Designed for the Graft Concepts Leverage i5 iPhone5 case, this custom backplate incorporates a spin wheel that, together with a fabric strap, improves the one-handed usability of the phone.
Looped around the middle finger, the strap secures the phone to the hand and increases thumb reach. The spin wheel allows the phone to be used in any orientation while strapped.
The spin wheel mechanism is low in profile, 2.4mm thick.
Fabric is chosen as the strap material for its comfort factor, as well as its flatness when folded down, to minimise protrusion when the phone kept in a pocket.
