Picture of Ipod Dock From Metal Hanger

This dock can be made in less then 5 minutes and uses only household supplies.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

1. Hanger

2. Pliers

3. Wire Cutters

4. Optional and iPod for measure

Step 2: Cut the Hanger

Cut the long end of the hanger in the spots shown in the photo. The reason youre leaving that corner is so that the ipod doesnt slide of the dock. Even though the photo only shows one side cut both.

Step 3: Bend the Metal

Bend the metal in the picture as shown. This is where the ipod will sit. Notice that you ben at the tip of the cutters, I thought that was a pretty good measurement, if you dont have the same size pliers its about 6 1/2 inches in. Make sure the tips are facing up, not to the sides!!

Step 4: Bend Again

Take your ipod and put it horizantially sitting in the little edges. Bend the edges backwards, starting about a quarter inch or a half inch above that.

Step 5: Your Done!!

You're finished!!! Easy right? Plus its really stable. Please rate. Message me or comment if you have any questions.

3 stars because it's good but you miscapitalized iPod in the title, and as codester says, it's not a dock.

You deducted a point because he called it the Ipod instead of the iPod??? What the hell?
