Radio Grips to Keep Your Radios Clean

The Secret’s in the Silicone (Shhh!)


As futuristic as it sounds, silicone has been working its way into multiple facets of our daily lives since its early stages of commercial development in the 1930s.


  • First, it is incredibly gentle on even sensitive skin, making the range suitable for everyday use.
  • Second, silicone’s hygiene factor. Because it’s non-porous, silicone is resistant to bacterial buildup, making it a whopping 35X more hygienic than nylon or plastics.


RadioGrips are custom made for each model, enabling them to firmly grip onto the radio while still being able to fit into the OEM charger. This is done with 3D scan and tooling for each case.





For general cleaning, Motorola Solutions recommends mixing one tablespoon of mild dishwashing detergent to one gallon of water (0.5% solution) to clean the external surfaces of the radio. The solution should be applied sparingly with a stiff, nonmetallic, short bristled brush, making sure excess detergent does not get entrapped near the connectors, controls or crevices. Do not submerge the radio in the detergent solution. Place the radio (IP67 or greater rating) under a faucet for rinsing. The radio should then be dried thoroughly with a soft, lint free cloth.

An alternative cleaning method is to wipe the housing plastic down with over-the-counter isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) with no more than 90% isopropyl alcohol concentration. The alcohol should never be applied directly to the radio; rather the alcohol be applied to a rag first, then the radio can be wiped down by the rag. Avoid rubbing label or adhesive areas with the alcohol-soaked rag.
