I love to ride but did not have a way to safely carry my phone. The other day I saw this koozi sitting on my desk and the light came on.
I also used picture hanging wire from the dollar store.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Thread Your Wire.
The best place to mount it is on the handlebar/stem, take the appropriate measurements and mark thee koozi with a marker.
Thread the wire to be wrapped around the handlebar on each side of the stem.. This was a trial and error process until I got the right location for the wires.
Since the koozi is made out of foam, just push the wires through the koozi.
I threaded two pieces of wire at the top and one at the bottom to be wrapped around the stem (see second picture).
Step 2: Go Street Riding
After wrapping and trimming the wires, you are set to go riding on the road while having your phone in a safe place.
Step 3: Go Mountain Biking
If you are going to hit the trails, it's better to fasten your phone to prevent it from coming out due to bumps or what not.
I made a small strap out of a "1/2 in. buckle" I had in my pile of junk or you can buy them a Hobby Lobby or Walmart,. I I also cut a small piece of rubber from an old inner tube.
Fasten your phone and you are ready to go.
You could also use this to carry a small bottle of water or any other items.
