Stop Losing Earphone Buds

Introduction: 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.

    I ended up using super glue on mine and it worked for a while but the earbud eventually fell off.

    I always worry about mine coming off when I pull them out of my pocket. Very nice fix!
