1 - Get yourself an iPhone 5. 2 - Get one of Apple's Lightning Dock Adapters. 3 - Print one of these. 4 - Attach the Apple Lightning Dock Adapter inside the opening using the adhesive of your choice. (Tip: Connect the adapter to you iPhone during this step to assure proper alignment.)

Optional: A little careful Dremel work to remove the latching dimples on the sides of the lightning connector will make it easier to slide the phone on and off the dock adapter - gravity will keep it in place.
