The Heads Up Mic Clip, Camera Clip and Combo Clip - Congrats To Bill Waybourn

Congrats to Bill Waybourn who won the run-off race for the Tarrant Ciounty Sheriff's Office race here in Fort Worth, Texas.  It was very evident that Bill was going to win against the incumbent Dee Anderson early on in the evening.  We all visited at the election watching party at Saljo's Pizza in Pantego and had a great time with friends and family.  Bill is the real deal and will lead his deputies like a leader and a real man is supposed to do.  We are honored to know Bill and his family and we look forward to his continued success!!  There is a New Sheriff in Town and he wears an American Hat, Made in Texas!!!

God Bless Texas and God Bless Bill Waybourn

The Heads UP MIc Clip

Good evening y'all!!  Enjoying the nice calm weather here in So. Tarrant County working an extree job.  I happened across an article this morning and I would like to share it with y'all.  it is an awesome read, check it out!!!


By Jason F. Wright - NYT:

I should have said something.
Three of you stood in a quiet corner, munching on something and sharing a story. Even though I was running late and on a swift stride, I wish I’d noticed your jurisdiction.
I should have said something.
Not to you, but to the women who walked out clutching their coffees and muttering under their morning breath.
“What’s wrong with them? It drives me crazy when they hang out like that. Aren’t they on the clock?”
I know you’ve heard it all before. It’s that caricature of an overweight police officer downing doughnuts in his cruiser.
Wouldn’t you love to know where that silly stereotype originated? We’ve seen the scene in movies, sitcoms and comic strips. In fact, the only place I haven’t witnessed the police pastry myth is in reality.
That doesn’t seem to matter though, does it? Unless you’re blazing down the road with your lights and sirens on fire or chasing a bad guy out of a bank, then you must be fat and lazy and racing toward a date with diabetes.
Sadly, it’s only getting worse.
We question your motives every time you blink. We doubt your integrity. Roadside interactions are now i-captured and i-studied more than Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane.
Today, thousands of police will pursue criminals, make arrests, fight for justice and save lives without incident or fanfare. But we don’t hear about those cases.
Why would we? We don’t bother tuning in until an inconclusive and grainy cellphone video hits the Internet.
When did this happen? When did you become more disliked and distrusted than the criminals you put behind bars?
When did we land in this alternate universe where the presumption of innocence applies only to knuckleheads with knives and every officer is corrupt until proven otherwise?
I should have said something.
How do they know why you’re standing in a 7-Eleven? How do they know how long you’ve been there? Do they have a clue what you just saw, who you just served or how many you just saved?
How do those women know whether or not you’re on the clock?
Does it even matter? Aren’t you always on the clock when you’re sworn to defend and protect?
I should have said something.
I wish I’d told them how much I admire the brave men and women in this country who wear the uniforms of local, county, state and federal law enforcement.
I should have reminded them that while they get to live without looking over their shoulders when shopping at Target, our brave officers work everyday with one on their backs.
They probably don’t know that according to the Officer Down Memorial Page, 128 of our finest were killed in 2015 and 30 have already been buried in 2016 and another perished in Ohio on Tuesday.
I should have told them that, too.
I could have demonstrated how proud I am of my uncles, cousins, friends, neighbors and brothers from church who’ve put their lives on the line for decades.
I might have explained that while I honor and respect those in the armed services defending and fighting for freedom around the world, I feel the very same for those defending and fighting for freedom in my own neighborhood.
Shouldn’t we all feel that way?
It’s time to end the whispering and second guessing.
It’s time to end the mob-driven protests and recognize that in law enforcement, mistakes are extraordinarily rare.
It’s time to commit that next time we walk into a convenience store and see officers munching on something and sharing a story, instead of muttering under our breath, we’ll say, “thank you.”
I know I will.

Good day!

I hope everyone is doing well.  I am happy to advise that FWPD Officer Matt Pearce is doing better every day. He still has a long way to go, but he is tough and determined and will be back on the streets when he is ready!  Thanks for all of the prayers and thanks to all who have contributed with the fundraising efforts.  Our community really stepped up to the plate and have given a lot, both momentarily and by volunteering their time.  It is heart warming to see everyone pitch in to help.  Fort Worth, by far is the best city and has the best people and atmosphere!  Cowtown!

So, check this out... If you have a relative or a friend who is a police officer, starting April 1st, month long, we will be offering a special at The Heads Up Mic Clip.  When you purchase one at regular price, you can purchase a second one for 1/2 price.  We are calling it, "Buy A Clip Cor A Cop".  We also invite donors to purchase for entire police departments to show their support for our guys and gals in blue. It will go live April 1st., so if you know anyone let them know about it.

Thanks y'all and be safe out there!

