Yes! L!NK is safe for your smartphone. Phone manufacturers have been using magnets in phones for quite some time. Modern smart phones contain a flash drive which, unlike a computer hard drive, has no moving components and, therefore, cannot be harmed by magnets.
L!NK’s magnetic base attaches to your phone or hard-shell phone case with industrial-strength 3M tape. The lanyard itself has another magnet which creates a strong magnetic hold that safely secures your phone to the lanyard.
L!NK is compatible with almost all phones and cases. However, the 3M tape will not adhere as strongly to silicone-based cases, waterproof cases, or any cases with textured/rubbery surfaces. For best results, we recommend attaching L!NK directly to your phone OR to a hard-plastic case.
Each new L!NK Lanyard box should contain 1 L!NK Lanyard, 1 phone base, and 2 alcohol prep pads. If any of these components are missing or arrive damaged, contact the crowdfunding page and we will help you as quickly as possible.
When applying the magnetic base, remove the 3M tape film and press the base firmly to your phone or hard-shell case for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, the base will have successfully adhered and you will be ready to use your L!NK. We do, however, recommend letting the tape cure for a minimum of 2 hours before heavy use.
Most lanyards are used for I.D. with a badge. The D-Ring allows for you to clip your I.D. or badge while still being able to wear your phone. It can also be used for sunglasses, eyeglasses, retractable key card, keys, etc.
Yes! You are able to remove L!NK after it has been attached. To remove L!NK, all you need is a piece of dental floss (or something similar). Take the dental floss in both hands and pull it back-and-forth in a sawing motion pulling towards the base.
