About: Journalism and English student with a penchant for crafting. You can probably find me locked in my room, making something.

I know everyone is sick of tangled earphones. By simply attaching a zip, all of your tangling problems are solved, and plus - they also look really cool! This is a fun life hack which is actually incredibly helpful, and saves you all that time you spend un-knotting earphone cords.

What you'll need:

  • Earphones
  • A zip
  • A needle and thread

If you enjoy this project, please vote for it in the Zip It Good contest!

Step 1: Stitch Fabric Around Cord

Fold the fabric edge of the zip around the earphone cord and stitch it down.

Step 2: Repeat

After finishing the one side, repeat on the other side, and your tangled earphone problems are solved. :)

So this is where American Hacker got the idea from, I've made one of these with hot-glue

This is genius! I never would have thought about this but seems like a great solution! What size zipper did you purchased?

As a slight aside I read an article in a UK paper about this, if you loop round the plug to the phones and knot they'll never tangle.
Not great for the cables, and certainly not as cool though!

Is this your original idea? Cause I saw these being sold on AliExpress.
