If not quite like the below, maybe just Velcro® on their belt, and one side of their controller handle?

Some do, I'm sure.

 

Personally, no, I do not.

Mike,

 

I amended my post to be a little less preposterous.

In the words of Professor Von Drake, "What does it do?". You may put items on it, but if you take a step I'm sure

the stuff will go flying. For a belt clip to hold the controller handle, how many racers will forget to unclip the leads

before walking away from the driver's stand? Time to start producing wireless controllers.

It's for drywall compound.

I came across it by accident on Ebay.

The thought of the controller on Velcro®, was more with the thought of using the feature when testing, or an emergency when you have to work on your car, midheat.

It would be fine unless you were in the lane next to Gorski. The pizza would end up on the floor with his gyrations!
