Transcript from Steve's Video:

The Garmin retractable tether is one of my favorite ways to carry a Garmin Astro or a Garmin Alpha. Biggest thing about your Astro is that you need access to it. But the handhelds are very expensive and you do not want to drop them. So I highly recommend that you tie them to yourself.

The tether works great in that it has a clip. It's going to be attached to you, but you can pull it out when you need it. And it retracts by itself. I use them in conjunction with the belt clip that comes along with the Alphas and the Astros. You can't trust the belt clip by itself just because of the way they rotate. If you are walking through the brush you can knock it off very easily.

But the tether is going to fix that where if it does come loose then it's still going to be attached to your vest. It's still going to be attached to your belt loop. I've been using them for a while. Pretty simple. Just slides through the loop here on the bottom.

So we have this. Then we take our tether and it attaches. And so now you've got it tied to yourself. Take this, I'll attach this to a belt loop or a loop on my vest. And then I take the clip and now it's hanging. This way I've got access to it. it's not bouncing around on me. I've got easy access to it when I need it. But when I'm through with it I just clip it back in and it's secure. I don't have to worry about losing it. And then the real beauty here is that you've got a safety clip on it so that you can separate it out and you can charge it without having to remove the clip from your vest.

Just a great tool. It works well with the Alphas and the Astros. It will work well with anything else that we've got as far as if it has a clip to it. Neat way to keep up with it and have easy access in the field.

Definitely something you need to have with the Garmin Alpha. The brush has pulled the handheld unit off of my coat many times. The lanyard has prevented an expensive loss.

I keep my Astro in my front pocket of my vest. It's a nice safety feature to keep the controller from ever falling out and getting lost. Very happy with the product with the 8x I've used it.

"The lanyard is the best part of this product. I have come out of the woods in the dark many times with my Astro 320 hanging by the lanyard."

By: Jared Fowler From SC

Owns 9 dogs. Hunts.

The lanyard is the best part of this product. The belt clip has a small tab that keeps getting knocked out of position if I don't press the false button fully. I figured out how to put it back in position so it isn't too much of a big deal. I have come out of the woods in the dark many times with my Astro 320 hanging by the lanyard. The fact that the lanyard can be disconnected without having to take the retracting device off is convenient also. I highly recommend this product to who likes to keep track of their equipment in the field.

I bought this as a back up attachment for my Garmin alpha, and it works ok. I would not use it by itself as it doesn't seem sturdy enough. It doesn't retract with enough force to pull the alpha all the way up, and the line seems thin considering the price of what it's hooked to.
