Buy at Shapeways

3D Printed and Tested.


It's used to seal the idling USB ports on your electronic devices, protecting them from dust, coffee / water spill etc. The plug part seals the USB port.

Please note:
USB ports must have 10mm horizontal or 7.5mm vertical clearance, if you want to use multiple plugs.

you should add a lanyard hole so you can attach it to the USB coz these things look like they get lost very easily maybe at the end of the stem

Do you have any of these plugs for HDMI Ports on Laptops?

Hi sokamiwohali, not yet. For now the design is for USB port only.

Neat! I love things like this, both aesthetic and functional. Really this should go in the 'for sale' section of the forums, or have a little write up about how you designed this, though either way this is really quite neat. Thanks for posting.

Hi Kryptonite, Thanks for your comment. I use Solidworks to design this, plus a SONY DSC-H10 camera. It is made by 3D print technology and is available for sale at Shapeways, a company who runs the 3D print. You may check out or buy it by clicking the link "Buy This Creative Design at Shapeways" in the caption above.
