If you are an iPhone user than you probably know what it feels like when it accidentally slips out of your pocket. Or you hand. Or from a friend’s hand. You get the picture. We’re talking about those times when we lose hold of our precious device. Well, fear no more because there is something that can help us all: the Kenu Highline iPhone leash. This is a coil leash you can attach to the iPhone, with one end plugging into the charging port of the phone and it’s held in place by a thin polycarbonate snap-on case. On the other end of this leash there is a Kevlar loop that you can fasten to the belt loop, the zipper of you jacket or wherever you want.
The design of the new Kenu Highline iPhone leash makes sense, at least in practice. This is applicable if you use you iPhone within 2 inches of your pocket. With the leash you get to keep you phone from dropping out of your pocket or hands but you somehow lose the flexibility to do usual things like putting your phone on a dashboard or plugging it into a speaker and leave it there. In order to be able to do that you need to unclip your phone from the leash first. That’s not really a big inconvenience because the attaching becomes easy with some practice. If I could do it, anyone can.
Kenu Highline iPhone leash is a really intelligent invention for those who want total control of their iPhones, whether you’re taking pictures from a moving car, or you’re into mountain climbing and you don’t want your precious phone to drop into a bottomless pit.
Kenu Highline iPhone leash – availability and pricing
The Kenu Highline iPhone leash is currently available for iPhone 5 and 5s and is available starting this month. You can buy the normal one for $35 or if you have an older iPhone, you can get the 30-pin version which costs $20.
All in all, the Kenu Highline iPhone leash is something really useful and it comes at a reasonable price. It’s just a matter of getting used to it, that’s all, but at the end of the day it’s the safety of our iPhone that really matters, right?
