Porta-Clip® is a family owned and operated company. The inventor and founder Gerald T. Carter Sr. is a former police officer for the city of Grandville, Michigan. Gerald was issued his portable radio and was told to “Just carry it in your pocket.” After many days of frustration and inconveniences he knew there had to be a better and more efficient way to carry his radio.
The idea for the Porta-Clip® was born. Gerald came up with a few prototypes working towards finding the best solution. Working out of his garage, Gerald made each one by hand finally creating the Porta-Clip® we know today. Gerald continued making each Porta-Clip® by hand out of his garage for many years.
Once Gerald introduced his Porta-Clip® to fellow officers the product took off. Gerald relocated his business to a production facility located just outside of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Since the inception Gerald has brought family into his company to help it grow into the business it is today. Know Porta-Clip® is used by Police officers, Fireman, Construction crews and EMT’s.
