Most pagers use either a belt clip or a lanyard and chain attachment as a means of retention. Some units provide features so that the end user has the option of attaching or detaching both clips. This can lead to a storage problem, relating to the feature which is detached at any particular time. This dilemma can be eliminated by combining the two' units into one integrated component. In other words, a belt clip assembly that when attached, functions as a standard belt clip; However, when detached functions as a lanyard and chain. This system eliminates the need for storage of either the belt clip or lanyard.
