Snap Spot: Keep Your Phone Safe When Taking Photos With The iPhone Wrist Strap
Last week on Snap Spot I shared some great gift ideas for your favorite iPhoneographer, and this week, I’m going to take a closer look at one of the items that I featured, the iPhone Wrist Strap. This handy little accessory is designed to screw in to the bottom of your iPhone, firmly attaching a leather wrist strap that keeps your iPhone safe even when you’re taking pictures in precarious locations, such as over bodies of water or out windows. Photojojo. The first part is the metal strap attachment which screws into the bottom of your phone. It comes with the attachment, two tiny screws, and an iPhone-sized screwdriver to remove the original iPhone screws. This accessory does require you to remove the screws from the bottom of your iPhone near the speaker, which can be tricky. Those screws are tiny, so make sure to work in an area with good lighting and have an extra bag handy to store the screws that you remove. I’m not going to lie - taking those screws out was a bit frustrating, but once I had the accessory attached, it was all worth it. The bracket that screws into your phone is a high quality metal, and it does not interfere in any way with the speakers or the charging port at the bottom. It’s flush with the bottom of the phone, and does not stick out obtrusively. I was able to use a case and I was able to charge my phone with no problems, even with the strap attachment installed.
