Welcome to the first wrist/neckstrap adapter for Apple's iPod and iPhone. Danglet simply plugs into the 30 pin dock connector port on the bottom of your iPod or iPhone, securely snapping into place, and provides a sturdy stainless steel loop through which any string or hook mounted wrist or neck strap can be attached. We provide basic wrist and neck straps with your Danglet. But, you can go ahead and use any strap you may already own or choose to buy. Danglet fits them all - all iPhones including iPhone 4/4S and all iPods (does NOT FIT any device with the new Lightning connector, plus Shuffle and original iPad). Danglet clips into the iPod or iPhone dock connector with two sturdy stainless steel hooking clips, one on each side. The internal stainless steel frame of the Danglet extends upward to provide an all-metal mounting hole for a clip, hook, or string mount strap. To mount a strap, just clip the Danglet into the bottom of the iPhone or iPod, then clip the strap of your choice into the Danglet's mounting hole. To remove the Danglet, just firmly squeeze the side buttons to release the steel clips, then pull the Danglet from the dock connector port. Simple and easy. Your order will include your Danglet strap adapter, one black braided Nylon 7-inch wrist strap, one black braided Nylon 17-inch neck strap, and usage instructions. Designed in the USA. Made in China. Also, the Apple brand "Bumper Accessory for iPhone4/4S" requires modifications to fit with Danglet. Contact us and we can assist you with this issue.

I decided to do more research on the two models that hold the ITouch from the charging port. I went on YouTube and found an excellent video where they actually tested the strength of the Danglet. It was tested with an added weigh of 40 pounds, and it was able to handle the weight without breaking or damaging the ITouch! It was at 60 pound that it finally gave way, but to my surprise, it did not damage the ITouch port at all. I read about the Japanese product and realized that in Japan EVERYONE (well, specially the "young") uses their IPhones/ITouch around their necks in this fashion (through the charging port). It is actually very trendy over there (not that I care about that and I am no spring chicken at 45). I compared both, and even though the Japanese product was cheaper, I decided on the Danglet because it contained a "hooking" clasp that the other did not.
When it arrived, I immediately connected it to my new ITouch and tried pulling it many times as hard as I could, knowing I could return this item if I felt it was unsafe or would risk my ITouch. No matter how hard I pulled, it did not come out. If you do want to take it off, all you have to do is push on the sides, and it easily comes off.
I can't understand why this idea has not caught on in the Sates, but I feel very lucky to have found this product. I know my ITouch is safe, won't fall or get damaged, and what is most important, I WON"T LOOSE IT AGAIN. This is my first review, and I felt it was important to let the public know that your fears about this product damaging or putting your ITouch at risk can be put at ease. If I do find any problems with it, I will come back and change my review. I was simply looking for a safe alternative to hold my ITouch close to me as I had already lost one ITouch. I don't wear pants all the time, so a belt clip was not a choice for using it "all the time". I may look kind of funny out there with my ITouch hanging around my neck, but I think this idea will ultimately catch on in the states as it really does provide a safe alternative to keeping that ITouch or IPhone safe from being stolen, or lost.
The Japanese model does seem to have on advantage and that is that the neck strap has a device that you can pull to shorten the length of the cord (I believe both are 17 in. long). I think it would be nice to have the option of shortening the cord when I need to (ex. while doing housework). But for now, I am very happy with my Danglet. My two cents.
I did not write the name of the Japanese product because I am not sure if I am allowed to, but if you want to find it here on Amazon, all you have to do is write "Danglet" in the search box. The search will take you to the product, and if you look right under it, you will find the Japanese version under #2. It is 5 bucks cheaper and free shipping. However, I am still happy with my version. I may buy the other one later just to physically compare them and give you a better review. Thanks for reading this.
+ Good Quality Straps; the straps and clasps are made of high quality materials
+ Includes Wrist and Neck Straps; however only one iPod adapter is included (see "Cons" below)
+ Supports All Standard iPods; the adapter firmly connects to the charge\sync port, so it works fine on both our Touch and Nano
+ Adapter Fits My Cases; if your case allows the the standard charge\sync cable to be used, it will likely allow this to connect (mine does)
- Neck Strap does not have a "safety breakaway clasp" that most corporate issued neck strap ID card carriers and referee whistle lanyards have to prevent neck injury if the strap becomes caught
- Adapter (which connects to the iPod charge\sync port) is made of fairly lightweight plastic and generally feels "flimsy"
Overall, I like the set of straps and the adapter and will continue to use the neck strap until it can be replaced with The ULTIMATE Breakaway Lanyard Key-ID-Badge-Reel Holder.
Well, after lo these many years, the Danglet finally gasped its last, and seduced by the nifty colors and silicone manufacture, I decided to buy another of what had by now become its many many competitors, and thus bought the Bluecell Baby Blue Silicone Neck Strap. On the third day of ownership, I fell asleep in it (something I did regularly with the Danglet with no problems), and when I awoke the metal clasp and lanyard had separated from the part that snaps into the iPhone. In short, BROKEN ON DAY THREE.
The idea of always having your phone at hand and findable is excellent. But you need to have confidence in the strap holding your expensive iPhone and protecting it from a devastating plunge to the ground.
These much less expensive silicone versions look -- and obviously are -- much less secure than the Danglet, and I will not be buying another of these flimsily constructed silicone straps for my iPhone. Danglet or nothing.
