

Fits like a glove, keeps the radio secure. Swivel attachment is an added plus as it helps being in and out of the car.

https://www.magnumelectronics.com/ they also have a great selection of carry options for the APX series radios. I have used them for various radios and have never had an issue.
