Cell phone Charms and Straps

How to Attach Charms to a Phone?

Have you grown tired of the look of your phone but aren't ready to upgrade? Phone charms allow you to personalise your phone and set it out from the phones of your friends, coworkers, and family members. While many pre-smartphone phones had a designated spot for dangling a charm or attaching a carrying strap, many smartphone devices necessitate a bit more ingenuity when it comes to phone charm attachment.

Installation of a Simple Charm

The simplest approach is to use a built-in charm hanger, which may be adjusted for phones that don't have one. On the upper edge of the phone, look for an indentation with a little bar within - this is where the charm should be. If the charm does not come with a little strap or loop, buy a cell phone strap, which is a narrow loop of strong rope with a jump ring on the end.

As you would attach a key to a key ring, open the jump ring and attach it to the loop on the charm. Push the strap or cable loop through the depression in the phone and out the other side by squeezing it flat. Pull the charm tight after pulling it through the loop. The charm dangles from the other end of the rope, which is looped around the bar in the charm hanger.

Keep Charms Safe in the Case

If your phone doesn't have a built-in hanger, use the cover to secure the charm. Remove the case and thread the strap loop through the headphone jack hole in the case. To tighten the cord loop around the phone case, push the charm dangling from the other end of the loop through the loop, then gently tug on the charm. Replace the case of your phone.

If the charm's rope is thin and flexible, this approach works well. If required, dental floss or waxed thread can be utilised.

Take a look at the Adhesive Option.

When your phone does not have a case or you can't attach the charm to the cover for whatever reason, you'll need to use an alternative approach. Charms may be installed on a phone without a case using small adhesive or suction-based hooks. A tiny protruding loop on an adhesive button or pad gives a location to thread the charm's cable through. This add-on loop may be attached to the phone or case in any location.

Because the charm is in the wrong location, it might impact the phone's operation, obscure a camera lens, or conflict with how you're used to using the phone, placement is quite essential. Consider putting the charm on the phone's top edge, where it will be the least noticeable. Keep in mind that the charm will be projected from the phone's rear. When you use this approach to connect a charm to your phone, it may wobble when you set it down.

Take a look at the Jack Jumper

Another option to fasten a phone charm to a phone model without a charm holder is to use a plastic connector that fits into the headphone socket. If you want a quick way to connect a phone charm, this is it - as long as you are prepared to remove the charm plug everytime you need to use the headphone port. A cord loop and a clasp are already attached to these plugs, making it simple to attach any sort of charm. Press the plug end into the headphone jack after hanging the charm in the clasp.
