Firstly. What's caused the crack?.

If you've got one of the first generation models of TYT radios, namely the MD-380 radio in particular.

How can you fix or correct the issue?.

If you do have an early model of the TYT MD-380, TYT themselves have offered replacement cases to fix the problem. Many people have asked just for the small area around the belt clip to be fixed, but it's not always that practical.

General Care Tips

  • Every few months, depending on how frequently you use your radio. Ensure you check your belt clip screws to ensure they remain tight and haven't worked loose.
  • Don't overtigten your screws and ensure they're not crossthreaded.
  • If you notice your belt clip becoming stiff or harder to get off your belt. Check for signs of weakness in the springs or corrosion. It could be possible you need a new belt clip. Again, this would depend on the environment you use your radios and how frequently you use them.
