This bracket attaches my phone to the metal shade of a small desk lamp. It is attached with a single small bolt and nut. Lamp has a weighted base and adjustable neck.

Intended to hold the phone in a steady well-illuminated position for recording videos or timelapse photography of drawings. Here is a short time lapse sketch video recorded with this clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5EMarSBe0o (The app I use to record time lapse videos is called Frameograph.)

Designed for an iPhone 5c, but other devices might fit. The clip area cross section is 59mm by 8.5mm.

I have a low-wattage compact fluorescent bulb in this lamp. Be careful if you try something similar with a bulb that gets very hot - you don't want the plastic to melt.

Note: I accidentally snapped off part of the so-called final clip. The reinforced version is actually more recent; it is slightly thicker and has ribs to strengthen the corner that broke. I'm learning design principles and PLA properties by trial and error!


Printed in PLA with 0.2 mm layer height, 3 top & bottom layers, 2 perimeters, and 0.1 rectilinear infill. I had to drill out the hole in the base in order for the intended bolt to fit easily.
