…….. The headphones are broken.
Now you get to listen to Elmo until the next civilized exit pops up.
This little idea helps keep your headphones from being trampled on the floor boards. Thus, extending the life of your headphones and your sanity.
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
You’ll need a plastic coat hanger and rubber end caps. The plastic hangers are found at any home store and the rubber end caps come from the wire shelving section at any home improvement store.
For tools you’ll need a rotary tool, pair of diagonal cutting pliers, and a heat gun.
Step 2: Grind Out the Corner Support
If your hanger has it, simply grind it out with a rotary tool. Wear eye protection.
The second picture shows before and after.
Step 3: Cut, Heat, and Bend
Heat the opposite side in the same manner but this time do it to form a hook. Once the plastic becomes pliable, twist the hook 90 degrees as you bend it down. You’ll want the closed hook side to be perpendicular to the open hook side. See the pictures.
Step 4: Adjust and Fit the Caps
Fit the plastic caps onto the cut ends of the hanger.
Step 5: Place It
Make sure the long portion of the hanger rests in front of the other support bar. See the pictures.
Lower the head rest again to keep it in place.
