Yo, this instructable features one of the most undeniably, infinitely useful office objects ever made: The Binder Clip. You can find them almost anywhere, and their uses, both intended and repurposed, are limitless. In this little 'ible, I'll show you how I made a phone mount for pretty darn cheap (college and having money don't usually go together). Read on!
1 Large binder clip
1-2 Rubber bands or hair ties
2 lengths 6 inches long of Paracord, color your choice
Notes on materials:
Binder Clip - size it to your phone, the handles should have to open a bit to fit the phone in
Rubber bands / hair ties - I used black hair ties (...no, not a girl, just have a sister) because i thought it looked more pro
Alright, grab your materials and lets start.
Step 1: Finger Prep
In this step, we prepare the fingers that will hold the phone. I am referring, of course, to the silvery parts of the binder clip.
Even though this is one of the more crucial steps, it is very easy. Just take the two metal 'handles' off of the binder clip. Put them in a vice and clamp the rounded end up to where it bends. Tap with a mallet of hammer until you have about 20 degrees of bend in the part. Repeat for both fingers.
