Introduction: Bouncy Sugru Bumper for IPhone 4 and IPhone 4S + NEW VIDEO
Step 1: Get Ready
To get started, make sure your hands and your phone are clean
If you don't have any sugru, you can buy it from www.sugru.com
Step 2: Open Sugru
A Smart Hack (5g) sachet of sugru is plenty for this hack - once you open the sachet you have about 30 minutes to work with sugru before it starts to cure so take your time - work the material in your hands for a few seconds, this makes it work better
Step 3: 4 Corners = 4 Pieces of Sugru
Tear the sugru into 4 even pieces, one for each corner of your phone.
Press a piece of sugru onto each corner (be careful not to cover the buttons, speakers or camera lens) - then fold the sugru over onto the glass on the front and back of the phone.
Step 4: Get the Shape Right for You
Once the sugru is in place, get the shape right - gently touch the sugru repeatedly to tweak the shape, don't panic, you have plenty of time.
Step 5: Leave Sugru Cure
Once you are happy with you hack, leave it somewhere to cure overnight - sugru cures to a lovely silicone rubber
Step 6: OK - But Does Sugru Come Off?
Yes, sugru is removable - carefully tear the sugru from your phone
Step 7: Wipe It Clean
There will be some residue left behind, to clean this off, simply scrape it with the back of your finger nail then wipe it clean with a cloth.
Step 8: Good to Know:
sugru bonds well to the metal on the frame of the iPhone 4 but does not bond to the glass (there is some funny coating there)
sugru does bond to previous iPhone screens!
We have a be nice policy.
