About this project
The FONEHOOK Story
The FONEHOOK project started as an idea I had after nearly destroying my iPhone when I got out of bed. I was tired of tripping on my iPhone at night and wanted a cheap stand to hang on the wall next to my bed. I was surprised to to find that there aren't any low cost or easy solutions available for hanging your iPhone or any other cell phone.
FONEHOOKS will be available in black or white to match any decor in your house or apartment.
The basic design for FONEHOOK was conceived after visiting the local hardware store and seeing all the different picture hooks and other wall hangers that were available. I thought it would be a great addition to the store's selection if someone invented a cheap, simple way to "hang up the phone". After trying some of these for a quick solution, I knew a better way had to be found.
After a few months of trial and error, the FONEHOOK was born.
And, YES the FONEHOOK will work with other brand cell phones too!
FONEHOOK keeps your phone neatly off the floor.
I have always wanted to invent something but it can be expensive to get started. The basic design for the FONEHOOK is simple but the mold is not. I have ordered some 3D printed prototypes and finished all the testing. A mold for mass production is not cheap and is needed for this type of product. I have been quoted $14,000.00 for a five cavity mold and all the design work to finish this project. A FONEHOOK retail package of three will cost $19.99 but the Kickstarter community now has a chance to get a better deal and help fund this idea.

With the charger cable attached, it is locked in place securely and can't move side to side. The tabs are designed to exactly fit the charger connector. Without the charge cable, it is still very secure. I have a few of them hanging up around my place next to outlets and they work very well. It will hold the iPhone with or without an iPhone case attached.
