This only works with generation two touches that come in the hard plastic shell.
- The Clear hard shell
- The USB cable
- The plastic cradle adapter
- Sand Paper
- Marker and masking tape
- Hot glue
- A drill/drill press or Dremel
Step 1: Mark Where You Want to Cut and Make the Hole
Leave at least 2 mm around the edge so that the cradle will have something to sit on when you cut the hole
I used a Drill press to punch holes around the corners to keep them a bit round. I then used a dremel to cut the straight edges and then grind the hole into shape
Step 2: Cut a Hole for the USB Cable
Step 3: Glue the Plastic Cradle Into the Hole
Step 4: Sand the Bottom of the Cradle
Do a test to make sure that the plug does deep enough.
Step 5: Glue the USB Cable to the Cradle
Be vary careful to not get any glue onto the plug or onto the ipod, as glue will get into the port and ruin your ipod
Step 6: Assemble and Enjoy
If you have trouble keeping it closed try to bend the cable that comes out of the ipod end plug so that it doesn't push against the other shell and it should stay shut.
I used the Ipod desk mat to prevent slipping.
Enjoy your sleek and sexy ipod dock that cost you absolutely nothing!
