Sorry...I know. I was going through trying to get things organized and such and found these two in the "good" box. Doesn't happen often and usually they are horrid.

Tried the link several times, still not looking for a credit card reader.
I too encounter this issue, I think Expedition Portal or something is hijacking the link and using vgilink redirects.

Go to this url: https://squareup.com/store/KCK

If that ends up being a hyperlink, copy the text word for word (do not click the link) and it should bring you there.

It's improperly handing you off to Square's credit card reader. Thats where his shop is setup on, their platform and its' leading you to their home page.

Try the link a second time. It did the same thing for me the first time. Second time, worked like a charm.

I see the same reader landing page when I click the link posted by kentoe. not sure whats going on there.

https://squareup.com/store/KCK let me see what happens with this one. So EDIT: its still directing to the reader page.
Lets try the direct to radio mount https://squareup.com/store/KCK/item/radio-mount-w-nut

EDIT #2 - The direct link also re-directs to the free reader. My link from facebook works, as well as copy pasting the link into the browser. Seems to be related to this forum. Looks like the forum is affiliated with square in some way...perhaps causing a re-direction as though from an ad? I see how frustrating this can be.

In the mean time, you can PM me as well.

EDIT #3 - Posted in the help section of the forum.

Just to clarify, literally copy the text (do not right click and use copy url, literally just the text itself) " https://squareup.com/store/KCK " (DO NOT CLICK THE LINK) to get to your store lol Hope they can get this sorted out in the help section!

Literally just bought the BF-F8HP on Amazon and this will fit that correct? From what I read in your original post it seemed to be the case.

Would you advise spray painting if I didn't want the pure metal look?

IF you break off the tab in the top notch it will fit the thick battery version.
You can spray paint in any color you like.

If anyone is interested in the build quality... ... ... ...

I accidentally ran mine over in the driveway and it didn't even flinch*. There's a small scuff on the one corner but no deformation......



*The paint was drying.....

I'll be away for a couple weeks, back at the end of the month. Store is set to not take orders (at least it should be).
