Ive owned two of these with the 1st lasting a month and the 2nd two days. The clip is weak at the metal pin and breaks easily. I really like the holster part, but they need to upgrade the material for the clip.
Griffin Elan Clip for iPhone 3GS
User: k zim, Feb 3, 2011
easy access to buttons and screen
clip does not grab well and no protection for top corners
When I bought the Griffin Elan Clip for iPhone 3GS I was actually looking for the older style which I had previously owned ( the clip had broken off after several months).
I was somewhat disappointed in the new design of the Griffin Elan Clip for iPhone 3GS - two reasons - First, the phone goes directly into the holster without any protective cover so if there is an oops I dropped it the potential for a damaged screen from hitting the top 2 exposed corners is very high.
Second - the clip does not grab securely enough to keep it securely attached to clothing or belt, and it becomes dislodged without you feeling the tug so I am constantly afraid of loosing my expensive phone someplace and not realizing it.
As I said earlier - I much preferred the older model whith the separate clear protective phone cover and much better clip - sorry.

I bought a Griffin Elan Clip for my 3G. My shirt frequently got caught between the phone and the clip, which would cause the phone to slip out. The clip regularly came off my belt. And eventually the phone just popped out on its own in the parking lot, and I got to replace the glass screen. There must be better holsters out there - this isnt one of them.

Nice style, easy access to buttons
Clip not well designed
I have owned this product for about three weeks now and it has fallen off of my belt twice causing my new phone to hit the parking lot. The clip is weak and slippery. A CLIP REDESIGN IS CRITICALLY NEEDED. Do not buy the current version without testing it in a store first.
Loved my first Gen elan clip...but not so much this one

small and not cumbersome. easel clip nice idea.
clip is not strong, phone can fly off belt very easily
I love this company, I loved my first elan clip. my iphone (1st gen) was protected and in near perfect condition when I upgraded to the 3G. So I bought griffins new solution for the 3G. Yesterday while going down some stairs, little did I know but my iphone was hanging on my belt by a thread due to the smooth clip ends and the weak spring. I was so used to the heartiness of the old one, I didnt even think about it. The phone when flying off my belt, and skidded across the pavement much to my horror.
I immediately called bill at griffin to tell him about the ineffective clip. He said they are getting some reports and may redesign.
I currently am looking for another case solution for my phone as I will not use this one again until its redesigned.
