Step 1: Parts & Tools
- an outlet (one that isn't installed
- an outlet cover
- a small thin phone (i used a blackberry)
- the protective casing for the inside of an outlet
- a flat head screwdriver
- phillips screwdriver
- glue (or glue gun)
- heavy duty scissors
Step 2: Take the Outlet Apart
take out the screws in the corners
then pry the plastic part on top off
Step 3: Cut the Plastic Piece
cut off the plastic that is shown in the picture
Step 4: Glue the Bracket On
glue the metal piece on to the plastic that you cut off
Step 5: Glue the Buttons Back On
if your outlet had buttons glue them back in
Step 6: Cut Some More Plastic!
cut off three 3 in long 1 in wide and a one 1 1/2 piece of plastic from the outlet protector
- three 3 in by 1 in piece
- 1 1/2 in by 1 in piece
- 1 in by 1 in square
- two 3/4 in by 1/2 in
Step 7: Glue More Stuff!!
glue each of the three in long pieces onto the top and sides of the outlet cover (this will make it look like a bad installation)
then glue the two 3/4 in by 1/2 in pieces to the top of the bracket (on either sides of the screw)
Step 8: Drill a Hole
drill a hole in the middle of the 1 in by 1 in square (this will be how you hang it)
and glue it to the top of the two 3/4 in by 1/2 in pieces (make sure to also glue it to the plastic piece at the top)
Step 9: Bend It!
get the 1 1/2 in by 1 in piece and bend it to a right angle an inch down the piece
Step 10: Position and Glue
position the phone so its camera is behind a hole and put the bent piece so it holds it in the same place and it (the bent piece)
Step 11: Done!!
now put it on camera mode and hang it by the hole in the 1 in by 1 in piece
