Ever pull your earbuds out of your pocket, see the tangled mess, and wonder how much more abuse they will put up with? Yeah! Me too! I happen to like the set of earbuds in the photo so much that I've cut back the wires and soldered them several times already.

Then I started using my 3D design brain and said, "Brain! Make me something to save my earbuds!" So it did! It took a couple of revisions, but the result is this cute little thing that's smaller than the average thumb drive so it doesn't require gobs of pocket real estate. Good job 3D design brain!


This thing is easy, easy to make.

  1. Download.
  2. Print with 0.25mm resolution or finer
  3. Add small safety pin through the holes provided, and then


The world is now safe from the earbud destructors that lie in wait inside of every dark pocket of society. No more evil super knots in your pocket. Our job is done here.

Uh, when I open this in netfabb, is shows it being 1.4mm long and 0.4mm high. At what scale will this thing print correctly?

The measurement should be in inches, not mm. Check the default settings on your program... that might be the issue.
