Default [MOD]Wrist Strap MOD

Sup ladies/guys, today I present to you a wrist strap solution. If you are like me and don't like to put cases/covers on your phone and wish every phone had a wrist strap cling, like older phones used to have, then I have a solution for you. I have done this since I got my N5. I never like to put cases on my phone because I believe a phone is sexy, well certain phones. HTC makes the sexiest phones, in my opinion. See pictures below please.

Instructions: Take a thick needle that you can have a good grib on. A nail might work too. You might want to mark with a marker/pen where you want to place the two holes. With the needle start to wind it back and forth, Sort of like like a motion where, as if you are tightening a screw. Careful you dont pierce your hands, lol. You might have to push a bit while trying to make the holes, this should penetrate the needle. You should make the two holes vertical, unless u want them to be horizontal.

Why???
Just get the REARTH's Ringke Fusion. It already comes with wrist strap slots.

I picked both it, and the Spigen Neo-Hybrid http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00EV8...sbs_4?pi=SS115 up on release day; haven't even opened the hybrid package yet.

Don't ruin your phone when there are better options out there.

I dont like cases or anything on my phone. I have a leather case on my belt, thats all i need and my wrist strap. I have never broke a phone in the past 10 years, and only i had on it was a wrist strap on it.

Then you may want to put a photo of ifixit's teardown of the other side of the back so people know they aren't piercing any part of the inductive charger

Charging port won't be touched because you would have remove the cover to put the holes =).

I didn't say anything about the charger port. The wireless inductive charging coil is on the back side of the back cover.
If you poke a hole (or 2 for that matter) in the wrong spot; there goes your wireless charging. Plus...I highly doubt neither Google nor LG will honor a warranty claim if you deliberately punched holes in the back of the phone.
