Step 1: Materials...

then heating the part of the plastic that needs to bend and it should look like this

Step 3: Making the Usb Cap Part 2

after the bending process, each end of the bended plastic must be covered so i bonded the other ends of the bended plastic to another plastics by melting both ends of the plastics, but you can use glue instead, i dont have any glue so i just melted the plastic.

    Working with plastic like this can be tricky, you did well to get it together. Can you add a picture of the cap in use?

    just look on my other instructable about my modified mp3 player, the picture was there

    Yes I saw that one (after this) - should be easy to drop an image in, not critical but it's nice to finish on the final thingy.