The Heads Up Combo Clip. Secure your mic and body worn camera. Don't compromise your safety by turning your head to speak into your mic! Solve the problem of your camera falling or breaking the attachment clip!! Available for agency and officer purchases. Go to 

We just returned from our first ever trade show which was at the Texas Police Chiefs Association Conference in Austin, Texas.  We killed it!  The every one who we talked to was really excited about The Heads Up Mic Clip, Camera Clips and the new Combo Clips.  From body worn camera companies, big corporate suppliers, big and small agencies and individual officers, they all were ready to order and stock.  We were amazed by the out pouring of support and the 'ata boys' for the invention and the compliments on our booth.  Ha ha, it was our first time, but they all thought it was cool.  Leading up to the show, I was pretty nervous, but once we started talking to folks and every one was so nice, it just started to roll like natural!!  The guys at Freeman were amazing and had everything ready to go, took care of the congestion at the loading dock and provided extra carts to haul stuff.  The other vendors were also awesome as well!!  I can't wait for the next one!!  Texas Tactical Police Officers Association Conference, here we come!!!

We will be adding a new option on the website!!  I'm thinking I might call it, "Buy A Mic Clip For A Cop"  campaign for the general public to purchase one of our devices for their friend or family member that might be the police to help keep them safe.  Stay tuned for the update!  Be safe y'all!!

FWPD Officer Needs Your Prayers

Good afternoon.  Please join us in praying for the speedy recovery of Officer Matt Pearce of Fort Worth PD.  He was shot multiple times yesterday as he and other officers attempted to apprehend a wanted felon.  The felon was shot and killed on scene by the other officers.  We are a tight knit LEO family in the Fort Worth area and greatly appreciate all of the support from the community.

It seems that we don't go one day without hearing about another officer wounded or killed.  Whether it be when they are on a call for service or just a random act of violence.  It seems that a lot of the violence towards the police is fueled by the race-baters, the media and people in high-political positions.  I would just like to say that the job is hard enough when you have to deal with whatever might come your way when you go to call or on a traffic stop.  Now we have to deal with the more likelihood of being attacked just because we wear a badge.  Just sayin'...

Be safe out there and hug a cop!

Hoping all is well with everyone!!  Please take time to pray for the folks around the country and the world who are dealing with weather disasters. Tornadoes and other bad weather emergencies can come in an instant and it is always a great idea to be prepared to take cover and provide as much protection for you and your family with little notice.  Sometimes I get grief for listening to AM radio all of the time and not one of the web based music stations, but AM radio keeps you in the loop from traffic issues to storms.  So it's not a bad thing to tune into stations like WBAP...  Just sayin'... :-)

Have that discussion with your family about where y'all are gonna meet up when there is a big emergency and have plenty of stuff to get you by when the zombies or hippies try to take over.  Defend your position!!!  Just be ready!

So if y'all know anyone who is the police tell them about The Heads Up Mic Clip or send them this link It is a great device to help secure their potable radio mic and/or body worn camera to their uniform.  It is a great Officer Safety Device.

Y'all be safe and keep your heads on swivel.

Maintain Officer Safety

Good day to all!! I have adapted a new company slogan.  "Officer Safety Is Our Main Goal".  This is really what it boiled down to when I came up with the idea about the Heads Up Mic Clip.  I know that the majority of officers working the streets are very vigilant in demonstrating officer safety, from wearing their body armor, to positioning on traffic stops and being aware of their surroundings.  We work in a very different environment now and must be even more vigilant about what is going on around us.  It is very scary when you see the level of violence directed towards us and we must keep our heads on swivel.  One of the worst examples here recently, was the officer in, I think it was Philly, who was driving his marked unit through and intersection, and he was ambushed by an ISIS guy (though our Feds won't admit that). Then there was our Texas Brother Darren Goforth, who was fueling his patrol car when he was murdered. 

How many times throughout the day are we in a disadvantaged tactical position? Almost all times is the reality.  Pretty revealing...   As LEO's, we have all been taught to plan ahead.  A quick discussion with your partner or your group about what y'all are going to do if 'something goes down'; where y'all would rather sit in a restaurant so when Johnny Crackhead or ISIS comes-a-callin', y'all can minimize and neutralize. Be ready to act when the fecal matter hits the oscillator.  Have the right equipment that is ready to go, when and if you need it.  It's better to have it and not need it,rather than to need it and not have it!!  Our main goal every day is to make it home at the end of our shift.  Officer safety is the key, at every end of the spectrum.  Y'all be safe out there an God Bless!

Heads Up Mic Clip Race Weekend

Good Saturday y'all!! We hope that everyone enjoys the weekend and the big race tomorrow.  Hopefully Dale Jr. will win!!  I'll tell ya what...  The race weekend coverage is amazing.  Having been a race fan all of my life and having raced motorcycles back in my younger days, seeing all of the new cool stuff and the visual images that the racing media brings us, is incredible!! The business sure has come a long way and so technical.  You still hear people say that NASCAR is boring since they only turn left, but the showmanship, the team work, strategies and the levels of camaraderie,, enthusiasm and personalities is awesome.  i can't wait until they come to Texas in April!!  It's gonna be so much fun!!

