Tactical Mic Keeper (TMK) Now Made in America

August 19, 2011  | 

Webster Innovations has moved production of its Tactical Mic Keeper (TMK) to Scottsdale, Ariz., from overseas, the company announced.

"This made-in-America launch is extremely important to us not only for what it means for our product, but for the opportunities to our country," says Brian Webster, president and chief executive of Webster Innovations. "By being made in America, the physical act of making the TMK will provide new American jobs, as well as allow us to have complete quality control over the product. We'll be able to directly oversee the manufacturing of the TMK to ensure the best results possible."

Webster is a veteran law enforcement officer who invented the TMK in 2007 as a "reliable and professional solution for the microphone retention problems that officers face when pursuing a suspect," according to the company.

With production moved to the U.S., the TMK will now be made from a stronger, more flexible polymer. To learn more about the recent move, watch the Video Announcement.

The TMK was invented to solve the problem of how to safely and professionally attach a portable microphone to an officer's uniform so that it does not fall off. It can be worn on the front of the uniform or under the shoulder strap (epaulets). Once in place, the TMK becomes invisible because it's hidden by the microphone.

The TMK keeps a microphone safely in place and keeps an officer's uniform professional in appearance because it attaches to the uniform button rather than the uniform itself. The TMK is compatible with almost all remote microphones, including devices from Motorola, Kenwood, Harris, VidMic and FreeLinc.

"We've moved production to the United States to ensure that every portable microphone user is provided with the most innovative, versatile, professional and reliable microphone retention device on the market," Webster adds.

TMK has also launched an official Facebook Page and Twitter account to directly communicate with first responders. The goal of the networks are to create a place where fans and followers can interact directly with the company and other enthusiasts, where they can discuss and review the TMK and learn about new product developments.

"Our presence on the social networks allows us greater exposure to first responders, enabling us direct contact to our end users," says Webster. "It also gives us immediate access to our customers, both local and abroad. This allows us to facilitate their needs as quickly and as easily as possible."
