All of the ENDEAVOR models are compatible with the SIMCO Belt Clip. The clip is one piece molded ABS and installs easily onto the back of any of the enclosures without drilling. The clip is designed with molded screw posts. The same screws that are used to assemble the case work as well for the belt clip.

The SIMCO Belt Clip is being lauded by both customers and engineers. It is very simply designed. Unlike other clips of its kind, there is no drilling required. No extra screws or rivets are needed. It is a one-piece clip with molded screw posts that are neatly positioned with the case’s existing screw bosses. To complete the assembly, you only need the same fasteners that are used for the case itself.

The clip is designed to have a low profile. They are made from smooth and scratch resistant ABS and feature rounded edges and a textured finish. Because of its unique design, the belt clip is not only attractive but also very durable. The SIMCO BC1 Belt Clip fits all ENDEAVOR enclosures and it fits four of the SATURN enclosures – 100×23, 11×25, 160×23, and 160×25.

The cases and the clip are all made from high impact SIMPLAS. They come in SIMCO’s three standard colors – Black, Dark Grey, and PC Bone Grey. Typical SIMCO options are available, including EMI/RFI shielding, 94Vo UL approved materials, and custom colors. Machine openings can be customized by SIMCO according to the customer’s assembly requirements. SIMCO can also imprint a company logo or other information onto the case.
