Simple Smart Phone Wall Mount




Cheap and simple wall mount for smart phones, ideal for night time viewing if you bed is next to a wall or fitted wardrobe!

Step 1: Materials

2 push pins
1 smart phone
1 wall or suitable surface

Step 2: Build It

• Push the first pin into the wall at desired height (eye level if using for viewing) leave about a 2mm gap from surface (wall) to the base of pin (to increase the angle of the phone to aid stability).

• Hold you phone level against the first pin then push the second pin into the wall at a width that will support both portrait and landscape orientation if desired (I use a landscape spacing as it's more stable)

• Job done :)

That's a real good idea, I made it and I stuck it in my wardrobe cause that would be stronger. However what i didnt know was that the pins were old. Lets just say i now have two decent sized holes in my wardrobe filled with the metal (snapped) bit of the pin... Awkward.

Oh no...
Get some pliers on them and try again. Good Luck :)

I dunno, this looks like it's just asking to tip over and fall! How stable is it? My concern is that any surface soft enough to let me push in a pin would also be soft enough to let it fall out. :)

Ha ha, yeh it's two pins in a wall, I wouldn't try doing pull ups on them :)

I use this next to my bed its about a foot and a half off the ground over a soft carpet but just a few inches off my bed where it would land should it fall. The pins are in my wooden wardrobe and are very firm (took some effort to push them in) + I use a landscape only spread 9cm gap between the pins and my phone is a iPhone 5S (not the one in the pic) and fits in the pins really snugly. But yes if this was used on a plaster wall the pins would work loose with use. So yes it's only a little hack wouldn't recommend it as a permanent solution as phones don't come cheap. Cheers for the feedback :)

Aw man, I was hoping to see pull ups on the pushpins.
