In this case, I managed to craft a design for a phone dock made out of 3 large binder clips. The dock uses one of the "arms" from one of the clips as the base, thus allowing a gap for you to put a charging cable through. Simple to make yet effective as a phone stand.
There's already a ton of binder clip stands out there, but I wanted something that could accept a phone charging cable so my phone could charge while it sat there. This one uses only three same-sized binder clips as well, whereas others out there tend to use more.
- 3 large binder clips
- [optional] Foam and glue
- [optional] One small binder clip
Step 1: The Base - Putting it together
While you're at it, remove both of the arms from the other large binder clip.
