Never lose your cell phone again: This ingenious $7 lanyard turns it into a necklace

Never lose your cell phone again: This ingenious $7 lanyard turns it into a necklace

Do you or your loved ones always misplace your phones? Hey, it happens! As we get older, our memory doesn’t stay that sharp and suddenly it becomes really easy to leave those little devices on the counters in the shops, on the tables in the restaurants wherever it’s not in our pockets. While replacing a phone can be expensive, preventing the problem in the first place is super cost-effective. Enter: this handy universal cell phone lanyard, which you can snag for just $7 on Amazon. Turn phones into necklaces and it would make the perfect “hint” gift for forgetful family members or yourself, if you are prone to losing things!


Would you rather cough up a lot of cash for a new phone or spend just $7 to make sure it never lets you out of sight? It’s a no-brainer if you ask us!

Let’s face it: when you carry an item literally everywhere like your phone, it’s bound to disappear at some point. And while there are those lucky instances where we remember it before we leave the parking lot or a Good Samaritan returns it, there are also times when that phone is gone forever. Rather than coughing up hundreds or even a thousand for a replacement, why not proactively prevent the accident by wearing your phone on this lanyard instead?

It couldn’t be easier to use (aka, senior-friendly!). All you need to do is slide the rectangular panel through the phone case’s charging slot, slide your phone over to secure it in place, clip the strap to the loop and voila! You got yourself a phone necklace that would be nearly impossible to lose. Note that you’ll want to make sure you have a full coverage case, as it won’t work with half cases.

What makes this lanyard more convenient than those wearable phone cases is that you’ll still have full access to your phone’s screen, camera, and charging port. While it’s perfect for everyday use, it’s especially useful when you’re on the go and want to make sure your phone is always with you, and it will also free your hands if you have a lot to carry. Plus, it’s not just for phones! You can clip it to ID cards, whistles, earphones and even safety gear to ensure calling for help is always an option.

On the comfort side, the soft drawstring won’t dig into your neck, and you can choose from 13 fun colors (prices vary). If you’re looking to stock up (a great idea!), these lanyards are also available in multipacks of two or four for even less per piece.

Over 1,000 Amazon shoppers have given the Universal Cell Phone Lanyard their five-star seal of approval. One fan writes: “I got this because I don’t like to put my phone down and forget about it. My daughter suggested one of these and I looked into it. [I] thought the round cord would be less likely to cause discomfort, and it’s adjustable so you can wear it as a long necklace or as a shoulder strap like a purse. I don’t want to leave the house without it now.”

“With this simple attachment, I no longer have to worry about it falling out of my pocket or leaving it somewhere,” shared one impressed reviewer. “It doesn’t block the charger or any of the other ports. The lanyard is long enough that you can choose to use your phone without ever letting it go off your neck. I’ve tested/pulled it a few times and it tolerates a lot of abuse. I needed.”

“I’m 74 and… I’m at risk of falling while walking!” wrote a satisfied elder. “A couple of weeks ago I had a little fall in the bathroom and thank goodness I didn’t hurt myself. The only thing I thought I could do to feel safer was buy a safety alarm device to wear around my neck and pay a monthly fee. At this point, I really can’t afford to do that… I went to my favorite place, Amazon, and found this lanyard. It looks nice, very durable and comfortable. I haven’t forgotten my phone even once . Something like this could actually save my life. Safety first!”
