Intro: Stop Losing Earphone Buds
As my earphones get older the buds become loose and tend to fall off when I remove them from my pocket or if they get pulled from my ears. I have already lost a couple giving me cause to seek ways to fix this permanently.
My solution is to use sewing thread to tie them on. I use black thread because it becomes almost invisible against the buds. I make sure I tie it tightly enough so that the silicone is compressed into the grooves on the earphones. I used the Clove Hitch knot to maintain the pressure on the silicone as I finished tying the knot.
