Brobot, welcome to abi

I like the mod you did, very nice job! Since you just found us, I thought I’d point out the Clip forums where you’ll find all kinds of invaluable information about the Clip, from rockbox to original firmware and trouble shooting threads, enjoy …

I think that's an awesome mod. I'm glad to hear it has held up OK for 3 months now. I would think a 2-part epoxy adhesive would be a better alternative than super-glue for long-term use.

Classy looking. I've always liked the Clip with a stainless steel clip.

While this isn't very classy looking, it works for me. I sanded down the broken hinge points, which gave the back a rough surface for the epoxy to better adhere to. I don't use the clip most of the time, so this allows me to easily remove it.

Great idea, thanks for sharing. I like that you can easily remove the clip on part. I've never repaired mine because I like the size without the clip.

With no clip it just about vanishes. I have to be really checking before putting clothes in the laundry. I've almost sent it for a swim a couple of times.

My two Zips are still working fine (rockbox 3.13) but I noticed the clips were damaged. I don't know how it happened, I think I must have stepped on them at some point, but I removed the broken clips and made the following repair:



Luckily it was the clip itself that was broken in both cases, so I just slightly enlarged the holes on the back of the Zips (1/16" drill) and threaded a lanyard through.

Not exactly a clip replacement, but I always used the Zips with a lanyard anyway.

Page Found Suitable Clips

Hey guys, I had clip broke for some while now and almost didn't use Sansa. But I decided to start my search for solution with not much optimism because I thought I was among few folks who had this happen. I asked on SanDisk forums and folks showed me this thread where I saw some DIY solutions. I wanted to buy ECCO Klix but they are discontinued and while there are a few eBay sellers who have them, they are sold in multiples of 10, 30 so I decided to search for something else and here are 3 clips I found that could be quicker solution:

1. ARIIC New Metal Ant Pocket Anti Lost Clip Hook Wallet 2in1 for Mobeil Device iPhone

2. Nite Ize NBC-03-11 Hip/Belt Clip - Retail Packaging - Silver

3. Nite Ize eCLIPse Self Locking Clip - Spectrum

What do you think?

And a further question: is anyone aware of a clip that would work with a silicone case--that is, that would attach to a silicone case (most clips I've seen say that they need a hard surface--but wouldn't a superglue or other "modern" adhesive glue to a silicone, rubber-like surface as well)?

Is this the case you are talking about?

Yep. Was just wondering if an aftermarket clip, such as those mentioned above, could be affixed to a soft/pliable silicone case/skin, via a superglue or superglue variant. (I've seen some superglue-type substances that can be used on cloth fabrics, for example.)

If you are talking about affixing clip to silicone case then there is no need because rear is already cut out for original clip. There is cut out window on the back of silicone case.

But in the circumstance where the original clip has been broken off, or where one has a silicone case for another player without its own built-in clip and one wants to add one to a silicone case--the inquiry remains, whether one can with some superglue of some sort (I almost always see statements that a superglue is intending for hard surfaces, such as hard plastic shells and the like).
