This is a super simple stand for your phone, designed to be unobtrusive and with you wherever you go. The "key" simply goes between the 3.5mm headphone jack and the display, to serve as a kickstand. It's been tested with a

  • Nexus 4
  • HTC One
  • iPhone 4s
  • iPhone 5

but should also work with most other phones.

This thing was inspired by this Kickstarter: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/alisonw/keyprop-simple-smartphone-stand-self-timer-app. So if you're interested in a super high-quality product, please back their campaign (I'm not affiliated with them in any way).

Very interesting thing !
Printed it and fits very well on my Nexus 5.
One comment though: my nexus 5 is quite unstable when on this stand (see my photo in "I made one"). It tilts over on the opposite side of the stand.
Maybe a fixing could be to have the key going a bit behind the phone (i.e. the jack pin not perpendicular to the key)..
Thanks !

Nice, I might have a go at remixing it so it uses the earphone socket and will fit more phones...

Doesn't fit for iPhone 5s

That's pretty cool
