    One hand only....

    Picture this: treo is in the holster on your belt (right-hand side). Extend your hand like you are about to shake hands with someone. Now move your arm back until you can grab the treo, but don't turn your hand at all. Now grab the sides of the treo (lower section) with your thumb and index finger. Now your middle finger (bent) should be able to press the lower clip....

    Works same way on left-side...

    I do it a bit differently: Thumb on one side. Middle, ring and pinky finger on the other. Index finger on tab. Use the index to push tab while oher fingers grab phone. Release into whole hand. My index finger is stronger than my middle finger so it felt more natural. (I poke my nose with my index finger and never throw the "bird", maybe that's why my index finger is stronger )

    i'm still confused. your thumb and index finger are next to each other on your hand. if they grab the edges, then your middle finger has to cross over the index finger to push the bottom of the clip. either we call our fingers some different or i'm really uncoordinated.

    Isn't the phone upside-down in your hand using this method???

    Yes, my thumb and index finger ARE next to each other. If I grab the lower edges of my Treo, then my middle finger is now actually BELOW my thumb and index finger, so I just press the lower clip and out it comes....

    i think i got it now. you put your thumb on the back part of the phone bottom and your index on the front part. i can do it now but it's terribly awkward..IMO.

    oh well, to each their own.

    No back and front, I use the sides of the phone. EGrips help a lot. When it comes out of the holster it is *almost* properly positioned to start using it....a quick adjustment and it's good to go. I will try to take pics tonight.

    by back I mean the side closest to your bum and front is obviously the other.

    man this sounds confusing.

    the best way I can describe it is to put your hand in your pocket on the side that has the Treo. Remove the hand w\o moving your wrist until the thumb is on the 'back' side of the phone and the index finger is on the 'front' side. The middle finger can then be used to push down on the bottom clip.

    I think I have carpal tunnel now.

    well it took a while but I see the difference in what you're doing, EOJ, and what I do. Seems the main difference is that your index finger is o(

    well that last post (and this one) are being done via the Treo, so I'm suffering from the wireless post malaise.
    I see how your method works, EOJ - you turn your hand and wrist differently than I do. Your hand is positioned kind of like how people rest their hands on their hips. I come at my holster from the top, and you approach yours kind of from the rear/back.
    Hope this makes it!!

    That's what it sounds like to me, but I took my method straight from the included instructions, so I admit I'm a little confused about all the confusion. My question about your method is do you have to flip the phone around or switc hands before using it...seems to be it would be upside down otherwise.

    yes, you do have to flip it around before answering it. I guess it's just personal preference and practice because I'd be more afraid of dropping it your & proclips way than the way nrosser & I do it. I would imagine you would be just the opposite.

    the moral of the story: there's more than 1 way to unsheath a treo. :-)

    Yeah, I do a little gunslinger flip after I take out the phone, but it's quite a secure flip with my egrips on.

    To an outsider, I have to say this is slightly humorous thread.

    I just received my Proclip today....and the included insructions seemed pretty good for removal procedure. Would it be worth while to scan and post these instructions (including pictures)?

    I don't see any issue with being able to remove with a single hand.

    I think that is part of the humor for me, I could picture you guys trying to figure out how the other one was doing things.
