Thread: Track Clip Pro Quality...

    Default Track Clip Pro Quality...

    Guys, Just an FYI. Last night my Track Clip Pro broke and I had to make hasty repairs with duct tape (3rd behind beer and the airplane on the list of greatest inventions). I've done some web surfing today and found that this is a very very common issue. The pivot point on the piece that holds the 3 reflection dots to the clip you mount on your head set is just two very thin pieces of plastic. It doesn't take much torque on it at all to break one of them off. The good news is the Natural Point was very co-operative (at least so far) and will replace it free after I send them the camera S/N and a picture of the broken clip.

    I love the improvement in tracking over the hat clip that you get with the Track Clip Pro but it is an unnecessarily fragile piece. I may just end up adjusting the next one the way I like and then epoxying it. From the postings on the TIR forums I get the impression that a redesign may be in the works (along with a blue tooth wireless option) but that hasn't actually been said anywhere. In the mean time don't throw out your hat clips.

    Mike.

    Have a read on the TrackIR forums in the Track Clip Pro section: http://forum.naturalpoint.com/forum/...oard=49&page=1

    There are several threads concerning this fault. The mod suggestion is to email a pic and description of the problem to their support email along with the camera S/N. This is what I did and the response so far was that they will send me a new one but that they are in high demand and it may be a week or two before it ships. I'll post back here when (if) I get it.

    My replacement Track Clip Pro arrived today. Good customer service, just wish they would find a fix for this weak link.
