Step 1: How Many Feet/where?

Choose device, and determine how many feet are desired, and the configuration.

Step 2: Prepare Sugru

Open two packs of Sugru, and knead together into one ball for 30 seconds.

Divide ball into 4 equal pieces. Place each piece where a foot should be and press into the device/case.

Form into a peak, and then form a slight curve into the outside-facing part of the peak (a straw or pencil can help for making a smooth uniform curve). This curve provides an indentation to keep the wrapped cord in place.

Step 3: Decorate With Extra Colored Sugru (hard/expired Is Ok!)

For decoration, make thin strips of the contrasting color of Sugru.

Hardened/expired Sugru can be cut into slices and pressed into the feet.  

It may help to cut an indentation into the soft Sugru of the foot, and then insert the contrasting material.

Press gently to even the edges.

Let sit 24 hours to cure.

Step 4: Usage Instructions

To use: Wrap a headphone cord around the feet and tuck the jack into the cord.

Enjoy!

    I like to dual function of cord "caddy" and shock-feet. Clever. As That-One-Dude says, it would make the device less pocket friendly, If the nubs were only as big as they needed to be, and if there was a way to snap the buds into some final spot, that would be a nice mod.

    How well does this go into and come out of your pocket?
