Abstract

Many of Motorola's existing paging products in the field can be impacted or scratched in the front, This causes the warranty centers to replace either the pager lens or even broken LCDs. These prod- ucts also currently use a holster with a removable beltclip assembly. A solution is to injection mold a lens protector that can be attached at the existing beltclip location and then the beltclip attached to it. This device could be sold as an aftermarket item in accenting colors or even translucent so that the dis- play can still be read. As shown below, the protector is designed to fit around the existing pager and hol- ster while still allowing access to all the buttons.
