A clever idea. I would expect the friction fit of the duct tape and the phone would help keep it pretty secure, and some sort of a duct tape tether/guard could be fashioned to make it even more secure...perhaps if you took the flap from the original box, covered it in duct tape and tucked that back in the box, after you inserted your phone tthat would keep it super situated.

Also, looking at that design, there's all sorts of clear, thin plastic packaging that would work as a window and possibly even touch sensitive.
Not being critical, just thinking out loud as I look at your photo.


Those are great ideas! I've had a few requests from friends to make them one for their bikes. I'll keep those suggestions in mind! Thanks!

I thought about this this morning; sure enough in the trash at work, someone had thrown away a clear plastic pouch for something else, but it was that vinyl-y sort of plastic that I would think would still work on a touchpad phone!

Keep on repurposing!!


Interesting design, but the box should choose a transparent plastic material. I think I should use free time to install one to my bike .

I have never used a mobile phone application for a bike related purpose (other than Google Maps) but I am sure there are tons of apps. Thank you for the feedback!


I use "Endomondo". You can program it for all sorts of activities. It's pretty accurate too.

Where can I find anti-glare screen covers for laptops which you can still see from all angles?
