Thread: Handle for touchscreen cell phone

  1. #1

    Handle for touchscreen cell phone

    Just in case anyone's interested, I got sick of continually hanging up on callers, so tonight I used heavy duty Velcro to stick a door knob onto the back casing. It's only been a few hours, but so far it's great! It's actually adhered to a hard plastic cover, not the actual phone itself, so if I hate it I can just dump it. I also have a Griffin Survivor case on my ipad mini with a hand-e-holder łeg strap attached with 3m dual lock.

    What do other people do with these devices?

    I saw this in sky mall, and thought it might work for quads

    Maybe you can adapt this idea to your cell phone. NL adapted our remote control for our cable/television with two small squares of adhesive velcro hooks attached to the back of the remote and a piece of 1 inch elastic with small pieces of Velcro loops sewn to the elastic. Pictures are posted below.

    It is a very simple solution and doesn't get in the way of any of the control buttons.

    All the best,

    Great idea. I bought this stand for my ipad that has a handle, it also doubles as a stand. The handle works great when I want to take a picture.

    I've seen something like that handle/stand on television news. The reporters can securely carry their iPads and have the other hand free.

    The remote control for the cable system was heavy at the top end and would flop out of my "no grip" hand. NL whipped this up in about 5 minutes and it has worked great and completely solved my problem.

    All the best,

    I got one of those for my phone and it does work for me. I use it on my forearm not the upper arm.
