The set includes a belt clip, a gripper clip, and a push pin clip which snap securely onto the USB plug end of the shuffle. All three clips are made of durable white ABS plastic, stainless steel and galvanized steel to match the appearance of the iPod shuffle. The Clips will start shipping next month for $19.99 (all three clips are packaged together).

Add a keychain clip and I will be a buyer…

Great idea. Unfortunately, we prototyped one of these, and in use, handling it with real keys hanging on it, the cap kept coming off and dropping either the keys or the shuffle. We decided to pass, and just go for the clothing and bag clips, instead. grin

won’t this mess up the USB connection over time?  I mean evertime you open the belt clip it’s pushing on the cap and pushing the USB connector to the side.  It’s seems that overtime, your USB connection could get ruined or messed up.

From the web site:
The belt clip lets you clip your shuffle to a belt, waistband, or pocket. The gripper lets you clamp your shuffle to your collar, your shirt lapel, or your sleeve. And, the push pin makes it simple to just stick your shuffle securely to any item of clothing, anywhere you choose.

No, because we have made the tension very light on both the belt clip and the gripper. It’s strong enough to secure the shuffle, but, that’s a really light duty task. We think a typical quick, clumsy insertion of the USB plug into a Mac creates more risk of plug damage. grin

Tip: use the push pin WITH the back-clip, don’t press it directly into your body.

Fantastic. Now, what if I get two of the push-pin clips, on two Shuffles and wear them as earrings?

i read the website, but why would you ‘clip’ it onto your collar? you could do the exact same thing with the belt clip. and the pin… i guess you could pin it anywhere, but come on, it’s not that big of a fashion statement. i just want something i can clip onto my shorts while running.
and to MacMice… will consumers be able to purchase individual clips? i’d pay $10 for just the belt clip.
