If you own a Baofeng UV-5R Two Way Radio, you need this PTT Protector. We've looked for a simple solution to end the hot-mic and volume knob problems with these radios. Some options were too large to fit in typical mag or radio pouches. Other options forced you to use a rigid holster. While those are great options, we still wanted to have a better, more streamlined, and simple solution to keep the side buttons protected from unintentional presses, and keep the volume knob from moving accidentally. Install this on your UV-5R and throw the radio in your cup holder, a rifle mag pouch, wherever you want. No more accidental volume changes. No more hot mics. Our PTT Protector kit will be your least noticeable but most important part of your comms.
SAO doesn't advocate "cheap gear," but we realize that the UV-5R is a simple and affordable communications option. It's the go-to for a lot of people. Whether you're running this radio in a pouch on your air-soft kit with a PTT adapter, training at the range in full gear (as you should), or have it in your vehicle on the trail, our PTT Protector will allow you to use the radio like you normally would, just without the hot-mic and loose volume knob problems you've come to hate.
