Intro: Tethered-Phone Holder
Having the ability to tether your smart phone is a life-saver. But when you're sitting in close quarters, finding a place to put it can be annoying. It turns out there's a pretty simple solution. All you need is two rubber bands and your phone can be neatly stowed.
Step 1: Knot the Bands Together
Find two standard rubber bands. Loop one of the bands around the other and pull tight.
Step 2: Apply to Laptop
Stretch the combined band around opposing corners of your laptop monitor.
Now's also good time to check the bands. rubber bands tend to get weaker with prolonged exposure to light and heat, so just make sure that you don't see any signs of fatigue.
Step 3: Insert Phone
And there you have it. The phone is neatly out of the way, and surprisingly stable. I've tried it with several phones and there's no slippage to speak of. Your results may vary, but hey, it takes well less than a minute to set up. Give it a shot!
