How to create your own DIY mobile phone cradle

You can make a handsfree kit using just an elastic band.

NO SPACE OR storage for your mobile phone in your car? Then follow this tip and go all MacGyver on your car.

Grab yourself an elastic band and thread it through your car’s air vent and then secure the loops around your phone. Et voilà, a cheap and easy way of securing your phone to your car. This stops it from flying around the cabin as you drive and it doesn’t take up any valuable space.
