Introduction: Cell Phone Wrist Band

Step 1: Cell Phone Holder

Buy a Dollar store cell phone belt holder, we like the magnetic closer

Step 2:

Remove the belt clip and rivet, and then cut slot in each side about the center, with utility knife

Step 3: Get Velcro Ready

We used one sided velcro from dollar store, measured for my wrist, and then measured another piece of soft side sewn to the back of the loop side so that when it is wrapped around the wrist, it has some place to grip onto

Step 4: Slide Velcro Through Slit

We put the loop side up through the slit

Step 5: Putting On

Put it on just like a wrist watch, and wrap the velcro around wrist and trim to length.

Step 6: Install

Install cell phone

Step 7: Making It Smooth

We found the loop side under our arm was rough, so cut another piece of soft side and attach to under side of arm to make it smooth. This allows us to put coats and jackets on without taking the phone off our wrist. And more comfortable than a belt.

With jackets and coats on, it was always a problem getting at the phone when driving, this way you can open the holder and remove and open the phone with one hand. We like it, and it is comfortable to wear.

Step 8: Finished

The end product, try it, you will like it.

Well, sometimes, some places, these things look worth stealing. If concealed under baggy-pants like a knife? L

"these things look worth stealing" Any cellphone is considered worth! thats why have a cellphone holder in my belt and the actual phone is in my pocket.
