Combining a solid grip with an integrated kickstand, today’s most innovative phone ring holders firmly stick with mighty 3M sticky tape to make sure your phone is safe and easy to hold on the go. Most modern rings are also compatible with universal cell car holders, and a few will even play nice with standard wireless phones. To protect your cell from accidental drops, these devices employ a shock absorber feature. This way, they keep your phone securely rooted in place while you travel. There are a few key features to look for when choosing the right holder for you.
The first, of course, is size. Today’s ring holders are much smaller than the originals, which had to be kept within a shirt sleeve or tucked into one of those handy carrying cases we used to have. They’re mostly made of either silicon clay or strong plastic, but some are made of clay that looks very real, although I’m sure it would be quite hard pressed to tell the difference. Depending on your usage, you may want to choose a model that is made of a much more durable material.
Depending on how much you travel, you may want a holder that can withstand drops on concrete, pavement, or ground that is uneven. It should be able to withstand a decent amount of pressure without becoming damaged, and most models should come with a rubber edger. To test this, simply set the ring on the ground as if you were about to push it into a trash can, then touch the edges of the holder against different pavement surfaces. A clay ring should move back and forth only slightly, while an unglazed one will have the entire thing to move away from you when touched. If you have to travel on hilly terrain, an edger may be a better choice, but it should be covered with a case for protection.
Once you’ve decided what kind of holder you’d like, you can start looking at the different styles available. One of the most common types is the cell phone wallet. These come in a variety of sizes and materials. They are made mainly of a clear acrylic material, but they can also be available in a soft silicone case. The cases are usually offered in black, gray, white, blue, or yellow, so there is a style available to match any phone, from pink to red to purple. These wallets can be purchased in several different sizes, ranging from small to large.
For those who use their phones for more intensive tasks, there is the small and large kickstand. There is no case compatibility with these, but they are a great way to prop up your chin rather than holding your phone between your chin and shoulder. Kickstands are made of either acrylic or rubber, and there is a wide range of sizes available, from small to extra large.
If you’re looking for a ring holder that has a bit more of a traditional feel, you might want to look at some of the more elaborate designs. These can be found both online and in brick and mortar stores. Some are made of stainless steel or satin chrome, and others feature gold-tones and other decorative elements. Most of these designs come with a comfortable carrying handle and a snap-on or Velcro-style closure, making them easy to slip on and off. They usually offer a large selection of charms and other embellishments, and they are made of a durable silicone case that will withstand lots of wear and tear. This type of ring holder is one that’s best suited for people with large or small hands, since it won’t be overly uncomfortable to have in their hands.
Those who use their phones on a daily basis may find that a hard case is much better for their needs than a soft version, because hard versions can be much more durable. If you’d prefer something less heavy but still effective, you can make sure to choose a silicone model, which are usually less expensive than other models. However, just like any other type of ring holder, it’s important to make sure that you choose one that’s made of high quality silicone and that offers plenty of good-quality charms so that you won’t have too much trouble removing your ring when you need to.
One last thing that you should keep in mind when choosing a ring holder is the kind of glaze that it uses. The traditional black clay that’s widely available in most craft stores is one that you can use with an edger. There are also versions of the clay that is glazed in different colors, so you can choose a glaze that matches the kind of jewelry you have. Glazing also gives your jewelry that professional touch, so make sure to choose a glaze that you find suitable for the design of your ring holder.
