The PortaBrace RMB-SK100 Radio Mic Bouncer could just be the item that saves the day. On the end of a boom pole, the delicate switches can get dragged along a rough sidewalk especially after holding your arms up all day long. PortaBrace extended the cover 1" (25mm) beyond the transmitter to protect switches and to act as a shock absorber. If the connection is not snapped in place it can ﾓtorpedo" out of the grasp of a hand held microphone. And with the belt clip and ﾓD" ring details added you can fasten it securely using a carabineer or PS-6 Piggin` String.