Well, as y'all watch the races please remember all of our incredible guys and gals in the service that can't be here because they are protecting our liberties.  Also remember the ones that we have lost over the years and for the coppers, fire-dudes & dudettes and EMS folks that keep us safe!!

Be safe, stay vigilant and keep your head on swivel!!

The Heads Up Mic Clip

Good morning and happy Friday to all. What a beautiful morning here in the Fort Worth area, it is hard to believe that it is February and the high temp is supposed to be 79... Sweet, another shorts-day!!!

Much is happening across our great nation and I hope and pray that we can turn the political spectrum around by cleaning house and electing some leaders that actually love our country, respect The Constitution and will do what is right for "We The People"!!  There is so much wrong with what is happening now and it makes my heart ache. Enough of that talk...

Here at The Heads Up Mic Clip CP we are gearing up for some trade shows that we will be attending this spring. We plan to be at The Texas Police Chief Association's event in Austin in March and the ever-so awesome TTPOA Convention in San Marcos in April. If y'all happen to attend, be sure to stop by and say hello. The TTPOA puts on a great event that includes a huge trade show, sweet courses that involve lots of weapons training, mindset training and much more. They always have great speakers and truly honor those officers that we have lost along with honoring our profession. It's top notch and if you can go, get there.

Here is a tactical-tip for the patrol guys and gals. I think I learned it from Bullet Head, the guy who writes some pretty good stuff in one of the cop mags. So everytime I exit the patrol vehicle, I would ensure that I left the back doors unlocked. This is done because if you are having to deal with an unruly customer and you're trying to put them in the back of the unit,  you don't want to have to worry about fumbling around for your other set of keys to unlock the front door, to hit the button to unlock the back doors. Hopefully you unit has a cage, (state troopers say, "Cage...? We don't need no stinkin'  cage!!!), when I'm rolling up or typically have done so earlier, I'll hit the unlock button then reach over to the shotgun side and manually lock the front passenger door. That way when I bail out of the unit, I simply hit the manual lock on my door, that way the front of the unit, where all the cool stuff is, is now secure. This way when you and your buds are trying to install Mr. or Mrs. "I ain't going without a fight", into the back of the unit, y'all can just open the back door and SHAZAM... One installed knucklehead!! That's my Heads Up Mic Clip "Tip O' The Day"!!!

Y'all be safe out there and remember... We are the sheepdogs! 💨💨

The Heads Up Mic Clip

Hi y'all. Well this is my first time "blogging"...  So here is a brief overview on what we are doing.

After working the streets as a police officer for a number of months and having been involved in a few struggles, scraps and foot chases with numerous unsavory characters, it became very evident that some of the equipment that we carry can become detached from you. Other than your handgun and a torch for nighttime operations, the other most critical piece of equipment is your handheld radio and the mic that we attach to our uniform or vest. Without it and in a bad situation, you can find yourself in a world of hurt and your dispatcher gets freaked out and your colleagues start getting anxious... It's not good!! So I used to attach my handheld mic by clipping it either in between two buttons on my shirt or at the top button. It would never stay there when you were having to "deal" with someone. I tried using rubber bands,  the wife's hair bands and the ever faithful bailing wire. None of them worked very effectively and that's when I came up with my idea of using s bent piece of metal that you secure to your inner vest carrier and then attach your mic to it. It worked!!!

The device kept the mic in a great location too! Some officers like their mic's on their shoulder, but I noticed that every time they spoke into their mic, they turned their head, which to me could be a safety issue when operating in a situation where you need to be Heads Up and aware of everything around you. It also positioned the mic right under your chin so you get great voice clarity when you are either having to use your outside voice or have to speak quietly. I also used an earpiece, so I was able to route the speaker wire under my shirt which kept it tucked in and away from being snagged by those pesky tree limbs or seat belts. The other great additional feature is that if both of your hands are unable to "key up" your mic, you can activate the PTT button with your chin and transmit your message.  I have changed materials a couple of times and reconfigured it a couple of times and it has become a well received piece of equipment for the cops on the street. i named it The HEADS-UP-MIC-CLIP. "Keep your focus straight ahead".!!

We now have 7 part numbers that include the standard Heads Up Mic Clip in both powedercoated 16ga steel and in Kydex, the sm/med camera clip for body worn cameras like The MAXSU SHIELD V in both steel and Kydex, the large camera clip for Vievu in both steel and Kydex and the combo clip for both the body worn cameras and your mic. The camera clips addition is also vital because it also keeps the camera secure and keeps it in a great location to capture video of what the officer is facing. We offer a lifetime warranty and a money back guarantee on all of them. We are dedicated to providing world class customer service to the Sheepdogs, the guys and gals that go out there and risk their lives every day to help keep our great country safe.

In a time we find ourselves in where there is a literal "war on cops", we must stay alert at all times and keep our equipment where we can access it. I personally believe that our products will help keep officers safer, I know The Heads Up Mic Clip keeps my gear where I need it, when I need it.

Y'all be safe out there and I'll catch ya next time.
