There I was, bored, alone in my cube with nothing to entertain me but work and the movies and videos stored on my iPod touch. Alas there was no practical way I could watch my iPod and appear to be working. I searched my desk for something that might help.
At first, none of my office supplies seemed to be of any use unless I wanted to trust my iPod to some cheap transparent tape. There was one thing that seemed to have possibilities. A large metal paper clip. Not a binder clip, but a single piece of wire bent into a spring shape allegedly capable of holding a small stack of papers together.
What I came up with worked so well, I decided to share it with.. um.. The Internet.
Before we get started. I want to say that I did this Instructable at home because cameras are not allowed where I work. I may not like the place, but I do follow the rules, especially when potential witnesses are near. The only tool I used to create the original was my Leatherman. For the Instructable, I used a few extra items to simplify the explanation.
Here's how I did it.
I hope you find it useful or at least amusing.
Step 1: Gather Tools and Materials
3. Leatherman, pliers or anything that will help you make small bends in a paper clip
4. A paper clip
Optional - Board With a Nail in It
You can use a board with a nail in it to make some of the larger bends.
