Abstract

Currently, the holster used with the advisor pager bears a single clip mount (see Figure 1). FIG. 1 FIG. 3 Adding an additional clip mount on the opposite end of the holster gives the user an alternate way of removing his pager from the holster. If the wearer opts to use the reverse clip mount, he removes the pager with a downward motion which naturally and ergonomic- ally allows the pager to fit more comfortably in the hand for easier reading. Additionally, by the mere force of gravity, the lanyard is naturally inclined to remain out of the way when replacing the pager (see Figure 2).

Additionally, by the mere force of gravity, the lanyard is naturally inclined to remain out of the way when replacing the pager (see Figure 2).

(STANDARD CLIP MOUND

  When removing the pager using the standard clip mount, the users hand naturally blocks the display and the pager must be manipulated in order for the page to be acknowledged and read, usually requiring the use of both hands. Also, when replacing the pager using the standard clip mount, the downward motion often causes the lanyard to become entangled (see Figure 4).

FIG. 4

(REVERSE CLIP MOUNT)

  The suggestion was made to simply reverse the hol- ster altogether to achieve the same result. The reason this is not a feasible alternative is that the clip will not remain attached to a belt because of the downward force necessary to remove the pager and also would only serve those wearing belt (see Figure 3).
