Tired of having a Usb thumb drive around your neck all the time?
Be Fashionable by making a BELTCLIP HOLDER from a sport cigarette lighter.

Step 1: a better way

I got tired of having my thumb drive around my neck, I keep at least one in my pocket but I also keep a lot of keys and metal stuff that can possibly damage a plastic thumb drive.
I started thinking about modifying one of my pocket knives to hold a flash drive but quickly realized that doing so would take a lot of work. I eventually found something even better.
I remembered that I had a sport lighter that clips onto a belt loop. It also had a protective fliptop.
All I had to do was take the guts out, plus a little sanding and glueing.



mini Screwdriver- straight edge



sandpaper/ or Dremmil tool grinder

super glue

epoxy glue

The COLIBRI CX SPORT LIGHTER can be bought at Fry's Electronics store. And also Ebay.
There are many websites that sell these lighters.
Prices vary from $17.99 to $29.99.


Who actually puts a USB around their neck? seriously lol (Apart from older teachers)
people that work in finance's among other things. <br />
i am in awe
yay portal
i have the same knife but in silver
For that certain model of lighter, the top doesn't open at least 180 degrees. Wouldn't that make it a bit troublesome to fit it in the usb drive alongside your computer?~
It's just a holder, pull the thumbdrive out to use.

This is cool!<br/>The only problem I saw in it was...<br/><em>how does the flash drive plug into the computer if the cap is jutting out so far?</em><br/>
