Having the ability to tether your smart phone is a life-saver. But when you're sitting in close quarters, finding a place to put it can be annoying. It turns out there's a pretty simple solution. All you need is two rubber bands and your phone can be neatly stowed.

Step 1: Knot the bands together

Find two standard rubber bands. Loop one of the bands around the other and pull tight.
Just remember that light and heat destroys rubber bands and this could end in a lost or damaged phone.
excellent point. I added a "fatigue check" to step 2.
Have to try to strike a balance between simplicity and elegance. Maybe velcro instead of rubber bands?
by all means! initially my plan was to modify the phone's belt clip so it would velcro in place. if that works for you go for it. this method struck me as the most beautiful in a macgyveresqe (totally a word) sort of way. I mean, who doesn't have 2 rubber bands in the house? It does stand out quite a bit, but damnit I'm proud! if you wanted something more understated maybe you could use a marker. if the bands are the same color as the laptop they'd probably blend in better.
THIS IS AWESOME!!! Great job!
