I'm in the process of manufacturing and selling a piece of equipment that offers safer way to wear your extension microphone. I usually see Officers wearing it on their shoulders and turning their head away from the perp to communicate on their radio. TACLIP is a safer option, and I am not sure how to teach the old dogs a new trick. I usually get the "not broke, don't fix" or "it always went there" answers. I would like to hear from others what approach might be effective.

ECSD, there are so many of these type of things out. From the retractable keyholder thing that lets you pull the mic from the shoulder, to the wireless mic, I don't know what you have in mind, but I can't think of anything new. Good luck, bro. What is a TACLIP and how does it work? We won't pull any punches here, trust me.

The problem with the other products is they use the old uniform epaulet approach by either adding MORE stuff to your shoulder or hanging some long floppy strap from it.
TACLIP is my "tactical-clip" solution. It uses the velcro on your vests shoulder straps to keep your mic in front of you. Once you adjust it to your uniform shirt, you can't see it or feel it. It's tactically safer because you have to turn your head away to talk or listen. It keeps your mic at the correct operating position even while in a foot chase. You don't have to move it each time you put on or take off your coat. Clipping your mic to your shirt just doesn't work.
I just got my patent pending and finished the website and I know nothing about marketing. Many of my coworkers field tested it for me and are wearing it but I can't count on just word of mouth.

Try getting it on the shop link here. Mass email of your web site works too. Persistance is the key. How about posting a photo of it here?
