3D Printed and Tested.

It's used to seal the idling USB ports on your electronic devices, protecting them from dust, coffee / water spill etc. The plug part seals the USB port.

Please note:
USB ports must have 10mm horizontal or 7.5mm vertical clearance, if you want to use multiple plugs.

    you should add a lanyard hole so you can attach it to the USB coz these things look like they get lost very easily maybe at the end of the stem

    Neat! I love things like this, both aesthetic and functional. Really this should go in the 'for sale' section of the forums, or have a little write up about how you designed this, though either way this is really quite neat. Thanks for posting.

    Hi Kryptonite, Thanks for your comment. I use Solidworks to design this, plus a SONY DSC-H10 camera. It is made by 3D print technology and is available for sale at Shapeways, a company who runs the 3D print. You may check out or buy it by clicking the link "Buy This Creative Design at Shapeways" in the caption above.
