It's the accessory you need to make your phone drop-proof.

Strong and reliable

With a tough injection molded ABS plastic base, 3M VHB (very high bond) adhesive, and a strong yet comfortable polyester strap, you can count on the Wild Straps Phone Lanyard!

Slim and small

Being only 6.5 mm tall at the highest point, and around a square inch in size, the Wild Straps Phone Lanyard won't get in the way. Chances are your phone is thicker than the gadget itself. The minimal profile and tapered edges allow for snag-less use in and out of pockets.

Adjustable custom fit

All of our straps come with an easily adjustable buckle which allows for a comfortable secure fit around your wrist.

For our launch we will be offering 4 different colors for the plastic base: Black, White, Red, and Blue. In the future we will work with our manufacturer to provide even more colors.

About the product

What is it?

Think of it as a camera strap for your phone. It is pro-active protection that minimizes the risk of dropping your phone. It saves your phone from damaging drops when taking pictures, texting, or just holding it.

How does it work?

It attaches to the back of your phone via a strong adhesive tape.

Just peel off the liner on the tape, place down the plastic base on the back of your phone, and press down firmly for 60 seconds, although we recommend waiting 24 hours before heavy use.

 Development and prototyping

Initial idea and first sketches. I got the idea for this when I was taking a picture over water and feared I would drop my phone.
