How To: DIY - Mobile Phone Stand Made From Unused Expansion Slot Cover

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Greetings OCN!   I just wanted to share a cool thing that I have come up with.
 
I was trying to figure out a home remedy for a cheap stand that can hold my Nexus 4 upright and I discovered that if you take an old Unused Expansion slot cover, and crease it in the center makes for a perfect stand.
 
Unfortunately this only works in Landscape mode for my device as the top is slightly too heavy.  Also I made a second one to evenly distribute the weight of my Nexus 4.  Though one worked fine, it seemed to unbalanced.

Hey, great idea! Just today while watching youtube I was thinking how much better a stand would be!
Here's mine I quickly threw together, I added some tape to protect the back of my htc one.



Here's my old blackberry for size comparison.
