Flip Phone K'nex Dock

Introduction: Flip Phone K'nex Dock

This is my first instructable. I also build knex guns.

I've been on this site for a while and I felt like putting something-if anything up.

I wanted to build a dock for my new SYNC so i created this dock that allows me to charge it (through the side or with the detachment of the bottom plate, from the bottom), and also holds the phone open or closed, and has open space in the back for use as a "tripod" for videos or delayed timed photos.

I get annoyed easily and I usually can't decide on what to build so if you have any suggestions, message me or email me at flames10391@comcast.net

Step 1: Assemble the Folding Part

This part keeps the phone steady so it will not fall out.

The black parts are the K'nex man ball joint connector and hand half connector. If necessary, these can be substituted with a hinged joint and a green rod.

Step 2: Angled Base Assembly

I originally had a flat base but I realized that an angled base would hold the phone better. The center of the base is a small square panel but if you don't have it you can substitute it with a white rod installed diagonally.

The angle is caused by 2 green rods in the purple/blue connectors at the front.

The second part is a yellow rod with 2 gray cogs (gears). This well keep the phone from slipping out and is installed on the top notch of the blue/purple connector

Step 3: Assemble the Back Support

This part holds the phone in place and contains 1 small square panel and 2 small triangle panels. They can be substituted for white rods placed diagonally.

Step 4: Final Assembly

In this step you will assemble the 3 major parts together

Step 5: You're Done!

Now you have a sweet dock for your phone.

    probably because the sync is just as wide so i would think. You might as well build and see because it only takes a few pieces
