It’s a rare thing when you find a product that is equal parts simple and useful. The Petite Loop “phone leash” is an incredibly handy, lightweight accessory that sticks to the back of your phone under your case. First you peel back the adhesive backing on the ribbon of your choice and attach it to the back of your phone. You then pull the .5 millimeter thick ribbon through the charging hole on the bottom and snap your case back on (it is claimed to be compatible with all phones ). You now have a handy way to be hands-free with your phone if you are without pockets, want to hang it on the back of the bathroom door so it doesn’t fall in the toilet, or want to keep it from getting snatched as the subway doors close (happened to my friend). At only .8 grams, the ribbon adds no noticable weight to the phone.
But how strong is it really? You know those wall hanging tabs from 3M that only come off if you pull them horizontally from the product but will not budge if you tug vertically? It’s that strong. In fact, the manufacturer says it can hold up to at least 33 lbs. of weight (that means you literally can carry a 3 year old from it if you needed to). I moved my ribbon about two weeks ago to test if it would still be as strong afterwards … and it was. I also gave it a good two minute twirl on my finger with the fear my phone would go flying into the wall, but it stayed put. A really useful, original product that makes life better. That’s good design. Petite Loop comes in solids, patterns, and animal print designs. From $6.30 CAD.
