    Part two

    now you need the ratchet connector, screw, washer, and file.

    file the corners off the plastic ratchet until the washer fits smoothly over the screw hole but you want it an exact fit

    This is what the outside will look like only the ratchet stickin out

    Part Three

    on the inside you see I put the washer then the screw threw I pressed the screw center where I wanted it I chose the bottom because on this skin it was a little thicker, the washer is to hepl keep the screw from pulling thew the silicone bigger surface area is better than a small one

    this is what it looks like on the phone I put a felt pad over the screw to keep from scratchin my berry

    I put my sons toy BlackBerry in the pictures so I could take th pictures with my Blackberry for easy downloading. It looks good hangin off my wifes purse it looks better hangin off my belt LOL.
    Just thought I'd share this with yall Have fun

    Don't think I would hang it on a purse like that though. All too easy for a thief.

    Pretty crafty my friend.

    I would think that the washer on the inside of the skin would would scratch the crap out of your BB over time though.

    I like it, but it looks like it hangs too far down. On my purse, I would be afraid of someone grabbing it or hitting it on something as I walked by.
    Maybe it would be better for guys, hanging off the pants

    i put it on to hang low cause i'm a big man and I don't like my phone pokin me in the side so I go low or sideways cases all the time. I also found some hard cases with the little square in the back so the ratchet clip would just straight install heres a pic you can see the hole in the back where the ratchet clip would install

    ok today went well my phone slipped out of the skin one time in a chair but I felt it as soon as it did it and put it back on I guess it rubbed on the material just right and slipped out of the silicone skin.

    I'm not quite as crafty. But this is how I carry mine around.
