    How much money are you looking to part with? I only have 2 left for life and I love the diad 3 clip.

    Having never had the DIAD 3 clip (I started post DIAD 3), I've never known anything different.

    Some others I work with still rock the 3 clip and won't use the 4 clip...

    I find that there is a sweet spot on your belt with the 4 clip where the DIAD won't rock back and forth when you're walking. It works for me.

    I fell out of the back of my package car yesterday, flat ass on the ground (no good story, just a super-clumsy move, I was totally fine). I fell on the ground in full view of a small private school office...that was embarrassing enough, but my 4 clip did not survive the fall and I had to carry the DIAD in like it was just another package.

    Hated clip 4.0 at first but new didad kept falling out and leaned out at an angle so i sounded every doorframe when i entered a busi. Got used to new clip, is now my FAV. Wouldnt go back for anything

    I still use the old pouch. Can throw your keys small envelopes and your diad in it.

    I hate the 4 clip too. That long clip just makes that DIAD swing too much.

    But I use it......

    i came on to ups and have only used diad 4 clip. one guy gave me a diad 3 clip that i only use in emergencys. i hate it. i love the diad 4 clip and i think it works perfect. i can slap the diad in any time and never gets in the way. i keep the diad 3 clip for my peak helper to use, but didnt this year cause i didnt trust my helper to not lose it. if you want my diad 3 clip let me know, i will part with it.

    I like the clip made of wire that the mechanic usually made for the drivers. The clip board hung on it so well.

    Never knew there was a DIAD 3 and a DIAD 4 clip. I use the pouch too.

    Never used a clip or pouch, hate em all. If I can't carry it, I use a 2 wheeler.
    Can't stand 5lbs hanging from my belt.

    I'm with you, I can't stand either one. The only time I have used a pouch is when I used to hang one on my hand truck. I tried a DIAD 4 clip one day, I didn't like the DIAD bouncing off my hip all day. Since the DIAD 5 looks to be smaller and lighter, I imagine a clip for it will be worth a try. We have a shortage of 4 clips, I guess they don't make them anymore. Our OMS has signs up asking drivers to bring in their extras.

    I tried using a clip but it dug into the fat on my waist and I didnt like the way that the DIAD kept swinging and slapping my butt cheek. The clip also got tangled up in the seatbelt buckle. I dont use a pouch either, I either hang the DIAD on the handtruck handle or just put it on top of whatever box I am carrying.

    Never knew DIAD 3 had a clip. I fought off using the DIAD 4 clip but now I can't live without it. I just wish it didn't fit so tight. I drop the board more trying to hit the clip then I did without it.

    I stopped using the long clip cause, Like Sober, the clip kept catching my seatbelt and was driving me nuts.
